Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Not Recommended For Anyone
from Gillespie, IL
I bought this so that I could use my touch phone when making phone calls. It worked fine, for all of 5 mins. When I tried to adjust the volume on it, the button wen INSIDE the handset and I couldn't get it back out. There is no way of opening the item to be able to correct it. So, I now have a USELESS piece of junk sitting here, as it's not worth the hassle of sending it back.
Hearing Quality greatly diminished
from Pittsburgh, PA
Great price, good quality and heft... Nice cord, but the hearing quality is horrible with my iPhone 5
Waste of money!!!

Bought for my elderly mother!!
Mom has a cell phone but she would cut me off when pressing it to her ear to hear me. Hope this will take care of the problem. Christmas gift but I will recommend because it is an unusual item for an unusual problem and priced right.
Not happy. Speaker cheap,cheap,cheap! Can not hear with it.

I ordered this for my Aunt. She is elderly and it would be easier for her to hold. Holding it was perfect. To bad you can not HEAR it!

how to fix the problem,read here
By fix it myself
at first everyone told me that it sounded like i was in a tunnel. so i took the head set apart. drill the plastic plugs out to get to the screws. and i drilled out the single pinhole in the microphone end. drill it out to the size of the microphone under the plastic, about 3/8 hole. after that everyone said it sounded fine.i tried to send it back for a refund, but i was over the limit. so it sat in my garage for months. then i decided to modify it. the company should fix the problem ...... it had a lot of reviews on this problem.

Happy it Works
from Newark, Ohio
This product makes using my cell phone so much easier and when I'm in a long conversation my hand doesn't get tired holding my flip cell phone. I could imagine this would be good for someone to use if they have arthritis, just gives your hand something easier to hold onto vs a slim phone.

This looked like the perfect solution for me. My hand cramps when holding the cell phone after a while. When I use a regular corded phone however, I cradle the handset on my shoulder while talking. That way I can type or take notes etc... When I attempted to "cradle" this phone, it would NOT stay put - it slipped right off my shoulder. The plastic this is composed of is just very smooth and slippery, plus it is very lightweight. Typical handsets are heavier and stay "cradled" more easily.If you are simply going to hold the handset and talk - this would work for you just fine I think. Might want to verify it will work with your phone, however...
