Microphone - for a bud - is pretty good, with windscreen that s effective at 10mph or so. The rubber that clamps the earlobe is rather rigid, annoying after a while. A seam in the clamp really hurts after a while, but it s easy to cut with a razor blade. Output sound is relatively loud (efficient speaker) but sound quality is rather muffled. It s OK for speech, and an elderly person might not mind the sound, but this is certainly not for hi-fi music. No treble. Cheap, and I certainly would buy it again.
This is excellent for cellphone use while driving, because you can hangup or pickup your phone with a push of the button at the ear, no need to look for the on-hook/off-hook button on your phone. And it s loud enough you could hear over your car noise. Microphone is good at stopping wind noise, but not for stopping car noise. But beware - another model (same price, looks identical in photographs) does not have this pushbutton feature, and it won t work on all phones. I use it with a Palm Centro.
