Customer Reviews of Plantronics M50 Bluetooth Headset - Gray
Thanks for great product.
I looked around and read all sorts of reviews on a variety of different Bluetooth headsets. Sure am glad that I settled on this one, since it is small, light, great sound quality, easy to use, paired quickly with my Motorola Android phone, and was a SUPER value.
Background noise, frequent dropped connections4/30/2012
I find that this headset has a lot of background noise, and VERY frequently drops its connection to my cell phone. My prior Plantronics headset (different model) did not have either issue.
Best BT on the market for the price4/16/2012
With 11 hours talk time, the cost, and the fact that everything in the description of this BT being true (no hype) this is the best BT I own. Buy one and you will not be disappointed. I purchased 2 the other for my daughter who also loves this unit.
Great bluetooth headset4/13/2012
I bought M50 to replace my old Plantronics headset. M50 is light-weighted, fit to ear comfortably, my wife can hear me clearly when I walk and talk in NYC Time Square. Love it. Worth the money!
I found this plantronics bluetooth to be excellent. Due to having a galaxy s android phone, it's not always easy to decipher reviews since they were potentially tested on iPhones or other cell phones. With this particularly headset, the people that I spoke with said that the voice quality as well as wind noise reduction were very good. Working with friends and testing with my wife, it generally had no issues and I was able to get a high distance from the phone as well 15-20 ft. without issues. Having said that, the conditions that I was testing in were sometimes quiet (car, etc.) and other times very windy out in hilly areas of Texas. Overall, the only product "improvements" would really be on the side of buttons and just the typicals of a small headset. It's brilliantly designed to "save space", but you have to study to know where to press, how long, etc. And, as with any smaller headset, it's not always "easy" to operate the functionality due to the reduced button and click sizes while wearing it on your ear. The only headset (thus far), I found to be better is (of course), the larger plantronics m1100. This higher-end model has even better noise cancellation, voice quality (in loud/windy environments), a2dp to play audio files through the bluetooth headset, etc.. The advantage of this headset is the battery life will last longer. Both this model and the m1100 provided excellent fit and comfort on the head/ear for me.
I have been using this Plantronics m100 for a week now and it is the best bluetooth for the iPhone 4. This headset even generates an icon on the iPhone that shows the remaining charge on the headset as well as giving a voice prompt announcing remaining talk time when turning on the headset. I had tried a Jawbone Icon previous to this, but had to return it as some people could not hear me due to Jawbone not picking up my voice. The jawbone seemed to have trouble with the sensor detecting that I was speaking, unless I held the bottom of the Jawbone against my face. Previously, I had another Plantronics (925) headset that worked fine with my iPhone 3G and 3GS, but horribly with my iPhone4. Very short range when it worked at all with iPhone 4 and terrible voice quality. At times I could hear the callers but they could not hear me. At other times it would even disconnect when iPnone 4 was in my pocket and earpiece was on the opposite ear! Finally, after I had it a few years (paired with the iPhone 3G and 3GS), it died and would not recharge anymore (ThankYou!). It seems that some bluetooth headsets work better with certain cellular phones than others. The m100 seems made specifically for iPhone 4 and is giving me fantastic range, exceptionally long range if in my line of sight, and excellent sound quality. Pairing is the easiest yet and it seems to stay connected unless I get out of range, when it will warn me that it is disconnecting. It easily and automatically reconnects when back in range with a voice announcement. And....it is even comfortable and exttemely light, and can be worn with an ear hook (included) or just fitted in the ear canal with one of the three included ear gels. I even ordered a second unit for backup!
Best Earpiece on the market!4/7/2012
I have tried several earpieces and the most comfortable is the Plantronics design for the rubber insert. You will not be disappointed. The sound quality is great with this product and the price is very resonable from this website.... Thank goodness because my dog continues to chew them up!!! This was my 7th earpiece and the 3rd one of this model... They must taste good too!!!
