I love my cell phone. It's with me constantly and some might say that I'm even a little bit addicted to it. But there is one thing about “old school” phones that I miss. You can easily cradle a big-old handset between your ear and shoulder and carry on a “hands free” conversation. With the iPhone, and most other cell phones, that's almost impossible. I do it in a pinch, but trying to do it for more than a minute is extremely uncomfortable and I have dropped my phone many times while trying to do it.
So, the only real option is TRUE hands free and that's what the Jabra EXTREME2 offers, along with a bundle of advanced features. Its dual microphone system reduces background noise and maintains the natural sound of your voice. Then it goes one step further by using HD Voice ready technology. Things are made easier with Automatic Volume control that instantly adjusts the headset’s volume to best suit your environment. Another helpful feature is Voice Guidance, which gives you spoken updates on the headset’s battery level, connection status, and Caller ID.
I recently received a Jabra EXTREME2 to test out and I'm loving it. It was super easy to set up. It took literally less than 10 seconds to get it connected with my iPhone. Plus, it gives you the option of connecting with more than one device, so I also connected it to my handheld computer scanner that I use when I'm out scouting. It's so nice to be able to use just one bluetooth for both devices!
The sound I get from the EXTREME2 is excellent and I also like that it is so comfortable to wear. Maybe my ears are just sensitive, but I have used a lot of different bluetooth headsets and they often bother my ears. This one gives you the choice of two different wearing styles. You can either use the earhook, which adjusts for the left or right ear, or you can wear it without the earhook and just use the Ultimate Comfort Eargels™ to keep it in your ear. (By the way – it is really hard to take a self portrait of your own ear!!)
