First Look: LG HBM-235 Bluetooth headset

1:14 /

Even though the LG HBM-235 doesn't have all the bells and whistles of more expensive headsets, it offers acceptable audio quality considering its bargain-basement price.

I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for CNET.com and this is the LG HBM-235 Bluetooth headset. If you want a really simple, very affordable Bluetooth headset, this headset is for you. As you can see, it's very typical, very generic looking design here, nothing on the front, very rectangular design. On the top here is a very easy-to-use multifunction call button. It clicks up and down very easily. On the back is a simple earpiece with an earbud cover. There's also a flexible ear hook. Features of the headset are really basic. You get the usual answer, ending, and rejecting calls feature. You also get last number redial and call waiting support. However, even though it's really basic, the HBM-235 has pretty good audio quality. The HBM-235 also has Multi-Point support that means it can connect up to two devices at the same time. The LG HBM-235 is only $40 retail. I'm Nicole Lee, this has been a First Look at the LG HBM-235.
