    Well, This is not as well known as others, such as Jabra etc. I found no reviews on this before buying it , but after looking at t Well, This is not as well known as others, such as Jabra etc. I found no reviews on this before buying it , but after looking at the specs I decided to give it a try. I tried many speakerphones including just using my Macbook Pro, Jabra etc The issue with all of them is, they have 1-2 Mics tops. the Philips has 4 mics!! They work excellent for someone who is required to be on many conference calls, but is naturally a quieter person (me). I tried several quicktime recordings and compared this to Jabra, and the Native Macbook Pro mics, this was the most amplified and featured the best noise cancellation, even when speaking in a very conversational tone. Also, it is tiny, about the size of an AppleTV, this was important for travel.

    I also like the fact, I can switch it manually from USB to bluetooth. which means I can leave it plugged in to my Macbook Pro , but answer a call via Bluetooth on my iPhone, others do not do this. Once they are plugged in via USB, it overrides BT. I also tried a FaceTime Audio call to experience the "HD Audio", It was nothing short of fantastic, literally like someone is sitting beside you. ( but you can only expect that with HD audio) Honestly the hardest thing to get used to with this, is NOT speaking up, because you do not need to.

    The ONLY downside to this device, is the price. It's pricey!. but if you're like me with 4-6 hours of meetings per day, it's totally worth it. I would rather pay $20.00 more for 8x the quality. because after trying others, it IS that much better , i compared some audio recordings in quicktime to a Jabra SPEAK, and Macbook pro native Mic. this is hands down, better audio quality, Better noise cancelling due to the multiple mics. etc.

    Had an issue getting the USB connection to be recognized with my rMBP, easily fixed by swapping the cable to a different port and back.

Most of the time however, it doesn't. It usually sounds horribly garbled and thin on the other end. Have lost multiple important business calls as a result. As soon as I switch back to the built in iPhone speaker and mic the call improves. Look for something else.

It works ok with Flash, but freezes any playback in Silverlight (Netflix, Amazon On Demand, etc)... bazaar. I called Philips Support and they said: Oh, well! We did not know that, I guess it is incompatible with Mac Maverick with Silverlight. The workaround is to unplug USB from WeCall and continue to enjoy your video unless you want to return WeCall. This product cannot get upgraded with firmware.

    I got this speaker because I'm beginning to find it a recurring problem that most offices do not have speaker phones - just break I got this speaker because I'm beginning to find it a recurring problem that most offices do not have speaker phones - just break out areas and hot desks. Which can be a real pain!!

    So far I have found out the following things using this device

    1. Very compact and easy to carry
    2. Audio quality is comparable with a normal office 'spider' speakerphone. Certainly loud enough.
    3. Audio quality at the other end is variable. But better than a Blackberry or iPhone

    Does a great job in my view.
