What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but power button is flaky Connects ok, problem is getting the power button to work. Initially it worked right, then about a month into using it, the button started to be a pain to turn on and off. Now you have to guess at what angle to press the button to turn them on or off. Right at a year the button is so flaky to turn them on and off, its a pain to use now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound horrible Bluetooth reception. Bought this a couple months ago and am not satisfied. The sound is great but the Bluetooth cuts in and out with my phone on my hip holster. Shouldn't do that with what I paid for it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quick charge, Fair sound, Bad mic, Feelin vibs I would recommend it to someone that would use it for entertainment. I like neither yelling nor being yelled at, so I would not recommend this product to someone for calls. Living in the Portland region, I also like not worrying about moisture killing it. I purchased this product roughly 2 months ago when my last LG had an earbud disconnect due to normal use. (The mic worked great; I was told it was better than the mic on my phone.) I like the fast charge, the accompanying app and the sound quality of this headset. Within the app one can modify all sorts of features; it's really great. (I'd like more language options) ***The vibrate feature can not adjusted. Only on/off and if it is set to off, it still vibrates on when powering on/off.*** I DO NOT LIKE THE MICROPHONE. (Can you hear us LG? I'm not the only one.) Like other reviews I've read, my callers hear lots of background noise and have issues hearing me. I find myself yelling just to be heard. Today the battery dies after less than four hours of use (not continuous use either). I will be returning to the store I purchased them from and get a new replacement LG. I sure hope LG has fixed the mic issue. I probably wouldn't need a phone if I just yelled all the time....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Purchased 5 for Christmas I purchased 5 for Christmas, all are going back tomorrow. No noise cancelling, the called party can hear all kinds of background noises, static, the call keeps dropping off. Worst headset we have owned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't stay on I've had this headset for about 4 months and about a week ago they just started randomly turning off and on. They will say power off, then power on and connected and will do that over Andy over until I shut them off. I turn them on again and it will happen maybe 10 mm in later or 5 min later but it happens again. Also, the phone features have never worked, I can't answer a call and and when I make a call no one can hear me. They are useless, going back to my wired apple headphones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible for the person you're talking to I bought this to use while driving a company vehicle and working outside which sometimes is during poor weather conditions. I had a LG set prior to this one that was absolutely awesome but died due to rain and sweat which is why I chose LG and one designed for wet conditions. To my dismay the people I am talking to tell me over and over that they can't understand me, my phone sounds terrible, and call me back when you're not on that thing. I went back to the Verizon store to trade it in but was told my 14 days is up so there was nothing they can do. It really sux to spend this amount of money on something you can't use. I suggest looking for a different model or brand than this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They are a great design with one flaw Have had my pair for a year. Fantastic design, great feel, pretty good sound for how durable these are. But fix the microphone issue that seems to be the issue throughout every model. Less than a month in and no one can hear me on the phone.
