Top Customer Reviews
THE GOOD: They are lightweight, comfortable and sleek-looking. I use them with my iPhone 4S and the headset/microphone work great, including giving commands to Siri (the virtual personal assistant). The range is impressive with my iPhone as I can walk into a completely different room and they still work perfectly!
THE BAD: Musicians may find the sound quality a bit lacking, e.g. base isn't resounding enough, highs aren't crisp enough, etc. Honestly though they're great quality and I'm perfectly satisfied, so if you're not hypersensitive to this sort of thing you'll be fine.
THE UGLY: They have no option to be plugged in, so if the battery dies you have to wait until they're charged before using them again. On a related note, the battery lasts for only a few hours (around 4 hours tops I'd say) and then you have to charge them, limiting their usefulness.
All-in-all, since I got these headphones at the discounted $50 price (yay Amazon!) rather than the $140 price, I'm a very happy customer. However, I'm not sure I would pay the full price for these, though I suppose it depends what the competition looks like.
Sound quality is pretty good - they're not as good as wired earbuds, but it's certainly good enough.
I find these to be very comfortable, and they don't fall out of my ear. I used the shirt-collar-connector once or twice but haven't used them since.
I must say, there's no way I would pay $150 for them, but on Black Friday, they were on sale for $40 which is an absolute steal.
Overall I highly recommend the HBH-IS800 Bluetooth headset as it offers a great and affordable method of delivering wireless audio without having to resort into spending hundreds of dollars. The only major thing that might be a issue for some is the battery life.

love these, light powerful, 2.5 hr run time. They just don't hold a charge for more than a day on standby.Published 22 months ago by Neal Armstrong
The sound is good, with not a lot of bass. Voice calls are clear, and the people on the other side say I sound as if I'm speaking right into the phone's microphone. Read morePublished on Dec 15 2012 by Carlos
The sound is as expected from the price. However they have a tendancy to fall out of your ear. Very light and good sound quality from the mic.Published on Dec 11 2012 by Calgary88
This product is very comfortable to use. It is not big at all, as it only has two ear-buds and a small microphone block. Read morePublished on Nov. 6 2012 by Joel
Kept falling out or felt. If they were about to fall out. Would be nice with a hook around the ear.Published on Nov. 2 2012 by TM Quinn
