Nice! Great Value For The Price6/7/2012
The HBM-520 is a great choice for those who are wanting a "dual mic" headset with noise and echo filtering but aren't ready to shell out $100+ for a Jawbone. The earpiece is snug and comfortable and it stays in your ear without need of the supplied bracket. The overall design is sleek and the ergonomics are excellent. Pairing the unit is a breeze. As for audio quality and range, I couldn't be happier. True, it's not quite on par with the "Jawbone Prime" but for half the price I think most users will be very satisfied with their purchase. Great sound and clarity with the dual speakers; very easy to use separate controls; comfortable ear bud, with or without the ear loop; we bought 2, we are each very different in our usage, but both of us love it. FINALLY, a headset that's all it's cracked up to be and MORE and at an exceptional price. It's a keeper.
As a purchase, this was a great value; as for it's performance it is average at best. I say this because of the following items: 1. There were no instructions on how to pair the headset. Now I can let that go since it was an OEM purchase, but I did expect to find some at LG's website. No dice there. I solved it by trial and error. 2. The unit doesn't keep a charge very well. One hour talk time, if I'm lucky. 3. Every time I turn on the unit, it pairs with the phone and then disconnects itself. I then have to restart the headset to maintain the connection. I have 2 other headsets that connect as expected. Annoying at best.
Great for the price12/22/2010
The only one who has complained about the my voice quality is on a different network. Overall I have been pleased. Wish the battery life was longer. I don't know how accurate the specs are.
Sounds great, but uncomfortable.11/25/2010
The sound on this bluetooth is great, both for the user and person called. But, it does not hook over the ear, but clips onto the lobe. Can pinch after awhile, but also tends to slip if not readjusted often while talking. Good for the price, but would get one that is more comfortable.
Excellent bluetooth headset10/11/2010
There's not much to say about the function of this unit - it does all the cool things you expect a sophisticated bluetooth headset to do but adds excellent sound transmission and reception - much better than my previous LG headset. My only complaint is a niggle - the shape of the rubber earpiece is a little weird and doesn't easily fit in my ear. Takes a little bit of getting used to.
Product works as advertised.
This is a great product. This bluetooth offers exceptional call quality. Some people said that they could hear me better after using this bluetooth headset!! I don't talk a lot but for the amount of time I have used it so far, it's been really comfortable and reliable. Works right out of the box. I used this for Black Jack 2 phone.
The speaker piece is really loud (even at lowest volume on my cellphone) and so I find it is easy to hear even in highway traffic. Occasionally a few people on the other side have said they couldn't hear me very well especially when talking in open areas. But when in car, no one complains, they say they don't even know I am using bluetooth. So overall, I find it pretty good and so I don't understand why there is any need to go for anything that costs more than this. Battery lasts a week for my amount of talking.
Crystal Clear Voice -2/12/2010
This LG bluetooth headset has the best voice quality of any headset we have tried, and, believe me, we have tried many (around 25). The person you are talking to won't even know you're on a headset. The sleek design, combined with the lightweight ear loop, is very comfortable to wear.
Great product for a great price.1/2/2010
I bought this for my LG Rumor2 and it works right out of the box. Now that our state is looking at tougher Cell phone/driving laws, this product will be of a great help and you can't beat the price! It comes with it's own charger.
