The Good Easy to slip on and off; good mike placement.

The Bad Some users may not like the plastic earpiece; no Answer/End button.

The Bottom Line The M120 costs less than the similarly styled M130, but it's arguably not quite as comfortable.

CNET Editors' Rating

6.0 Overall

The M120, like the step-up , is a stylish, relatively comfortable over-the-ear style headset that offers decent sound quality and is particularly well suited for in-car use. But some may prefer the M130's earpiece.

Comfort counts
Similar in design to , the M120 features a hard plastic earpiece that rests on top of your ear and is arguably a tad less comfortable than the M130's foam padded earpiece. That said, the unit slips on and off easily and is fairly light and secure. In fact, we found it more secure than Jabra's EarWrap.

As for features, the M120 has a mike adjustment switch but not the in-line volume control found on the step-up . Unfortunately, it doesn't have an Answer/End button.

A sound buy
We have no complaints in the audio department. Callers sounded loud and clear and said they didn't have any trouble hearing us, except in windy conditions.

The M124 list for $29.95, but you should be able to find it for $10 less, which still doesn't qualify it as a bargain. Is it worth stepping up to the more expensive M130? That's hard to say because we didn't find a huge difference between the two units, but some may find the M130 slightly more comfortable.
