The Good The Samsung WEP460 is a simple and lightweight headset that's affordable. It also has very good battery life.

The Bad The Samsung WEP460 has mediocre and erratic call quality. We wish the earpiece fit was a little better.

The Bottom Line The Samsung WEP460 is certainly an affordable and easy-to-use headset, but we suggest looking elsewhere for one with better sound quality.

Samsung is so well known for its cell phones that some may forget it also makes a number of Bluetooth headsets, many of which are quite affordable. One such headset is the Samsung WEP460, a lower-end model. You have to make some sacrifices to get that lower price, though, as the sound quality of the Samsung WEP460 is simply mediocre. So even though the WEP460 is only $40, you might want to consider looking at other headsets--even other Samsung sets such as the Samsung WEP200 .

We won't lie to you: the Samsung WEP460 won't impress anyone with its cheap design. Measuring 1.85 inches long by 0.75 inch wide by 0.43 inch thick, the WEP460 has a lightweight, plastic body and simple, rectangular shape. On the front under the Samsung logo is a skinny, clear, plastic button that acts as the multifunction call button. It's slightly raised above the surface, so it's easy to find by feel. Right underneath that is a slim sliver of a blue LED that flashes when the headset is active. The volume rocker and charger jack are on the left spine.

On the back of the headset is a round earpiece with a rubbery earbud cover. The earpiece is a little big for our tastes, though we did manage to wedge it just inside the folds of the ear. It felt OK at first, but the longer we wore it, the more uncomfortable it felt. Also, the earpiece sits slightly outside of the ear canal, and because of that, you do need to crank the volume a bit more than usual. We wish it came with different sizes of ear bud covers. The WEP460 comes with an optional plastic ear hook, which you might need, since the headset doesn't feel too secure without it.
