    I bought this headset at the recommendation of my brother-in-law who is a truck driver after I ran my previous bluetooth through the washing machine.. I have to admit that the sound quality of this headset is excellent. It sounds like the person you are talking to is sitting right next to you. So why did I only give it a 3 star rating? Right from the beginning I began to have problems with the battery not holding a charge. I could charge all day and within about 5 minutes of use the headphones would begin to beep indicating I needed to charge the batteries. The other problem I had was that although the sound quality was outstanding I found myself wanting to remove the headphones every chance I got because they are quite bulky. I also wasn't please with the voice commands. Every time I told the headset to call my wife it thought I wanted it to call back the last number dialed. Also, the buttons also are small and spaced very close together which meant that every time I went to push a button I had to be careful or I would push the wrong one. After having the Blue Parrot 450 for less than 2 weeks I turned it off and went into my office one morning, when I came back out an hour later it would not turn back on, and it was hot to the touch. I really tried to like the Blue Parrot but in the end I returned it and bought another Plantronics Voyager Legend for about half the price. I won't go as far as to say that the Blue Parrot 450 is not a good bluetooth because I know it gets excellent reviews overall ............. it just wasn't the best for me.

    This is a firm but honest review. Battery life on this Bluetooth is AMAZING... very clear voice on both ends of the phone. A little heavy on the head and ear part causes discomfort when using to long. The bix says 300 ft range. I experienced different. My range was outside my truck to about 40 ft away. I got this range from my 40 ft container that I haul. At long as the phone is with u there shouldnt be any complaints with range. I charged once and maybe its just me but been using this Bluetooth for 3 days one charge not sure if Bluetooth turns its self off when not in use over a period of time but my phone shows the graph of battery life on Bluetooth and it still shows full charge. Get this which is weird but about not even 25% was used then I didnt use it anymore for the night and some way some how it seems like it rechaged itself... I hope someone else can attest to this... Either way this battery life is the best battery I delt with ever.. Hope this helps in choosing from my review.

    better in ways lacking in some

    so I am a trucker and have had the bx250, the 250 plus, the 350, expressway II and now the 450. while improvements have been made this headset still lacks in other areas. Pros: Much better construction and durability compared to previous models BEST in industry noise cancelling and sound quality long battery life Cons: this headset tends to pinch the head due to it being much beefier and it is MUCH bigger than the 350 model. If wearing for long periods of time 4+ hours straight your ear will hurt plain and simple from the pressure of the headset. The FOAM piece that covers the headset speaker is JUNK. it doesnt fit properly and will fall off at least once a day... this is something that the blueparrots have ALWAYS done and for 150 bucks this shouldnt be an issue period. Overall this headset is of great quality and is a must for truck drivers as it is handsdown better than all other competition but there are some things that blue parrot needs to do to earn this headset 5 stars

    I bought this because of the recommendation of a friend. I prefer using this over my hands free Sync system because my vehicle has poor volume and it’s voice commands don’t work that well. This allows you to use Siri to make calls, as well as all other associated abilities. The other big thing for me, I’m a service technician, and needed something to talk to tech support while having my hands free to troubleshoot. The ability to do this in loud industrial environments is a huge plus! The noise cancellation allows the other party to hear me as well. You can even have a conversation with your vehicle windows rolled all the way down at highway speeds! The voice command (in the headset itself) is also handy. When receiving a call with the headset on, it will announce the caller ID, then ask “Answer or Ignore”. You just say “Answer” and you’re connected, no button press needed.

    The good: This headset does it's job well. High call volume in noisy environments, extreme noise cancellation for the other party and awesome battery life. The not so good: Spring tension on the headset makes the ear cup uncomfortable when wearing it in place for extended periods. The multi function button and parrot button are not very easy to distinguish when paying attention to other tasks like driving. My opinion is that the two buttons should swap places. Overall, this is my second favorite bluetooth ever and I have owned probably twenty. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who is not offended by its air traffic controller styling.

    This B450XT has me in awe. I am a truck driver and this headset makes the other party on my line think I am working in a library because there is no noise in the background from the truck. Better than the 250XT I had. The only problem I have with this headset is you ear starts to feel a little pain when on for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Not really a problem for me. I just take it off for 10 minutes for my ear to breathe then stick it back on. The noise canceling is superb. Most of the time, I have to turn the volume down when I am on the phone because the other line is too loud in my ear. All in All, Awesome headset.

    This is my 3rd Blue Parrot headset and it is amazing for what I needed it for which is in my truck or car. The software which supposedly allows you to customize the "Parrot" button is junk and doesn't work with any of the headsets I have. For the price this should not be. That being said I didn't need any customization for my use and what they do is perfect. High sound quality and noise dampening boom mics. To get better quality you will have to pay double to triple the price. Everyone I know who has one of these loves it. So there.

    The sound quality on both ends is excellent. It's also reasonably simple to use. I haven't downloaded the app for it yet, so I can't say anything about the extra functions available through that. The only two complaints I have are 1) like others have said, the ear pad needs to be a bit bigger so it sits around the lobe rather than on it. It does get uncomfortable if you try wearing it for extended periods. 2) It doesn't stay in place very well. But this may be due as much to my bald head as it is to any design issue. Neither of this problems is significant enough to cause me to do anything but praise this headset.
