Samsung Modus HM3500

Pros
  • Mono-to-stereo convertible
  • High-quality audio for music
  • Effective noise cancellation
Cons
  • No music controls on the headset
  • No built-in voice commands

As a mono-to-stereo convertible Bluetooth headset, the Samsung Modus HM3500 provides warm sound quality during calls and good quality music for background listening. When listening to music through the stereo headphones, the headset hangs around a person's neck like a pendant. Reviewers consider the Modus HM3500 to be a good value stereo headset for its price. Its effective noise cancellation contributes to the good call sound quality. However, both professional reviewers and users find the earpiece to be uncomfortable.

PCMag.com places the Modus HM3500 at number six in its top 10 list of best Bluetooth headsets, making it their highest-ranking stereo set and the only one in the top 10. The reviewers at both TopTenReviews.com and at PCMag.com put the Modus HM3500 headset through its paces along with the other headsets they reviewed. Applying the same test criteria to all the headsets, they then compare the results and rank the models. With such a small number of user reviews at Amazon.com, it's difficult to get a picture of how users experience the Modus HM3500.
