When the new hands-free headset law went into effect on July 1, I hurriedly ran off to buy my headset. I went for cuteness factor and bought a green iLuv316 (pictured above). Being a gadget girl, I usually research these kind of purchases to death. This time, I skimped and didn’t research. I wish I had. While it is cute, I don’t love my iLuv so much. Sometimes, it sounds like I’m talking into a tin can. Other times, I can barely hear the person I’m talking to. My conversations now consist primarily of me saying “What?! I just missed that” or “Beg your pardon. Can you repeat that?”. It’s aggravating. What I’m trying to figure out is if most Bluetooth headsets sound like crap or does mine suck because it’s cheap and cute. One would think I would have tried the ole’ bluetooth by now. Sadly, I was one of those jerks that happily chatted away with my phone to my face while driving.
To those I’ve called while using my horrible headset, I apologize. If anyone needs me, I’ll be at Target buying one of those “old-fashioned” corded headset.
