Excerpt: I have to say that I've had the chance to test out a few good popular Bluetooth headsets from Jawbone and others, so when BlueAnt introduced their newest Bluetooth headset called the Q2 which we have here for review, I thought it would be just another ordinary and modest headset. And after using it for a while I quickly found out that it actually is one of the best Bluetooth headset I've ever tried.
Summary: The BlueAnt Q2 is yet another BlueAnt winner, with new Bing-411 features and fantastic call quality even in windy situations.
Pros: The BlueAnt Q2 is slim and slender, with an impressive voice control interface that includes text-to-speech and access to Bing-411 services. It also has A2DP streaming, multipoint connectivity, and amazing sound quality.
Cons: The BlueAnt Q2 has very tiny physical controls, and there are quite a number of commands to remember.
Summary: Installation of the BlueAnt Q2 Smart Bluetooth Headset is really very simple. You have two ways to pair the headset with your device. The "analog" way is to put the unit into pairing mode by simply hold the MFB (Multi-Function Button) for one second when the unit is idle. This will cause the indicator LED to flash rapidly to let you know it is ready to be paired with.
Pros: Very comfortable, Good Noise Isolation DSP, Pairs with eight devices, Actively connects to two devices at once., Voice command reminders can be accessed by pressing the button then saying "What can I say"., Frequent firmware updates, enhance product and resolve issues., Excellent receiving audio quality and can be used to listen to A2DP audio.
Cons: Voice recognition is not accurate in noisy environments., Noise Isolation cannot be tweaked.
Excerpt: The BlueAnt Q2 bluetooth headset is billed as “the best sounding headset ever built”. Well, that’s a tall order. Most bluetooth headsets I’ve tried range from merely acceptable, to rotten. How does the BlueAnt Q2 fare, and what extras are packed on board? The packaging consists of a clear plastic display box atop a cardboard bottom half that contains all the extra goodies.
Pros: Full and rich sounding incoming audio., Voice-activated commands, text-to-speech, and more., Hardware power on/off switch.
Cons: Fit is a very personal thing. You may love it, or not., Power switch difficult to access when headset is worn., A little pricey (at the time of this writing)
