When first presented with the opportunity to review a Bluetooth headset, at first I wasn’t sure how to approach it as – to be honest – I’m not a big fan. I tend to feel like there is a spotlight on me when using one as if to say, “Hey, look at Mr. Bigshot with the Bluetooth headset.” I basically feel very conspicuous.
Well – that is DEFINITELY not the case with this little number from ECO Sound Engineering. It is extremely lightweight – only 6.4g in weight and diminutive in size. It came with an earpiece, but because it was so small, I had no problem just placing it in my ear without having any fear of it falling out. It felt very secure and comfortable.
This model – the ECO V268, is very spartan – with only a multi-function button allowing you to:
- Call and Answer
- Hang Up
- Redial last number called
… as well as 2 subtle rocker buttons allowing you to adjust the volume on the headset. There is one input for the AC charger as well.
The people that I had called, while able to tell I was on a headset, were able to understand me no problem, and so long as I didn’t roam too far away from my phone (which is understandable) – call quality was more than adequate. I was able to hear no problem as well.
Now you may be wondering as to the price? Here’s the kicker – this little number, complete with ear piece, AC adapter, users manual will run you approximately $9.95. and you can purchase directly here
I kid you not. You cannot go wrong with this model headset. So I would suggest, pick up a couple of these as gifts – you don’t need to let anyone know how much they cost. Heck – pick one up for yourself. You’ll be amazed. This little gadget changed my attitude about Bluetooth headsets.
