I have had one of these now for 3 months and I do not regret buying it at all, it has been an excellent buy and complements my Nokia N97 nicely.

Sound Quality

The sound quality is fantastic, I have never experienced such good sound for a bluetooth headset, it will easily match any wired headset. Just be careful because some devices may only support mono not stereo. The microphone is very good and picks voice up well in a quite place, but would struggle in a train station for example.
Battery Life

I am not really sure how long the battery is because it does vary wildly depending on volume and distance from the phone, I have found that the battery life runs about 8-9 hours, less than the stated 11, but still good.

Range

The range is about 7-10 meters in line of sight and less through walls but the quality remains as you move away from the handset only becoming jumpy at the very end of the range.
Connectivity

The headset supports bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, while this works very well with my N97 and iPod Touch other devices have not worked as successfully with the headset. My Nokia N800 only supports bluetooth 1.2 and will only broadcast in mono as a result. My Windows 7 PC had a terrible time, it took ages to connect and when it did it was jumpy and laggy and about 20 seconds ahead of what I was hearing. I put this down to the OS more that the headset though. Very easy to connect, hold down a button and pair to a device. There are buttons on the side as well but I can't get these to do anything so I can't comment.

Durability

Although plastic, it seems very strong to me, they are quite flexible and would withstand being dropped.
Comfort

Very comfy unless you had a very small head, and then it would fall off. It is heavy and I feel that after a while it does become noticeable. Also I would recommend not wearing them in public, unless you want people to think you are mad, they are quite big and sick out a fair bit from the ears. Also they have a flashing blue light that is very annoying and flashes very bright every few seconds.

Overall this is an excellent bluetooth headset, prices vary so shop around. They are ideal for car or train journeys but I would recommend not wearing them on the street. They also come on two colours: silver like the picture, or red and black (these are mine and look really good).
