Excellent Performance But Heed Advice

by Larry on 9/5/2010

Noise cancelling works well and MP3 built-in player is great. Can also use on airplane take-offs w/electronics off and then switch electronics on when allowed. Great price compared to top end headphones. Otto fits over entire ear and folds flat into case -addl great features. Having owned two Ottos, I have learned of two weaknesses and if you avoid them, then you will love this headset. 1) Never adjust the headset by pulling on the earpiece - It may snap off from the base. Instead, adjust the headset by always pulling the adjustable band out from the top support band. 2) I discovered on both headsets bought 3 years apart that they both had same defect - Changing out the supplied AAA batteries with another brand, the battery case plastic edges up near the positive side terminal may be too thick by a infinitesimal amount preventing AAAs that have a slightly smaller positive nub from contacting the positive terminal. The fix for me was to shave down the plastic battery box edges near the positive terminal with a Dremel (and just a small amount) and then all AAAs make contact okay. I sent an EMail alerting OTTO of this issue and they responded that they had discovered this earlier and were implementing a fix to their headsets. So...If you buy a headset, it may already have the fix implemented. It is a minor nit but explains why replacement batteries may not make contact inside the battery box. You know you have this issue if the foreign AAA batteries supplied work in the headset but a replacement set of American Brand AAAs do not. But after the fix and adjusting the headset to your head by not pulling on the earpiece, this ia an excellent headset w/built-in MP3 player !! I bought the second one because I could not find anything else that matches the features of this headset in it's price range !!
