BlueAnt T1


BlueAnt introduced us to voice-controlled Bluetooth headsets with the BlueAnt V1 in 2008 and then again with its BlueAnt Q1 last year. This year, BlueAnt introduces the BlueAnt T1 that promises to be the company's best headset yet. Not only does it...

The BlueAnt T1 is a durable and rugged headset with a great voice user interface. Its features include A2DP streaming, multipoint, and the announcement of incoming caller names. Also, its wind noise cancellation is fantastic.

The BlueAnt T1 is a bit bulkier than its predecessors were, and the caller name announcement could be perfected.

With its sturdy build, voice features, and excellent audio quality, the T1 is BlueAnt's best headset yet.

BlueAnt T1


I've tested so-called rugged Bluetooth headsets before, but this is the first I've seen with removable sleeves. The T1 includes two included sleeves, which you can use to protect it when you're expecting harsh conditions like heavy winds and rain....

Rugged sleeves for bad conditions. Clear, warm sound quality. Voice prompt-based interface. Streams podcasts and audiobooks over A2DP

Ungainly appearance. Bulky even without the sleeves

The BlueAnt T1 is a rugged little Bluetooth headset for the outdoors enthusiast, and it holds up in sound quality too.

As our world grows more mobile, the importance of being able to go hands free and pay attention to what we are doing also grows. Not only is texting or emailing and driving dangerous, but we are discovering that driving and using a handset for any use...

BlueAnt T1 Rugged Bluetooth Headset


As more and more people make the move to hands-free calling in their vehicle, companies that make affordable and feature-rich solutions have a great opportunity to capture some market share. This is where a company like BlueAnt comes into play. They...

Very comfortable ; Good Noise Isolation DSP ; Frequent firmware updates, enhance product and resolve issues ; Excellent receiving audio quality and can be used to listen to A2DP audio

Voice recognition is not accurate in noisy environments ; Noise Isolation cannot be tweaked ; Lacks the robust Voice Control of the V1, Q1 and Q2 headsets

This is now our sixth BlueAnt headset we've looked at here at BCCHardware, and for the most part things keep getting better and better. The T1 is the "rugged" evolution of their dual-mic noise cancellation technology and the new "Wind Armor" technology...

BlueAnt T1 “Rugged” Bluetooth Headset Review


BlueAnt T1 Rugged Bluetooth Wireless Headset is a must have for those who spend more time driving their cars than sitting or working indoors.

Consumer review by:

"Loved it completely until resetting was needed."


Would have given it a 5 if I hadn't bought a new phone and had to attempt to pair it. Could not remove old phone settings so that I could reuse it with my new Samsung S3. Had to go into chat groups online to figure it out. Love it otherwise. Great...

Noise reduction, initial setup and voice quality.

Clearing memory to connect to a new phone, the way it fits in ear canal.

Consumer review by:

"Works great when it works"


Still looking for that bluetooth that is as close to perfect as possible. This one ain't it.

Rugged. Good wind noise reduction. Fits well in ear. Announces name of caller. Have to download list of phone contacts to it. Do other bluetooth's require this? If a new person is calling you it reads the phone number.

The voice that announces the caller is the absolute WORST thing I've ever heard. I thought is was gibberish the first two weeks I had it.

"Tested this item out myself and it works great"


Superior Wind Performance

Use your voice to control headset

a little on the bulky side

Over Priced Under Performing


I returned this headset and picked up a Plantronics M50. So far the M50 is a much better headset. First of all pairing the T1 was clunky. I was pairing to a Motorola phone. Dealing with the user interface on a Motorola V860 on Verizon is painful enough...

Light weight. Good sound quality. Announcements are clear and audible... if they work at all

Poor setup. No voice announcement of low battery status, you have to speak and ask for it. Three finger salute to reset. Dropped pairing repeatedly. Poor battery life. Poor support. Not a good experience
