Does what it was intended for – Mini Telephone with Handsfree Headset Reviews

Pros:
This mini telephone does what it was designed for which is to replace the normal handset with an earpiece so that you can have telephone conversations and still have your hands free to do other work.
Cons:
Cord of the earpiece may be too short but this can easily fixed by moving the phone closer (so you may need to extend the phone cable instead). Ppl with large ears or those with funny shaped ears may find the earpiece annoying or won't fit properly. Build quality is suspect but may stand up to normal daily abuse ... most probably will not survive if used constantly lilke at call centers. Volume of the mic may be lower than what you are used to when using a normal handset so you may need to speak up louder to be heard.
Other:
The phone base ringer is quite soft (relative comparison to normal phone I am using) so the additional port to add a second phone is useful to ensure that the ringing can be heard. It is also much smaller than expected. The base set is around the size of a large-ish walnut (uhm .... maybe 1/2 the size of a normal Nokia handphone?) and pretty light. To prevent it falling down when talking (due to head jerks and movement) you may need to stick it down with tape or stick a magnet to the back so that it can attach to metal surfaces for stability.
Bottomline:
It works, its cheap, it may be slightly flimsy and look like a toy.
