Review: JABRA Freeway
12 June 2014
Excerpt: It takes a lot for a gadget to make me to stand up and go “WOW.” But guess what? That’s just what the JABRA Freeway made me do. We first heard about the Freeway back in March and even then I had a feeling it would be something special.
Pros: Handles calls, music and navigation, allows for 2 BT devices to be paired, loud, includes FM transmitter.
Summary: If you're looking for a slick and affordable way to equip your auto with a hands-free system, look no further than the Freeway. From its ease of setup to high quality built-in audio, the Freeway is a win all around. The dual noise canceling mics did a great job cutting out road noise and the polished voice guidance system worked very well.
Pros: Great Design:, Ease of Use:, Controls:, Call Quality:, Additional Functionality:
Jabra FREEWAY wireless Bluetooth in-car speakerphone review
23 August 2013
Excerpt: The Jabra FREEWAY is a hands-free car speakerphone that connects to your phone via Bluetooth and has a built-in FM transmitter that allows you to stream calls and any phone audio over your car stereo or via the built-in speakers. The FREEWAY mounts on your sun visor, and using motion sensor technology, it turns itself off when your car is not moving and no Bluetooth device is connected.
Summary: If you find yourself straining to hear calls on your current hands-free setup or just want the best sound possible for calls or podcasts, the Jabra Freeway is the Bluetooth speakerphone for you.
Cons: The Jabra Freeway is rather bulky, which limits its portability.
Summary: The Jabra Freeway is an in-car Bluetooth speakerphone, a role that it performs very well. Speaker quality is top class for voice, as well as for music. The ability to pair with a couple of devices simultaneously is another plus. The ability to accept or reject calls via voice makes it a true handsfree device especially for those whoï¿½s better part of the day is spent behind the wheel. The price tag is a little steep, at Rs .
Pros: Easy to setup, Crisp and loud audio, Simple bluetooth pairing process, Good build quality and great looks, Impressive battery backup, Voice feedback for battery level, incoming/outgoing calls and info
Cons: Clicking sound from the operating buttons, A bit of jarring at 100% sound level, Voice commands are rarely recognised at once
Summary: You could buy a top-shelf Bluetooth headset for less than the $130 Jabra expects to fetch for its Freeway, and speakerphones like this are pretty much limited to in-car use (although we suppose you could operate it on a desktop if you really wanted to). But if you spend a lot of time in your car and on the phone, the Jabra Freeway is a great solution.
Pros: Long battery life, great sound quality, and a wide range of feature.
Cons: Expensive, and its form factor limits its utility to in-car use.
Conclusion: The Jabra Freeway also supports Bluetooth streaming, which means you can activate your phone’s music player and have the audio streamed directly to the Freeway’s speaker. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, the Freeway also has an FM transmitter mode which lets you use your car’s audio system for listening to phone calls or any phone audio.
Excerpt: Jabra has long been considered one of the industry leaders when it comes to providing mobile communications accessories. Their Bluetooth headsets exist in such a wide range, it has often been said that there was something for everyone in Jabra’s lineup.
Excerpt: Jabra have been known to do high quality bluetooth accessories in the past and now that I have my hands on another one of their products I was glad to review it. The packaging was very professional and the outside of the box looked good. The product itself didn’t have much weight to it which was surprising, it has 3 speakers in the front with several command buttons around the device.
