I bought this headset about a year ago. I have only ran into one problem but that was just me forgetting to turn on the headset I use this for gaming and for recording videos and such. I LOVE the audio control panel. It's very useful when you're playing a game and someone mic spams . If you just use headsets for skyping and such then this is the headset for you! Definitely worth the money.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was able to use my hearing aids with this headset. The Bluetooth end of it could be a little bit better - the sound quality with my phone wasn't exactly ideal - but for audio and video conferencing, it does the job brilliantly. And the battery life on this headset is far better than even my phone. lol
I've had this headset for almost 2 years now, and it still has a good battery life. They are fairly durable; I've kept mine in my backpack that I bring to and from work on a daily basis and the device continues to work without issue.
The range is pretty good, but other devices (like microwaves) will interfere if you get too close. I primarily use them for headphones, but every time I've used them for the mic, they've performed well.
I would say that it would be nicer to have kept the design of the older wireless headset where you could push the center of the volume control to mute instead of the small button on the headset. I also liked the old headset's indicator light for the mute, but even without these, it's a great headset.
I was looking for a headset for a while for my PS3 and then I found these. I'm not sure why Sony didn't come out with these earlier, they are awesome. I bought them to play first person shooters with, as soon as I turned on the 7.1 effect, I could hear everything. Took me a couple of matches to get used to them, and at first I was wondering why I even bought them. But after a few games I was getting a 3 to 1 [...] ratio consistently for about 3 hours. I could hear if someone was around me most of the time, there are some that use the silent footsteps that I couldnt' hear. I could also hear other sounds I didn't even know existed within the game.
