An excellent headset...,

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nokia BH-505 Bluetooth Stereo Headset Ice is an excellent set of ear phones which I can highly recommend for all users of anything which is bluetooth enabled. I found this very simple to use plus the fact there is very clear instructions which come with the device this gives clear instructions not only how to pair the device with your bluetooth enabled device it also has a full diagram with point by point arrows showing how to operate your headset plus where exactly to place the headset on your head for comfort reason also for it is easier for the ear buds to be placed in your ears to make it easier to hear clearly. It is recommended by Nokia is you wear it as in wrap around area around the back of you head just above the base of the your skull this is very comfortable plus I do believe this is security conscious as if you are out walking a passerby will not notice very clearly that you have head phones on also it does not move around while walking or doing an exercise class so therefore it would be very comfortable to use over a period of time. With placing it here I did find this better for another reason I like to listen to music when I am out walking the dog, with other head sets when I bent down to see the dog to give it attention the wires always fell in front of the dog or they got in the road while I was working with the dog this headset stayed securely where I placed it and did not get in way of the dogs.
Also due to your comfort especially with the fact that is no two people with the same size of ears the headset is also provided with different sizes of ear buds and ear pads, I found this particularly useful as I have a very small area where the ear bud goes and I was always finding it difficult to get headsets/earphones which sat comfortably in my ears and stayed in my ears.
Regarding the charging of the headset, this does not take a long time to fully charge your headset and it is also recommended that you do not leave your headset in constant charge as this damages the battery. If you do leave the headset on constant charge you can overcharge the battery which will shorten the lifetime of your headset. As the battery can be recharged and used hundreds of times but it does state the battery will wear out eventually and the battery cannot be replaced. A full charge this is shown with a green light will be able to provide twelve hours talk time, up to 375 standby hours(this is stated in the instructions as I have just received this from Vine I am unable to verify this at this stage but I will not charge this for this length of time which is just over two weeks and edit this review with my findings at a later date) and it also states it provides ten hours of music time.
I do recommend this headset because of two main reasons one of which, is that it is very easy to use, I have a Samsung phone and it took me less than ten seconds to be able to use the headset with my phone(after a full charge). This was also the case with my ipod so I do feel I will get plenty of usage with this headset. For me to use the headset all I had to do was turn the Bluetooth search on my phone, turn on the charged headset a blue light on headset flashed then the name of the headset came on within the bluetooth signal on my phone, it was immediately paired with my phone. Another reason I do like this I was able to pair it with my fathers Nokia phone also my brothers Blackberry phone, therefore I feel no matter what phone or mp3 player as long as the phone/mp3 player is bluetooth enabled it will be able to be paired with it.
My second reason why I recommend this headset is due to the fact that I was surprised how clear the signal was even when the player or phone was in another room, and the third reason is the clarity of the music was perfect to my ears and when using it with my phone I was able to follow the conversation very clearly and the other person said they could hear me clearly. Also I did like the fact that I was able to press the play/pause button while I was talking on the phone and mute or unmute the microphone which was handy when I wanted to say something but did not want the caller to hear what I was saying. Also if your phone can be voice activated you can still do this while using the headset by holding the answer button for two seconds. To answer or end a call all you do is press the same button once. I found this headset very easy to use in all areas which is another big plus for me
I highly recommend the Nokia Bluetooth Steres Headset BH-505 and well worth the money.
