        Comments about Etymotic Research etyBLU2 Headset for Bluetooth Wireless Devices:

        It pains me to imagine how many different Bluetooth devices I've used, lost or simply wasted money purchasing over the years. This was recommended by a professional audio engineer and I'll never go back to cheap Bluetooth devices again. Background noise is nearly nil. I have great compliments from people I speak with about how good the fidelity is. I also can hear beautifully through the earpiece. It's comfortable to wear and due to the boom mic, is also very adjustable. Definitely a five-star product and worth every penny.

          Comments about Etymotic Research etyBLU2 Headset for Bluetooth Wireless Devices:

          I use this headset with my iPhone for work calls - sometimes several hours in a day. It is incredibly clear on both ends. Clear enough that most people don't realize I'm using a headset.

          The fit can take a bit of getting used to. But once you figure it out, it's quite comfortable. As other reviewers have mentioned, the button for answer calls is difficult to use while wearing the headset. That's a tradeoff worth making for the clear audio though.

          Comments about Etymotic Research etyBLU2 Headset for Bluetooth Wireless Devices:

          I have owned several bluetooth headsets over the years. This one is among the best. The sound quality is excellent. Be prepared to spend some time finding which of the provided ear tips is right for you. This device is larger than most. When you wear it you'll look like you work in a call center. I'm a radio operator and I'm used to wearing much larger headsets so I wasn't bothered. The biggest negative is the on/off/answer button. Its flush with the body and takes practice to find with your finger. Cool looking but hard to use. It needs some pressure to operate and some practice. The other drawback is that the ear tips are so good at blocking ambient noise that you are deaf in one ear. All that said, its a very good headset. If you main reason for using a headset is serious communication, buy this one. If you want something thats cute or unobtrusive get some thing else.

          Comments about Etymotic Research etyBLU2 Headset for Bluetooth Wireless Devices:

          The headset has fantastic audio quality for both parties and works great in noisy environments. The tradeoff for these qualities is ungainly appearance and a little discomfort.

          I have used numerous headsets and they all provide mediocre audio to the party on the other end of the call. The etyblu is the only unit that I've encountered where no one has complained about background noise or clarity. In fact, no one has discerned that I'm using a headset with the etyblu.

          The in ear design takes some getting used to and the controls are inconvenient and poorly executed. The primary function button requires so much force that I have to hold on to the unit to press the button. A capacitance touch switch would have been a much better choice. Volume resets to a preset level every time the unit is turned off which requires adjusting it every time the unit is turned on: A needless pain in the butt.

          All things considered, the etyblu is the best headset I've ever tried, but with a few minor improvements it could be even better.

            Comments about Etymotic Research etyBLU2 Headset for Bluetooth Wireless Devices:

            Positive: I use this, as a physician, while moving from one exam room to another while on call; I can leave the cell phone plugged into my desk computer up to at least 45 feet away. The noise cancellation is wonderful for noisy surroundings -- callers aren't bothered by conflicting noise. The foam wind protectors work well -- I was able to receive a call and have a conversation while riding bicycle at 20 mph into a 25 mph wind. Negative: all the earpieces hurt my ear canal after awhile -- about 3 hours for the moldable foam -- but with quick recovery. I will get a custom ear plug.Negative: the pressable power/signal switch cover is attached with what looks to be 2 tiny pieces of double-stick tape, and fell off within a week. Back to the mfr for replacement... If it were post-warranty, I'd just use 2 drops of epoxy.

              This is my second BLU2. The first went into the laundry, through spin cycle, then the dryer. Other than that abuse it was durable & the folks on the other side of the conversation never knew I was using it...unlike other light head-sets I've tried. Ron
