BlueAnt Q1

 

Picking up a Bluetooth headset to gab on the go may spare you the distraction of pinning a phone to your ear with one hand while driving, but if you still need the handset to browse your contacts, dial, and hang up, you're far from free. Enter...

Above-average noise cancellation; small ; attractive form factor; accurate voice recognition

Fit doesn't inspire confidence; durability issues; only accesses eight speed dial contacts

While it can't compete on fashion-factor, it does manage respectable noise cancellation...

Q1 Bluetooth Headset

 

The Q1 from BlueAnt Wireless comes with an incredibly useful voice-control helper, which is unique to the Q1 and to its cousin, the BlueAnt V1. The $130 (as of 5/6/09) Q1 is an addition to the BlueAnt product family; it does not replace the V1.

Voice-controlled interface is a breeze to use Main control button delivers tactile feedback

Call quality is all over the map Pricey

The Q1's integrated voice control is one of this headset's greatest features. If your cell phone supports speed dialing and you'd like to handle calls using your voice a lot of the time, consider the Q1. Be prepared for inconsistent call quality, though

BlueAnt Q1

 

Voice tests were a mixed bag. On my end of the conversation, the Q1 sounded fine, with a solid amount of gain and a smooth tone. Unfortunately, my voice sounded processed on the other end, both to other callers and in voice-mail tests. Compared with...

Attractive, minimalist style. Voice-controlled user interface. Effective noise canceling

Processed, unnatural voice timbre heard at the other end. Occasional UI glitches. Poor battery life

The voice-controlled BlueAnt Q1 is a looker and a solid effort from a company that's fast gaining ground with its line of Bluetooth headsets—but the competition has moved further ahead still.

Best budget Bluetooth headset

 

Reviewers like that the BlueAnt Q1 can be controlled almost exclusively with voice commands, including answering or ignoring calls and checking the battery level. When connected with an Android phone, the Q1 can also read back text messages. While the...

Voice controlled, great audio quality, inexpensive

Alignment must be good, noisy environment makes voice hard to distinguish

BlueAnt Q1 Bluetooth Headset (Review)

 

A growing number of states are passing and enforcing hands-free driving laws, making now a good time to step over to the hands-free world. Waves of Bluetooth wireless devices have hit the market over the last year, and BlueAnt seems to be riding the...

Review: Review of the BlueAnt Q1 Bluetooth headset

 

Ricky spent a bit of time testing out the BlueAnt Q1 Bluetooth headset, which features a speaker independent voice command system for most headset functions. Read his review to find out how it performed in the real world.

I actually agree with that comment. I have one of these headsets right now since I was testing it with some Android software, and I like it quite a bit. The voice commands can be clunky, but you don't actually need them for much of anything once the...

Review: BlueAnt Q1 Bluetooth headset

 

BlueAnt provides one of the first voice controlled Bluetooth headsets.

Voice control truly works ; Comfortable ; Easy to pair up ; Speed dialing in its own memory ; Good voice quality; effective noise cancellation

Low volume on startup ; Side buttons can be confusing ; Expensive compared to some headsets ; No bundled carrying case

In my other career as a reviewer of new cars, I have the opportunity to travel around the world testing the latest and greatest motor vehicles from America, England, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Korea. With many of these locales incorporating hands-fre

BlueAnt Q1 Voice Control Headset

 

Wireless phones have dominated the market for the past couple of years and unless you are getting a cheap pay-as-you-go phone, there is a 90% chance that you have Bluetooth capabilities in your phone. This can be handy for a number of reasons including...

Very comfortable ; Good Noise Isolation DSP ; Pairs with eight devices ; Actively connects to two device at once ; Voice command reminders can be accessed by pressing the button then saying "What can I say ; Frequent firmware updates, enhance product...

Voice recognition is not accurate in noisy environments ; Battery life has been cut from the V1/Z9 series

This is our fourth BlueAnt headset we've looked at here at BCCHardware, and for the most part things keep getting better and better. The Q1 is the evolution of their dual-mic noise cancellation technology and the "custom designed internal wind shields"...
