Though Samsung has been churning out affordable headsets lately, most of them have pretty run-of-the-mill features and so-so performance levels. The WEP 700, however, promises to be one of the few with actual noise and echo cancellation abilities as well as automatic volume control. It also has a sleek design that doesn't compromise on comfort and ease of use. The WEP 700 is not too expensive at only $89.99 retail.

The Samsung WEP 700 measures 1.81 inches long by 0.74 inch wide by 0.42 inch deep, which makes it a little bigger than most Samsung headsets, but not by much. The WEP 700 is smooth all around, with both the left and right sides tapering toward the mic to form a soft curve. The square multifunction button sits right smack dab on the front, while the volume keys sit on the left and right side. Though we found the multifunction button easy enough to press, we thought the two volume buttons to be a bit too tiny for our liking. Underneath the multifunction button is a small LED indicator light.
