I own these. They suck, just use Google translate. The translation is really poor, the software picks up random words. They should never have shipped it in such a poor state of incompletion.

Még nem teljesen tökéletes, mert nem fordít le minden európai nyelvet. Például azt a nyelvet sem amin ezt a bejegyzést írtam. :D

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid I was, investing in this about a year ago. Completely useless since it needs a phone - it's nothing but a bluetooth headset... This is basically a scam. Besides this I will have to pay a extra toll fee just to get it delivered to me. I learned my lesson...

People cracking jokes and bashing this are stupid. This is the first big thing to hit the market. The first car was shit, the same for the first smart phone, laptop, and plane. Give it 5-10yrs or so and translators will be in big trouble.

It really looks like they were speaking more into the phone when they apparently didn't need to.

My only real problem with them so far that I have seen is you have to give the person you want to converse with an ear bud. I don't think a great many of us would except a ear bud from some stranger and stick it in our ears. Now if the person has their own and you could quickly pair that up with the phone you have so the phone works with both sets that would be good. Or perhaps better yet an app is on both phones and you can connect them with either a normal call or by blue tooth. I just don't think I would want to stick something in my ear a stranger gives to me.

If I am wearing my earbud in the USA speaking English, can someone in South America speaking Spanish wear an earbud and talk to me with each language being translated if we are talking on a speaker phone? REPLY
Krammer Dezső (3 months ago)
Please refraze your question so that we here in South America can translate it into Spanish! xD

It's a observation that it often won't translate foreign words. Like if you said "I had sushi" you'd get something like "I had suzie". You'd probably have to say "I had raw fish" which would be a bit crazy if you were translating into Japanese.

Haha what’s happening. Are people this lazy? Why not just learn to speak another language because we all know translation software isn’t accurate. And if I’m at a party full of Chinese speakers I’ll be very happy I invested my time to learning Chinese because it’s rude to make someone go out of their way and use an ear phone.

Considering how different the Chinese dialects are I'm guessing it will not work out that well unless you are in Beijing.

This is wonderful! I have a dilemma wherein I have found an unknown relative in Europe, we communicate via online translation, but I want to go to Europe to meet the family and the problem is - How do we translate when face to face? I thought of continue the online translator, but sort of cumbersome having to type each interaction - hire a translator...could be expensive & challenging. These earbuds may just be my answer! Luckily the family speaks both German and Italian (and very little English). I wonder if my U.S. phone and app would have any difficulty being used in Europe and would I need to do anything special for that...?

Dude doesn't even get that the pace of technology development will pick up speed and advance soooooo fast that it won't be anywhere nearrrrrrrrr decades before this technology can replace translators. I give it TEN years, MAX. Smh... Whyyyyy do Iiiiii know that, and this guy doesn't??? It's hiszzzzz thing!

As a French and Spanish translator, I can tell you what this thing cannot translate.....................intonations, contexts and idiomatic expressions. It is only meant to translate words. ¡Punto final!

My Q is, why is there a need to purchase a said earbud product when it seems to be paired/translated via translator in phone? a phone already has a microphone.
Chiming Lam (11 months ago)
This is to provide free conversation between two parties even when they are walking side by side etc. etc. However, you don't need to buy the earbud if you only ask for some information from foreigner when you are travelling overseas. You just need to read the translation in your phone when the foreigner tell you something through the microphone in your phone.
earthcry it is supposed to pick up everything without you taking out the phone and it will keep the microphone on sleep mode until it hears something which is better than pressing the microphone button everytime you wanna say something
