The Bottom Line: A great product that delivers a sleek style and excellent functionality. A must have for those who live on their cell phones.
I have a pretty busy life (don't we all?) I have a Blackberry 8700C which I use a lot for both work and personal calls. The plan I have is nationwide through Sprint. I love my Blackberry, it gets great reception, is convenient to use and fits neatly in my pocket. However, using the wire ear piece was troublesome. The wire was hard to store in my purse, I did not like wrapping it around the Blackberry and the microphone kept rubbing across my shirts making terrible background noises. I live in LA and in 2008, it will be illegal to drive while using a hand held device.
I researched which Bluetooth device would be suitable. Over and over again I read about the Samsung WEP200. Consumer Reports did a nice piece, my tech support folks at work recommended it, the price was certainly right. I took the plunge and ordered off Amazon.
Here are the tech details:
Kit includes Headset, Travel Adapter, User Manual
Up to 4 hours talk time and 40 hours standby time
Weighs 9 grams
Smallest and lightest headset on the market today
Headset controls for last number redial, call hold, and call rejection
This earpiece is minimalist and black, small, lightweight only 9 ounces) and very comfortable to wear. I have had other earpiece devices but they always hurt my ear, thus limiting my use. This model fits perfectly into my ear and I don't even notice it.
To turn on, I press the earpiece for approximately 5 seconds, wait for the blue light and make my call. I usually have my Blackberry in my pocket. The reception is powerful, clear and the volume can be easily adjusted. Background noise is not a problem and most people I talk to have no idea I am talking with a wireless headset.
Charging is a snap, it comes with a nice tiny foam filled case and you plug it up. It takes a short while to charge, and while charging you see the red light. When the charge is full, you see the blue light. The charge gives you 4 hours of talk time. The set up is easy and I was talking as soon as I charged it up. It's also very easy to know when the earpiece is "on" as the blue light comes on as well as the blue light on my Blackberry.
I am very pleased! Highly recommend.
