    2.0 out of 5 stars Sending these back 29 Jan 2006
    By Rich
    Well, when I first heard about these a year or so ago I was quite excited, because they sounded exactly like the kind of thing I wanted. Wireless headphones I could use with my laptop's bluetooth connection that included a microphone so I could use MSN voice chat. I also have a lot of mp3s on my mobile phone (a Sony Ericsson K750i), and often use the hands-free kit that came with it, so that seemed like another use.
    Having recieved them in the post, having paid not a small amount of hard-earned money for them, my first impression on taking the headphones out of the box was that they are huge. None of the marketing pictures do justice to how big the earpieces actually are. They look like you're wearing a pair of oval-shaped biscuit-sized marshmallows over your ears. My girlfriend actually asked me if it came with a bag to wear over my head when I'm wearing them. So not a good start. I was, however, will to concede their appearance if they performed as well as advertised.
    Pairing them with my phone was easy enough, as was pairing them with the dongle that's supplied with them. The problems began when I tried to have them paired to both at the same time, which the advertising material proudly announces to be possible. In practice I find that whenever they are connected to the dongle they keep dropping the connection to my phone. None of this "smart switching" as advertised.
    The only good point I have found is that sound quality from the dongle to the headphones is very good, but if you want a good pair of wireless headphones there a many that are just as good and cheaper. Sound quality from both my phone and my laptop is incredibly poor. It's like listening to my music over the phone.
    The worst point of all I found to be the microphone.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very smart! 12 Jan 2005
    By Dauvit
    Brilliant! Bluetooth audio headphones (hi-fi quality) with the option of them doubling as a handsfree... what does this mean? Quite simply, you can listen to music wirelessley from any device with a headphone jack - using the supplied dongle - and when a call comes to your Bluetooth-enabled phone, you can take the call, returning to the music when the call ends.
    Better than that, if your music player is capable of transmitting over Bluetooth with the A2DP profile, you can listen to music WITHOUT using the dongle. I have used it with both my stereo AND with my iPAQ and it is easy to use and reliable with a battery life that is quite exceptional for a small device (3 hours or so on a single charging).
    The whole thing is well designed - the headset is a trifle large, but not heavy or cumbersome - with the charger being capable of charging both the headset and the dongle simultaneously or separately.
    The microphone for making or taking calls folds away into the headset.
    The only drawback really is the price, but, in my opinion, this is an essential purchase for anyone who loves mobile technology.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Does more or less what it says on the tin 28 July 2005
    I've had these bluetooth headphones for about seven months, mainly for use while I am commuting to and from work.
    I am no audiophile but the quality of the reproduction is very good - the transmitter is attached to my iPod.
    But I do have one reservation which is worth mentioning if you are planning an actively walking around with the Bluetake: as you move around or bump into the transmitter, you can easily lose the connection which is very annoying. If you are sitting on a train, they are fab, walking from the station to the office involves putting it very carefully into a jacket pocket or putting it in a bag with tons of padding - and don't try to run across a road or you'll lose the connection.
    Overall, I would say it is a good product, but there is an important caveat. As it is the only bluetooth headphone I have ever used, I cannot say if it is the fault of this model or a limitation in the technology.
