Connect to Sun – with this slogan, Iqua makes advertising for his Bluetooth headset that goes for 59 euros over the counter.

The background: On the front of a solar cell is installed, the battery independently charge can power – at Nichtgebrach you put the headset simply on the window ledge, the table or the dashboard, so it is always charged and ready for use.

Top cabinet with light obesity

Iqua has been visibly trouble processing: the housing is very robust, give clear feedback to the control buttons – that is 19 out of 20 possible points.

But unfortunately the earpiece has got something gross and the headset sits not quite so sure, with 15.8 grams, the Sun brings neatly weight on the precision scale, which complicates a longer wearing and unpleasant turns out in the long term.

Attaching the optional bar is recommended in any case: thanks to elastic plastic he adapts individually to the shape of each ear, which noticeably increases wearing comfort.

Cut off in transmission direction

In practical use, that fell a little Iqua Sun: the testers used the volume control, it came to unpleasant interruptions in conversation. Yet the speech intelligibility in order, although the headset in transmission direction sounds somewhat choppy.

ERGO: Who much phone, pleased with the integrated solar cell, bought this comfort however by a relatively serious design of the headset.
