I’ve always had issues with over-the-head or over-the-neck wireless headphones, because somehow they don’t fit well on my head or don’t fit well on the ear while need me to constantantly adjust them correctly. Having said that, I’ve never liked Nokia’s Bluetooth headsets, which had long wires – so, this seems more ideal choice for people like me.
It offers flexibility of wired headphones, effectively fit like over-the-head, earphones & still offer the convenience from a wireless connection. I would have liked this earphone to provide a minimum of 2 days of battery power for listening to music, at least 8 hours of talking time. However, I’m liking the standby time, which is about 6 days.
