Review (February 2010) - BlueAnt
By Kevin Nakano
Handsfree Bluetooth speakerphones are my favorite way to make or receive calls while I am driving. For some reason I have never liked the in-ear designs because they don't seem to fit me correctly. BlueAnt has introduced the Supertooth 3 (ST3) handsfree speakerphone, which is one of the best designs I have used. The ST3 measures 4.80 x 2.40 x 0.80 inches (121.92 x 60.96 x 20.32 mm) and weighs 3.88 ounces (115 grams). The unit attaches itself magnetically to a metal visor clip (2 are included). The unit is designed to provide a safe way to use your mobile phone while driving. It can be paired with up to 8 devices and supports voice dial activation, redial and call reject (if your mobile phone supports these features). The BlueAnt ST3 comes with a car adapter, an AC adaptor, 2 sun visor clips, a quick start guide, a users manual, and a warranty card.
Operation and Performance
The Supertooth 3 also features advanced Digital Signal Processing software that helps eliminate noise and produces good sound quality. This was the case even with some moderate background noise. The ST3 automatically adjusts the sound level based on ambient noise levels.
Our review unit came with a vehicle power charger along with a vent clip cradle. This keeps the headset in an easy to find location while being charged in the vehicle. The ST3 has an internal rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. BlueAnt states up to 15 hours of talk time and up to 800 hours of standby time. Charge time can be up to 3 hours depending on the battery level. When connecting the ST3 to the power adapter (car or AC), the unit says "Charging" giving a good indication that power has been applied.
