Pairing the headset with a cell phone is easy. Just select Connections from the menu on your phone, activate the Bluetooth feature, then turn on the headset--the match is made. Features on the headset include a talk/end button and a volume control. If your phone supports voice-activated dialing, you simply say the name into the headset, and your mobile does the rest. And like most Bluetooth headsets, this one has a built-in rechargeable battery that's juiced up via an included cradle/holster. A blue light flashes from the headset when it's on.
We tested the FreeSpeak and adapter with the Sony Ericsson T68i and found call quality to be good. Callers typically couldn't tell we were using a headset. Additionally, we met the 10-meter range of use.
As for battery life, we managed to get only 2 hours of talk time vs. the company's claims of 3 hours and about 48 hours of standby, compared to Jabra's reported rates of 96 hours. Comparatively speaking, this isn't bad, but it's not fabulous, either.
