I've owned the 870 for a couple of months and I'm still happy with the purchase. The biggest surprise was how well the thing works as a standalone headset, the dual mic noise reduction works great on everything except wind. The biggest omission is the lack of any music AVRCP transport controls. Would it have been too much trouble to but a pause control on the headset? When I bought it, Samsung had a $20 mail in rebate so I ended up paying $7.88 shipped. I've owned a bunch of bt headsets including a Plantronics 855 and a Jawbone, even at $30, this headsets a great deal!
