NEW!! Plantronics Bluetooth wireless headphones BackBeat 903+ Retail Packaging
Dont buy this head set if you are somone who doesn't like to change your gadgets everyweekend... No doubt everyfunction and comfort level is outstanding but for max 2 months- I guess that is its lifespan... I have a 2nd replaced headset and again I am facing the same problem... Why would I own a Bluetooth head set when it switches off while moving my head or turning my head??? I thought the 1st one was a defected piece but the new one is facing the same problem too...
I bought the set 3 days ago and I am facing the same issue. The bluetooth is not really wireless, the music stops if I am keeping the phone more than 30cm away from the headset. The only way I can use them is to keep the phone on my shirt's pocket but never turn your head to the left ;)) Maybe it is a feature, that every time you cross the street and you turn your head to the left, to see if any car is coming, the music also stops so you can even hear that there is no danger and it's safe to cross :)) Very very disappointed, hopefully I can return them and I will be refunded. I tried it with 2 phone (S2 and IPhone 5s) and with an iPAD3. Same results, so clearly Plantronic's issue.
I don't have experienced such issue. It works even if I'm 5 meters away from my phone.
I don't like the earbuds not closing the ear, so that all the exernal noise is fully audible, which is a problem if you are in the subway, for instance.
Second issue is that even if it connects with PS3 and passes the tests it won't be used at all by the system as an headset, no matter how you configure the game and the PS3.
