BlueAnt S1 Handsfree with MultiPoint

 

BlueAnt doesn't have the brand recognition here in North America that other companies such as Jabra and Plantronics, but their products offer great features, a very nice price and good quality. Today we are looking at the second hands-free car kit from...

Good Range ; Excellent Battery Life - 30+ days on standby ; Good noise/echo cancellation ; Good speaker volume & clarity ; Multi-point capability - connect to 8 devices ; Voice activated answer

Still not as clear as a headset

This is our second BlueAnt hands-free kit that we've looked at and I've got to admit it's a nice upgrade over the SuperTooth 3. Although it has a few stripped down features from the SuperTooth 3, it still has enough improvements to make it a better...

BlueAnt S1 Sun Visor Bluetooth Handsfree Car Kit - HardwareZone.com

 

If you hate being distracted while driving, or if you drive a manual transmission car, the BlueAnt S1 Bluetooth handsfree kit could be a lifesaver.

BlueAnt S1 Headset

 

For the price, the BlueAnt S1 is an excellent Bluetooth speakerphone with great features and performance.

Compact design ; Ability to answer calls with your voice ; Multipoint technology ; A2DP stereo Bluetooth ; Automatic reconnect ; Very good call quality

Won't replace your car stereo speakers in terms of audio quality ; Volume rocker is a bit stiff ; Won't read incoming caller ID like the Supertooth 3

The BlueAnt S1 has up to 15 hours talk time and a standby time of 33.3 days. It comes with an AC adapter wall charger.

Consumer review by: UnarmedGorilla (newegg.com)

A little disappointed

 

Maybe I had my expectations set a little to high, but this device just does not seem to deliver on a consistent basis.

When it works the voice quality seems to be fine and it does what I had it expected it to do

Voice answer does not always work. Have tethered two devices (an iphone and an HTC7) to it and neither seems to work on a consistent basis. No car charger out of the box is a major inconvenience as it requires you to remove the device from the vehicle...

It's ok

 

I bought this specifically for the voice answering capability. I drive a lot and get many calls. I wanted this so I would not have to fumble with a phone while driving. Unfortunately, the unit does not respond to the voice commands. I checked my cell...

Easy bluetooth setup. Nice clear speaker

Voice answer did not work

Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

broke early

 

Clip used to fasten it to the sunvisor wasn't easy to use and never felt like the designs was quite what it should have been.

Mostly worked as expected until it broke

Voice quality was not good, but it was sufficient to have a conversation. The big problem is it broke in the 2nd month, for not apparent reason ; Sound quality wasn't great for audiobook playback, and in general wasn't that loud

Very Poor

 

Works (kinda)

Sound quality is really bad on both ends. The Supertooth 3 worked pretty well, but this one is really bad. It feels cheap and it's totally not worth $75. Echoing is bad too

Works good for me.

 

After my wife's good experience with this for the past year, I bought another one for my vehicle. The price is great compared with the price I paid 1 year ago.

Sound quality is good as long as it is on the visor above the person speaking. Battery life is very good. We left it in the car all winter (-20F) and didn't have any problems

It starts to echo when the battery is almost dead. This is how I know when to recharge it

Very poor

 

Had a Supertooth Lite, and it was awesome. It was easy, and the sound quality was great, on both ends. Switched to this one for the AD2P compatibility. I've sent it back to Blueant, and they're checking it out.

None beyond what is advertised

User interface is poorly designed, the sound quality is bad, and it echoes for the person on the other end

BlueAnt S1 Headset

 

I can hear callers loud and clear BUT the people I've called all complain of the initial words of my sentences getting cut off. Seems to take microphone a second to fully active every time you start speaking. It's a great device for people that start...
