    I'm familiar with their Mpow bluetooth connection in cars (to play music from smartphone apps, take calls with older model vehicles)...I know the headset people in class talk about Parrot mainly, are closer to $100 but I have great experience with this brands bluetooth to play music...Anyone use this or have any experience with this for talking & steady connectivity in the truck (OTR - different states)? Any suggestions or feedback about this product is much appreciated;). I wanted to order it to have after being done with orientation+drivers trainer period....

    I’ve been using the MPOW for several years and have had no problems. Seems to hold a charge for a long time, and it is loud, I’m half deaf, and I can hear clearly. Also the noise limiting mic, works well as I can be heard with the window down. It’s so good that I’ve bought them for my son and daughter, and talking with them is crystal clear. Occasionally Amazon has a substitute brand, and they also seem exactly the same. And yes you can listen to music, radio, even my police scanner app on the iPhone. For $20 you can’t go wrong. I don’t know how a Parrot could make me happier.

    I have one it’s hard to understand some people but overall it’s a good bang for the buck.

    You can not beat this, I’ve been using them and have given them to my adult children for years now. Not very fashionable, but I can hear very clearly and the mic is where you need it. Battery seems to last better than the one in my iPhone. Charges quick too.
    It will also work with google maps and any other source playing in the background. Do not buy any model that will not play music in the background!! Occasionally some will be listed under other brands, but most come from Amazon, no matter what the brand name is.
    For me total 5 star ⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ product
    Much cooler looking than that big old ugly Parrot. Yep I’m sure they have more features, but for a good basic headset this, you could buy 5 of these vs 1 of the Parrot. If you don’t like it just it return to Amazon for free. .
