Gadget Review: Hisense HB200M Bluetooth Headset
I love gadgets! They make our lives easier and it could even save our lives!
You would all agree with me that traffic here in Manila is horrible and is very counter-productive. If I have to combine the time I get stuck in Manila traffic in a week, that would be 8 hours a week at least, in a year that’s 416 hours! What a waste.
Using your cellphone while driving is a no-no. I was caught by the police one time I was using my cellphone for a phone call. My excuse was, it was traffic anyway. But he insisted that what I did was still dangerous. And I have to agree guys, it’s dangerous not only to me but to other people as well. To my passenger, pedestrians and other drivers.
It’s about time I try a new gadget to save my life!
Hisense bluetooth is very lightweight at 7.5 gram only. It’s a mono headset and its purpose is to aid you with calls and even with music.
So now I can take my phone calls while driving. And I can use it when I warm-up and do my stretching for dance! No more wires! I only need to use this when there are other people with me in the house and they get bothered by my boom boom music. It’s also awesome using this in the gym or if I’m running. The headset is gripped quite well in my ear.
It might take time before you get used to something gripping in your ear, but if you do get use to it, you’ll barely feel it’s there anymore.
What’s cool is that it comes with a magnet necklace. When I’m done using it, I can just attach it to the necklace. This helps as well especially if you travel a lot like me.
Audio is clear when on phone. It’s not the best when it comes to playing music since it’s just mono. Stereo headphones are better.
I use this with any of my gadgets that has bluetooth pairing: MacBook, Blackberry Playbook, iPad and of course, my mobile phone.
Using it and setting it up is a breeze. Instructions are very clear in the manual and besides, this is generally how any bluetooth headset is set.
