" ...  Unfortunately it didn't work for me I had high hopes but I have people telling me that they couldn't hear me because the mike wasn't picking up my voice.  ...  "

comment
" ...  It only lasted 3 months then it kept cutting off my calls. ... still kept dropping calls randomly at only a couple of seconds in length. ... I will never buy another Jabra, I am very disappointed in Jabra.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I've asked the person on the other end, multiple times, to tell me if they heard any difference as I activated the feature and it was hardly noticeable.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Difficult to evaluate. ... Buttons are not clearly marked and takes some getting used to in order to determine which button does what. ... Turned out that while the voice feature is OK, neither Alexa nor Siri feature is all that great or valuable. ... What was Jabra thinking when they designed the 65e?  ...  "
comment
" ...  I work in a noisy environment while still needing to talk on the phone to clients ... While testing it my friend on the other line could hear everything in the surrounding environment, including a motorcycle (not a Harley) idling across the street at my neighbors house.  ...  "

" ...  I use this Bluetooth for long hours of the meeting but when there is distortion in the call everyone confidently says that it's me , ... ( and then I have to disconnect the call an reconnect it back to sort out the issue  ...  "
comment
" ...  I definitely could not use it for work which is the biggest reason I have a headsets long multiple conferences calls a week. ... Some of which I am a listener other in which I am an active participant where a number of people need to hear what I am saying clearly. ... Best example would be my wife could hear a squeaky shopping cart wheel but not my voice asking which type of tomatos for the salad.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Pros: Definitely the call quality was great, much better than Bose.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I completed an exhaustive search trying to find a neckband headset that would provide good call quality. ... I have had zero complaints about my voice quality when talking on the phone. ... However, according to my wife, she can't even tell when I am on my headset vs. holding my phone. ... I use these mostly for taking calls throughout the day, and they are perfectly comfortable for 30-60 minute calls.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Not many manufacturers are focused on getting both sound and call quality in the same products.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Solid enough call quality to hold teleconference meetings  ...  "
comment
" ...  For this use case, it's a great product - I can hear subtle nuances in people's speech (like hard to detect regional accents) and people can understand me, even if I'm in a loud environment (like driving my car). ... + very good headset for voice (phone conversations)  ...  "
comment
" ...  These headsets worked a while and have very nice call Quality and sound however now they continually turn off and on by themselves.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The noise cancellation also never worked well, I recieved lots of complaints from callers about it.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The negative, if there is one, is that the noise cancellation on the 65e is almost unnoticed, and appears to work only when the headset is actively playing. ... Additionally, the barely perceivable noise cancellation has began a pronounced clicking noise in my right earpiece. ... This problem is remedied by switching the noise cancellation to hear through or off.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Unfortunately the noise cancellation system started failing in the right ear in only a few months. ... Upon receiving said headset I turned them on to find that they buzzed when you enable the noise cancellation.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The flat cable is not flexible: move your head and the earbuds are pulled out of your ear ... The large thickening of the cable (that is the battery) is heavy and, like the flat cables, has a tendency to pull out the ears and then drops to the floor. ... -Look for "on the ear buds" that have small, thin cables that don't tug the earbuds out ... Avoid these buds as they have all that wrong: the cables are stiff, hard, and the 'around your neck' part of the system is heavy, bulky, stiff, and pulls the entire thing off your neck, as it did for me and now I am out the money and out the earbuds.  ...  "
