This unit works very well and has never let me down. I talk on it for hours and have had no sign of battery failure. I charge it nightly and it lasts me all day long. It can be a little tight but I have a big head so that's not an issue for most people. Buttons are easy to feel without having to look at the unit as some in-ear bluetooth devices are. Also, it's not as large as the pictures show. The mic comes in front of the mouth but is small and is just to the side so that it doesn't block your whole face. Works perfect even at a whisper and in all environments. I haven't had anyone say they can't hear me. This is the best bluetooth unit I've had. The boom mic and over-the-head fit actually lets people know you are on the phone so they will leave you alone unlike the in-ear units where people think you are taling to them because you have to yell so that the other person can hear you. This BlueParrot is great for privacy because you can talk low and not bother anyone around you since the boom mic is closer to the face. I am able to have the TV or radio on low volume and hold a conversation and the other person only hears me talking, not the outside noise. The side where the controls are is kind of large compared to in-ear units but that makes it easier to find and to see and use and holds a bigger battery for better talk times. I wear it for a few hours per day and it has performed perfectly. I am very picky about my electronic devices and this is a very good unit. I was using wired headsets but they snag and tear and only work with certain phones. This unit works will all bluetooth devices as far as I have found. I wish there were a way to use dual phones with this unit but I don't think any bluetooth devices can do that so it's not a "con" for this device. I have paired it with both of my phones but you just have to switch the phones' settings themselves which is fine but it would be handy to have a button or a "dual pairing" so that no matter which phone rings you could just answer with the push of a button but I don't think bluetooth doest that yet and it's wishful thinking on my part. Highly recommended for active users in busy or quiet environments. I have used it while serving customers, mechanical work, hot and sweaty areas, etc. Boom mic is fully adjustable and stays in its place unlike some headsets that only move up and down.
