i bought one on the 16th Jun2012.  After 3 jogging sessions (half an hour each session), the headset went haywire.  Buttons cannot work and cannot turn off.  Got a replace set on the 24th June.  After one jogging session, same symptom happen.  Cannot believe it.  Just got back from CareCentre and they said got no stock.

Re: BH-505 Problem

Bought a BH-505 on the 17th June.  Not woking after 5 days.  Got a replacement on the 7th day.  Not working again after 2 days.  Got a replacement on the 2nd Jul.  Not working again on the 5th........what is going on ?  Do i need to keep getting a replacement every week ?  Is very frustrating

Plastic cracking multiple places on right ear frame

I have a different problem. 

I have had the bh-505 for about 1.5 years. Occasionally it loses synch with my iPod but I have always recovered by starting the 'find' and 'pair' process over again.

BUT

In the time I have used it the right frame above the earbud has cracked in three separate places. It is now at the point where I may not be able to glue it together again. (crazy glue used to work). 

This is all the more peculiar since I do not use the right hand side controls since I do not use the phone functions.

Has anyone else encountered this annoying problem? 

Has anyone else found a satisfactory solution?

Thanks

Barry

Re: BH-505 Problem

i totally agree after a while (quicker with more physical activity) they will fail. I am on my second set and they just failed, I will not be getting another now looking at other wireless headset options.

Re: BH-505 Problem

Thank GOD they finally decided to refund me - after 4 replacement in less than a month.  Whew...... I am surprise NOKIA didn't take all these feedback seriously and verify.   As a large corp, i think u have a duty to sell reliable product to public.  Can u imagine how inconvenience it was for me to go down 4 times in less than 4 weeks to get the replacements ?  Please remove this model from the market if the review is so bad.

Re: BH-505 Problem

My 7 months old Nokia BH-505 has already been replaced one. Now when it has no warranty , another problem has crept up. After getting fully charged, my headset is refusing to turn on. I've tried hard reset and draining its battery by keeping uncharged for couple of days. Nothing seems to work. When I took it to Nokia Care Centre, they refused to have a look at it by giving the explanation that it is not under warranty and accesssories are only replaced not repaired. I am very frustrated at Nokia for providing such pathetic service. This is my last resort to get a solution to fix this issue. So, please give me some suggestions to solve this issue.

Re: BH-505 Problem

Sad. My 2 days old Nokia BH-505 has exactly the same issue after 1h on my bike. Can't turn it off, other buttons work well.

Re: BH-505 Problem

I also have the same expeiemce with my third replacement. Sadly, the purchase date is just tenth of September this yea. O do think keep replacing is not an option for me. My old motorola headset is just working well after two years. No way should a company produce such faulty headset model for the market. It is totally a disaster for users and Nokia. Product recall is a must as you notice the problem is common and keeps annoying users.

I will send my third bh505 to service center, which is an hour away from my home, tomorrow. Let see how long time can the fourth last. Probably two days give or take, my bet.

Do not buy this model for gym, hiking, cycling.

I did reset, re-pairing with other device but there is no change in it resulting baaaadddddddd xperiance:smileyvery-happy:

 

Hey guys please don't buy this damn good device whatever come through Nokia and also the customer service is very very worst. "Name is customer care but there is no CARE at all"  damn good device(BH-505):thumbdown:

 

Im really disappointed by this Q3 of 2012 that, i've lost RS.3650/- from my pocket really and there is no worth for it.

 

Please don't suggest others to buy nokia BH-505..!

Re: BH-505 Problem

I bought a BH 505 for running, was fooled by the advert that said, 'sweat & splash resistant'. used it once only and the buttons won't work.  waited 3 months for nokia to repair before they finally replaced it with a new one.  used it for few more times and the same problems arised, plus, i couldnt even turn it off until it ran out of battery.  

 

very dissappointed with the nokia product.  it is not cheap & has got a reputable brand...but the performance is worst than a 'free' unbranded device that my son got from a supermarket purchase!  Will not buy any nokia products again.

Re: BH-505 Problem

Yet another unhappy customer. I have had the sweat issue this summer and never used them again. I am going to use the warranty on Monday, and will see how well or bad Nokia behaves. I bought sweat/splash resistant earpieces and I won't accept the same model once again as warranty.

Then I will decide if advicing Nokia to friends and family or to discourage them from ever buying Nokia again.

 

Very disappointed, though.
