I really like how the curve of the device allows it to hug the neck and shoulders and makes it non restrictive. Sound quality is better than I expected and the retractable ear buds are great for someone who always seemed to get it caught up in clothing or maybe a seat belt. I recommend this product.

Positive:- The sound quality and product product quality of this product are amazing for the price.- Easy to pair (Literally took me 2 seconds with my iPhone X)- Slick design- Flexible bodyNegative:- Package was a little dinged up when it got deliveredOverall conclusion:I strongly recommend this product.There are so many Bluetooth headphones so it can be overwhelming to find the “right one.”But I can easily recommend this over other products.
The sound quality if aweful and there is no noise cancellation. I literally feel like i have thrown away $60. They do have a really nice design and they feel expensive but once i powered them on they sounded like JUNK!!

Looking for a replacement for my LG headphones without dropping $100 for my third headset with only 1 earphone working.These look and feel like lower quality, but the use of the is better than all of my LG headsets. They improved over some LG design flaws that I didn’t even realize were flaws until I put these on! The sound quality is superb: highs, lows, and midrange are all crisp! They sound like expensive headphones.The earbuds are very comfortable and the mechanisms work well. The option to engage the speaker for ambient sound is seamless and works really well for running and cycling. The headset ergonomics are nicely contoured, and you forget that you are wearing them so easily, you can fall asleep without realizing you have them on.Everything about these is great, except the bluetooth receiver. The connection is interrupted when I move or turn my head. I will exchange these for a different pair in case I got a lemon. They work great unless you try to use them. I will update my review if the second pair is better, otherwise; maybe these are tethered to great headphones and these need to go back down the escalator into the tunnels.
I’ve had many “around the neck” bluetooth headsets, this by far seems to be the best!Super easy instructions, at initial power on, it goes automatically into pairing mode. The auto answer/accept/decline is GREAT!Definately worth the money. (And I almost never say that!!!)
Quest for Quality –
I literally use my bluetooth headsets all day long, for almost every purpose. I run and skate several times weekly, and use my headset for business calls etc. For the last several years, I have owned whatever LG’s top-of-the line was at the time, the last being the LG 920, which I was very happy with until I fell asleep with it around my neck and woke up to find I had yanked it off in my sleep and broke the band. I actually repaired it with some duct tape, but it was wonky after that so I decided to look for something new. I’ve had this EXFIT now for a month or so, and I’m just super impressed. The sound quality is a major improvement over the LG, it is lighter weight, and has none of the bluetooth connection issues that I occasionally had with the LG. At about half the price I paid for the 920, and about 1/2 the price of the new LG 1100, I don’t think you can beat this device.

Very light weight, flexible, sound quality it’s good. Fast connect to phone once it has been paired for the 1st time. Able to connect to two devices. I use my work phone and personal and both can connect at the same time. Able to answer calls when cords are pull out by pressing answering button. End/receive calls by pulling/retracting.

I’ve been using neckband style headsets for years now, all LG. I’ve had the HBS-800, HBS-850, and HBS-A80. My HBS-A80 was getting a short in the left ear, so it was time to get a new headset. LG didn’t have any new “active” style headsets that offered sweat/splash resistance, so I decided to research other brands. I came across the Exfit BCS-700, which seemed to have all of the features I wanted as well as good reviews, so I decided to give it a shot. I’ve been using it for a few days, and while I haven’t put it though *all* the paces yet, I like it so far.Pros:- simplified controls. My HBS-A80 had two rocker buttons and two regular buttons (not including power button). The BCS-700 has one rocker and one button (not including power switch or audio passthrough switch). The simplified controls may not be for everyone, but I like how the buttons, etc. are minimized.- volume. These seem to get louder than my HBS-A80 set, which is good for yard work.- retractable. This is an absolute necessity. I don’t want headphones dangling everywhere, I want to be able to easily secure them when not in use.- call quality. My wife hated trying to talk to me with the HBS-A80. I’d often switch it off Bluetooth in a call and hold the phone up to my head because otherwise the quality was intolerable. My wife said this headset actually sounds “good”. I haven’t tried talking in a noisy place yet but initial conversations seem to be good.- sweat proof – I’m not gonna go dunk this thing and prove how water proof it is, but it’s nice to have peace of mind and not worry about getting this thing wet when I’m doing yard work, fishing, or whatever else.Cons:- retractable feature quality. Overall this is not a big concern, but I think that LG uses better quality retractor mechanisms, the headphones snap into place. The headphones don’t feel like they really snap into place on this.- vibration. LG seemed to be able to make the whole headset feel like it was vibrating. This only vibrates on one side.- rocker switch, more like a slider. It’s kind of awkward to have to grab ahold of the headset and push the rocker switch/slider in whatever direction you want.- battery life. It would be nice if it had a little longer battery life. I’m already in the habit of charging every day, but 12 hours of battery life would be better.- size – this headset is large, bigger than the HBS-A80 and the other headsets I’ve had. I’m a big guy so it’s not noticable on me, but it might look big on smaller people.Neither pro nor con, just things I thought were odd:- EQ settings. There’s normal, bass, and treble. Normal and bass seem to cut out a lot of mid-range frequencies. I leave this on treble, and it sounds almost exactly like my HBS-A80. No complaint, just an oddity.- “Audio transparency”. If you turn this on, the headset mixes whatever comes in through the mics into whatever you’re listening to. I can’t figure out how this is useful unless maybe as a safety feature. Basically ambient noise comes through sounding like it’s coming through a telephone and with a very short delay.Overall the cons are just very minor annoyances, this meets pretty much all of the requirements I have for a headset, and if mine was lost or stolen I’d buy it again without even shopping around.I’ll update this again later if more new information comes to light.————————————–UPDATE:I’ve had time to put this headset through a good amount of testing and wanted to report back. I’ve spent multiple days with this thing working outside, sweating profusely, and it has held up fantastically. No concerns with its build quality, it’s solid.Something I forgot to mention in my original review is the Bluetooth range, which is outstanding. Better range than any LG headset I’ve owned.I complained about the battery life in my original review, but after extensive usage, the battery lasts long enough for a full day of usage, and maybe then some. As long as you charge it at the end of the day, you’ll be fine.Regarding music: I’ve listened to a good bit of metal with this, which has a lot of heavy, low bass lines, double bass kicks, etc. Oddly enough, when this is in “treble” mode, the bass sounds distorted. When in “normal” or “bass” modes, it sounds less distorted. So I’m a bit disappointed in that, but since I primarily listen to podcasts, this isn’t really an issue for me. Might be for someone that listens to more music and is trying to temper the bass a bit by setting it to treble mode.

Good quality, good sound. Terrible noise cancellation, would not recommend for for phone calls while in a vehicle or anywhere with background noise
the right side doesnt retrack all the way inside
Battery life could be better.
Love these, I bought them to wear in more formal settings like work. I forget I wear them most times, since they just a become an accessory when I’m not using them. The cord is very thin, so I’m certainly careful with them. No complaints.
