Despite the popularity of expensive and brand-name Bluetooth headsets, there's still a place for newcomers to the Bluetooth headset space. A master distributor for LG accessories in the United States, MegaAccy is one such company that's selling Bluetooth headsets under its own branding. The MegaAccy M1311, for example, is an inexpensive headset that is simple to use and easy to wear. All that, and it's only $49. However, its call quality wasn't so good, so you might want to consider getting something with a little better sound.

The Good

The MegaAccy M1311 is a simple, lightweight, and inexpensive Bluetooth headset that fits comfortably around the ear. It's also easy to use.

The Bad

The MegaAccy M1311 fails where it matters most--call quality. While incoming sound quality was good, outgoing sound had too much fuzz.

The Bottom Line

The MegaAccy M1311 is an inexpensive and lightweight headset that will fit easily around your ear, but the call quality is mediocre.

One of the things that the MegaAccy M1311 may lack over its competitors is that it doesn't have much going in the design department. A rather generic-looking headset, the M1311 looks very similar to its predecessor, the M1300. Encased in black plastic, it has a long and tapered shape that measures about 1.98 inches long, 0.70 inch wide, and 0.47 inch deep; a small and lightweight design.

On the front of the M1311 are a square multifunction button and a tiny blue LED. The volume rocker is on the left spine while the charger jack is on the right. Both the button and the volume rocker are raised above the surface, making them tactile and easy to press, even when the headset is worn on the ear. On the back of the headset is an earpiece that has a rubberized ear cover for a better fit in the ear. There's also an ear hook that's thin and flexible, and it can be rotated to fit either ear. Though you can choose to remove the ear hook, we recommend keeping it on because the earpiece doesn't fit too deeply in the ear, and the hook provides much-needed security. The fit was quite comfortable overall and we can see ourselves wearing the headset for long periods of time without any problems.

We tested the headset with the T-Mobile Sidekick 3. We managed to pair the headset successfully without any problems, though the device name in the Bluetooth pairing list ended up being "M1312" instead of "M1311," which we found a little odd. Unfortunately, the call quality on the MegaAccy M1311 is like that of its predecessors--while we heard our callers just fine, they could not say the same about us. We even called ourselves on voice mail to check the quality, and it was true--our voice sounded fuzzy, and there was a lot of static and ambient noise. We tried making the same call without using the headset (just using the cell phone) to see if it was the phone reception that was the issue. There was no static at all, indicating that the headset was the problem, not the phone. The call quality on the MegaAccy M1311 just wasn't that good.

Features of the MegaAccy M1311 include the typical answering, ending, and rejecting calls features, plus last-number redial, voice-dial support, and the ability to transfer a call from the phone to the headset and vice versa. The MegaAccy M1311 has a rated talk time of up to 5 hours and a rated standby time of five days.
