I decided to get rid of my landline for a saving of £204/year by replacing my landline phone with my 4G mobile phone.
(My Huawei P20 Pro Smartphone does not have an earphone socket, but came with a USB C adapter that plugs into the mobile USB C socket into which the "60s MICRO PHONE" plugs in, and it works perfectly).
I installed a guitar hanger above where my landline phone used to sit which works really well as a secure holder for the phone, and connects with my mobile phone that rests on the shelf that was used for my landline phone. (see photo).
The reason that I was looking for a handset like this was because it occurred to me that using my mobile phone more at home would mean greater exposure to microwave radiation.
So after a bit of Googling I discovered this retro handset on Amazon which arrived today, and I am well pleased! 😁😁😁
I was initially skeptical about the quality and performance of this handset because I had read very negative reviews of similar handsets that had a wireless/Bluetooth connection with on/off switch and volume control but quality of the speaker was seriously criticised.
By contrast reviews of this "60s MICRO" were very positive. And I received a prompt and reassuring response to an email that I sent to the Seller.
The handset itself has a quality and solid feel to it. This is NOT a cheap plastic TOY.
There are no buttons to press and no batteries. You select 'Answer' or 'Reject' on your mobile. When the call is ended it automatically closes the connection when the Caller hangs up.
I've made a couple of calls today to mobiles and the call quality at both ends was good.
I was concerned that I wouldn't hear the "60s MICRO'phone ring when plugged in, but it is my mobile that gives a good clear, loud, ring, so no way I would miss a call. And both phone handset and mobile phone can be taken anywhere in the house just like a cordless phone. I am able to access the Internet on my mobile whilst the "60s MICRO" is plugged in.
I have also used the handset with WhatsApp and connection and sound quality were good.
This 'simple' handset does everything that my landline does, and much more. And you don't have to be technically minded to use it. It couldn't be simpler. Most importantly it reduces exposure to microwave radiation when making frequent or lengthy telephone calls.
The missus won't admit it, bus she spends half the day on the phone with family & friends back in Ireland. Having gotten used to The Whatsapp and The Messenger, I was getting worried the old brain might be getting fried from the smartphone, the samy type she used to give out to us for spending the day on. So I went looking for a handset. We used to have a wifi handset for Skype (remember the ould Skype) Anyhow it was a curse for staying connected, so ended up binning it.
Anyhow now she's used to the mobile, and loving her super red handset (direct line to Trump in the sight house) I can now get rid of the landline, thus saving a fortune on international calls, for only about 30 euro including Post.
But I'll miss the smell of frying brain though!
Physically it seems well made, heavy-ish, sound quality is lacking a bit of bass compared to the phone itself but not a problem, otherwise it's loud & clear (volume is controlled by the phone itself) and very easy to use.
I have used this on my smartphone and my laptop; works both although it felt a bit weird to listen to music "over the phone". Quality of the sound is great, just like one may be used to from a headset. People on the other end didn't notice I was using it.
Customer service is very friendly and promptly answers questions.
Die Verwendung ist denkbar einfach: Kabel in den Klinke-Anschluss einstecken und schon kann man den Tonausgang und das Mikrofon über den Hörer nutzen. Der ausgegebene Ton ist einwandfrei und laut genug, auch die Mikrofon-Qualität ist hochwertig. Meines Ermessens nach hat der Hörer das ideale Gewicht, schwer genug für ein gewisses Gefühl der Wertigkeit, aber auch nicht so schwer, dass einem der Arm beim Telefonieren irgendwann abzufallen scheint. Die Verarbeitung ist top, keine scharfen Kanten, optimale Spaltmaße, ausgezeichnetes Kabel.
Perfekt wäre der Hörer mit einem Rufannahme-/Auflege-Knopf. Den gibt es leider nicht.
Ich besitze den Hörer mittlerweile seit 3 Jahren und er funktioniert immer noch ausgezeichnet.
Spiele immer noch mit dem Vorhaben, irgendwann in der Straßenbahn mit diesem Hörer mein Gespräch anzunehmen. Hörer aus der Jackentasche und loserzählen...die Blicke wären wohl unbezahlbar. ;-)
- Ergonomics: Comfortable weight and size. Does not heat up with prolonged use.
- Function: Absolutely excellent; far better than I was expecting for the price. The speaker is loud and clear, and the mic seems to have really great background noise mitigation.
