Tech Review: Hisense Mono Headset Mini HB200M

When Hisense Bluetooth was launched a month ago, I wasn't able to attend the launch due to my very hectic schedule!  Thanks to Cecille for sending me one for review!  Who's the best person to review such product?  The person who talks on the phone while driving!  Mr. AMW!

Mr. AMW helped me road tested this as we discussed about the functions of the said Hisense Mono Headset Mini HB200M.  I am amazed when he was talking with a normal voice and I was shouting : "Ha??? Who are you talking to? What??? I don't understand you!"  I kept on blabbling and later did  found out  that he was talking to someone over the phone using this new toy.
What's inside the box

AMW says (with the help of Mr. AMW)  ---

Pros
  • Includes good accessories like necklace (for people who would want to use this).
  • The size is just right, doesn't look too obvious.
  • Good battery life.
  • Clear sound, not choppy at all!
  • Interchangeable ear buds!  I appreciate it that they have smaller sized ear buds as I'm having a hard time with the big ones!  
  • Comfortable to be worn on the ear for long period of time.
  • Pairing between the bluetooth and various phones are quite easy!  Tested on Iphone, Blackberry and Nokia phones.
  • Range between the device and the phone can reach up to approximately 2-3 meters.  Which is good enough!
  • Can connect up to 2 phones at one time! 
Cons
  • Because of its size, can be easily misplaced!  Especially for guys as they don't use pouches like girls.
  • No bluetooth stereo streaming capability for this model, even MONO would have been good enough!
  • Voice command is not that perfect.
  • If the phone is paired with the bluetooth, you cannot answer the call directly from your phone.
  • No battery life indicator.
Overall
Highly recommended by Mr. AMW especially to those who loves to talk on the phone for hours!  Driving is safer too with this around!
Again, this would be perfect if it has a simple streaming feature!

Tips
  • Carry your charger with you as much as possible just in case it loses its battery life.
  • Blackberry users:  voice control is best out of all the phones tested (as mentioned above).  Lucky you!
  • Iphone users: voice control is also good.  Additional voice control over music playing.
  • Nokia users: voice control is fair.  Only the basic voice control can be done like CALL.
  • Try to keep this close to your phone so you can easily reach out for this anytime you need it.
Will I repurchase?
Maybe, for myself!  But for now, Mr. AMW and myself are sharing.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Busybees who need to talk on the phone for long period of time.  While driving, jogging or at work that demands multi-tasking.  Best if you are on an "Unlimited calls" phone plan, no more hot phone next to the ear or switching your phone from left to right!

Where to purchase and how much?
At Digital Hub, Digital Walker, Astrovision, ROX, Switch, iStudio, Odyssey and Power MAC Center for Php1,950.00 (approx $46.00).


Included are ---
  1. USB AC Charger and USB Charging Cable
  2. Flexible Ear Hook
  3. Necklace
  4. Magnetic Clip
  5. Mini Headset
  6. 3 Ear Bud Sizes and In-ear Bud
I am not a nagger wife but when it comes to using the phone while driving, I turn into an "Angry Bird" as safety is very important to me especially to someone I love!  With the Hisense Mono Headset Mini HB200M, and with Mr. AMW impressed with the said product and found himself using it a lot!  I can breathe a sigh of relief!  If only I can pry him away from texting while driving!  Hisense...is there such voice control? *teeeheee*

Where else would you use a handsfree bluetooth?
I'll probably use this while cooking or doing nail art!  

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
