Jabra Freeway review: The speakerphone for audiophiles

If you find yourself straining to hear calls on your current hands-free setup or just want the best sound possible for calls or podcasts, the Jabra Freeway is the Bluetooth speakerphone for you.

Admittedly, there's a bit of embellishment in that headline. The Jabra Freeway is good, but perhaps not truly audiophile-quality. However, as visor-mount Bluetooth speakerphones go, the Jabra Freeway's audio quality is among the best that we've tested.

The Freeway is also one of the largest visor-mount Bluetooth speakerphones we've tested, but that's because in order to provide the big sound it does, the Freeway packs three speakers behind its fabric grille. The result is a stereo speakerphone that's good enough for listening to certain genres of music and sound that's full enough to hear over the din of road and wind noise present in a moving vehicle.

Obviously, the fidelity bottleneck will be your phone and your carrier's call quality, but if you want the best sound quality that you can get from your speakerphone--perhaps you'd like to occasionally use it to stream audio podcasts aloud--you'll definitely want to check out our full review of the Jabra Freeway in-car Bluetooth speakerphone .
