5.0 out of 5 stars easy to use and very functional 2 Nov 2010
By Deee Lovely - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is my first bluetooth phone product and I am quite pleased. It was quick and easy to set up and there are only a few buttons (they are large) so it's very easy to use while driving without being distracted.

You clip this to your visor and once it's turned on, it should sync with your phone (assuming you've done the initial phone setup). To answer a call, you press the big button in the middle (disconnect the call the same way). There is also a handy volume control wheel. It was pretty clear for me as well as the people on the other end of the line. I've talked to many people with bluetooth speaker phones in their cars and almost always I will hear the echo of my own voice (annoying)...this does not do that, clear as a bell! You can also do voice dialing to make it even more hands free.

It uses an internal rechargeable battery and comes with a usb to micro usb cable to do that, as well as a car plug with a usb slot so you can charge on the go. An added bonus is that the plug can also be used to charge any other usb device in your car. You can also use this as a small external speaker, I like to use it with my phone's navigation system so that I can listen to music on my car speakers and hear the navigation directions when I need to. Love it!

3.0 out of 5 stars I've always loved plantronics, but amazon also sells blue ant 28 Oct 2010
By HMMWV - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
On my business phone, I have a plantronics headset and amplifier. People hear me loud and clear.

In the state of California you may not talk on the cellular phone (oh thank you) while driving, hence numerous bt speakerphones are popping up like weeds. I bought the blue ant from amazon a while back and in my vine review they asked me to look at the plantronics. Each has strengths and weaknesses.

The blueant is clearly the winner here - it just sounds better, and in fact, being an audio snob, I do not detect the blue ant as being a speakerphone when it is used. Everything sounds normal. BUT there is a big piece missing - the blue ant is geared towards the newer i-phone / g-phone devices and leaves out the older designs by motorola with metal cases and ease of use. The good part is that the audio quality is SOO good with the ant that you can actually speak to your phone and have it understand you - my plantronics earpiece couldn't be recognized by my older phones!

Now plantronics has entered the world of visor clip, cig charger speakerphones. They did some neat things - like having two microphones. While I guess that is meant to improve the performance, sadly it doesn't. The plantronics speakerphone sounds like a speakerphone, and not holding the phone to your ear despite all their magic dsp technology. I was enthused that a company like plantronics would "get it right the first time" but it's a speakerphone - no doubt.

It does have some features to access your telephone (again, i/g phone) directory quickly which seem to work, and it does have some neat features if your phone is dictating directions to you - you can press a button and listen to them on an unused FM station in the car. Unfortunately - by the time the phone synthesizes the voice, puts it over bluetooth 2.1, then the plantronics modulates it over FM - well - you know the rest of the story - it doesn't sound as good as using the speakerphone inside your phone itself. It's just LOUDER.

I own probably close to 6 BT devices and none of them live up to their reputation of being a crystal clear perfect audio link. As for that - the latest version of the ant comes the closest because I don't yell at people using it that they are being cut off by the windshield wipers, etc. I lament that the BT standard does not give us the quality we asked for in its creation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Hands-Free Cell Phone Solution 27 Oct 2010
By A Gamer at Heart - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have used two different Blue tooth headsets with my cell phone, plus a wired set. Each solution for hands-free cell phone use had it's pros and cons. The wired set was easy to connect but the wires were cumbersome and distracting. The Blue Tooth sets eliminated the wires, but charging was a pain, and I have always had mixed results with maintaining a solid connection.

With that history, I was a bit wary about whether this Plantronics speakerphone would really offer any value. I like that I can charge it with my computer, or in the car, with the same cable. (The USB dongle plugs into the car lighter adapter just like my Itouch charger, into a USB port on your computer.) It took only two hours to charge via the USB cable and my computer. You simply clip the unit to your visor. It slips on and off quite easily. Pairing was the easiest I have found yet with any Blue Tooth product. You push the multi-function button on the speakerphone to turn it on. You turn on your cell and search for Blue Tooth devices. My cell phone immediately detected the speakerphone and boom, I was paired and ready to go. You can adjust the volume and make and receive calls through the speakerphone itself, or switch to FM mode with one button press, and use your stereo speakers instead. Since the unit talks, it even tells you what FM station/frequency you should turn to. Or, of course you can change the frequency.

