Of some stupid reason all of my contacts on my old iPhone was not synched to my computer or iCloud but of course I backed up the old iPhone before wiping it so I had a new backup. With iExplorer (http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/) I could easily extract my contacts from the backup and sync them to my new iPhone and iCloud! Thanks Macroplat for a great product!

I wanted a set of wireless headphones for work which where Bluetooth capable (to connect to my iPhone) to listen to music when working in an open landscape, which I find distracting when people are talking all around.
The mic. allows for handling calls without having to switch headsets.
Quite light with a nice build feel to them eventhough they are a bit “plastic”.
Good Bluetooth performance, no problems connecting/reconnecting to the iPhone.
The not soo good:
The builtin equalizer presets does not apply when listening to music over Bluetooth.
No Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP), which means you have to fiddle with the phone to change tracks, pause/play and not through controls on the headset.
Audio leakage, I find that they leak fairly much risking to disturb your landscape neighbours.
Sometimes there are some initial audio drop-outs which seem to be Bluetooth connection “stabilizing”, but after a few seconds it is up and running and there are no further problems.
No re-chargable batteries.
The PX5 is clearly marketed as “Gamer Headsets”, for which I think alot of my issues are non-issues. In retrospect the PX5 was not perfectly suited for my use-case.
The most amazing thing just happened, last year I bought the very nice Etymotic HF3 headphones, excellent sound and good features, only one downside, they broke… That is usually a major hazzle, so I have been procastinating about it for a while, but yesterday I finally decided to take the bull by the horns and I called Apple. After three minutes (literally), it was settled. Some minutes later I got a mail with the return number for the old headphones. Today my replacement headphones arrived!! Amazing, the replacements are here the day after I reported it!! If this is representative for their customer care, I understand why Apple is rocketing past M$!!
An interesting and commendable note is that the important thing for them was not to get the broken ones back and then send me a new pair, the most important was to get me the the replacements and then worry about getting the broken ones back! Thats the way to get returning customers!
