The excessive voice prompts was partly mitigated by a recent update, but I really don't need to hear "Next" and "Previous" when I change tracks.
I primarily use this for music streaming, and sometimes bike-bike intercom with my wife. Coming from etymotic ER6i ear buds was a shock.
The music quality is so so, the speakers don't have a very good balanced response and reproduce way to much in the higher frequencies. I had to do a lot of tweaking on my music player (Cowon S9) to get the music to sound okay, removed mp3gain tags and equalized the output. The speakers still seem to almost drop out midrange audio at lower volumes, for example quieter lyric in a song if you're not at max volume may nearly disappear. For what it is... good enough I'd say.
We've only used the intercom a few times, but it works very nice. Voice quality is excellent, my wife speaks very softly but I had no problem understanding her at 60+MPH. Full duplex is really nice and the noise reduction is very impressive. You pretty much hear just the other person, no wind noise that I could detect.
The menu is a bit confusing, however it works well enough..
I've had the occasional problem getting my cowon to connect via bluetooth, seems intermittent.. might be my admittedly somewhat old player.
Can't really say much about durability, only had it for a few weeks.. so average.
all in all, excellent product.
Yes, I recommend this product.