The speaking function of the unit is what I like better than my headsets. It tells me when it turns on, it tells me when it has automatically paired with my phone when I turn it back on, and it tells me it is turning off when I shut it down. All functions are handled through one big button in the middle of the unit. With the voice confirmations, I always get confirmation of the desired action (on, off, pairing) without having to read my cell phone screen to check pairing or check the power light to see if the unit is on or off. The charge will last longer if you turn the unit off when you exit the car, but it shuts down automatically if you haven't made a call in 90 minutes. But in any event, you could leave the charging cord in the car and charge in the car without ever having to take the unit out of the car, which is a great option.

Call quality is great. I use this in California, where hands-free cell phone use while driving is the law. I use this speakerphone all the time and no one has ever asked or even detected that I am using a speakerphone. The unit also allows me to push the button and terminate the call, and of course the unit talks and confirms that the call has ended.

The Plantronics also allows the option for voice dialing through your cell phone, but since I have had very mixed results with voice recognition with my cell phone I haven't really tried it through this speakerphone.

I am quite happy with this unit because I like it better than my Blue Tooth headsets. I am not a guy to walk around with a bluetooth earpiece, so the lack of Blue Tooth functionality when I am outside my car isn't really a problem.

If you would prefer a hands-free solution that is easy as pie to use and doesn't require an earpiece, I think you will be pleased with this speakerphone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, niche product 26 Oct 2010
By P. Lio - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have struggled with Bluetooth as a technology in my life over the past few years. On one hand, I feel that the headsets are practically ubiquitous, seen attached to the ears of millions of people, from teens to adults. Yet, when I have used the headsets, I find them cumbersome for the following reasons:
A) It's yet another thing I have to charge and make sure it is charged
B) It's yet another thing to carry and possibly lose
C) I have had mixed experiences with the headsets on both transmitting and receiving ends; sometimes the connection is wonky. This, combined with less-than-stellar cellular connections makes for maddening frustration. Is it the cell phone? Is it the bluetooth headset? I don't know!
D) Though some are comfortable to wear, I just don't like to wear them all the time in my ear. Thus, I am constantly fumbling around to find it when the phone rings, sometimes while driving, which frankly may be more dangerous than just talking on the phone while driving.

What I love about this product is that it solves a BUNCH of these issues in an elegant way.

A) By living in the car, having a much bigger battery, and having an elegant car charger right there, charging is no longer an issue. (The trade off is that it is more limited to the car, perhaps, but not totally so: the charger is also USB compatible so any computer should do as well!)

B)Since I leave it in the car, nothing to lose, nothing to forget! (Trade off: I can't really use it while walking around... but for me that's okay)

C) The connection on this unit has been rock solid. The audio is very good, all things considered, but that is why I remove one star. I think that it is probably hard to get this PERFECT, given the nature of the device, the highly-variable environment inside of different cars, etc., but I think that it could even be better in the future. For me, the output is clear but has a bit of a tinny quality that can make voices a bit harder to hear in the car environment. (Note: I have not paired it with an FM station--this is just the speaker of the unit I am referring to; I am sure this will be better and I will give that a try, but I want to mention this as well.). The microphone and echo-cancelling seems absolutely top-notch.

D) I absolutely love that it lives on my visor and is only a button-push away, with an easy, beautifully tactile volume control. The ergonomics are stellar here!

I want to add that this is a very featured unit that also has a2dp which can allow use with a computer or an iPad as well, though the speakerphone nature of this makes it a little less useful for such a purpose. (That is to say, a headset/headphone setup gives you privacy and quiet while this is just another speaker and mic that are wireless.)

In sum, this is an excellent device for folks who want a convenient hands-free setup in the car, has very good audio, exemplary ergonomics and solves a number of problems endemic to headsets. Highly Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great unit but you can't hear the ringer 2 Nov 2010
By Max Too - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a great unit - call quality is great, controls are easy to use, etc. The FM feature is so-so because of so much external interference - perhaps it's just my car or where I live but I get a lot of static or other radio stations coming in. However, the speakerphone works great.

The only real problem I have is that the ringer volume is set very low and there is no volume control for it. When someone calls, you can't hear the ringer through the Bluetooth. You have to hear the ringer directly from your phone so remember to turn on the ringer in your phone (mine is usually on vibrate). I assume this is something they can fix in the future.

If you don't care about the ringer then this is a great unit for you.
