V1 Package Cell phones have taken the world by storm and changed the face of how we do business.  I can remember when I saw my first "portable" cell phone and it had to be carried around in a bag.  That evolved to a Motorola "Brick" phone which my dad purchased for a lowly $1,200.  This was a handy device that provided a way for people to contact him when he was away from the office.  Things have changed and that phone is now probably in a museum some place.  Today we demand much more from our phones that just being a mere phone and the amount of time we spend on such wireless devices is increasing.  When we try and focus on holding a phone, talking to a client and driving in heavy traffic we can often get distracted and hands-free kits are not only a great idea, but also the law in some States.  Today we are looking at the BlueAnt V1 Voice Control Dual Mic Bluetooth headset and will find out if this can do more than just keep our hands on the wheel and our eyes on the road.

The V1 is the third Bluetooth headset we've looked at from BlueAnt.  We looked at the Z9 back in February of 2008 as well as the Z9i later on in July.

The V1 comes with a pair of newly designed rubber ear gels - one large and one small as well as a pair of large and small Comply™ Foam Tips.  It also uses a different mini USB connector and an adapter so that you can use any traditional mini-USB cable to charge the V1.  I applaud the inclusion of Cigar-plug and wall adapters as well.
