This review is from: MEElectronics EP-AF9-BK-MEE Black Stereo Bluetooth Wireless Headset
Sound quality vs direct 3.5mm connection with the same jbud j4 headphones, is nearly indistinguishable, when range is within 1-2m. Bought device because the jack on my n900 is worn out, and only available through a middle man shipping from the Netherlands, i bought this to tide me over until then, but think i may just keep using it for on the go usage, saving the 3.5mm for stationary connections to an amp.
Pairing is easy, very lightweight, built in mic/call button, works with all bt devices i've tested it on (laptop internal, usb bt adapter, n810 bt pairing). Device is sturdy, and very well designed/engineered.
Got it at a steal
Battery life- i get about 4-5 hours of music playback with my n900, thats about whats expected, but not up to par for a full days usage for me.
Blinking led whenever in use, not a big deal, easy to cover, and expected with about any BT adapter.
Can't charge/use at the same time, would be nice to have a small 500mah lipo w/ 5v boost to be able to re-charge while not near a usb source while still being able to use. No big deal though.
I replaced the 100mah 3.7v lipo cell in the device (had to disassemble, easy, just clips to detach with your standard plastic prying lever tool), with a 180mah 3.7v lipo cell from an old broken s9-hd device. It was a tight fit, and soldering was tricky and a bit of a risk considering how close the contacts are, ie one slip and you could short/blow the lipo pack.
This gives me ~8hr of playback time, and it lasts all day with this simple mod. If your so inclined, a few bucks and some careful soldering, can double the battery life. Just have to find the right size cell, i got lucky having one from my s9-hd, and that it fits snugly as a replacement.
