    This tiny headset exemplifies what a consumer piece of utility electronics should be. The device is unobtrusive, light and small. Its operation is uneventful, drama free and as reliable as an ax. I looked through the fold-out manual to figure out what to hold down and for how long to connect multiple phones - this is probably a must for a device that has one receiver control, volume button and a power button - and after two minutes had two phones connected and ready to go. After that all you have to do is turn it on to be instantly greeted by a voice prompt "Power On. Battery High. Phone one, connected. Phone two, connected." That's it.
    The M50 works perfectly for me with either phone in any of my pockets. When I forgot them in my coat in my office and walked away, the headset disconnected only after I was a good 50 feet away down the hallway. It re-connected when I was outside the building in the parking lot, 50 feet away from my office, through a cinder block wall. It works fine with phones being in the car and me walking around it filling up or cleaning the windshield. Inside the house it reaches easily anywhere in the same room with phones on the table.
    Battery life: I charged it once and after a week of use (during the day) mine still says "Battery high". I recharged the phone 5 times by now. This is good in my books. Sound is very clear and I have not heard any distortion or crackling.
    I bought two, my wife has the second. She loves hers and uses it all the time. She especially likes how light it is and comfortable in her small ear. We are not gadget people and I had some doubts about these but they have proven to be worth every penny I paid for them, twice over.
    Highly recommended.

    This earpiece works far better than the Motorola earpiece I'm replacing. However it has a built in ear hook that cannot be swapped out and only comes with one ear mold. If it fits, it's great... it doesn't fit my girlfriend so we're going to have to buy a different earpiece for her altogether... not a great solution.

          Comments about Plantronics M50 Bluetooth Headset:

          I use this headset for work related calls while in the office, allowing me to be hands free, and personal calls at home and while driving. Some notable features and advantages over other headsets:- Easy to place on/in ear with one hand- Grooved ear-bud that fits perfectly (not just a round disk that falls out of your ear)- Over the ear design...doesn't slip- Clear sound- Person on the other end of the call hears minimal wind noise and minimal background noise (I've used this while walking in a crowded airport and it works just fine)- Once touch to accept a call or make a voice-activiated call- Good battery life- Long range- Very lightweight with great fit (doesn't slip while walking/moving)(I haven't used this yet for music would expect it to work just fine)

            Comments about Plantronics M50 Bluetooth Headset:

            This headset is easy to use and does it's job well.Once the headset is paired, the rest is easy and the pairing is easy as well. You get a call and the headset isn't on - put it on your ear and turn it on and you can answer by the fourth ring. It lets you know the battery's status when you turn it on, battery life is typically all day and longer and the sound quality while talking or listening to Pandora or XM radio is excellent. Ideally, the headset must be in the line of sight of the phone or it cuts out that's why the 4 stars. The price is right and it charges quickly.It has many more pluses than minuses.

            Comments about Plantronics M50 Bluetooth Headset:

            Great Bluetooth. The sound quality is awesome and its lightweight. The earpiece is comfortable. The only drawback is the plastic earloop. If it breaks your screwed. No way to replace it. The bluetooth did not come with an extra loop. May be able to call Plantronics for a replacement, pull the pin and fix it. Get the toolbox ready. The only reason it didnt get 5 stars is the plastic earloop issue.

                This is my second M50 since I like it so much. When accidently threw the old one in the washer, I was forced to buy another one. I bought another brand but the volume was too low no matter what I dit to it. I bought this one and problem solved.

                  I love this bluetooth and was grateful to find it again. It has a comfortable rubber ear piece that fits nicely into your ear and the clear plastic piece that fits over the top of your ear is the perfect size. Most models are way too big and flop around but this one is perfect. The clear plastic piece also is reversible which makes it perfect for everyone.

                          This unit was cheaper than most bluetooth headsets and works great! Had a more expensive one previously that kept dropping calls and had crackly sound.

                          It is not as far a range as other units but a fair tradeoff for the great price!

                            Comments about Plantronics M50 Bluetooth Headset:

                            This tiny headset exemplifies what a consumer piece of utility electronics should be. The device is unobtrusive, light and small. Its operation is uneventful, drama free and as reliable as an ax. I looked through the fold-out manual to figure out what to hold down and for how long to connect multiple phones - this is probably a must for a device that has one receiver control, volume button and a power button - and after two minutes had two phones connected and ready to go. After that all you have to do is turn it on to be instantly greeted by a voice prompt "Power On. Battery High. Phone one, connected. Phone two, connected." That's it.
                            The M50 works perfectly for me with either phone in any of my pockets. When I forgot them in my coat in my office and walked away, the headset disconnected only after I was a good 50 feet away down the hallway. It re-connected when I was outside the building in the parking lot, 50 feet away from my office, through a cinder block wall. It works fine with phones being in the car and me walking around it filling up or cleaning the windshield. Inside the house it reaches easily anywhere in the same room with phones on the table.
                            Battery life: I charged it once and after a week of use (during the day) mine still says "Battery high". I recharged the phone 5 times by now. This is good in my books. Sound is very clear and I have not heard any distortion or crackling.
                            I bought two, my wife has the second. She loves hers and uses it all the time. She especially likes how light it is and comfortable in her small ear. We are not gadget people and I had some doubts about these but they have proven to be worth every penny I paid for them, twice over.
                            Highly recommended.

                            I wear the M50 everyday, all day long. From 530A to 1100P every single day. It is connected to both my work and personal phones (Blackberry, Droid 4). I do wish it allowed for differing ringtones, so I could tell which phone is ringing as I keep both my phones on silent. This one I bought to replace my last M50, which stopped working one day after almost two years of use.I work in the building maintenance field, so I encounter a variety of environments. The incoming sound is great in all environments I have encountered, the outgoing is good enough that my 87 year old Dad can hear me, on the phone, while I'm driving. It's comfortable and feels secure. My only complaints would be the lack of differing ringtones to differentiate phones and I wish it had a little more range away from my phones(the existing range is easily the 30 or so feet claimed, but I tend to set my phone down sometimes and wander.)

                            Bought this to replace a Voyager Pro+ which I couldn't keep on my ear. The M50 is very light and comfortably stays put. The sound is very clear and my contacts say it is quieter(less wind noise)than the Voyager. Hook up with my Note3 was automatic when I searched for the M50. Battery life is very good. At this price I bought two more before they stop making this model. It's like the original models with the rubber tab that extends into the ear for a secure grip.

                                I use it daily in the office and in the car and after about 2 weeks of use can say that it is working great. Sound is crisp and clear. The headset is light and comfortable and the charge lasts a long time. In the office, I can walk about 20ft away from the phone before I start hearing some static - not bad considering all the electronic equipment nearby. Throw in the low price and this is definite winner!
