I bought this to use with my PC (as it says is possible) however it's not without an adaptor, and after spending half of the day on the web looking for said adaptor it seems impossible to find. I use Skype on my PC and thought this might be a good way to keep conversations to my ear instead of the PC speakers.
Tried it with my iPhone just to find a use for it (which isn't really the point in buying the thing as I was happy enough using my iPhone as it was intended and can't see me wanting to carry this thing around with me) and it wasn't particularly responsive to that either. Called our house phone and had to use the iPhone to hang up as the button didn't work.
Looks nice, gimmicky though and no good as a desk phone for the purpose I bought it for. Just another dust gatherer!
So this is a telephone for your mobile? It really is as simple as that.
You get a handset with a connect button & volume control. A curly lead to the base & a lead that fits into the headphone jack of your mobile.
It sounds clear, works very simply & while being cool in a retro sort of way also saves you frying your brain with every call you make. So how come 5 stars? Well for a start if you're into design then this is a beauty. The hollowed out handset & base give this a wonderfully futuristic look in a 1960's sci-fi film kind of way. You can buy the handset on it's own but frankly that's pretty pointless & spoils the whole 'classic' telephone chic going on here. It's also very comfortable to hold. The coloured inner of both pieces add individuality & avoids the bland i-everything look that all white plastic technology has now. Even the leads are colour co-ordinated and help make this stand out.
Lastly, and not least, for a chic piece of furniture that also works well this is reasonably priced, not cheap but there is a good solid feel of quality to this that makes it seem well priced.
A simple object that does a straightforward job without fuss while looking great & not costing too much. Job done surely?
I bought this as had been looking for something to make conversations more comfortable whilst using my mobile, as my ear does not fit those in-ear headsets. It feels real quality and works perfectly with my Samsung and my wife's iPhone (not at the same time!!). I use it in the office and will buy a 2nd one to use at home. The only thing that could be better was if it was wireless.
It plugs directly into the phone and is plug and play!! My wife can control the volume of the calls!!
The biggest benefit I find is that my mobile gets hot whilst I talk on it for a long time and with this device that now makes no difference. I can even charge the phone and use the screen whilst on my call something I couldn't do before! Perfect!!
Is simple idea, made well. I knew the brand having bought their DECT phone which uses the same design last year and I knew that worked well so had no fears about the quality when buying this piece.
My Daughter even pointed that it helps with health issues as well - no longer having the mobile planted right next to my head constantly must be a good things right!!
