Got them.

The good:

* pair instantly
* sound quality is good
* strong design
* mini usb charger

The bad:

* you look like a prong
* breaks up like a mother****er unless it's very close

Good effort but a2dp is capable for blasting music for meters, shoudn't break up like this

:( You got them before me and I posted the link

Have you tried pairing them with your Mac to see if its the phone link or the phones?

I will let you know what mine are like when I get them

Google says yes in Snow Leopard to some degree http://discussions.apple.com/thread....readID=2180247

And 10.5.7 here http://discussions.apple.com/thread....53429&#9753429

Try this...

Just wanted to add to this in case anyone is having the same problem as me – I had read to only use the “headphones” feature, but it didn’t make any difference, the audio quality was still terrible.
Then I went back and completely removed the headphones from the bluetooth devices list. Then when I started to add a new bluetooth device, I selected “Any Device” instead of “Headset” as the type. This time, when it found them, I still had to select only the headphones feature, but now when they were added the quality is perfect. I’m listening to Albinoni’s Adagio with no crackles, just crisp audio!!

I'll report back when I get mine

You have to make a ringtone from the song. It seems complicated at first but actually it's really easy

Indeed I do. A very sturdy plastic case plus a screen protector.

I expect you refuse to wear a condom, don't you?

Got mine today.

Agree with all the above except mine work fine up to about 4 meters which is absolutely no problem at all in my book. Really pleased with them for 12.99. They also pair perfectly with my Macbook and my iPhone, top banana.

They pair best with the Macbook, greater distance, very good quality sound too.

Ridcully 01-10-2009 09:06 PM

All the controls work on the Macbook, volume up and down, skip forward and back, pause/play etc. Only pause/play and volume work with the iPhone. They have a built in mic too but haven't tried it yet for VOIP on the Macbook or for a call on the iPhone.

Ridcully 01-10-2009 09:09 PM

Will try with the PS3 later, these could well turn out to be the best bargain I have bought for a long time :D

Lizzy 01-10-2009 09:12 PM

OK bint question alert:

I will be getting a new sim and sure as eggs is eggs this means that I won't have my phone numbers on my new phone. Can I put them all into my outlook contacts and then sync my iphone with outlook? (not that I have a scooby how to do that) or is best to just write them all down and then input them into the jesus.

Personally I sync all my contacts with Google and keep them in the cloud, whether I go they are retrievable from. You should be able to sync them from your current sim and then copy them back to your new one no problem.

Lizzy 01-10-2009 09:18 PM

Huh?

And now in English please.

My current sim won't fit into my jesus hence why they are sending a new one so where would I sync my old sim to?

And you keep your contacts in a cloud? WTF? The same cloud that God sits on?

Thanks! I'd always wondered how to do this - but never enough to actually look into it. Works a treat!
