I bought this headset to go with my iPhone 3G on the strength of the 2009 award given by What HiFi. This is the first bluetooth stereo headset I have owned: -

good stuff:-
- sound is clear and rounded but lacks bass;
- fit is comfortable;
- survived 30 minutes of treadmill in the gym without the sound dropping out or falling off my head;
- answering calls is simple and sound is clear;
- no wires!

bad stuff;
- bass boost feature just causes distortion so is useless. The best way for more bass is to set the Bass booster EQ on the iPhone;
- whilst the fit is ok the headset is a bit fiddly to put on as I wear glasses;
- chronic interference if the phone is searching for a network;
- i've had sound drop out in some areas but I guess interference is inevitable even thought the bluetooth protocol tries to mitigate this;
- since the iPhone doesn't support AVRCP, you cant pause music or skip tracks with the headset controls. This is obviously the phones fault not the headset;
- no case or cleaning cloth is provided;

Overall pretty good but need the iPhone to support AVRCP!

I run daily. I have had over a dozen sets of headphones for use whilst running over the last 20 years. Some have been lost, most have been broken, all but one were wired. The Backbeats' were my second set of bluetooth headphones. They are by far the best 'phones I've had, in particular for ease of use (and I wear glasses), although the volume limiter can be frustrating when being used on public transport - it doesn't need to go up to 11 but 6 would have been good. However, the major criticism is the after-sales. In brief, there isn't any. The ear buds frequently detach themselves. When I finally lost one I contacted Altec Lansing with a simple request for replacements. No-one (absolutely no-one) stocks them in the UK. Finally got replacements from the US.

I am a personal trainer so listen to a lot of hard dance/ psy trance to keep me motivated; these sound as great as you would expect given the What HiFI award and price point. Equally at home playing more melodic/ vocal stuff such as Blues Brothers and Paul Weller. Not having wires when you train is a revelation, no more ripping headphones out of your ear or iPhone crashing to the ground! Super comfortable even with a wicking headband over and secure even without. You should not experience connection problems or interference providing you switch airplane mode on.
