Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Sound in/out- poor ergonics & comfort There's no question about the outgoing and incoming sound quality of the Etyblu2. Sound quality is excellent and what you would expect from Etymotic. That said, there are several design features that I have problems with.1. The ear clip to mount the Etyblu2 on your ear is not very good and sort of cheap. It's merely a thin, curved piece of metal with a rubber sleeve on the portion that goes behind your ear. The exposed tip of the metal should be filed down because it's sharp and can scratch your neck if you're not careful. It also does not give you a snug fit and needs constant adjusting. Plus, it's not a bendable piece of metal, so you can't tweak it a little to customize it for your ear size. Honestly, I think they could do far better here if they tried.2. The Silver on-off/main control button is poorly placed on the outside face of the unit. You must press it in to enable functions and that makes you push the unit into your ear. It requires a firm push and therefore, it can be irritating and sometimes painful jamming the earpiece into your ear canal.My suggestion to engineering is to make the volume buttons a skosh smaller and move the main function button just below them on the same outside edge. This will eliminate pressing the unit uncomfortably into your ear to use the function button. As with the volume buttons, your thumb would steady the unit on one side and your forefinger can press as hard as needed to activate the functions without irritating your ear. This also puts all controls on the same side of the unit for easier fingering.3. There is no signal from the earpiece when you turn the unit on or off and that would be a simple and useful addition.4. It would be nice if some kind of case was included to store the unit when you're not using it. I've been putting mine in an unused hardshell sunglasses case, which works fine.I'm very satisfied with the sound quality but not pleased with the ergonomics. February 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply the best I own three of these, kept in different places and/or rotated on the charger. For listening, the noise isolation makes it usable in noisy environments. When talking, the ability to position the mic very close to your mouth means you can speak in a low voice and be heard clearly instead of having to yell. January 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great for my needs! The ETY Blu2 works great and has met my expectations! I have 2 desk phones and 1 company cell phone plus my personal I-phone linked to my ETY Blu2. Love the hands-free opportunity and clarity of the calls. I work 8-5 M-F in the Operations Center of an electric utility so you can imagine the volume of calls, especially during adverse weather conditions. The stand-by and talk time are very adequate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Needs better wearability First of all, awesome product! The noise cancelling is superb and the sound is crisp and clear.This is the only area where the trouble lies, the product lacks comfort in wear because of the "slapped together" ear hook.Its like they ran out of ideas and creativity when it came to figuring out how the client will actually wear the unit.The metal hook falls out all the time, because the rubber holder expands and because the unit swings so much in the ear, I have to constantly adjust to keep it in place.We love the product and we've bought several units over the years. Great warranty program and awesome customer service!! PLEASE R&D figure out a better way to wear the unit and I will never ever leave! ;-) August 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unbelieveable I do technical support calls for my business in the arena DURING an NHL hockey game using the Ety-Blu, no problem. Be sure the mic is near your mouth. If it's under your chin, the caller won't hear you. Not much on style but the performance is fabulous. July 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great Technology - Shame about the ergonomics Whilst the headset technology is great it suffers from a number of major design faults.1 - The headset sits too far away from your head. On my head (and read instance on another Amazon UK review) the headset naturally sits about 10mm away from the skin and so ends up flapping about like a wet fish.2 - The main button is not easily located without removing the headset and looking. Try doing that whilst driving and needing to answer a call!3 - There is no audio notification of use of the main button. e.g. simple beep on power up or power down. Connection to Bluetooth device, etc.I bought it specifically for its noise cancellation and microphone cancellation capabilities when driving a soft top car and these work great. Just a shame that the poor ergonomics of the headset make it unusable. April 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the best bluetooth headset period. After trying virtually every bluetooth headset on the market, the EtyBlu2 blows the other ones away. Absolute sound perfection. Can conduct business on a busy New York Street without missing a beat. Sure you can buy a bulky boom or a can type headset, but they are impractical for day to day business. I've purchased several just to keep a few for back-up. Yes they are that good. January 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pleased 12.17.12, Problem update 11.20.13 Both incoming and outgoing sound quality are the best I've experienced. Comparable to a quality wired boom unit. I solved the lack of a2dp and voice command compatibility by using the Mono Bluetooth Router app that came out 12.2.12. To improve sound volume I went to Michael's craft store and got two part silicone molding putty for $10 on sale to make my own custom earpiece. Use enough silicone putty to allow the rectangle of the etyblu2 to nestle and upon curing it holds it at the perfect angle making the earhook unneeded. If you don't like the purple color of Michael's silicone putty you can order Radians Brand flesh colored putty from a sporting goods store online for $20 and get enough for two earpieces. The purple Michael's brand gives you a half pound to make several or for trial & error. Again, "very pleased." (12.17.12)UPDATE As of 11.20.13: I've now had the etymotic Blu2 for a year. Function and quality are still excellent after changing the earwax filter. However, I have found the boom to be fragile when placed in a pocket and forgotten. After repeated bending of the boom the boom cracks at the earpiece and dangles from the wires. A stronger LESS flexible boom would be in order. I "patched" the one I have by "splinting" two small black zipties to the boom/earpiece connection with super glue. Then I used black electrical shrink tubing over the "splints". That reinforced half the boom from the earpiece down with the small black zipties and shrink tubing. Still looks ok, just thicker. I will buy another etyblu2 when I break this earpiece a final time, but I will "splint" and zip tie the boom right away. November 20, 2013
