What is the best hands free kit for your car? We pick from eight visor mounts and earpieces
The ban on mobile phone use at the wheel has been in force for over a decade, so there are no excuses – especially with Bluetooth hands-free kits now so affordable and easy to use.
These devices are most readily available as units that mount on your car’s sun visor or as earpieces – and we’ve tested four of each. Both options eliminate the need to touch your phone, and all eight of our test kits work with voice interaction and simple one-touch button control.
How we tested them
A hands-free kit has to allow you to stay focused on the road, so we awarded top marks to the units that enabled us to make a call with minimal device interaction – best achieved via voice recognition. Earpieces had to be comfortable (we wore them for two hours) and visor kits easy to mount. Sound quality was important, as was price, taken from a range of retailers at the time of writing.
Great sound and a refined feel make the Jabra MOTION earpiece our overall winner. Plantronics’ K100 was the best visor kit, due to its FM abilities, ahead of the no-nonsense Parrot Minikit Neo.
