Motorola Bluetooth Speaker, Jawbone and Nokia Headsets »



In light of the California state law that makes it manditory to own hands-free devices, we look at some of the best in Bluetooth technology, including offerings from Motorola, Jawbone and Nokia.

Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.


Motorola Bluetooth Speaker

What You Need to Know

  • It gets the job done
  • The subtle gray color helps it blend in
  • Big buttons make it easy to use
  • It clips on to your visor, and doesn't slide off; it may seem like it's too far away to carry on a conversation comfortably, but that never really becomes a problem
  • Talks to you and tells you what FM frequencies are open, and interrupts music so you can take calls while playing music
  • Also tells you what phone number is calling
  • Has enough range so there isn't much static on your radio

Jawbone

What You Need to Know

  • Good for the most part
  • The setup and pairing were a pain because of the buttons
  • They're hidden on the headset, so this contributes to a nice design, but you are always accidentally pressing them, or you don't know if you're pushing the right ones
  • The LED is inconspicuous
  • The noise assassin button made a noticeable difference in call quality
  • It didn't have the best audio of what we tested, but it easily made for the most audible calls

 
Overall Rating

  • 88%

 

Nokia Headset

  • The screen makes everything easier
  • It tells you what steps to take to pair
  • If you have a Nokia phone like the N95 it will sync with your recent and missed calls so you can make calls directly from the headset
  • It also gives you a lot of other indicators like battery, time stamps, and unread messages
  • Sound quality wise it was the best of the three we reviewed
  • It's an all around great device, but it does look sort of large in your ear
