3 out of 5 eggsHappy as a tick

This review is from: LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)

Pros: As of convenience this is the best headphones I haver ever owned. evened talked a few people in buying their own. worth every penny, if the wire was reinforced. my only issue is the wire coming out of the headphones is starting to fray.

Cons: wire coming out of the headphones is starting to break. it would help if was reinforced where it comes out of the neck wrap.

Other Thoughts: if it wasn't for the wire showing, this would be the best headphones I have ever owned. If I can not get this one fixed, I will replace it with another wireless. I'm hoping I can get this one replaced, but I am trying to figure out how to do that on this site. any help?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat BTHS

This review is from: LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)

Pros: Excellent battery life.
Sound is pretty decent.
Quick charge time.

Cons: None come to mind.

Other Thoughts: I really like this headset. I've tried 3 different ones within the same price range ($50-$80) and was not impressed. I like the design of having the controls on a neck piece. I have used these for just about everything in my normal day to day routine. Music (used primarily for this), phone calls, movies on my phone, and on my PC.

I would recommend this headset. Especially if you are wanting wireless sound from your mobile device.

4 out of 5 eggsbetter than expected

This review is from: LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)

Pros: comfortable, light weight, works great with Android, pretty good range

Cons: signal starts to drop out when you get a few metal objects between source and headphone - regardless of distance (to be expected with obstacles being metal, after all). Other obstacles don't seem to effect them as badly.

Other Thoughts: I had been wanting a set of these headphones for a while, but the cost was somewhat prohibitive - until they went on sale as a Shell Shocker...price dropped below fifty bucks so I got them. they are comfortable to wear through an entire shift, and block out a lot of background noise

5 out of 5 eggsSurprise!

This review is from: LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)

Pros: Surprisingly great headset! I work in manufacturing and when you have to wear a smock and hairnet the ability to control your audio, have texts read to you and not have a cable running under your clean room gown is a huge boon. Sounds good, 12+ hours battery life continuous use, and if there are no walls in the way you can get a good dozen feet away from your source before it has a hard time streaming. Great for chores around the house.

Cons: The only con I have is pretty minor. It looks kind of funny. The perpetually blinking indicator and odd shape drooping around your neck attracts more conversation than an introvert like me cares to enter into. On the bright side... it wears pretty well tucked under a collared shirt!

Other Thoughts: I purchased the extended warranty out of fear that the cabling running from your neck to your ears would be flimsy and prone to shorts from flexing (a fear firmly engrained by my experience with countless pairs of Skullcandys) but there doesn't seem to be much strain in any direction that will contribute to this. I won't say NOT to get the warranty as I haven't had them long enough to judge the battery, but the build is surprisingly good!

4 out of 5 eggsBought this to use with Nexus 7 FHD

This review is from: LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)

Pros: Light weight, long battery life, good sound, have used 30+feet away direct line of sight and had good connection. Walls give issue. controls easy to work.

Cons: Bought to use with nexus 7 and skype. Issue is with skype not headset. sometimes skype does not go to headset, don't know why. Microphone on skype app is crackly and choppy, also sounds a little weird. But if I use recording app (not skype) microphone works great. Also can't pick up calls on skype with it. Not device's issue, but skype stinks at updating their software. Was hoping not to have to have cell phone anymore. SIGH......

Other Thoughts: I have a big neck, wish the unit was a bit bigger. But would be a issue then for tiny ppl.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for chores and exercise

This review is from: LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)

Pros: I have had these for 11 months with my iphone. They have worked very well during that time. I use them while doing yard work, chores around the house and when running.

Sound is fine for me - I listen to music and podcasts. Simple button click to pause, advance, or control volume.

They have very good range. I can walk 20 feet away from my iphone and still get reception. They are very comfortable around my neck and I often forget they are are there. They can hide under a shirt collar to be less conspicuous.

I have only used them a few times for voice calls so I can't really judge that use.

I use them hours every week and only charge them once per week.

Cons: The do bounce against my collarbone when I run. I wish they had a pad or cushion for that. If I have a higher/tighter neck shirt then it pads the bouncing. I tolerate it. And after I get sweaty they tend to stick more at my neck and not bounce as much.

1 out of 5 eggsLG Bluetooth headset

This review is from: LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)

Pros: The only bluetooth headset that supposed has information about the multipoint feature and its brutal. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Spend more time turning it on and off to get it to reconnect. I had a 5 year old pair of bluetooth headset that mentioned nothing about multipoint when I bought them but they worked flawlessly until the battery wouldn't hold a charge any longer.

Cons: Multipoint does not work as it should. Constantly resetting.
