Good Stereo Headset but NO Voice Commands – X10 Bluetooth 2.1+EDR A2DP Handsfree Stereo Headset - Black (5-Hour Talk/140-Hour Standby) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Headset has good build quality
- Packaging is nice enough for gifting
- There are 3 buttons (Vol+, Vol- and PWR/Function)
- It is loud and has great sound quality for both the standard ear piece and the extended stereo adapter.
- Fairly comfortable with the included over ear loop.
Cons:
- The single button for answering/denying etc can be a little cumbersome to get used too.
- The instructions specify that pressing the answer/Function button for 3 seconds will activate Voice Commands on supported phones. Unfortunately when paired with an iPhone 3Gs pressing the button for 3 seconds turns the headset off. NO Voice Commands are routed through the headset either when manually activated from the phone.
- All phone sounds are routed through the headset as though you were wearing a standard pair of headphone.
Other:
Bottomline:
This is great BT stereo headset for being out and about but if you rely on Voice Commands while driving or other activities then I would not recommend this (at least for anyone with an iPhone)
