What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trouble with MIC I have had plenty of Bluetooth Headsets from LG and never had a problem. I talk on the phone for over 7 hours a day because of my job and with multiple people/ conference calls. Bought this pair at an at&t store and within the first 3 days everyone complained that i sounded to far or sounded muffled. I requested an exchanged. It was better for the first two weeks and found the same issue after. I believe the mic is in an weird position. I find people telling more often they cant hear me when im sweating. However i still find people telling me they cant hear me in other occasions. My co-worker also have the same headset and has same issue. I am very comfortable using LG brand, i cant seem to go with a different brand. Disappointed that i paid for an expensive headset and having trouble with it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good for exercise Great expectations, but disappointing over time. Paired with my Apple Watch, as long as I don't sweat it works fine. However, after only a few minutes of being active, it begins to sound like a poor reception, or that there's a loose connection. The sound quality is excellent, though. But when the skipping starts, I want to chuck them down a well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great head set I have had mine for about a year. Have to be honest... When I 1st got them I thought they were average. As time goes on the more I love them. Battery last forever, quick charge and take a real beating. Believe the sound has actually gotten better as they have gotten older. Have had zero problems and never even think about working or playing outside without them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horriblen 2 failure and less then 1/2 a year Bought 2 if these mainly for the sweat protection. First ones internal batteries over heated and was burning my neck. Then just shut off. Second one it kept turning off and on, on it's on and one time i set it to off and it was still on. I was such a fan of LG blue tooth but this experience has made me look else where.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great headset! Nice features! But why so small??? I want to be clear.... I love this headset! The sound, the speaker phone and battery life etc.... but this is way to small. I feel like Lg but too much thought in to this one. Is should have some kind of extension or something. Im 6'1 220 and pretty fit. But this barely fits around my neck and the cords are short as well. I know its for working out but this headset is definitely not one size fits all. It sad because other than that. I love this headset. So if you have a skinny neck....this headset is for you"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bluetooth Absolutely love this Bluetooth. I have very sensitive ears so having the speaker option is wonderful. Also like having an alternate option in tracking activity.
