Much like Wi-Fi connectivity Bluetooth wireless devices have gained significant ground compared to their wired counterparts and although again consumers shouldn't expect the same results between those two types there's no denying that having less wires around is a good thing. Now as many of you are aware I’m always on the lookout for new Bluetooth wireless headsets since i enjoy listening to my favorite music while at the office, on the road or even when at home without disturbing everyone around me. Still even after having tested a large number of Bluetooth headsets i still haven't found the one to be our point of comparison for all others. SuperTooth released a very interesting Bluetooth wireless headset a couple of years ago called the FREEDOM and today we're going to be taking a thorough look to see if this is the one we've been all waiting for so long.
SuperTooth, headquartered in France, is a world leading manufacturer of Bluetooth speakerphones and portable accessories, with a presence in more than 50 countries. In 2004, SuperTooth created the concept of a Bluetooth speakerphone that could be clipped to a car’s sun visor providing hands-free phone call capability. Today the Bluetooth expert is continuing to pioneer audio accessories that are powerful, reliable and affordable, also integrating new NFC technology. SuperTooth owns its own factory, managing and operating the entire production and supply chain – from initial designs and concepts, to the manufacturing and packaging.
First of all I’d like to mention something regarding this review. SuperTooth did send us the FREEDOM wireless Bluetooth headset back in 2015 but between us moving all our samples to another place and the amount of samples we received since then the headset was misplaced and thus we finally got our hands on it last month. For that i feel that i do need to apologize to SuperTooth and since I’ve always believed that transparency is the way to go i wanted all of you to know. With that out of the way we can focus on the FREEDOM a closed-type headset that features two 40mm dynamic drivers, Bluetooth v4.0 connectivity with AD2P, AptX and NFC (Near Field Communications), Omni-directional microphone and a lithium-ion battery pack which gives it up to 15 hours of music playback (unfortunately at this time we don't have detailed specifications for the drivers, microphone and Li-Ion battery pack).
