Hands On: Callpod’s Drone Bluetooth adapter

Posted in Review by Jeff on December 12th, 2008

Callpod Drone Bluetooth Adapter Hands on reviewThe Drone, a Class-1 Bluetooth adapter brought to us by the Bluetooth obsessed people over at Callpod, packs quite a bit of convenience in such a small package. We had heard talk of the Drone since back in March and the device launched just last month. We were lucky enough to get a sample to try out and see just how well it performed. The Drone boasts a 100 meter (328 foot) range when paired with other Class-1 Bluetooth devices, and will also increase the range at which Class-2 devices will communicate. CallPod states that the device is so simple you “plug-n-play, then walk away” which is pretty true…

One absolutely brilliant aspect of the drone is its ability to auto-magically pair with a headset or headphones (such as the Callpod Dragon), eliminating the need to type zeroes into a prompt making it incredibly easy to use, saves time and avoids inconveniencing you. And out of the box the drone is intended to be used in this fashion, converting your Bluetooth headset into a mic and speaker combo, making it ideal for gamers or people who find themselves regular Skype users. The drone performed wonderfully when paired with a Jawbone aiding in surviving the zombie horde in Left 4 Dead, and as advertised will swap over to Skype if you receive an incoming call. It also gives you a feeling of liberation when you can wander around while streaming music directly to your headset.

Callpod Drone Bluetooth adapterThe folks at Callpod have now officially come out with the Callpod Drone Bluetooth 2.0 adapter we had heard about much earlier this year. The adapter connects to your PC or Mac through a standard USB port and provides streaming audio for headsets or speakers without installing any software or any complicated pairing.

In fact, you can be streaming music to your wireless Bluetooth speakers and the device will automatically switch to your Bluetooth headset when a VoIP calls comes in from tools like Skype. If that’s not enough, CallPod is boasting that the Drone has a Class-1 range of 100 meters. We’re expecting to get a chance to try this out for ourselves in the near future, allowing us to take advantage of the Bluetooth headsets we already have instead of a mess of wires to take VoIP calls.
