as possible. I've tried two different Bluetooth devices, and they were both terrible.
First, I bought this
Motorola T505 in-car speakerphone. It got great reviews on Amazon, but I found it to be hard to use. The buttons are awkwardly placed, it takes a long time to power-up, the sound quality isn't very good, and I hate fighting with the thing when I hear a call coming in. What's also annoying is that the device has incredible range, so when I forget to turn it off at the end of my car trip (which I often do), my phone continues to be connected to it when I'm inside my house.
Recently, I bought these GOgroove AirBand Bluetooth Stereo Headphones
. The sound quality is significantly better than the Motorola speakerphone, but they share many of the other problems: the headphones are very
slow to turn on (you have to press-and-hold the power button for an inordinately long amount of time), they often don't pair automatically with my phone, and I fear for my own life (and the lives of other drivers) when I have to fumble with them inside the car. I've given up on using them.
My car is old, has air leaks that make whistling noises, and is generally noisy inside the cabin. The speakerphone in my iPhone doesn't work well for me, and I need some sort of external device.
Any recommendations for something that is simple
to use and has decent sound quality? It doesn't even have to be wireless: I can deal with wired headphones, if necessary.
