I bought this and it is a POS. For some odd reason and even CS can't explain it, it turns the volume on my phone down. I had a jawbone and it NEVER did this. You could change volume to Bluetooth via phone, but not the other way around. Also it has a hard time connecting to consecutive calls. I will be returning this and getting a jawbone IRA.We'll see how that one works.
I've used Jawbone earpieces for years now and this one is the worst by far.
First, the volume won't turn-up high enough. I have my phone bluetooth and the earpiece volume maxed and it just doesn't sound very loud. It's useless in crowded areas.
Second, neither earbud fits my ear well. Both sit well outside my ear canal, which exacerbates the first problem. Unless I'm no where near any other source of noise whatsoever, I'm not hearing a thing.
Third, when you do get frustrated by not hearing anything your first reaction is to try to press the earpiece harder against your ear. Well guess where the connect/disconnect button is? It's right where you need to press in order to hear better. I probably hang-up on 5+ people a day pressing this thing to my ear trying to hear better.
And finally, enough with the double-tap redial. That is a truly awful feature. If the connect/disconnect button gets pressed twice, it redials the last number. Do you find pocket-dialing annoying? Just use this device and you'll easily place dozens of pocket dials per day.
My rating? 0 out of 10. I'll probably get mad over the next few days and stomp it in a parking lot somewhere -- but I'll try to return it to Best Buy first.
Hello everyone! Have you heard the talk about - AZON DEAL SHOPPER (do a search on google)? Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my cousin saved an awful lot of money with it. They used that small yellow box, that is located on the site, to find a 70% discount on a printer from Amazon. You may be able to find an interesting item on Amazon at a interesting price using this tool.Just checked and there are a few deals on this product
