3 out of 5 eggs Still looking for the perfect Bluetooth Headset 12/04/2013

This review is from: LUXA2 Black LHA0049-A BT-X3 Bluetooth Stereo Headphones

Pros:

Great sound!
Easily paired to a relatively older phone (LG Octane)
Light weight- comfortable
Small earcup still blocks outside sounds effectively
Controls on headset worked with older phone's Bluetooth profile
Bluetooth range better than any other set I've tried

Cons:

Talk quality is terrible
Proprietary charger

Other Thoughts:

If you are going to use this primarily to listen to music with only the occasional phone call, then I'd rate this 4-5 stars. But I wanted to use this at work so I could leave it sitting on my desk and pick it up and put it on for calls (and muffle the loud voice of my coworker in the next cubicle). Also wanted to use it for listening to music, but that was secondary. Listening to Mahler Symphony #1 as I write this, and detail and instrument spacing is excellent, especially for Bluetooth. Bass is solid and not 'Beats' excessive. Treble is a bit suppressed- but still there. Triangle was clearly audible over full orchestra. Range is excellent- at 20' through two walls reception was still solid. I was starting to LOVE these phones. Then made a phone call to my wife. ARRGH! She could understand me- but said no way would these be acceptable for a business call. My speech was quite muffled and fuzzy. I tried taking the phones off and speaking directly into the Mic hole in the bottom of the right earcup- she said that sounded fine. Put them back on my head- awful. Not sure what 'CVC' is supposed to accomplish, but clear speech is not it.

So, again, if you want them for listening to music and not making calls, I highly recommend them. But for serious office work- fail. I may keep them anyway- at this price the sound quality is amazing. But they were SO close to being perfect.
Thermaltake- if you monitor these reviews, and you believe I got a defective pair, please let me know. I would love to be proven wrong. But the fact that these sound clear when the mic is spoken into directly makes me believe that what I am experiencing is normal.
