Conclusion: Where performance is concerned, the Supertooth 3 really shines. BlueAnt has set a standard with their previous devices and didn't skimp on their latest edition. Voice quality on the receiving end of the call is excellent, though the noise cancellation doesn't cut out all ambient noise. The speakers provide great quality for listening over the noise of the road. The feature set is unbeatable, providing an excellent overall hands and eyes free experience.
Pros: Crystal Clear Sound Quality, Long Battery Life, Announces Callers from Contact List, Eyes-Free as well as Hands free, Strong Magnets and Clip, Automatic Reconnection
Cons: Monotone voice is annoying, Ambient Noise still prevalent, Voice Dialing through phone only, Bulky Packaging

BlueAnt Supertooth 3 Bluetooth Handsfree Speakerphone Review
7 August 2008
Excerpt: Last year, we took a close look at BlueAnt’s almost flawless mobile Bluetooth Speakerphone system – the Supertooth Light . The Supertooth Light was really one of the first great speakerphone systems that we got to play with here at Legit Reviews. It did almost everything well – for the user who wanted handsfree integration with their mobile phone and didn’t want to wear a wireless or corded headset, the $70 Supertooth Light was a very legitimate alternative.

Summary: Paring of the Supertooth 3 with a phone is pretty much the same as any handsfree kit, but there is a bit of twist.

I'm not psycho or anything, but we named her "Tiffany". Once the language is chosen, the Tiffany will guide you through the 10 second standard pairing of your...
Pros: Hands-free without a headset, Voice Activated Answer means you don't have to take your hands off the wheel to answer a call, Voice Prompts, Text To Speech announces callers name if it's in your address book (just number otherwise), Pair with up to 8 devices, Good range, Vibration sensing reconnect feature, Excellent battery life
Cons: Mic quality isn't as good as a headset, Speaker isn't quite loud enough in noisy driving environments, Couldn't sync address book on two phones
Conclusion: BlueAnt’s Supertooth 3 is a worthwhile alternative to Bluetooth headsets. It is easy to use, has plenty of features and long battery life. Although the echo cancellation is far from perfect, it is better than other car kits I have used. I would recommend the BlueAnt Supertooth 3 if you are looking for a hands free device without having a Bluetooth headset hanging off your ear.
