Ok, so we know it’s cool looking, but how does it work as a headset??? I have to say I’m very happy with it. In fact, I’d say the guys will be jealous. They may start growing their nails!
The Techy Part of the Review
Turning on and Pairing
It was time to make a call. In fact I made three calls in a row and all four people (the last call had two people on extentions) let me know I sounded clear and understandable. Everyone I spoke to sounded clear to me. In fact, after several days of using the headset I noticed that I wasn’t getting dropped calls with a person I call fairly regularly with the Samsung a920. Normally, there’s constant dropping with that particular number. Using this headset was making my calls more pleasant. AND clearer!
I’d give the BluePearl an A+ for clarity and ease of use.
It took me a few tries to learn the tones that indicated when the headset is ON or OFF, but once you figure it out, no sweat.
Turn on: hold until you hear 2 slow tones – low to higher tone – (the headset will start it’s slow flashing blue light indicating it’s ON). The “connected-to-bluetooth” indicator on my phone didn’t light, however, after clicking the headset button again and hearing two fast tones, the connection indicator did turn on and the phone asked for a voice command. Other phones may work differntly, but my impression is that it really doesn’t matter if the phone’s BlueTooth indicator icon is on, the headset will make a call when you initiate one.
To turn off: hold the headset button until you hear a high (pause) then a lower tone. This is tricky because when you click the headset button you first hear two quick tones. it’s only because you HOLD the button down that the two slow tones initiate and that turns off the headset.
If this explaination seems confusing, trust me, once you actually use the headset it will all seem very simple.
Another feature I like is being able to transfer the call to the headset after the call has been answered from the phone. When you want to switch a call to the headset, it’s an easy process. Just place the headset in your ear and hold the button down until you hear the tones and then check that your “callie” can hear you. To make sure the transfer has occurred, I generally warn my call I’m switching. It process works seamlessly and easily.
If you want to decorate your computer to match your headset, look up the wallpapers available.
