comment
" ...  Do they sound as good as my Bose noise-canceling hard-wire earphones? ... My only suggestions for improvement would be a variety of colors (my wife wants one now, and we won't be able to tell them apart), and a slightly more distinctive middle button to make it easier to locate.  ...  "

" ...  The construction feels slightly lower quality than the LGs I'm used to but they certainly don't feel flimsy. ... I don't particularly like the design of the earpiece as they don't fit quite as comfortably in my ear as the LGs earbuds. ... I don't know how I feel about how the earpieces attach to the collar. ... again, likely just a matter of getting used to the different design.  ...  "

" ...  I was looking for exceptional clear quality in phone calls for both the caller and receiver. ... I was looking for something that was easy to use, not to technical to figure out. ... The best function I think is the quality in calls. ... I tested the device before giving to my sibling and I was astonished in the the ability to be heard and to hear so clearly and most importantly outdoors or in vehicles. ... Just as clear as the calls.  ...  "

" ...  On my old set on/off was a toggle switch - easy. ... This set I must hold the button in for 3 or 4 seconds to turn it on or off.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Easy to connect too.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I prefer the previous left handed control setup, but this seems to be just as good a quality as my other mpow headsets.  ...  "
comment
" ...  You can tell because the new one has 3 buttons on one side only, they picture or mention buttons on both ends or buttons this one doesn't have. ... It has a nice voice announcement when turning on/off and when its low on battery, it would be nice if they also just added a feature where it would tell you what % is your charge.  ...  "

" ...  Has great sound and very comfortable around my neck, almost doesn't seem like I have it on.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I use these for podcast and other audio streams, many times monitoring with only one ear which is made easy with the neck band and the magnetic holders to keep the loose one out of the way. ... The mpow tips seem to use thinner material, so pushing them in further can collapse the seal.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Do they sound as good as my Bose noise-canceling hard-wire earphones? ... While not noise-canceling, the fit of the earbuds is quite good and blocks a lot of background noise, more than any other earbuds I have used.  ...  "
comment
" ...  What could be improved, the sound quality, which is adequate for some uses but not great, the volume which has to be nearly maxed out to be loud enough, it seems to conserve energy by relying on the ear canal being sealed by the rubber tip, so you have to make sure to use the right sized one. ... 18 hours seems like a lot but it isn't, its less at max volume, and it will degrade with age, so don't settle for less thinking its adequate, it won't be.  ...  "
