Almost a perfect headsetApr 06, 2007
By Vladimir Andreyev
"\/ L /\ D"
One of the main advantages of Nokia BH-700 is that the earpiece goes in the ear and not just hangs over it. The headset is very comfortable and can be used without the optional hook; it won't fall out unless you run or jump up and down. It is very small and light. The sound quality is very good. Using the buttons on the headset you can answer, reject, and end calls, adjust volume, mute the microphone, redial the last number, transfer the call between the headset and the handset, and use voice commands. The small LED uses different colors to indicate device status. If you have a newer Nokia phone, you can use its charger with this headset. The battery lasts for days. The headset supports Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, so if your phone also has this capability, you can expect even better talk and standby times.
I've found only two minor issues with this headset, which, however, don't detract any stars from its rating. First, the headset does not beep if the battery gets low during a call; it simply turns off without a warning when it is completely discharged. Second, no buttons need to be pressed on the headset in order to pair it, which means that anyone in the 30' range can pair their devices to your headset, disconnect it from your own phone, and delete your pairing. I doubt anyone will actually experience this, but I think it is a security flaw. Otherwise, this is really one of the best headsets on the market.

Good stuffMar 09, 2007
By L. Ilardi
I had the motorola H700 before this and it broke in about six months. This Nokia has a dramatically improved range without breaking up, so I can leave it in my living room and walk around without carrying my cell, or better yet use skype on my couch. The in ear design helps you hear because it cuts the outside noise, however the optional loop is necessary to keep it from slipping out. The lanyard lets you wear it around your neck for easy access. I like the simple styling even though it looks like a thumb drive is grabbing on to your ear for dear life. Overall a great design.

Great sound performance, Poor FitJun 14, 2007
By D. M. Trader
I received this headset today, and I am very disappointed. The ear piece is too big, and does not fit in my ear at all. When I do manage to shove/wiggle it around to get it to stay in, it's uncomfortable, and my ear hurts well after taking it out. Apparently this headset was sized for men (I am an average sized woman). The included earloop sucks, and doesn't do much to help with fit either since you cannot "mold" the loop to a custom fit. It's just a rigid plastic hook.
On the plus side, the styling of the headset is great. Lightweight, sleek, the controls are easy to use, and there is no obnoxious blinking blue light at the side of your head. The neck lanyard is a nice touch too. I did make a few calls using the unit, and reception was extremely clear.

Really pleased with this productJul 03, 2007
Really pleased with this product - after reading ratings and reviews of all the brands, I ended up with the Nokia, same make as my phone, a little more expensive, but I wanted to make sure that it would pair really well.
It is half the weight of most of the bluetooth products and the sound quality is amazing. People on the other end can hear me just fine too. Most of the time I forget I'm wearing it. I drive a lot on my job and live in a state where hands free operation behind the wheel is mandatory. I figured just one traffic ticket fine would pay for it.
One thing could be improved - the on/off switch isn't as easy to operate as it could be, but at least you can't switch it off by accident this way.

DissapointedOct 10, 2007
By Ana Ichim
The ear piece is impossible for me to fit into the ear. It's way to big and it hangs outside. I cannot rely on the hook to fix it on my ear. It's way to loose and practically decorative. I think that it's mostly designed for men.
