Mike: You know, it is kind of funny when we were planning out this segment. I thought another Bluetooth headset, you know, what more can we say about Bluetooth headsets, but this one from Nokia really has some unique features.
Female: Yeah, this is the Nokia BH902. Once unique about it is it actually has an OLED screen so it’s got a full digital display right on the front of it and I haven’t seen that before in a Bluetooth headset. And it’s quite handy because it means that you don’t actually have to pull your cellphone out of your pocket or your purse or you bag when you’re looking at numbers. A lot of us with our Bluetooth headsets, we rely on the voice but that’s not always full proof, you know, there are times when you have to dig out your phone and punch in the number. While with this one, you can actually search through received calls, incoming calls, recently dialled numbers, missed calls and dial it right from using the screen their which is a huge benefit.
Mike: To me, that’s a huge plus like you are saying. I always keep my phone in my pocket. And again, every time somebody calls, you know, I want to see who it is before I answer it. Well now, I don’t have to do that. I can just plug this thing right off my ear and basically look right on the screen itself which is kind of nice thing. You can see it is fairly ergonomic as well as using the little kind of wire here and this is a nice feature. I found trying this out here for a day once I plugged it into my ear, it stayed on my ear. A lot of these cheaper plastic ones, they tend to fall off my ear because I got a weird ear or something. And see I can shake my head and this thing doesn’t because I shake my head all the time.
Female: Well, yeah I think it’s sometimes when you are just bouncing around or you're on the go, that can happen.
Mike: Punch in the head or—
Female: There's two times Bluetooth headsets, some of the ones that kind of fit right snug inside your ear and then the others that kind of sit outside your ear. This one is one that fits in. It is more of a speaker headphone. Now, the benefit to that is that you are going to get a superior sound quality and it is not going to—you are not going to pick as much noise in the area around you if you’ve got it plugged in there snugly. Another thing to mention about this one is it’s got about eight hours of talk time and about a 110 hours of standby time which is—and that’s pretty decent for a Bluetooth headset.
Mike: Kind of a standard thing that you look for. Another feature I like is the multiple paring so obviously you're going to pair it up with your blackberry or palm tree or phone and what have you. But I also use my laptop for example for—for Skype and our office has —system and I can pair it up with my laptop as well. And same thing I can see the calls coming in and I don’t have to look at on my laptop screen all the time which is—
Female: That’s great! And then if that wasn’t enough, you also get the clip. This is my favorite part though actually because what happens with is it just kind of plug—
Mike: You just like the accessories.
Female: I do, I love the accessories. Basically, I get to plug it on. We’re going to just attach it to Mike’s collar here, but what this means is—
Mike: Because that’s how I wear it.
Female: You can attach it to your bag or your purse or your clothing like Mike used to sport this.
Mike: Hello Ladies!
Female: Basically, it makes it a lot easier to find the headset because a lot of times it’s hard to like rummage around and find it because they’re so small.
Mike: Well, it is a fairly well-put together piece. Well, you can see this is all metal here. This is pretty solid as well. It goes for about a 150 to 200 bucks which is kind of in the upper range of these Bluetooth headsets. But you know for me, it’s you know the ergonomic quality of it as far as the fit over the ear and being able to see the calls without having to dig your phone up is a thumbs up for me.
Female: It’s a huge advantage.
Mike: If you’re interested in Bluetooth headset, you might also want to check out this.
