Jabra recently unveiled both the EASYCALL and CRUISER2, and I got a chance to try out the latter. The CRUISER2 is your basic Bluetooth speaker, and is very similar to the Freeway that I reported about a few weeks ago.
It even has that clip that allows it to live on your car’s visor. This one comes with a mini USB to USB charging cable, and a car adapter.
The CRUISER2 is able to connect 2 Bluetooth devices simultaneously, and has dual microphone technology for excellent sound. I will have to say that the sound is good, but I felt the FREEWAY does it better.
It does have something that the FREEWAY doesn’t have with an FM transmitter to wirelessly sync with the car stereo via A2DP. As for the the Talk time specs, they are 14 hours, with 20 days available on standby.
Additional features include the voice guidance of caller ID, battery status, along with the set-up. Speaking of set-up, I will have to say that the CRUISER2 synced with my smartphone fast. It feels like Jabra gets quicker syncing with every product they make. Pretty soon, their Bluetooth devices will link up before I turn them on.
If you want the CRUISER2, you should be able to get it for a price of about $60-90. I’m seeing varying prices in various places. You can find more information about it here.
