Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Free your hands, free your life--invest in increased efficiency, greater freedom of movement and a major upgrade in mobile style with the Nokia wireless headset. This compact headset is equipped with a wireless connection, giving you hands-free control over your mobile phone without the need for obtrusive cables or wires. Designed for both looks and comfort, the earpiece fits inconspicuously in either ear, allowing you convenient and discreet access to all basic call controls-whether your phone is stashed away in your golf bag or lying on a table nearby.

In addition to freedom of movement, the Nokia wireless headset gives you freedom of choice. Because its wireless connection is based on the internationally recognized Bluetooth standard, the headset is compatible with a wide range of Bluetooth-equipped phones from Nokia and other manufacturers. (Compatible phones must support the Bluetooth 1.1 specification and headset or handsfree profiles.)

The Nokia wireless headset matches Nokia's distinct design with advanced Bluetooth technologies to offer you ingenious and easy control over calls. The answer/end button lets you take and make calls, redial, and switch the audio back and forth between handset and headset. A separate volume control lets you raise and lower the call volume as you move from place to place--from bedroom to boardroom, café to conference, presentation to party.

Phones that support voice dialling are usually a good match for the Nokia wireless headset. Just activate voice dialling and let your voice direct your call while your hands are freed. To maximise call security, the headset also supports encryption of the wireless connection for compatible phone models.

Call quality is good, it is light on the ear and battery life is acceptable. Only problem (and it is a big one!) the ear clips keep breaking. I purchased two of these for my wife and I and both have broken.
Replacement ear clip parts are also impossible to find in the UK. I have been bounced around SEVEN different Nokia numbers this morning and no one can/wants to help. Nokia's customer service is non terrible.
You'd be well advised to buy a sturdier product and avoid this inevitable expense.

Full of style - very short on substance!
I've had mine for a while - it crackles badly in use, reularly disconnects from my Nokia 3650 with no apparent reason, speech quality is dismal, and worst of all the ear clips break for a pastime. The plastic on the clips seems to separate - thi is clearly a design or manufacturing fault - that fact that replacements are in such short supply demonstrates this.
Nokia's customer sevice is non-existent as far as I can see, and they refuse to acknowledge there's any fault at all.
My advice to Amazon customer's - this product is a 5 star piece of junk - don't buy one! - you'd be better of with two cans and a piece of string.

This was the 1st bluetooth headset I bought and I wish I'd done more research. THIS NOKIA IS A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY. Seriously, avoid this one at all costs - the battery life is appalling and you'll be lucky to get a 20 minute conversation out of it before it starts beeping at you telling you to recharge it. For the money, go for something like a Jabra - much better value, longer battery life (week of use between charges and I average 1000 miles per week for business with it on all day) and will work with any make of phone unlike the Nokia.

I only wish I had read the reviews in this forum before buying the HDW-2, because almost all the criticism of this device is completely merited.
This is my first bluetooth headset, and what a dissapointment it is! The battery life is a joke - I don't think I have ever got more than about 1/2 hour talk time, and the unit frequently disconnects from the phone.
There must be better models on the market than this. There can hardly be worse. Buy something else.

This product sucks. It's uncomfortable, ridiculously fragile and not particularly good at its job. It also drains its battery (and that of your phone) rather more quickly than you have a right to expect.
I bought one, and the earloop broke three times in just over a month. The thing is, this happens to everyone apparently. Not what you expect from Nokia.
Take my advice. Buy something else, like the excellent value Plantronics or Jabra headsets - or the top-end SonyEricsson models. But don't touch this with a ten foot pole.

The main drawback of this product was the flimsy ear-clips that it came with, both were broken within a week, and on getting in touch with nokia they told me that they would be out of these clips for another six weeks because of the demand for them! Otherwise the headsets performance was ok, up to 10m without crackle was good, but again it was let down by its poor battery life. I have now returned this to amazon and will upgrade to a more expensive (but hopefully better) headset.

I'm not normally the type of person who complains, but this little piece of equipment has driven me up the wall.
The battery life is shocking, an hour and half at the best.
Very uncomfortable to wear, with the ear clip repeatedly breaking.
Probably the most frustrating thing about it is the way it just loses connection for no apparent reason.
My advice would be to opt for the Jabra, which my colleague bought at the same time and has had no problem with what so ever.

This really must be the worst product that Nokia has ever made! I've had one for sometime now, & I was convinced that there was a problem with the battery, as it ran flat SO quickly. I took the item to two different Nokia dealers, & a service centre, but they said that nothing was wrong. Their customer service is actually a joke.
I still wasn't convined that it could possibly work so badly & be ok, so I bought a new battery & guess what? It's still crap!
My advice to anyone would be, DON'T waste your money on this item. The sound quality is barely acceptable, the build quality is cheap & nasty, but worst of all, it will run flat quicker than Nokia will take your money!
