Voice quality is awful.Voice quality is awful when used as a cellphone headset. We paired the MGS4 Headset to a Motorola RAZR, Samsung Blackjack, a Nokia 6131, and a Dell laptop and the results were the same. When used with the PS3, the voice quality was slightly better, but still not as good as other Bluetooth headsets.
- Proprietary USB charger.
- Uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Conclusion – UPDATED
We’re bummed. BIG TIME. We wanted this headset to be awesome, and for the price it should be. We could look past the proprietary USB charging cable, but we can’t overlook the terrible sound quality when used with a cell phone. If you want people you call or are playing with online to actually understand what you are saying we suggest you try a different Bluetooth headset.
Wireless Metal Gear Headset
Wow, we didn’t expect this review would be so popular! Many of you have asked if the headset was fully charged, and yes it was charged for 8 hours before tested as per the instructions. And to be fair it’s entirely possible our headset is just defective, here’s a video a user has posted where the sound quality is passable. We purchased this headset directly from Gamestop online so it appears results may vary. We still maintain that for the money this headset should work as well as something like a Jawbone Headset.
To address a few more of your random questions and comments: Yes, I suppose I do look a little like Nick Frost. And yes, I do enjoy good muffins from time to time. Have a great weekend!
