Retro Cordless Telephone Handset
Top Positive Review
I originally bought the version of this handset that connects to your cell phone with a wire. It was an absolute piece of crap. The sound quality was terrible and the wire was so short, you ended up holding your cel in you hand anyway. i returned that one and bought this one. It is awesome! Its bluetooth so it is truly hands free. The battery lasts forever. Just remember only use it as a handset not an audio device or it will start playing your music and kill your battery. I didn’t notice the first time. The volume is loud and clear on both ends of the call. Super comfy to use when your just laying around and like the feel of these old handsets. So easy to just hold between your ear and shoulder. I love this and would recommend this to anyone that misses the feel of an old handset, lol.
Top Critical Review
For those of us who grew up using a traditional telephone handset, this design is upside down: the microphone (19-hole star) and the earpiece (7-hole star) are reserved, with all of the electronics (and weight) behind the 19-hole star. This makes the unit top heavy, and it makes it awkward to use for anyone accustomed to picking up a handset. That said, this was purchased to allow other people to make a phone call using my cell phone (when needed), without them handling my phone. It does serve that purpose. It also tends to battle my smartwatch for the audio connection on incoming phone calls, I am still working on sorting that one out; it may be the settings between the handset & the phone.
