nexlink bluespoon ax2 (with quarter)MobileTechReview has thrown down a review of the Nextlink Bluespoon AX2 Bluetooth 1.2 headset. They are mad impressed by the diminutive size and weight — in fact, it's so light at 1/3-ounce that when worn "it doesn't feel like it's there." They didn't like the fact that it actually goes "in the ear" perhaps for fear of cooties. Body louse is not really a concern for us since we tend to hoard our toys, but the sound quality certainly is. They expected a deeper bass sound from the in-ear design but found it to be "overly telephonic" — this proved to be "tiring." However, volume levels were excellent for clear conversations in noisy environments. As to the battery, they achieved 7 of the 8 hours talk-time claimed (connected to a PC at max distance) and were not happy to find that charging must be done via USB only as a wall charger is not supplied — not very handy if you're mobile and only have access to your laptop or Crackberry. All-in-all, the AX2 comes away with 4/5 stars.
