    I used $50 in loves points to get a road king 400 headset.

    https://www.carid.com/ic/roadking/headphones/rk300_6.jpg

    I dont like it. The voulume on max seems low, it connects, looses connection, connects alot, It feels cheaply made.

    After that i said i can do better for cheaper. This is what i found

    Over Head Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Boom Mic Headset Headphone Noise Cancelling | eBay

    $23. My voice is heard very clear, it shrinks enlarges for a better fit, the quality seems well made, the sound is loud and high quality.

    Too bad you had to waste 5000 points on a POS headset. Thanks for the review.

    Your ebay link just brings me to a page of ebay ads. Not sure if its just my computer.

    I believe you gotta leave one ear open, you are not gonna hear much what's going on around you with that headset

    Well leaving one ear "open" would be ok if it actually really covered the ear. That headset the OP linked to doesn't do that. I mean its on the ear but its not like its an aviation noise cancelling headset. Yours is definitely nice but maybe overkill.

    I don't know, I know little about these. I have a wired one.

    I bought a RK950 on 7/3. 7/5 it came all to pieces. The band came loose from the ear piece. Whole thing came apart when I tried to push back together. Loves Travel Center in Jasper Al replaced and the mic boom fell off the replacement 3 days later. Were do I get a Refund?

    Left my blue parrot at home. Picked the cheap road king 940. Not amused. The volume is too low, the microphone is bad, nobody can hear me. I have a broken good road king I think the wires broke. Am gonna switch the board and microphone. But not worth buying.

    My first headset was a BlueParrot, B420XL maybe, don't recall the exact model. It was excellent, but after about 20 months, the battery started dieing, losing capacity, etc.

    I thought I'd save some bucks, bought a RoadKing headset, and that was the first and last RoadKing product on which I will ever waste money. Junk. Volume problems. Connectivity hassles. Comfort issues.

    I'm back to another Blue Parrot, C400XT. Only complaint... I mean other than I can't figure out a really good way to hang it when not in use, is that it doesn't tell me my battery level like my first BP did.

    BP are pricey, but you get what you pay for.
