In his ear piece in a mouthpiece for making calls he compared to Bluetooth headset and wired stereo head that comes included. Call quality is pretty good Q which is probably helped by the fact that the earpiece and -- migrant actually position by ear and mouth.

On the back you have the speaker and removable cover that can kill the battery sim card and included sixteen gigabyte micro SD card.
