What customers say about "Key Specs"
Parrot Minikit Neo 2 HD Voice controlled portable Bluetooth hands-free kit
  • Having both the first Neo which is in the wife's car and now having this in my truck, I can attest that these are great devices.
  • Pairing is pretty straight forward, especially on my Android running Lollipop 5.0.1. For Lollipop, you just open up the bluetooth settings and that scans for devices waiting to be paired.
  • Much improved clip system. I had the first gen of this BT system and it wouldn't clip on to my older car's thick visor without the clip breaking. This version has a better range for the clip and it slides into the visor perfectly, and securely.
  • The device itself is also great. I use it on a convertible top-down and have no issues hearing callers. Importantly they say they hear me perfectly and they do not year any wind noise. This Neo 2 HD does the job I needed it to do!
  • Lousy voice recognition. Doesn't understand the name I say to call and does wrong dials as a result.
  • While call volume is good, the volume for music or audio books is weak.
SuperTooth HD Voice In Car Speakerphone
  • Easy to set-up, and seamless connectivity to the IPhone 4S with Siri. Making and receiving calls is easy, and the sound quality is very good - excellent when driving.
  • This unit did everythng I expected it to do. Long battery life is impressive (1 charge per month!). Sturdy mount magnet. Glad I invested in it.
  • Once fully charged the batteries have held up well - at least a couple of weeks since I charged it and I almost never remember to switch it off when I leave the car.
  • Loud and clear. Use it in my noisy SUV. Don't care about its other features. Purchase it for its sound quality only. Works better than I expected, and I expected allot.
  • At last! A Bluetooth car speaker which is loud and clear. It's so loud I can't use it on full volume, which is great. Incoming call quality is the best I've heard.
  • The only downside is the battery doesn't last long between charges, about a week. I am a courier, however, and it's normally on for about 10 hours a day, every day.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Parrot Minikit Neo 2 HD Voice controlled portable Bluetooth hands-free kit
  • A great little way to go hands free.
  • The unit is smaller than I expected, but the audio quality is much better than expected.
  • It is small, beautifully designed and slips right off the visor and into a purse or pocket.
SuperTooth HD Voice In Car Speakerphone
  • The supertooth products are the smallest; The rest about the same size except for the Motorola Roadster Pro which is very large compared to the rest. I used the Roadster Pro the least because it was too big for my car.

What customers say about "Features"
Parrot Minikit Neo 2 HD Voice controlled portable Bluetooth hands-free kit
  • Portable (between our two cars, traveling, etc), supports multiple phones, voice recognition, battery monitoring, app, overall ease of use.
  • It was easy to set up and operates exactly as stated by Parrot. My wife has used it to receive calls while driving and is very happy that she can now do so without risking a moving violation.
  • Solid sound quality for a bluetooth speaker. Sometimes when switching from my iPhone to the Parrot Minikit, sound quality gets bad but most of the time it's really clear and loud.
  • I have had several Parrot Bluetooth speakers in the past and overall have been very satisfied. My main complaint with this particular model is that it does not hold a charge for very long at all. I have to charge it nearly everyday and it is somewhat cumbersome at times to use some of the features.
  • Design makes it easy to use without looking. Worked very well for 2 days then it completely died. No charge indication, would not turn on - gone.
  • Feels cheaply made. Does not hold charge as described. Inconsistent performance when making calls. At times asks what number you are calling when you have the radio in your car on.
  • When it works, it works well. Problem is that within 2 months it stop holding a charge. Vendor is going to replace it.
SuperTooth HD Voice In Car Speakerphone
  • The magnet design that holds the unit to the visior clip allows the driver to easliy reposition the unit to the back of the visor when it is down, or any location where a within range of the bluetooth signal.
  • This does a great job for me. I mostly forget to shut it off at night but the battery lasts for weeks anyway. The sound is quite clear and it is very easy to use.
  • Excellent sound quality. The voice version can be annoying for some (each time you get in your car, a robot voice tells you your cell is connected), but otherwise it works perfectly. There's a version without the voice function. Not cheap though.
  • Forget about Voice. Recognition is hit or miss....Mostly miss. I've had this for a couple of years and give it 5 Stars...as a paperweight.
  • The big downside for me is the voice recognition. Not sure if it uses its own system or the system in the iPhone, but between them they fail miserably to recognize my requests for connection (as does the phone on its own). But that defeats the object, so just 3 stars.
