CLIP IT UP

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

As wlays, Jabra has tried to be dif­fer­ent with its Clip­per Bluee­toth head­set. Like Jabra’s pen­dant unit, the clip­per is a small piece of Blue­tooth hard­ware in the shape of a clip.

Made of rub­berised ma­te­rial, there are vol­ume con­trols on the top with a mic and an LED in­di­ca­tor. The 3.5mm jack on the side plugs in the wired head­set added in the box. The clip­per can be clipped any­where on the shirt while the head­phone with the ear-buds makes it way to the ears. The com­pact Clip­per is a light weight ac­ces­sory that is re­ally very com­fort­able to carry around. But the de­sign isn’t rev­o­lu­tion­ary as there are oth­ers who do the same.

The Clip­per was quick in pair­ing up. This stereo head­set did a de­cent job while an­swer­ing calls and lis­ten­ing to mu­sic. It is equipped with a noise fil­ter for en­hanc­ing the in-com­ing sound, but we could not make out any dif­fer­ence in the au­dio qual­ity. Dur­ing windy days, it did not work at all.

Sur­pris­ingly, the mu­sic play­back ex­pe­ri­ence was im­pres­sive. It can­not re­place a tra­di­tional head­set, but still has great bass. One can also plug in a dif­fer­ent head­set if they wish.

This head­set is avail­able in dif­fer­ent colours— white, tan­ger­ine tango, turquoise and pink.
