As the master distributor for LG accessories in the United States, MegaAccy is also attempting to sell its own self-branded Bluetooth headsets here, such as the MegaAccy M1300. A simple, no-frills Bluetooth headset, the M1300 still gets the job done despite mediocre call quality. It's a steal at only $59.
The MegaAccy M1300 looks like a generic Bluetooth headset on the surface: small, black, and a little boxy. Encased in a lightweight plastic, the M1300 measures only 0.7 inch by 1.8 inches by 0.5 inch and weighs less than an ounce. Because it is so small, it appears very inconspicuous when worn, which we really appreciate. The M1300's simple design boasts a rectangular multifunction button in its center, a blue indicator light below it, and volume buttons on the right spine. While the multifunction button is tactile and easy to press, the volume buttons are rather tiny and feel a little too squishy for our taste.
On the back is the earpiece, with a rubberized earbud cover. Because the headset fits neatly into the ear canal, there is no need for an ear hook to keep it in place. It actually feels very secure when worn, and we had it on for several hours without much discomfort. You can also wear it on either ear without a noticeable difference. We would've appreciated an array of different earbud covers with the headset however, for better customization.
We tested the headset with the T-Mobile Sidekick 3 and the Helio Heat. While we paired the headset successfully with both devices, it bears mentioning that the M1300's pairing process is slightly different from that of other headsets. Instead of holding down the multifunction key to start the pairing process, you have to press the volume-up key until the indicator light stays blue. Call quality was average. While we could hear our callers just fine, they had to strain to hear us--they reported a lot of static and ambient noise when we were speaking. Features of the Bluetooth headset include answering, ending, and rejecting calls; last number redial; voice dial support; and the ability to transfer a call from the phone to the headset and vice versa. The MegaAccy M1300 has a rated talk time of 6 hours and a rated standby time of 7 days.
