What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only good for about 6 months! I have bought several LG headphones in the past & seems like they never make it past 6 months with daily normal use. If you do decide to get a pair of these make sure you get the extended warranty because 6 months is the maximum life expectancy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mayb I bought this a few weeks ago but people on are complaining that they hear too much background noise. I am a truck driver so im not sure if the environment im in is too loud but infigure for the price And brands in device I wouldnt have that problem. Is this normal? Oh yea already threw the box away so im not sure if i can return. I actually love it for my music and movie watching. Thats great. Just the complaints of background noise. Is there something i can do about that? Its my only issue overall 8/10

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Volume control resets to low after each call I received this as a replacement to an older LG headset, overall it work's great. One beef I have is that the volume resets to low after every call. I contacted tech support, he said to do a "reset" on the headset. Completed a reset (several) and still the volume resets to low each time I want to make a new call. My older model works fine in this regard!!! I would NOT recommend this model to someone that the volume control issue is important. I wonder how long the volume button will be functional if you have to keep setting correct volume every time?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost perfect My husband and I have used the LG Wireless headsets for several years. Since I love to always have the latest and greatest, so when the retractable earbuds were introduced, I naturally had to have a pair. I love the discrete feel, but quickly learned, because of the all-plastic design, they lack flexibility and easily break. I've had two pairs, with my second one recently breaking while taking off my coat. Despite of the breakable design, I love everything else about them and am shopping for my new pair. Maybe I have learned how to be more careful with them and this third pair will last as longer.
