Specifications

The SuperTooth HD can mount on your desk or it can mount to the visor of your car with a metal clip that attaches to the magnet backed hands free device. It is easy to pair and can be paired with two phones at one time. The SuperTooth HD will last for 20 hours of talk and 1000 hours on standby.

In Use

I am a big fan of hands free kits in my car for several reasons. In my state, you can get a ticket for talking on a mobile phone in a school zone. I also have a car with a manual transmission and there is no way to drive in traffic and talk at the same time. I also use my iPhone for GPS navigation and you can't hear the prompts over the iPhones internal speaker.

The SuperTooth HD fixes all of those issues. Pairing to my iPhone 4 was a snap and required no code. Once paired, the SuperTooth HD worked very well. I'm not sure if it was a quirk of my iPhone 4 or a quirk of the SuperTooth HD but one bothersome thing about the system was that after a long period of inactivity the first word or so in the voice prompts for navigation wasn’t clear enough to understand. Instead of "turn left," I would hear "n left" because it took a second for the SuperTooth HD to wake up.

Once it was awake, the directions were very clear and the powerful speakers meant even in my noisy car I could hear with the volume at about half setting. The big knob on the SuperTooth HD is very easy to use. The knob rotates to control volume and is the single control for answering calls.

Press when a call is incoming and it answers and if press for three seconds and you can decline a call. If you press for one second, you active voice commands and can dial your phone with your voice. The SuperTooth HD also works with a service that is free for six months that allows you to dictate your emails or texts while driving and can read incoming texts and emails to you as well that is activated by pressing the envelope button.

The SuperTooth HD stays put on the visor of my car. I found the clamp was too tight for the thick visors in my 2012 Mustang and left an indention on the visor. With months of use, I would bet that indention would be permanent. You can stream music using your SuperTooth HD, but it doesn't sound nearly as good as using your car stereo. The mic is very good and you can be heard clearly on the other end of your call. The people I spoke with didn't know I was using a hands free kit, which I think is the best complement you can give one of these things. In Europe, the SuperTooth HD sells for 99 euro.

Verdict

Pros

  • Lots of volume
  • Hands free support

Cons

  • Clipped words after long periods of idle time
  • Clip might make a permanent dent on your visor
 

Conclusion

The SuperTooth HD is a very nice hands free car kit that will make driving much easier and offers many features that may make you a safer driver.
