For Luxury Car Environments, Not Noisy Economy Cars
14 January 2012
Summary: I love my Honda Fit. It's dependable, great on gas, and I can carry an expeditions worth of gear in the back with the seats down. However, it's a noisy little beast going down the highway. For this reason, I knew I needed a speakerphone with good volume and other reviewers had said the Jabra Cruiser2 was louder than most devices of this type. However,it could not compete with road noise at 60mph. Even turned to maximum volume I struggled to hear people talk to me.
Summary: First let me say if you are looking for a hands free speakerphone, this is not the one to get. There is nothing about it that is hands free. I tested the Blue Ant S4 which is really hands free. With the Blue Ant you use your voice to dial and answer calls. With the Crusier 2, everything requires the press of a button. For example, you simply tell the Blue Ant "Phone Commands" and it automatically activates your phones voice dialing. Then you say "call xyz".
Great sound but on/off button so small was next to imposible

Summary: I loved the voice quality of this BUT the on/off button was so tiny that I couldn't live with the fumbling around just trying to turn it on or off. It was so frustrating, I was forced to return item. The other problem I had was that it wouldn't fit on my visor (my visor flips up and down) properly but I could have lived with that. If the on and off button would have been larger, just normal size, I would have kept this. The voice quality was excellent.
Summary: Sadly (and I was so hopeful!) that this was the answer to handsfree calling without an earpiece but alas, the product let me down. The clear voice, the volume control and the ease of pairing my contact list from my IPhone 3GS were great. Unfortunately, the device was totally inconsistant in recongnizing my voice or a command and most times did not even respond.
Pros: voice dial a plus , easy set up , clear sound with volume control
Summary: This is the first Jabra car kit i have owned. The first unit the mute and volume did not,work plus it would disconnect every 2 mins. The online Co. sent me a replacement. Still had mute and disconnect problems. Tech Support emailed me a probable solution, But to no avail. The Jabra CO. is sending me a replacement. Jabra has been very accommodating. Time will tell!
Pros: Clear Signal, Easy To Use, Good Sound, Lightweight
Summary: Neither I nor Jabra tech support could get voice dialing to work with a Motorola Droid running the most recent Froyo (2.2) update. I've had no problem with voice dialing with other devices, including an old Jabra bluetooth headset. The device itself seemed ok, volume was loud, although the plasticky build quality was questionable and it was a fingerprint magnet.
Summary: When I get in the car and switch this on I really don't like the long loud burst of samba startup music. It's not necessary and not pleasant and unfortunatley can't be switched off. The user interface is really poor. It may be fairly handsfree but I can't remember how many taps to do for each function. Thankfully the basic take a call and make a call is easy and sound quality is really good. No wires and no earpiece is great....
