I’ve been using Jaybird JF3 Stereo Bluetooth Headset for almost exactly a year now and they have been great. Great for the gym and working out but not for everyday practical use. It’s 2012 now and there still isn’t that wide of a selection of stereo bluetooth headsets that are decent. A coworker of mine had a unique, yet very cool looking headset which was the LG Tone HBS 700 and he swears by the. I found a pair on Frys.com for $48.99 and have been very satisfied with them so far!
After charging the headset and pairing with my Samsung Galaxy S3, I was ready to rock with these on. To wear the HBS-700, all you have to do is place the neckband around your neck and place the earpieces into your ear. The neckband itself is very light and comfortable and you won’t even notice that it’s there. The way the headset is designed, you don’t really have to worry about them falling off when your work out or even go running. The earpieces fit comfortable into the ear and I haven’t had any discomfort and they didn’t pop out after an hour workout on the treadmill.
Sound quality is surprisingly really good. They aren’t Monster Beats but they definitely do sound better than the white headphones that come with the iPhone! Sound was very clear, nice treble, decent bass and even the call quality was good. I could hear the other caller loud and clear and they could hear me without any issues. It does cancel out some of the noise but in a loud gym, you really need to have the volume up high to drown it out.
You can pair the headset to two devices, but you can’t have both the phone and music features going at the same time on both the devices. So basically when you pair your phone and your computer, you’ll be able to answer and make calls with this, but you can’t play any music on your phone and have to have that stream from your computer or other audio source.
Overall, these are very stylish, comfortable, and produce really good sound quality. I will totally recommend this to people in search of a stereo bluetooth headset!
