Review of Moshi Moshi 03 Bluetooth Headset
In the box:
There are many wireless headsets in the world and Moshi is not something new. Many years ago I came across an old phone's receiver as if taken away from the base with the dialer. The receiver was a real Bluetooth headset. Today we will speak about the more advanced accessory. You are unlikely to buy it yourself, but will be happy to get it as a present.
The package is interesting and features traditional Japanese elements and colors. My sample was partly wrinkled, but do not pay attention to it. In the box you get a base, receiver, several cables and a charger. A microUSB can also be used to charge other equipment. The mat is made of rubber with the logo of the manufacturer Native Union. I have never come across this brand name, but you can study their portfolio on the website. They also offer similar accessories with cradles and speakers. It will take some time to analyze.
Now let's concentrate on the device. It was designed by a person named David Turpin and his interesting ideas can be accessed here. The gadget looks minimalistic. A rectangular base has no extra elements, while the receiver looks like a futuristic gadget from the Star Track. Probably science fiction writers viewed future communication devices in such a vein. The gadget is stylish and the build is high quality. Platforms for the receiver are covered with rubber, while two sockets are required for charging. A microUSB jack can be used for a charger or a USB cable. The receiver can be held with a shoulder, which is an improvement from the phone.
Apart from the packaging I would like to mention an illustrative quick guide. There you can find such an advice as "Don`t panic, pair it!" among other things.
In general the package, the design and certain details are quite interesting. The model does not look weird.
On the inside there are volume controls and one multifunctional key, which is responsible for answering calls, activating the second line and other typical functions. Interestingly, you can end the conversation by picking up the receiver and putting it back, which once again resembles old phones. Light indicators are located on the other side of the receiver and the base. They look nice and do not irritate.
The headset can be connected simultaneously to two devices. For example, these can be a mobile phone and a laptop. A combination of MacBook Air 11 and iPhone 4 did not work, but they same laptop coupled with Blackberry 9780 performed well. Accordingly, this approach can be interesting for those who are planning to use Moshi at all times.
The manufacturer claims up to 6 hours of talk time and120 hours on standby. As I have already mentioned there is a useful microUSB jack here.
Phone connection and sound quality
I predominantly tested the headset with iPhone 4 and after the first run the device goes into the pairing mode automatically. It took seconds to establish the connection and everything was stable without any disruptions. If you leave the reception zone, the headset switches off automatically and connects again when you return. Bluetooth 2.1 c EDR is supported as well. The sound quality is good and your interlocutors will hardly ever notice that you use a headset. Moreover, the microphone is located near the mouth. The speaker is even too loud. It is a joy to work with the device in an office setting. The only issue here is that at first it takes time to remember the location of the speaker and the microphone. Bear it in mind that the contacts must be in the bottom section.
I cannot compare Moshi Moshi 03 with other devices and its price fluctuates from $180 to $360 and can be often found in a souvenirs shop. On the factual side we get a nice packaging, attractive design, good sound quality and an opportunity to connect with two devices at a time. The operation time is fine and it is not vital as you can always connect the base to the power supply. All in all we have an intriguing device and it is one of the best gifts, though you will probably not purchase it for yourself.
