Bluetooth® Wireless Stereo Headset - Black
Why put up with an uncomfortable ear-bud style bluetooth headset? Get stereo sound and ultimate comfort from this A2DP Bluetooth® Headset from Monoprice!
This bluetooth headset features high-quality stereo sound for use as an A2DP audio headset. The softly padded earpieces are held in place with a "behind the neck" style band, which is very flexible, yet holds in place without pinching your head or ears. A microphone hole in the back of the right earpiece picks up your voice, allowing you to use this as a hands-free device, as well as a stereo headset, making it perfect for video gaming with PCs or consoles, such as the PlayStation 3 or for making phone calls.
The headset conforms to the Bluetooth 2.1 standard, which allows pairing without the use of passkeys or other codes. The power on/off button is on the bottom of the right earpiece, while the volume + and - buttons are on the top edge. The left earpiece features music player controls: a play/stop button on the bottom of the earpiece and forward/backward buttons on the top edge.
The headeset holds a generous charge, allowing 300 hours of standby time and up to 15 hours of "talk" time. The battery can be fully recharged in about 3 hours. The bluetooth range is rated at 10 meters (about 30 feet), but it can often maintain a quality connection to as much as twice that distance, through several walls. A 37" charging cable, with a proprietary connector on the headset and a USB A male connector on the other end, is included, allowing the battery to be charged from any USB power source.
This headset complies with RoHS standards.

Pros: Makes a great paperweight
Cons: After just over two months the proprietary charger can no longer charge these headphones. Without any option for a replacement these are now useless.
I used to be a really big fan of monoprice. Suggesting it to all my friends. Whenever I needed headphones or cables or little gadgets it was always my go-to place. I'm really disappointed.

Thank you for your review on PID 8582. I am truly sorry that the charging cable has recently failed. If you would like, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a parts replacement as we cover this headset with a one year warranty. Obtaining the replacement would be of no additional cost to you. Please let me know if you would like to proceed and I hope this helps!

Pros: Good price for what you get.
Cons: The sound of this one is not as good as my last one. This has a more muffled sound to it. The high tones are just not there.
The stays that hold the cables on will occasionally come loose.
Overall I will have to say that this is not as good as the one I bought just like it 2 years ago. But it works for listening to podcasts. Music not so much.

Easy to pair and use
Cons: High pitch whine
Lost non-replaceable USB cord
Competed for space with my eyeglasses
The whine only bothered me in quiet areas. Since I'm unable to find my charging cord they are going into the junk drawer.
Good price, marginal quality

Pros: Lightweight and decent quality sound for price.
Cons: Some of the pieces easily fall off and proprietary charging plug
There are some soft plastic inserts in the curves that fall out and have disappeared. Additionally it uses some sort of proprietary cable for charging. The original charging cable has been misplaced and I'm unable to find a replacement cable. Support could not help me identify a replacement cable or plug type to track one down. As a result it isn't very useful to me any longer. Disappointing, as they were fairly useful for the day I could use them prior to the battery discharging.

My apologies for the inconvenient experience you have had thus far with PID 8582. Regarding the charging cable, we unfortunately do not offer it separately at this time and would be unable to send out a replacement if it is lost. In reference to the plastic inserts, are you able to send me pictures of the issue so we can look into this matter further? Thank you!

Pros: Bought as a gift for my wife because she jogs and lays out by the pool. She can play all of hits on the pc and pick up the Bluetooth out by the pool with no static and the jogging is even better. Great and I recommend it.
