Only thing I am not sure of about them....
Bluetooth can only be linked with one device at a time.  Thus is has security feature so not just anyone can pick it up.  The headset, however, is being advertised that you can go from music to phone while on the go: "The iCombi AH10 presents music lovers, including iPod users, around the world with a stylish and wireless way of listening to music on the move while never missing another call."

This false advertising or just a mistake and they meant you can switch back and forth....I'll see what I can find out.
