I recognise this, I very nearly bought one a while ago. I had a "play" with one, and I priced it up, and it was a lot more expensive then. I am surprised nobody has done a review yet, but as Ciao has allowed anyone to do just that, ever since they were introduced in 2005, so I will oblige.Let me just tell you exactly what this kit does.
I do realise that a lot of bluetooth headsets are replacing this type of kit nowadays, and they are very clear, but these kits do have their merits. The speaker is mounted wherever you want it, and so the sound comes equally to both ears, unlike the bluetooth that goes in one ear only.The microphone is equally good, being able to pick up sound of very good quality. The kit is always there, ready for use, with no fiddling about trying to insert plastic probes in your ear, while also attempting to hook your ear with a loop of sharp plastic. All with your wrong hand of course, while under pressure to answer that all important call. Another boon, is that it will never run out of battery power at that critical moment.
This well packaged kit comes with comprehensive instructions, and a one year guarantee. One small snag, is that this equipment requires the use of an external antenna. Other than this, I can recommend it.
The kit is fitted with an automatic radio mute function, meaning it mutes the radio, CD, or tape player whenever a call comes in.
You can find these kit for less than Fifty Pounds nowadays, which compares with some bluetooth headsets. They used to be fitted to "Repmobiles" as standard, by the likes of Vauxhall.
All in all, a very good piece of kit, and safe too. I can recommend them, and if you think I am living in the past - I bet you Thirty Bob I am not!
