B. Mowry – I’m happy with the quality and size of this bluetooth. My concern is that the ear bud is like a “funnel” – which I think is supposed to help with outer noise reduction. But, it doesn’t stay fitted within the ear – as with models that have the rubber tip. This makes staying in place completely dependent on the plastic loop. I like that the loop can be flipped and used in either ear. But, I imagine it will break at some point. I’ve had another model of a Plantronics Bluetooth for a couple years, and the replacement rubber tips and earloops are substandard than what came with the original unit. Anticipating that this loop might break over time, I’m concerned about finding an equally nice one.

R. Gonzalez – Plantronics is a known brand of Bluetooth headsets, so I expected a good product. Being a budget for just $20 I was skeptical at first, but I was soon surprised. I love the button/switch that turns on/off the headset, that’s really easy. Also, when it turns on it tells you how many hours of talk time you have. At full charge it’s 10 hours. I think in practice it might last less, maybe 5 hours, I have yet to test it. As for sound quality you hear, the volume is kind of low but it’s acceptable. The sound picked up by the microphone is clear, my people say.

Stephanie – This works great. I wish the introductory “power on, talk time 9 hours, phone1 connected’ would go away when a call is ringing, it takes too much time. Also, I have the m50 model in my car. There is a confusing feature in each of these models: this one shows a green tab when it’s on, and black tab when off, the m50 shows a red tab when off, black when on. Maybe, Plantronics, you could add a red and green tab to the next version, to eliminate any guesswork. I really like the micro-usb charging port, all of my cell devices are micro-usb and will be for as long as possible.
