Parrot Minikit+

The Good The Parrot Minikit+ offers hands-free calling and A2DP audio streaming. It automatically downloads the phone book off a paired phone, enabling voice dialing of any stored contact. The noise- and echo-reducing microphone ensures clear calls.

The Bad Speaker quality is passably good, but could stand a bit of improvement.

The Bottom Line The Parrot Minikit+ makes good use of its voice controls and excellent microphone to deliver clear calls and a safer driving experience.

Parrot Minikit+

If the product above looks familiar, don't be surprised. The Parrot Minikit+ shares not only a design but also its name with the previously reviewed Parrot Minikit Slim. I was a bit nonplussed about what the suffix change from Slim to + meant, but it turns out that Parrot has made incremental changes across the board to the Minikit's already great performance.

Design
Where design is concerned, the Minikit+ doesn't differ considerably from the original Minikit Slim. Its dimensions are roughly the same: 2.4 inches wide, 4.3 inches long, and about 1.1 inches deep at its thickest end. The device is now all black, versus black and silver, but the business end of the unit is still home to the same control knob flanked by call accept and end buttons.

The rest of the unit's user-facing surface is dominated by a flat panel speaker, which is loud and clear for the portion of the audible spectrum that the average human voice lives in, but is probably too tinny and distorted to be called "enjoyable." Then again, just because the Minikit+ can play music doesn't mean that it was designed for or should be used for such a thing.
