CNET First Look
LG HBM-905 headsetThe LG HBM-905 is a fine Bluetooth headset with voice alerts, a unique design, and decent audio quality.
I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for CNET.com and this is a First Look at the LG HBM-905 Bluetooth Headset. It's a rather large headset as you can see here. This is the successor to the LG HBM-900. It's a little bit smaller but it's still a pretty big headset by today's standards. The larger boom mic is meant for enhanced audio quality. There are 3 microphones at the tip here. They're meant for extra noise cancellation. The entire top part of this front surface presses down to act as the multifunction call button. There's a flexible earhook as you can see here. It's a little bit cheap and flimsy so you do have to be careful with it. The LG HBM-905 has the usual Bluetooth headset features like answering, ending, and rejecting calls. It also has a voice alert system that lets you know whether the headset is paired. It also lets you know incoming caller ID. The sound quality was pretty crisp and clear. Voice quality was pretty good as well. The LG HBM-905 is available for around $100 which is pretty pricey, but you can get it cheaper if you look around online. I'm Nicole Lee, this has been the First Look at the LG HBM-905.
