How to choose a Bluetooth Speaker use for hands-free phone call?


I'm tired of holding the phone to my head and also can't hear the caller in speakerphone mode. So I need a Bluetooth Speaker which has a built-in mic so they work for hands-free calling.Do someone used iPop? Is it worth to buy?

Is this for a car or use at home or office? Amazon has a bunch of gizmos if your car didn't come with bluetooth. You would probably be happier if you looked at https://www.crutchfield.com/S-0tah9RLRX20/ for your vehicle and just get a new stereo with all the new features. I saw this for desktop use http://mashable.com/2012/09/02/iphon.../#QKV.QOXRGZqH

I tried looking up iPOP and found nothing.

You might try backing up the phone and resetting the phone to defaults, maybe some setting got messed up which dropped the volume on speaker phone calls.

Almost all Bluetooth speakers of today have mic/speakerphone support, and they're relatively cheap too.

are you aware that this is a Linux forum?
you seem to be refering to Apple software for smartphones?

Amazon has many bluetooth headsets with mics.

I find stereo headsets more clearer to understand a caller than mono headsets.

I don't know much about bluetooth speakers headsets for ipods and iphones as I don't have one. The Apple Airpods cost around $200 more or less.

Amazon has clones of these airpods much cheaper from $30 to $100. Just read the customer reviews if they are good to buy.

Good luck shopping
