MusiCALL stereo bluetooth headset, by Bluetrek

This system includes a pair of in-ear earbuds with a cable that connects to a clip-on piece of metal that includes the Bluetooth transmitter, volume control and play/pause/advance/previous buttons. Like many other Bluetooth stereo headsets, the system lets you listen to music wirelessly (the wireless from the transmitter to the phone/music player), and pauses to answer any incoming calls. When the call is finished, the system goes right back to your music.

What's nice about this system is that the earbuds can connect directly to the phone/music player if you're just interested in listening to music and not in the call answer functions (or the Bluetooth features). The package also comes with a USB charging cable and carrying case - it's a nice basic package that lets users listen to their music wirelessly with a decent pair of earbuds, but also ready to answer any calls.

Cool Yule rating: 4 stars
