Works well but a couple of concerns
on 30 September 2013
The performance of the device is excellent and the sound quality over bluetooth really very good. I do however have a couple of minor concerns;
1. The mic is on the earphones, so you may lose the mic function when using a different set of earphones (you may, like me want this mainly for the bluetooth and remote control unit). I didn't see this explained in the description, and thankfully it's not a deal breaker for me, as most of the time I'll be using this to listen to music. One key selling point of this device is that you can use the unit with any 'phones of your choice. Overall I still see this as a valid plus despite the caveat above.
2. The supplied earphones pick up and amplify every movement you make and every rub they make against your clothes. It's quite disconcerting, and louder than experienced with any earphones I've previously used. I've yet to test them at the gym, but will have my old favourite earphones at hand just in case. Again, this is a plus; you're not restricted to the supplied earphones. The anti-tangle design means that the wires are flat rather than round in profile. This may be the cause of the amplified rubs and knocks.
3. When charged, the LED on the unit is meant to flash blue. Mine didn't; the red light just went off. The instructions otherwise seem OK.
All in all, for the price I paid I believe this is great value for money. I've connected to both my own HTC phone and my work blackberry without difficulty, and with good results.
