Parrot Minikit Neo 2 HD is the second edition of the speakerphone for the discerning. Do you and this model will appeal to drivers?
Once you start work with the device, it occurred to me that I hold in your hand very decent equipment. Great fit components, the use of high-quality plastic and thoughtful ergonomics make the Parrot Minikit Neo 2 HD is really solidly made-gadget. Stylistically, there is no fault anything – Neo 2 HD has work best, so designers do not puzzled too much on sophisticated design and materials. The device looks simple and neat. It was made entirely of frosted plastic, only the sides can be seen shining halos. Front is a speaker membrane, placed just above its buttons and knobs are responsible for approving and rejecting a call. LED ring around the find, to help us hit the appropriate button in the dark. There was also a place on the microphone, which, as in the previous model, is at the top of the structure. The sides of the device have been skillfully developed – on the right hand placed microUSB slot and minimalist LED showing the status of the battery during charging. On the left – a three-stage switch is responsible for turning on / off, and information on the current battery level. Rear of this unit is mainly a huge clip / holder – is so flexible that it adapts to the shape of the cover glass and rigid enough to not fall away from her. Placed on his back also very tacky rubber panel. There is no question that the device slipped while driving, even after the cruel potholes.
The quality of the calls is definitely the most important part of any kit. As befits Parrot, Neo 2 HD can be a role model for other devices of this type. The manufacturer boasts that the device supports HD Voice standards. Huge membrane guarantees high resonance (our measurement tools showed more than 100 dB), while maintaining impeccable quality and clarity of the sound. During a call, you can adjust the volume level – to the knob.with surgical precision microphone captures voice while removing background noise. The efficacy of the entire system is the mass of various improvements – 3W speakers, omnidirectional microphone, Parrot NR3 noise reduction and full duplex. All this makes the talks through Neo 2 HD is a real pleasure, and there is no way that any information lost on us or call.
The battery is another of the strengths of Neo 2 HD – the set includes a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 1000 mAh. Its capabilities have made considerable impression on me. The equipment allows up to 10 hours continual conversation in standby mode and can withstand up to 6 months. For more than a week of tests, I played with Neo 2 HD basically constantly and equipment without major problems endured five days of work on a single charge. The kit, Parrot adds USB car charger and over meter cable. A full charge using the charger factory will not take us more than three hours.
Neo 2 HD is a highly mobile device, thus, you can whip out and put in another car. This is a very convenient solution for people who do not always use one mode of transport. The same set of services is fabulously simple – the knob is responsible for menu navigation, green and red button accept or cancel the operation. Of course Neo 2 HD says that the options currently choose.Neo 2 HD supports called "magic words" and the voice control functions. The magic words are responsible for voice rejection or answer a call – the phone rings, Parrot says his formula of telling us a call comes in, we say "answer" or "reject". Instant and childishly easy to use. Along with the phone connected to the device, send him your list of contacts – all this without the use of hands to find the interlocutor and start the connection. Simply click on the green handset, and Neo 2 HD will ask us, we would like to call someone. The system works very (all too) well. If we used a contact name hyphen, asterisk, slash, or any other character, also we have to terminate. I would add that the Parrot sometimes lost if the names are similar. If for some reason we fail to select the desired contact, voice, we can use the dial – first select the appropriate letter of the alphabet, and then the caller. Everything has been thought out and buttoned up the last button. The icing on the cake is dedicated, a free application that allows the configuration of the device using a smartphone. With the program, you get new opportunities – from the moment we set "drive time" (Neo 2 HD remind us that we should take a break), the application will also facilitate us to find the car in the parking lot. Kit also works as an ordinary speaker – nada quietly listening to music while driving or help in navigating the city. Interestingly, the device is capable of handling two smartphones at the same time.
Parrot Minikit Neo 2 HD is definitely a high-end equipment. This is not what is true and perfect product mishaps happen to him during dialing, but the quality of the talks, decent performance, functionality and ease of use are worth every dollar you spend. We recommend – even the most picky customers. 😉
