works fine

Pros: works as advertised, both with windows driver and online driver ("CSR_Harmony" IS the device driver).

Cons: range isn't what i was hoping for, though it could also be the device in question. used a USB range extender with moderate success.

works, though uncomfortable

Pros: works nicely with good sound

Cons: rather uncomfortable, it sits on your ears and pulls.

Overall Review: the device seems have it's own buffering.. you can be 5 minutes or more behind if you are roaming alot from your bluetooth device (desktop in this case). which is nice if you are just listening to music, though annoying if you are looking for sound/video syncing, like games and movies.

DOA

Pros: features

Cons: couldn't get the device past Q-code 06, partnered with POST code beeps (one long, 2 short). lack of documentation on the error codes. no USB 3 header (inconvenience)

Overall Review: I didn't bother calling support, after narrowing the possibilities down to the motherboard without any changes in error, I simply sent it back for a refund, which was approved with little effort.
