Expert review by: stuffmagazine (



The Yamaha M170 has a DAB/FM/AM tuner, 40 presets, compatibility with CD-R/RW discs and a sleep timer. It may look flash, but it's workmanlike too

A ton of features. Intuitively laid-out buttons.

It's not a motorbike if that's what you were hoping.

Product Specifications

The M170 sleek headset is ideal for use either in your car or with selected DECT phones. It is compatible with all headset-ready cellular, PCS or cordless phone, i.e., equipped with a jack for plugging a headset directly into the phone. For cellular and PCS phones that are not headset-ready, you will need a headset adapter with a built-in headset jack. The M170 incorporates the versatile headset that can be converted from headband to over-the-ear style and features an adjustable microphone boom and an advanced speaker technology that protects hearing. The Plantronics RF Noise Shield reduces annoying RF static noise. The microphone possesses an adjust switch for optimal voice output. The headset is compatible with telecoil-equipped hearing aids. It also has the special clothing clip for added stability on the move.
