Hands-on Review of the Blue Ant Q1
by Mark R
It’s been a while since we touched on the Blue Ant Q1, and it was about time that I managed to get a review model. In fact, I have been trying for over a year since its introduction in CES 2009.
The Q1 is probably one of the easiest Bluetooth headsets that I have ever used. Part of it is because it is the first Bluetooth headset that talked to me. Seriously, I put it in my ear, and it gave me instructions for pairing with my mobile phone.
So if a phone call comes in, I can just say “answer” or “ignore”, and it will do just that. I can even have it call information or eight speed dial numbers with a vocal command. The one that most impressed me was that I could check the battery life of both the headset and my mobile phone by just saying “Check Battery”.
The Q1 had a nice design that stayed on my ear due to its easy hook design. It has “voice isolation technology” that can “reduce noise and wind”.
Other features pairing of up to eight separate devices, as well as multipoint (connecting 2 phones and answer from the one that rings). As for talk time, it is good for 4 hours, or 100 hours of standby.
In short, it is quite an easy-to-use Bluetooth headset that works quite well, and I would recommend it. I believe that Blue Ant has the more advanced T1 out now, and Amazon has price-slashed the Q1 to $63.99. You can check it out here.
