05.Swissvoice ePure Corded handset


This handset is made of hard plastic and feels solid. It comes with a base, which doubles as a stand for the handset as well as allowing you to connect your mobile phone to it. This gives you the option of having a direct connection to your mobile for mobility, or a more permanent connection should you need it. The connection is via a cable which means it can be used with almost any computer or mobile device that has a 3.5mm headphone out socket. There are volume and ON/OFF controls on the handset, but the former didn’t work with our iPhone 3Gs.

Voices are OK, but high tones are sibilant and scratchy.
