Honeywell Airlite 900

These days it seems that cellular telephones are as commonplace as Starbucks, and motorists are communicating while behind the wheel. It shouldn't come as a surprise that twenty-four states currently enforce restrictions on cell phone use while driving. This is where the hands-free market has exploded, with numerous Bluetooth headsets making it to store shelves. In this article, Benchmark Reviews takes the opportunity to test drive the Airlite 900 Bluetooth speakerphone accessory by Honeywell.

We've all seen the business professional walking around seemingly talking to them themselves with a Bluetooth headset plugged into their ear. I suppose that's fine for driving, too, but it's not always convenient to fit the device into your ear canal while negotiating the dangerous freeways during rush hour. Honeywell observed the need for something safer, something more accessible, and they produced the Airlite 900 as a direct result.

The Bluetooth 2.0 Airlite's list of specifications include a range of up to 10 meters (33ft), wireless compatibility with a frequency of 2400-2483.5MHz, the talk time of up to 10 hours standby time of up to 250 hours. Its tiny size of 3.5 in. by 2 in. x .2 in. weighs just 1oz, which makes it very portable, and together with the high quality volume and bundled accessories the Airlite's just perfect for the car. The most convenient feature of this device is the access to its controls.
