Hands-free is a device, which allows you to talk without holding a phone in your hands. They can be devided into hands-free ear bud sets and car-kits. The hands-free ear bud set consists of headphones with a microphone on a wire. Accepting a call, you should not take the phone to the ear - autocall takes place or, very often, there is a button Answer/Finish on the unit. The hands-free ear bud is rather convenient while operating a computer, driving a car, etc. In many countries hands-free headsets are soon to be mandatory, as it is now in New York.
"By requiring drivers to put down their cell phones and pay attention to the road, this new law will help make our roads safer and save lives",- says Gov. George Pataki, New York Promote Safe Driving. The price is lowered as an added incentive to promote wireless safety. Thus, the main advantage is in the low price and mobility: it can be used in a car, office, at home, while walking.
There is a wide range of set-models either original or non-original. The manufacturers of original sets (Nokia, Siemens, Ericsson, Samsung hands free, etc.) keep to a classical style - a headphone and a microphone on a wire, a button Answer/Finish, though you may find other futuristic ideas. For instance, Ericsson releases for its mobile phones wireless sets. Foreign manufacturers release not only analogues of original sets, but other qualified and comfortable models.
A pilot-set, for example, has a headset combined with a long microphone. Putting it on the ear gives an opportunuty for free moving; hence, you should not worry that the headphone will leave its place, and long mocrophone limits outside noises and sounds, giving a good transmission of speech.
Another type is a hands-free set KOMOTO. It has a good quality of sound transmission, a good design and comfort in use. The hands-free ear bud headset is ultra light and very comfortable to wear. The ear bud keeps the unit in place in your ear and can be put on and taken off effortlessly with only one hand. The ear bud rests gently in your ear (not on your head), and, as a result, you can wear it with sunglasses, and without messing up your hair. The ear bud stays in your ear securely while the small microphone hangs near your mouth to pick up your voice. There is also a handy clip that attaches to clothing for the easy cord management, it adds extra stability to your hands-free experience.
The built-in super sensitive microphone does not need to bee near mouth to pick up your voice. The universal hands-free ear bud part goes into one of your ears and 2.5 mm Jack goes into the 2.5 mm plug in of your phone. Usually, the plug in is located on the Left Hand side of your phone, but in some models, it may be located in the bottom.
The universal hands-free ear bud works on any brand cellphone with a standard 2.5 millimeter hands-free headset Jack, such as AT&T, Audiovox, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Oki, Samsung, Sanyo, Sony, Sprint and Toshiba. Most Motorola and Panasonic models are also compatiple. An adapter may be needed for Ericsson, Nokia, GE, Qualcomm, and the remainder of the Motorola and Panasonic Models. You can enjoy a portable hands-free head set, while riding in a car, driving a motorcycle, or walking through a mall.
