Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.

The Good:It's worked

The Bad:The worst Batttery life

I just bought new unit and since the first start the standby time of the battery is only approx. 2 hours (untill totally off), playing music less than an hour (the first 5 minutes red led light up and less than an hour totally off), talk time less than 5 minutes and low battery led (red)light up.

The Good:It works

The Bad:Difficult pairing

Here's the solution for pairing with Iphone:

Plug the bluetooth headset into the USB power slot. Then press the main button for 5 secs until the red light starts flashing rapidly. Now pair your Iphone, by entering the PIN: 0000.

The Good:Excellent for motorcyclists (and the gym!)

The Bad:Turning off is fiddly as others have suggested

Only bluetooth headset I have seen that can be worn easily under a helmet (all others clip over ear and are too bulky). You can use your own earbuds if you don't like those supplied, so no issue. Hope I can find another set when this one dies!

The Good:Small, lightweigth with reasonable sound

The Bad:Toggle switch a bit temporamental

I had the same issue with the pass code not recognised. Make sure when first scanning for blutooth devices for the BT-100/BT-81 that the centre button is depressed for 5 seconds until the red/blue light rapidly flashes. Your BT-100 should find your mobile straight away. Mine did and hope this helps.

The Good:Small

The Bad:Cannot Pair to my Nokia

The manual suggest using "0000" to enable a pairing, but this does not work, fails to authenticate. I bought two units and both fail to connect.

The Good:Inexpensive, light, easy to use.

The Bad:Sound quality could be better. Reccurring glith in the audio transmission.

I've had BT-100 set for a month now. Works fine with my O2 XDA Atom, including volume controls while running Mortplayer (haven't checked Media Player, should work too). It 'hic-ups' every couple of minutes with a very short glitch in the audio. Not sure if it is the BT-100 or the Atom to blame.

Couldn't pair BT-100 up with my old iPAQ HX4700 although the iPAQ used to work HP bluetooth stereo headphones. I bought BT-100 after the HPs packed up. The HPs sounded better. I am considering buying iPhone stereo adapter to be able to connect better quality, 'normal' stereo headset.

Gennerlly, I'm happy with the BT-100 set.

One other thing, a little strange. It shows as BT-81 on the device list, not as BT-100. Suspecting outdated firmware but cannot find an upgrade.
