What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Microphone on this set is terrible. When on the cell phone, I get constant complaints about the other person not being able to hear me, even when in a quiet room. I have owned 3 other models and always had great performance. Do not get this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its ok I brought this and had to get it replaced in less than a year. I love the design and the flexibility of it. However it would be on my neck and my phone on my hip and its constantly saying trying to connect. That's annoying to be constantly vibrating on my neck.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2 pairs and still wouldn't act right I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LG products!! But these hurt my feelings about the manufacturer! My first pair I paid FULL price for at Verizon wireless and I forgot to register my product online. I called the number to get a representative on the line to send it back and they threw me for a loop. I had the pink pair of Tone Active. I truly loved them until the buds started going out and I couldn't hear whomever I was on the phone with. Not a good buy! And I purchased TWO PAIR!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can you hear me? Love the speakers, great sound, retractable ear buds. My biggest issue is the microphone. Constantly being told "I can't hear you" or "You sound muffled". In addition to the Bluetooth not keeping a connection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for music/But one big flaw!! I bought this headset about 2 weeks ago and i love the sound but i have to say that unfortunately the Mic. is terrible and cuts in and out and people cant seem to hear me when i am talking. I had an older model for 7yrs and never had these issues so it is slightly disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Supreme Bluetooth So I bought this headset about 6 months ago and its the best investment I've ever made. First off the price point was great I caught it on sale at my local T-Mobile. I had the previous model but I liked this one better because the ears are retrackable and it has longer range. On top of all this its way sturdier in quality and not as flimsy as previous models.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I brought these about 8 days ago. The Verdict is not completely out. I am not sure if it is the Headset or somebody elses phone. A few time, the inviduals that I am talking are not able to hear me and/or the conservation is in and out. 90 percent of the time the sound is crystal clear. Not sure if I should keep them or buy a better quality Headset. I need a headset that is Water and Sweat Resistant or Proof

Are firmware updates provided for the HBSA80? I had the HBS810, one earbud failed so I got the A80. It is a definite downgrade. Hoping there is new firmware to improve it so I can continue to like LG.

Asked by: Brujo
Hello Brujo, Bluetooth headsets do not receive updates like cellphones. ^AC
