The Good The Kyocera Wireless Stereo Bluetooth Headset with Pendant Controller is an easy-to-use headset with tactile controls and great sound quality.

The Bad The Kyocera Wireless Stereo Bluetooth Headset with Pendant Controller feels a bit awkward when worn, and the lanyard length cannot be altered. We also needed to raise the pendant to our lips for our voices to be heard.

The Bottom Line The Kyocera Wireless Stereo Bluetooth Headset with Pendant Controller has admirable sound quality and tactile controls, but a few design flaws make it far from perfect.

Kyocera may be better known as a maker of hip cell phones for Virgin Mobile such as the Marbl and the Cyclops, but it has also churned out a number of Bluetooth accessories in the past. Its latest is the Kyocera Wireless Stereo Bluetooth Headset with Pendant Controller, which is made to be used with a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone that has a built-in music player. Though it has a rather clunky around-the-neck style, it has excellent sound quality and easy-to-use controls. It's currently available for $41.99 from Kyocera Wireless. To find more accessories like this, plus tips on how to use them, please check out our cell phone accessories help page.

This Kyocera Stereo Bluetooth Headset consists of two parts: a slim and compact pendant, which contains the main hub of controls, and a lanyard with the two earpieces attached to it via two short wires. You are meant to wear the lanyard around your neck with the pendant hanging down against your chest. This arrangement felt a bit awkward after a while, as the pendant kept swinging back and forth if we moved around a lot, and this is even after we clipped the pendant onto our shirt. That said, it works just fine if you don't wear it for any rigorous activity such as running or jogging.
