I got this for my truck-driver husband and he is very happy with it. It definitely beats the price of the Plantronics headsets and it is just as nice. I can hear him very well and it does cancel some of the background noise. The headset is very lightweight and minimalistic, it does have two small buttons on the side that control the volume and the power on/off button is the silver one on the outside. Once you turn it on, it automatically tries to pair with your phone. Great purchase.
