What People Are Saying

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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the Greatest I bought this for my wife for her to be able to be hands free while at work, but when she used the headset to call out, the people on the other end could not understand what she was saying, so I had her call my cell phone, and when we connected, I could not understand a word she was saying it was all garbled, like she was under water or something, I felt for the price, it should have had better quality of sound, I returned them for a refund.

Does this headset have incoming call vibration. If not which LG headset does.

Asked by: TechJoe
Yes: Press and hold the Volume (+) button for 2 seconds when the HBS-A100 is not in use (for playing music, etc.). If you turn off the vibration alerts, it will not vibrate even when a call is being received or you are out of communication range. NOTE: The vibration alert is automatically set to the ON position when you turn on the power. ^AC
