Parrot offers a nice little hands free kit


The Parrot Minikit+ uses Bluetooth 2.0 EDR and can connect to two smartphones at one time. It can store 2000 contacts and has a rechargeable battery good for over 12 hours of talk and 15 days on standby. It measures 4.33 x 2.36 x 1.14. The device is available this month, but at the time of writing isn't on the official Parrot website.

In Use

The Parrot Minikit+ is a very small little hands free device that is made for use at your desk and in the car. The device has storage for up to 200 contacts from your address book. When the person that calls is in your address book, it can tell you who is calling as well. It will work with all Bluetooth smartphone and will pair with two devices at one time.

Ten devices can be paired with the Parrot Minikit+. The driver can tell the Parrot Minikit+ which of the two devices paired to it is the main device and assign a different ring tone to each device. That is cool because if you have a personal and a work phone you will know without looking which is ringing.

In use the Parrot Minikit+ works very well. The audio quality makes it easy to hear the caller on the other end of your call. The mic picks up your voice and very little background noise making the Parrot Minikit+ great for cars that might not be so quiet.

You can also use the device to hear the spoken prompts from your smartphone for navigation or for listening to music. I don’t think the speaker is of the quality you will want for music, but it's great for navigation if your phones speaker lacks the volume to hear clearly. The Parrot Minikit+ paired with my iPhone and my Android device with no issues.



  • Good call quality
  • Small


  • No real standout features


The Parrot Minikit+ is a very nice little hands free kit with no major issues.
