DSP Bluetooth Car Kit Review

Keep Your Hands on the Wheel

by Chuck Arehart

DSP Bluetooth Car Kit
Common sense dictates that the best way to use a cell phone while driving is with a hands-free device. While headsets are convenient, they aren’t useful if another person in the car needs to be in on the conversation. Most cell phones have a speakerphone function, but it may not be loud enough for those en route calls.

The DSP Bluetooth hands-free wireless speaker accessory may be the answer. After quickly connecting it to your phone, this hands-free speaker device has adjustable volume and caller ID. The included clip is fitted with an adjustable bracket made to fit a sun visor, easing accessibility. A swivel microphone further enhances voice pickup. The device also features answer and hang-up functions, mute, voice dialing, 20-call memory and call transfer.

The self-contained battery can be recharged with the included car or household charger. Sound quality is very good but callers are likely to hear background noise from your car, depending on noise level. The well-designed unit works pretty well and offers a lot, considering the $99.95 price tag.

Price: $99.95
