    I had wanted to get a hands free device for the car after getting and I Phone. I did a lot of research and reading and decided that I didn’t want anything that dealt with the radio. I wanted to keep it simple. When my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday, this is what I asked for. I love the Blueant S4. It is easy to use and was easy to set up with my I Phone. I did purchase a longer charging cord, as the cord that came with the S4 was about 6 inches long and wouldn’t really work in my car. Now I can have the S4 charging if need be and not have to worry. No one realizes that I am on a speaker phone unless my son is in the car and decides to chime in with a hello or two. I would definitely recommend to others who are technically challenged like myself. If I can set it up and use it, anyone who can read and follow directions can do it too.

    Let me just start off by saying that everyone’s tastes would differ… and the opinions stated by myself may not be what you experience… I suggest reading more reviews… especially the critical comments about the item to help improve your decision making process…

    Now with that said, The Blueant S4 was purchased to replace the ST3 which I purchased actually 2 weeks earlier… not that I didn’t like the ST3 (I love it) but disappointingly it did not have multipoint. I believe that if the ST3 carried this feature it would be a top seller.

    It is a nicely designed speakerphone and I do like the fact that the power buttons slide on/off unlike the heavy pressing you had to do for the ST3. Also the lights are not as bright so it is great to drive with at night.Slightly larger than the ST3 but still quite light… the visor in my vehicle didn’t hang or fall everytime I hit rough stretches of road. Also really nice is the handsfree trigger where you say “blueant, speak to me” and the cool voice awaits your command… though I would have liked to have the language options available on it as the ST3. But the problem with the trigger is that there are times that you have a conversation and may just mention some words that the S4 believes sounds like the trigger phrase… and it goes waiting for you.

    Unfortunately there are some key issues that are more serious than that though… Firstly, sometimes the commands are not recognized. Now my car is loud, but has been used in other vehicles as well and when there is an incoming call in which it asks you to say “answer”, there are times it would not answer… also it says to touch the unit itself… which also is hit or miss… unless I have been doing something wrong.

    The Speaker loudness during a call could have been a little better. The trigger voice you will notice is usually louder than the call itself, but it is pretty good… not as good as the ST3 though… with the windows down, it was a little difficult to keep a sound conversation dependent of your speed.

    Another note that disappoints me is the voice dialing… I have 2 sony ericsson phones that have the system setup, however I cannot get either to voice dial through the S4… again I am not sure if this is just an issue with my phones or the S4 itself.

    But most problematic with the S4 experienced, is the connection problems with the phones if you step out the vehicle. Many times I have stepped out the car for a few minutes out of range, then when I return I would expect it to connect by saying the trigger phrase and asking if connected… many times I get no response. Touching the center button manually should get it to connect and even then there are times that it doesn’t… I have found myself on many occasions having to turn off the system and restart it just to pick up the BOTH phones I have…

    Also, blueant could have done a better job with the components that come with the package… mainly the addition of a house charger and even if not that, they could have given a LONGER cord rather than the strip of USB connector they give you… I felt like was being short changed with the S4, after receiving all the ammenities of the ST3, which comes with a longer cord, a car charger separately and a house charger.

    But all in all, it is still a suitable speakerphone for basically doing just that.. being a speakerphone. But to make this competitive in my opinion, Blueant has some homework to do. Perhaps a software update may improve some things, perhaps not, definately they need to improve their accessories available than what they give you now.

    Good: Slide power button, trigger phrase quite helpful, lights not too bright for night driving, fairly good call quality, multipoint

    BAD: Limited accessories, calls in the speaker not very loud, voice answer not always solid, voice dialing issues, reconnection to phone(s) problematic

    Gets 3 stars from me. I will continue to test this item and return with more feedback as time progresses…

    This review is from: S4 Voice Controlled Sun Visor Handsfree Speakerphone — Text-to-Speech and Speech-to Text (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    I was concerned about a battery powered Bluetooth speaker that mounts to your sun visor via magnets. Could this thing actually emit decent sound? Surprisingly yes. The BlueAnt S4 eliminated the need to drive around with an annoying little gremlin in my ear, and its wind, road, and background noise reduction really did the trick. The good news is that even if your phone doesn’t support Voice Dialing, the BlueAnt S4 syncs your list of contacts so if you get a call, Charles will announce who the call is coming from. He’ll even announce numbers that are not stored in your phone when a call is coming in. If you’re an avid Bing user, you can tell Charles to access Favorites, then Traffic, Weather, Information, etc. however the BlueAnt S4 is especially worth it if your phone supports Voice Dialing over Bluetooth. That way you’ll be able to take full advantage of hands-free interaction behind the wheel.
