grips your ears fairly tightly so does not fall off, yet despite this tight grip is not uncomfortable because of how soft they are on your ears

Cons: the microphone quality is not good. I had my sister call me using these paired with her cheap S*****g handset. When she turned off the Air-Fi AF32 Headset, and used only her S*****g, there was a noticeable improvement in the sound quality of her voice. When she turned the Air-Fi back on, her voice became more muffled and 'distant,' soft of as if she was on a speakerphone. Considering the cost of the Air-Fi headset, I would expect a better quality of sound from the microphone.
My sister experienced frustration in using these with her S*****g phone. Sometimes they would connect and work just fine, sometimes they would connect and not work. (the caller can not hear her, and she can not hear the caller)
The use of a multifunction button is a big con. The power button is also the answer call button is also the pairing button, depending on how long you hold it. (it looks like two separate buttons but it's really all one button) You are forced to learn a proprietary morse code just to use your headset. You have to try pressing the button several times before you get it to do what you want it to do.
Other Thoughts: I tested these on my D*** laptop, using the D*** Bluetooth software. This software is terrible. This is absolutely not the fault of the MEElectronics Air-Fi AF32 Headset, but I'm just giving you a heads up... If you expect it to be easy to use this headset with Skype - think again. After 45 minutes of messing with settings, I somehow finally got both the microphone and the headphones to work with Skype. (by default, only one or the other would work.)
The laptop's bluetooth software for some reason doesn't send sound from all software programs to the Air-Fi AF32 Headset. Some programs such as MP3 player software or Youtube in your web browser work just fine, while other programs (such as the operating system sounds) don't go to the headset. I'm sure it would work better if I had an Apple product, but I don't.
I also tested the Air-Fi AF32 Headset with my M******* cell phone. Pairing them with the cell phone was very easy, but switching back and forth between using the Air-Fi AF32 Headset with the laptop and the cellphone is a cumbersome and time consuming process that involves navigating many menus. Skype defaults back to using the system sound drivers, so you have to manually switch Skype back to the Bluetooth drivers every time.
In summary, it appears that if you want to use ANY bluetooth headset with more than one device (i.e. laptop/cellphone) it's probably not worth the trouble.
