Af­ford­able and Fea­ture Rich

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH - By Nidhi Sin­gal

THERE ISN’T MUCH to ex­pect from an af­ford­able Blue­tooth head­set. But the Plantron­ics ML2 is dif­fer­ent. at a price point of Rs 1,199, the ML2 looks good. This sleek head­set has a black matt fin­ish with glossy edges. There is a sin­gle key on the head­set that can be used for var­i­ous ac­tions in­clud­ing turn­ing it on, off, an­swer­ing calls and han­dling voice com­mands. The universal eartip at the back is very com­fort­able to wear for long du­ra­tions. Set­ting up the ML2 was sim­ple too. I was able to pair it with my phone in less than a minute. Just like other head­sets, it comes with mul­ti­point con­nec­tiv­ity and can be paired with two phones at the same time to take calls from ei­ther one. While an­swer­ing calls, none of those I spoke to was able to make out I was us­ing a Blue­tooth head­set. There is an Au­dio IQ tech­nol­ogy that sup­presses the back­ground noise. There is also a voice call- ing fea­ture that can be ac­ti­vated by press­ing the call but­ton for two sec­onds. But it has prob­lems – mak­ing calls was tough as it could not make out the names asked for. A sin­gle charge lasted about 5 and a half hours. To keep the price low, Plantron­ics has done away with the charg­ing ca­ble, which isn’t a good idea. How­ever, it can be charged us­ing the universal charg­ers we have today.
