5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The Price is great. it works like a champ. My wife even liked too... So I ordered another. New egg did it again with free Delivery and it was early to boot!

Cons: Didnt quite care for how it was packaged... but not going to knock off an egg for that.

Other Thoughts: Even though it is cheaply priced. I have never had a problem with LG. so don't let the price fool you. it does take a bit to get used to.. wearing it . but after about an hour or so you cant tell it's there.

4 out of 5 eggsHonest opinion

Pros: Very attractive looking ear piece

Cons: Ear bud does not rotate to get proper fit, it just lifts to fit into ear which I found to be very odd as all other Bluetooth's that I owned rotated. One ear bud does not fit all sizes.
Constantly slipped out of my ear even with the clear ear piece that fits over the ear, which by the way was very comfortable. I was going to recommended because of the price, but even at $12.99 (originally $49.99) it's not worth the discomfort. I literally tried to get this ear piece to stay in my ear for more than 15 minutes. At the point I put it away and disconnect it from my phone.

Other Thoughts: I intend to return it. If I hadn't lost my very well made other Bluetooth (which I purchased from Newegg at a great discount as well) I wouldn't have need to purchase this one.

2 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Clarity & Incredible Ear Pain

Pros: *Outstanding Clarity
*Incredible Range
*Superior Battery Longevity
*Aesthetically Pleasing
*Compact

Cons: *Prolonged Comfort
*Painful If Left On For Prolonged Periods Of Time

Other Thoughts: Great little bluetooth device, other than the fact that I cannot wear device for longer than thirty minutes before my ear starts throbbing in pain, Which is why I only gave item two stars. For call clarity, range and battery longevity; I would give this device five stars.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing value!

Pros: Easy to connect, great range, great sound quality, inexpensive, what's not to love? I liked it so much, I ordered another one.

After the initial mating of the BT, it mates automatically every time now. The first BT headsets I've had were so bad, I ended up throwing them away, This one, people have told me they didn't even know I was using a headset.

I'm also hard of hearing, but this headset is almost loud enough which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars.

Cons: The power button is awkwardly placed so that it's easy to touch while adjusting the HS in the ear or the volume.

The volume could also be higher. As someone who is hard of hearing, I don't like to wear my hearing aids when I drive so it would help if the HS could be adjusted a little louder.

Other Thoughts: For $12.99 shipped, I LOVE it!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: works good battery lasts a long time

Cons: Had to adjust arm for wrapping around the ear. A little heat and you can mold it to fit pefect

Other Thoughts: Wish it came with more replacement ear holders incase it brakes. Otherwise you will have to order another one

3 out of 5 eggsThe Headset

Pros: This headset in itself is awesome because it is cheap, has noise canceling, and isn't all that bulky like some competitor's products. The sound quality is great and the way the ear piece was designed, to hook in the ear to prevent noise bleeding from outside sources, was genius.

Cons: On the low side I am having difficulty understanding what ear this thing was molded for. While the ear piece, in design is sound, the crazy thing is about a quarter inch too long.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line is that this bluetooth headset is one of the best values you will find with the features it has. If you plan on wearing this headset for more than a few hours at a time you may have a little bit of an ear ache. Don't let that steer you away from a good deal though.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks fine

Pros: Works well with my LG incite. button works fine. they are handy. i like the color too. nobody never complained about not hearing me(without me being loud).

Cons: Had trouble to figure out how to get it in my ear in comfortable way. i have used other bluetooths before but this took a while to get a comfortable zone.

Other Thoughts: The reason i bought this brand is to use the same charger that i have for my phone for bluetooth also. this helps to just have one charger at home or car and live with it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat until.....

Pros: It sounds great for voice and fit comfortably in my ear. Stayed in my ear while doing light chores in the yard.

Cons: Not much for music.
Cheap plastic horseshoe shaped ear attachment right at the ear bud snapped. A little heavy to stay in my ear without the ear attachment. Haven't used it since because I have to hold it to my ear like the phone.

Other Thoughts: It was on sale and I liked it. I wish it would have been a little more durable.

1 out of 5 eggsPoorly manufactured headset - qualty problems

Pros: Good design.

Cons: The headset I received hummed and clicked while in operation and after a few minutes heated up noticably. LG used to make good headsets, but it looks like this one is manufactured poorly.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

Pros: I have owned a lot of bluetooths, this one works great when you are running water to wash hands. Other bluetooths kill the ears of the person on the other end.
works great with my Samsung phone. The price is cheap.

Cons: It hard to get the charger plugged in, also can be stubborn to turn on.
