Testing and Final Thoughts


The HS-200 Gold headset comes with 3 sizes of ear tips: small, medium and large.  This should allow you to find a good fit for your comfort level.  However, it is very important that you get the right size for your ears as if you end up using the wrong size you may not get the best listening quality.  I found that with the small size, the bass was lacking, but with the large size, the treble was lacking.  In the end the medium size was the best choice for me as it provided good levels all around, not to mention it fit the best in my sound holes.  Another feature I noticed was that the cord - although is like a normal rubber cord - feels stronger than that of other headsets and earphones I have experienced.  This is a plus.



Although the cord feels more durable, the downside is that it gets tangled as easily as the others.  Another upside however, is that the cord length is the perfect size.  Other in-ear headsets or earphones that I've used have a cord that is always too short or too long.  With this headset, it’s just the right length.  The clothing clip is great though as its low profile and yet you can position it anywhere on the cord that best suits you and where you need it most. 


The control unit on the cord that holds the mic, volume and connect/disconnect button seems a little bit fragile.  I have not tested the strength of it per se, but it might crack or break if you are too rough with it.  That aside, the in-line volume control is a great feature and it is usually something I demand on any headset that I get.  I did notice that if my phone was on full volume and the in-line volume was at zero, you would still be able to hear the music faintly, but I have no qualms with that.  The connect/disconnect button works as expected and is easy to use.
