Pros:Life became easier, simple to use
Cons:Takes awhile to set up & get used to!
The Bottom Line: This is lightweight, communications are great, and life just became that much easier!
As a busy mom, daycare provider and ebay enthusiast, I always need to be in communication, and also have my hands free! In this day and age where phone numbers are stored in cell phones, and email addresses are locked into the computer, and your speed dial is activated by a password, and your calendar is in your PDA which is at your office and you are at home, you need the ultimate hand-holding system of wireless BLUETOOTH which is the fastest growing technology to date. What it basically is, at your fingertips and through this system, you can have all of your numbers, passwords, files communicating on one system, so that if you are in a jam, you can have access to your information immediately, by having your cell phone "talk" to your computer and vice versa. This headset that is powered and created to use bluetooth, allows you to go from your phone at home or office to your bluetooth mobile phone. It comes handy with it's own charger base, which you will have to recharge after about 6 hours of talk time. You can switch it back over to your phone when not in use! When using this, either in the car (helping you drive safely, and added plus), or looking through files in your office, or have your hands full around the house, you can walk about 33 feet from the bluetooth voyager without interference. The headset sits over your ear comfortably, with a soft rubber that winds over and around your head, very subtle, and the talk piece is very micro, lightweight and stays firm in one place, so even if you are moving around, it doesn't fall from your ear, or away from your mouth (imagine if you were using your ear the old fashioned way, with your head bent down, holding a phone between your chin and your shoulder, moving and falling each time you lifted your head while doing a pile of laundry at the same time!) This is very simple to use, if you are afraid of technology as I once was! You have 6 hours of talk time, and with it's Windsmart Technology, it eliminates the static and interference from windy days. It is voice activated and can remember your numbers once you program the names with the numbers using your own voice.

The microphone is awesome. It is adjustable, and you can wear the device in either ear, as the mic swivels around. This has helped me immensely in my daily life, and allows me to work from home, and when school comes up in January, I will be able to get alot more done to have time to spare for studies. It does take awhile to get used to, seeing as most people have been raised on rotary, cordless and cell phone usage. To go into feeling like a professional overnight can be a culture shock. But it is amazing how simplified your life becomes! This makes a great gift for business owners, people who travel, those who have their hands full between work, home & school, college kids, work at home moms, independent consultants, and more!
