Bluespoon Digital Bluetooth headset
Quick Take: The tiny, beetlelike Bluespoon certainly has the most unusual design of any headset we've seen to date. We discovered, however, that that's not always a good thing. To put it on, you need to twist the headset until a small springlike appendage catches inside your ear. Unless you do it exactly right--which takes a few tries--the earpiece digs uncomfortably against your ear canal. The buttons were tiny as well, and it fits only in your right ear. You do, however, get a choice of colors.
But once you get it on correctly, audio quality is good, with great volume and clarity. We tested the headset on the Nokia 6820, the , and the Sony Ericsson T616. Volume was impressive, producing clear conversations on both ends. Battery life also was superior. Bluespoon promises a talk time of 6 hours and a standby time of 8.2 days. In our tests, we fell short of the rated standby time by just a couple of hours.
