First Look: SoundID SM100 Bluetooth headset

1:24 /

The SoundID SM100 Bluetooth headset is excellent, with above-average performance.

[ music ] ^M00:00:02 >> I'm Nicole [inaudible], associate editor for CNET.com, and this is the [inaudible] SM100 [inaudible] headset. It is a pretty small headset, but even though it is pretty small it has a lot of features in it. There's the multifunction button on the front, there's also the volume controls, and a personalized mode button. What this does is that it toggles through three different clarity modes, from the, the lowest clarity to the highest clarity. There's also an environmental sound mode. What this does is it enhances the sound around you while you're wearing the headset. Because usually when you wear a headset, you can't hear the person in front of you very well. When the environmental mode is activated, you can actually still wear the headset while communicating with someone in front of you, as well as answer calls when you need to. But the downside is that it does amplify surrounding sounds, so there's a very loud buzzing in the background. Plus when the environmental mode is turned on, it drains battery life too. On the back here you get a pretty comfortable earpiece. What it does is it results in a very deeper, secure fit. You can also adjust it to your right or left ear. So overall we thought it was a pretty good headset. I mean sound quality was amazing, performance was really good. [ background music ] We just felt that the price was a little high at a hundred twenty nine dollars. My name is Nicole [inaudible] and this has been the Sound ID SM100. ^M00:01:21 [ music ]
