We popped the Freeway onto the sun visor of a 2011 BMW M3. The speakerphone takes up a lot of surface area, but its low-profile design means that after a few moments you'll likely forget that it's there.

We spent a good deal of time with the Freeway in this odd orientation: clipped to the edge of our 17-inch laptop monitor. Its sound quality for human voices was fantastic (better even than the laptop's internal speakers), so we ended up using it to listen to quite a few podcasts.

We'd gladly trade a few square inches of real estate on our sun visor for the fantastic audio quality that the Jabra Freeway provides. Check out the full review for more details.
