What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst customer service They will not honor their warranty. So please get clarification on the product before you purchase anything dealing with LG. I purchased the wireless headset from AT&T less than a year ago and she was placing it in her ear and it just came apart.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good quality When you receive a call the other end can’t not hear you very well . Sounds like you have a pillow on your face and they will not refund your money only exchange for another head set. Never again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disposable item and horrible customer service I bought 2 of these in Sept 2016. Within a month of the warranty ending, both (BOTH) headsets shorted out. I sent the first one in for repair, only for it to be returned UNREPAIRED AND DAMAGED further by the repair facility. WHen I reached out to LG customer service, I was dismissed with only the comment of “it was out of warranty” and no explanation of why it was broken by their repair facility.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the device however, i am disappointed in the battery life as i like to wear when sleeping to listen to music, sounds to alleviate pain issues. the specs say listening to it is about 6 hours which is what I am getting, but obviously, like to sleep longer than that. i also want to learn how to use the device as a dual device for listening to music and use my phone but have yet to work through the instructions on how to do so. i have been trying to find out if there is a way to either upgrade the battery or replace the existing one without success and would appreciate any information you have that might help solve this issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great headset Received these as a gift Amazed by the external speaker function. Works well with Google Talk to Text. Does not work so well as a speakerphone but using the earbuds alleviate any problems. Also have been able to listen to music using the external speakers without my boss realizing it. Placement of the call button and volume control is a little awkward since I tend to use just my right hand and I am accustomed to an older model headset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent battery life and pretty rugged I’ve had it for a while now. It may surprise you know know that I don’t really use it to work out, I use it at work. These are some pretty tough headphones honestly, they handle getting beat around, metal shavings, welding slag, the whole nine yards and then some. At the end of the day they still charge up and work like a champ!

Need to know why when I'm talking with someone they can hear the back ground noise

Asked by: Coco48
Hello Coco48, sorry to hear about your experience. The HBS-A100 do not have noise cancelling and therefore depending on the volume of the background noise, the person your are talking to may be able to hear it. ^AC
