First Look: Kyocera Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset with Pendant Controller

1:17 /

The Kyocera Wireless Stereo Bluetooth Headset with Pendant Controller has admirable sound quality and tactile controls, but a few design flaws make it far from perfect.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> I'm Nicole Lee associate editor for CNET.com and this is the Kyocera Bluetooth headset with pendant controller. As the name suggests it does have a pretty neat pendant controller here as you can see it has a cool toggle switch in the middle that you can use to change the volume or change music tracks. You can also press it to make, answer or receive phone calls even. And on the side here is a whole switch and on the back is a clip. As you mentioned this Kyocera Bluetooth headset controller here can be paired with any stereo Bluetooth enabled phone or music player so you can stream your music and your phone calls. As you can see it's attached to this lanyard here and the lanyard in turn is attached to these two ear buds. So, what you do is you hang it over your neck and just sort of let this hang down around your neck if you wish. Call quality was actually pretty good I probably wouldn't rely on it as a replacement fro your music player, but it's pretty good for on the go purposes. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Kyocera . ^M00:01:04 [ Music ]
