First Look: Iqua BHS-702

1:37 /

The Iqua BHS-702 is a simple and affordable stereo Bluetooth headset with great sound and fit.

Music ^M00:00:03 >>I'm Nicole Lee, associate editor at CNET.com. And this is the IQUA BHS 702 pendent style Bluetooth headset. This is a stereo Bluetooth headset, so you can pair this with a stereo Bluetooth compatible phone or mp3 player so you can string music wirelessly. It's attached via a very long lanyard/wire to a pair of in-ear ear buds. So the way you wear it is you wear it around the neck like so, and then you pull along the-these two wires to adjust the length of the lanyard, and then you go ahead an put the earbuds in your ear to listen. Everything is controlled via the pendant controller right here. So there's the one multifunction button on--in the middle. And on the side there are the two volume buttons. Everything is controlled with multifunction and the two volume keys. So you play/pause music with this button, you make calls with this button. We just think it's a little bit too many functions with just very few keys. We would have preferred it if there were dedicated music player controls on the device itself. Sound quality-wise, it was actually pretty good. The earbuds fit really good in the ear. They sound fantastic. The call quality was good as well. We paired it with a Blackberry Pro. We also paired it with a Helio Misto, and the sound quality was great. And the overall price for this stereo Bluetooth headset is around 50 dollars. So it's pretty affordable as well, as far as stereo headsets go. My only complaint was that there's a lot of wire. My name is Nicole Lee. This has been the IQUA BHS 702. ^M00:01:33 [ Music ]
