a great product that I would buy again without hesitation.

This is a great product that was bought for me as a gift by my wife. Although I've not used any other Bluetooth hands free kits, what I like about this one is that thought has obviously been put into design and usability - it is easy to use and works well. Also the sound quality is great and the battery lasts for ages!
The item has a clip on the back for you to attach it to the sun visor in your car - meaning it doesn't get in the way but it's easy to reach and is close to your head for the microphone and speakers. The only possible downside to this I guess would be if you needed to use the sun visor whilst using the hands free (which I haven't needed to), but I guess you could probably quickly pull it off and clip it on the other way round without too much fuss.
The instructions take you through how to pair it to your phone, and I found following the instructions easy and the pairing worked first time just fine. The device has three buttons: volume up, volume down, and the 'everything' button (the larger round one). If you long-press the everything button it will turn the device on or off (if you forget to turn it off I think it does it anyway after a short time), and if you have bluetooth already activated on your phone then on turning the device on it will pair automatically (provided you've already followed the instruction to pair it first time of course).
Once paired, a single press of the everything button should activate voice commands on your phone (if your phone supports that) so that you can tell your phone to ring certain contacts and/or numbers. This works well, the microphone picks up your voice well and the only limitation is really the usual with voice commands - your phone decoding what you are saying correctly. If someone calls you then single pressing the everything button will answer the call, and another single press will hang up. Sound quality is excellent, and in conversations my wife has reported not being able to tell I am using the hands free - I think there is a background noise cancellation that does a great job. The volume is more than enough as well.
Finally, it's packaged with a car charger with a cigarette lighter mount, but can also plug into any USB wall charger or directly into a computer which is versatile.
So overall a great product that I would buy again without hesitation.
