The BluEye lets you make and receive calls on your iPod, gives you FM radio and a remote as well. What more could you want?

This compact gadget uses Bluetooth link your iPod to your mobile phone to make and receive calls, plus it throws an FM radio receiver into the bundle.

Compact ; Convenient ; Caller ID appears on iPod screen ; Good radio reception ; Updatable with Firmware as interface improves

Voice activated calling is not seamless

A nice touch is that the BluEye can connect to the net via its tiny USB connection (cable not included) for firmware updates as the interface improves.

I picked up a similar product (mfg.BLURINGO from Korea) from Singapore duty free for US$54. The product works well with my 80GB ipod and BB 8820 (no problems in Bluetooth automatic pairing) with the exception of FM radio reception which is a bit...

Good BT pairing, audio loss is marginal

Patchy FM, Battery consumption from iPOD heavy, poor build quality (plastic casing component gives way)

I'm happy with the functionality, but the sound quality of the music is not as good. I have (very) expensive Shure E500 PTH hearphones, which deliver a truly outstanding quality when plugged directly in the Ipod. If I go through the blueye, the quality...

Sound quality is degraded

Hi there. I bought it yesterday. Actually I bought the white (not the black one). It wasn't too easy to do the pair with my Nokia 6280. However I manage to pair it.

The reception on FM bis not too good. I mean that the "radio-remote" from Apple, has better reception. However... I can afford it

The sound of the call is not loud. In open places, sometimes I loose words of the guy I talk with. I hope they will do an upgrade soon...on their firmware
