Bought this item a little over a month ago. Worked very well the first few days, especially on Skype, and it was a joy speaking to my fiance who is in another country...but pretty soon, I started hearing crackling noises. At first, I thought it was the skype connection, but soon, more problems followed. The sound would go on and off like a poorly tuned radio frequency- absolutely annoying.
Suffice it to say that the left ear (where the mouth piece connects) has just fallen apart, and now I am here looking for another one.
Would I recommend this to anyone? No. But if you insist, be prepared to write a similar review in weeks. One star is all this one gets from me, I'm afraid.
