Good earpiece, but very annoying and pointless magnetic charging cradle
on 8 July 2015
This is a very good earpiece. Having had previous planatronics models before this I like the new on/off switch, rather than a button, which is easier to use and shows clearly whether or not the device is turned on. Sound quality is also good and I have had no complaints from people I am talking to.
My only gripe though is that they have moved away from standard micro USB charging, to needing to use the magnetic charging cradle provided to plug into a charger. For me this is completely unnecessary and a backwards step. In my job I am often on the move, often using different vehicles. Now whereas before I had cheap standard micro USB chargers in various vehicles and around the home which I could just plug either my phone or the old earpiece into for a top up, now you cannot charge the earpiece unless you carry the tiny magnetic charging cradle around with you in your pocket to plug into your micro USB charger. This just makes it much less versatile and I cannot see why they have done it. This may not be a problem for some people, but it is very inconvenient for me and therefore it loses 2 stars.
