Rated 4 out of 5 by Ashleigh Trouble shooting language change
I love this headset, however it started speaking in another language without me (intentionally) doing anything to change the setting. I spent most of my morning on live chat with a representative who took their time trying to research the problem and find me an answer (thanks for trying!)...to no avail. The representative told me that the manual didn't offer a language change option but I found in the question section where 2 or 3 other people had the same problem. The rep did offer to send me a return label so that I could do a warranty claim and that it would be replaced, but I was determined to figure out why it just changed languages. I pushed different buttons for different lengths of time and discovered that holding the pause button for approx 2 seconds will get you back to the English language! Overall, the headset is great, but that feature really needs to be noted in the manual or at least the reps need to be informed on how to solve the problem when the user can't figure it out (the answer to the other users was "there is no option to change languages in the manual, contact customer service at..." and included a phone number). Hope this helps those who's sets start speaking a foreign language!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sneezeburger Grandpa Takes a Trip...
What a long strange trip it has been. As a child of the 60's who is now well into his 60's, music and taking it with has always been important to me. Decades of progressing from sneaking an earplug from my transistor radio up my sleeve in the classroom, then came an 8 track clicking away in my car, next a cassette in a Walkman replaced by an IPod. All has now given way to mp3 downloads on a SD card that plays on my cellphone without a long cord dangling from my pocket and it just keeps getting better...Toss in a cool factor of an old man walking around with this baby wrapped around his neck and I am indeed the pride of the nursing home...Rock on my brothers and sisters rock on!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Techiediva Ease of Use
This product was very easy to set up and pair with my device. This is the first device that I did not have an issue recognize me for voice controls.

Rated 1 out of 5 by clint Worse product ever
I purchased this product after reading the reviews on this page and had high hopes. I was sold for the first week, then suddenly my headset would just power off. No problem, I purchased the extended warranty. Took it back to Best Buy got another pair. Worked for 2 weeks. I understand that in mass produced products things can go wrong. So, I gave this not just 3 tries or 4 or even 5. Finally, yesterday I returned my 8th set of headphones and have gone with a different brand. very disappointed that LG has made such inadequate product. All 8 pair only lasted about two weeks and all would just power off. I assume maybe it had something to do with sweat getting to them. Well, that's just stupid since most ppl purchase this product to work out with it. I'm hoping the competitors headphones work better. They state on their box that they are sweat resistant. DO NOT BUY THIS product!

I've owned it for only 3 months and the USB cover fell off, one bud is louder than the other (my hearing is fine), no matter how loud you make it you can barely hear it, On off switch sometimes doesn't work and you have to wiggle it, and much more. I'm going back to my 2 year old Plantronics which still works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LGQI125 Sound that's unmatched, design that's beautiful!
I've owned my HBS-800'S for about a couple of months and I cannot recommend them enough.
I use these whenever I'm on the go as they are perfectly suited to my busy life style. They are both light weight, and very flexible allowing the comfort to listen to music, or for talking.
If your environment is a little noisy, there is noise cancellation. When activated. The noise cancellation feature does an extremely remarkable job of cancelling outside noise and allowing you to enjoy music, or to talk free of distractions.
As for listening to music, the clarity is unmatched. Music bumps along with depth that matches the crystal clear quality of the sound produced by these remarkable headsets. And that they are Bluetooth wireless is very convenient for me personally, as I love taking them with me on my late afternoon runs where I can concentrate on just running without any issues of tangling wires. These headsets are life ready, and very practical for everyday use from casual talks to very active living.
Charging is quick, and these headsets keep a charge for many hours. Music time is easily over several hours and at high volumes that I can comfortably handle. Talk time feels endless, and stand by time can be for days.
I highly recommend these beautiful and very practical wireless headsets for your everyday living. The design is modern, artistic, and very unique. LG is known for very innovative, durable, and beautiful designs not found on any other electronic devices. And it's no different with these HBS-800's.
I enjoy these pro tone headsets very much and you will too.
