" ...  after only 30 days of use, the cord is shorting out, making it non-usable.  ...  "
comment
" ...  But they're no better than the cheap phone cord sets that you stick in your ear.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The button on the cord is simply On/Off.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The button on the cord - because of the wire not being flexible it's hard to clip the wire to a shirt in a place that keeps it out of your face and keeps the button to hang up out of a place that it can get hit. ... Overall I would say this is about what I expected from a wired headset, the only drawbacks are the cord and the button on the cord.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The wire appeared to be defective as moving it around would reconnect it for the first few days and then it became unusable.  ...  "
