"Great Headset, clear calls, Very handy voice control"5.0 starson by D_Modano
Pros: -Looks good on me (so says my wife)
-Call quality is better than her Jawbone 2
-Voice Control a huge help on convenience
-Prompt tells you if your connected
-Audible Caller ID is convenient for many calls
Cons: -The big earpad standard is not as comfortable as the smaller black one in the box. Try switching if you are having issues.
Summary: Picked this up at Sprint. Using it with a BlackBerry Curve and very happy with it. Huge step forward from any headset I've ever used.
My wife has a Jawbone which I have used some and so far the call quality of the Q1 is much more consistent than the Jawbone which would seem to phase in and out of decent quality. I recorded several voicemails of myself using the Q1 outside in street noise and was very impressed. Have not tried it in high wind yet since have not experienced it yet.
The voice control works fine for me if you just take a few mintues to learn the commands. It has a Teach Me function that after just a few times you've memorized most of the main ones.
I would advise just taking 1 or 2 mintues to use Teach Me when you get it. That fixed some mistakes I was making that caused voice control not to work as well like saying Battery Check instead of Check Battery.
The Q1 is very convenient and fast for calling back, redialing, and dialing your top 3 or 4 numbers through quick speed dials. (They give you more than that however, I can't remember all of them) Beyond that you just use your name dial in the phone however that just takes much longer to initiate the call, so if all your doing is redialing your last caller it's SOOOO much faster to just say Redial into the headset.
Caller ID is nice and it lets you answer or ignore the call just by voice. I'm sure one day they will move to Caller ID by name, but you probably have to have some way of loading your phone book in the headset for that.
Kind of cool, the Check Battery voice command feature also tells you both the headset and your phone battery levels.
The prompts are very nice and basically remove any need for you to have to even look at the user guide.
Fit is fine. I saw the guys comment about the Q1 earhook chafing. It doesn't even touch mine and I'm 6'2" so I wonder if he just had a huge head or something.
Overall very impressed. I don't know why more headsets dont put in the voice control. I've only had it a day and a half and have used it probably 20 times to take calls or call people. Very handy.
