Most times, it isn’t easy to differentiate one Bluetooth headset from another, but thankfully, the i.Tech MyVoice 615 headset comes in five different designs for the local market, ranging from the usual suspects to more fanciful checkers and stripes.
The device itself is lightweight, small and contoured at the edges which makes it both easy to keep and wear. Given the minute size of the headset, controls are kept to a minimum and these include a multi-function button (MFB) on the bottom; a key lock and volume controls on the right; an indicator and USB port on the left. The MFB powers on or off the device, allows users to pair it up with a phone, and answer or end a call.
The key lock button proves to be useful as it prevents users from making calls unintentionally; incoming calls can still be answered even while locked. Most of these controls are small but conveniently positioned for easy access.
Audio quality over the Bluetooth A2DP connection is decent, thanks to noise-cancelling functionality. Additionally, recipients of our calls reported having clear sound even when we were in noisy outdoor locations. Other worthy mentions include a quick-charge function that allows for 1.5 hours worth of talk time for 15-minutes worth of charging.
If you are looking for a simple and fuss-free Bluetooth headset that does just the basics, the i.Tech MyVoice 615 is definitely a decent option to consider.
