The M130 is fairly light and slips easily on and off either ear, though it does require some tinkering to get a secure fit. The foam-padded speaker, which is a bit bigger than the ear bud, sits against your ear, not inside it. We also appreciated the adjustable mike, which extends to almost mouth level.
The M130 works with cordless phones, telecoil-equipped hearing aids, and cell phones. However, it lacks an integrated answer/end button. If you're looking for in-line volume control, you'll have to step up to the M135.
One area where the M130 really shines is in audio. Plantronics uses a noise-canceling microphone to achieve better sound quality. Callers came through loud and clear, and they had no trouble hearing us.
The M130 lists for $45, but you should be able to find it for less than $20. At that price, it's a decent deal.
