The guys from SuperTooth sent over their hands-free car kit the SuperTooth Buddy. This is the first time I’ve used a hands free kit in my car.

Form Factor: the SuperTooh buddy is a fairly good size with big buttons for easy operation specially while you are driving. It has five buttons, on the center the call button, red End Call button, and a power button, the other two are the volume up or down.
Paring: SuperTooth Buddy is easy to pair, the first time you turn it on you can simply search for it on your device and it will find it. If not the other way to pair device is turn the SuperTooth Buddy off using the power button. Press and hold the power button until the call button flashes red, you will hear a beep. It also allows you to pair it to more than one device, and it automatically detects it when you have both of the devices on next time. You should also know that the range of this hands free kit is quite far around 10 meters but sometimes even further than that. Voice Call Quality: With the echo/double voice cancellation system on the SuperTooth Buddy the call quality is good and very loud if you need it to be. You can’t stream music to it from what I found out just incase you were wondering.
Overall for the price and quality this gives you a good option for the money, I found that it last quite long on one charge if you use it moderately. I had it for over a month now and only had to charge it 3 times and I am on the road quite a bit so it gets used all the time. This really helps you keep your eyes on the road and still have a phone conversation without any distractions. The price is not high so it is a good buy. Best of all it is really easy to set up and to operate. You shouldn’t need to re-pair it unless you wipe your BlackBerry.
