What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't believe this was discontinued!!!! I found these on A****on about 2.5 years ago, and love them. I'm so disappointed they have been discontinued, as I really want a backup pair for the time when they inevitably die, although they've been holding up really well. I cannot find anything else by this manufacturer, or any other, with the same features. First, the over-ear design keeps them securely fastened. The full enclosure makes it a bit more work to put them over your ear, but it can still be done with a single hand, especially once you get the hang of it. The full enclosure is perhaps a bit of overkill - they would probably be reasonably secure for all but the most rigorous movement if they simply hooked *over* the ear rather than all the way around, and I'd be happy to find a model like that *if* the fit could at least be adjusted, as it can on these. Also love the fact the two earpieces are connected to each other, rather than being standalone earpieces - if I need to stop using them for more than a few minutes, I just take the earpieces out of my ears, and they hang securely around my neck until I need to use them again. I don't lose track of one or both in one pocket or another, as has happened with the pairs of unattached earbuds I own. Great sound, never a problem with connectivity.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stopped working My uncle got these for me for christmas and I loved them. However, I got new headphones so I neglected these ones and when I tried to use them again they wouldnt hold a charge. It would come up that they were charging but when taken off, nothing happened. Not sure why but I didnt even have them for a year.

Is there a way to pair them to a new device without identifying which device they were previously paired with and unpairing them? A bit frustrating to have to check PC, iPad, iPhone to try to figure out what I last used them with.

Asked by: Leo789
If you are pairing the LG FORCE Bluetooth® Wireless Headset, Model # HBS-S80 to a new device and that device supports multi-pairing, depending on the new device that you are pairing the headset to, it may or may not request a PIN code. For most devices, you may have to turn on the Bluetooth on the device to search for the headset and select it from a list of available devices to pair it to the device and connect...^Ivan

How is the microphone and talking for this earphone

Asked by: sibghat88
The perception of how the microphone's quality and how talking is on the LG FORCE Bluetooth® Wireless Headset, Model # HBS-S80 Black & Gray is very subjective and will vary from one person to another and on the environment in which the unit is used in. The microphone will easily pick up your voice while talking and it will also pick up the wind in a windy environment unless you shield it from the wind...^IFV
