I have been trying out the Blinc M1 bluetooth headset in my helmet for the last couple of months and so wanted to give a final assesment of how it has been to live with for that time as there have been a few problems along the way.
The update to this review is that in the last month the bluetooth unit stopped working, this happened on a very wet day and on my ride to work the bluetooth was working, on my ride home it was not. After trying drying it and charging it there was still no joy – I therefore (a little tentatively) approached theÂ supplier (thru ebay) to ask about getting the problem resolved. I was contacted back and wasÂ even phoned byÂ Moto Hart (the importer) and asked to send it to them, within a week it had been returned back to me again. There was then a small problem with the headset cables where the connection of a wire came apart and so one earphone did not work, again I contacted the supplier, I was called again by Moto Hart and this time they just sent me a new headset!! InÂ a previous review item about the Blinc M1 headset one of the problems I mentionned was the length of the wire for the headset, and this seems to have been resolved as the new headset had a much longer cable.
NOW – This offers the opportunity to say that the Blinc M1 Bluetooth Headset breaks. I made the point therefore of asking the seller of any problems that they have had with these units and he informed me this was the first of many Blinc M1 bluetooth headsets that he had had any problems with. I therefore and concentrating on the how well the problem was dealt with by Moto Hart!Â When I have had problems in the past with items of any type there is always the thought that taking the item back is often not worth the effort but this did give us a new sign of faith that Moto Hart really did get it right and with no arguement that replaced the broken items.
So, I have been using this kit for over 2 months and I still have to say, especially for the price, that this is an excellent bluetooth item and would happily recommend it! If you have not had bluetooth before then this is a great item to try out as it show you many of the benefits of the bluetooth helmet kit for a GREAT price. If you are looking at bluetooth for a first time then rather than getting a Â£300 bluetooth helmet we would suggest getting a kit like this and try it out to see what you like and dont like about the technology. Available for about Â£80 this is steal!!!read more 0 comment
