Samsung WEP-490 (Corby) headset review

How to promote Bluetooth headsets? There are many different paths. Someone is investing serious money in marketing, someone is investing in retail motivation, someone is hoping that it will go by itself, but that's just it does not go anywhere. With the sale of Bluetooth accessories, everything is very complicated. A bunch of nuances. A topic for a separate article, but it only needs to be written on the order of a company that has decided to spend money on supporting their products. In addition, there are more and more new trends in this small accessory world. For example, here's what Samsung came up with. Wire Design Giraffe Toy phone series spend huge amounts of money on advertising , one of the latest examples is Samsung Corby. So why not take advantage of the notoriety and introduce an add-on of the same name, or even a line of add-ons? The approach is sound, correct, allows you to kill several birds with one stone. As practice shows, even the first pancake called WEP-490 did not come out lumpy, but feels quite comfortable in retail. At the end of the year, in summing up the results on accessories, I wrote about this suddenly emerging trend and I was right - the company will continue and develop it. It made sense for Corby to release an inexpensive Bluetooth headset. Perhaps it is worth making wired headphones in a bright color, a series of covers, both in fabric and silicone. But! After all, you can extend the experience and develop a series of accessories under the WiTu brand, including more expensive items in the line.While I think it's better to start experimenting with Corby, it's an interesting experience and one that other companies, especially Nokia, should emulate. The Finns have so many accessories that it’s not like me, damn it. It would be time to make groups of goods under the line of phones, give them names and make life easier for the consumer. Moreover, all this falls under advertising - it was quite possible to release a line of "special" musical additions along with X6 on the sly.

Design, construction

The appearance of the headset retains the features of the Corby phone, but I would like to draw your attention to an interesting detail. The phone has a replaceable cover, the top is black. In addition to yellow, you can get pink. The headset is different: the top is black, the bottom is yellow. Apparently, they sensibly considered that it was not worth conducting experiments, for many, such a “clip” simply would not work for a number of reasons. Especially in Russia, the country of eternal blackness. But the bottom is cheerful, yellow, all decorum is preserved, and rightly so. The size of the headset is small, except for yellow there are other colors suitable for the phone. The girls, I think, will like the device. The charging connector is covered with a plug, the microphone is located on the nose of the device. The design uses high-quality lacquered plastic, prints on the front are not too noticeable.

Wearing style, comfort

The headset can be worn with or without a bow, it is easy to remove, does not rub, does not tire. The nozzle on the speaker is small, also does not cause any discomfort. Without a bow, the device sat quietly in my ear even with sudden movements.

The only point - it was worth making a loop for the strap, for such a product it is simply necessary. The thing is addressed primarily to young people, it is a kind of "cool gadget", so many would probably want to wear it in plain sight. Although, maybe I'm mistaken.

Management

They tried to make the headset as convenient as possible for any user, so there was a separate button to turn it on, located on the end. Nearby is a small indicator light. Samsung still does not get rid of the vicious practice of lights and other effects, all the more surprising that an exception was made for WEP-490. A small neat indicator, from the side it is not very noticeable, it lights up blue or red, depending on the situation. After the first turn on, the headset is ready for use. On the front there is a large multifunctional button, I think everything is clear about its purpose. Volume buttons on the side. Everything is convenient, everything is fine, there are no problems.

Food

The kit comes with a very good mains charger with microUSB, you will definitely need it not only with WEP-490. Claimed battery life is six hours of talk time, one hundred and eighty in standby mode. Quite normal indicators for an inexpensive product, the device charges from the network for an hour and a half.

Phone connection, sound quality

In a good way, I should have also taken a Corby phone, but there is no time. Therefore, testing took place in tandem with an enemy product called the iPhone. After the first power-up, the pairing is automatic. The Bluetooth 2.1 profile with EDR is supported, the connection with the phone is reliable. Voice quality is good in most situations, and the WEP-490 can be used in a car. In the office, she behaves well until people start talking loudly.

Conclusions

In a good way, the price of this headset should be less than a thousand rubles, because it is addressed primarily to buyers of inexpensive Corby. However, in some stores it costs one and a half thousand, in my opinion, this is expensive. The little thing is special, the owners of the phone may like it, other consumers can be attracted just by the price. Among the advantages, I will attribute the appearance (young people will like it), ergonomics, normal operating time, good voice quality, and the presence of additional colors. I did not find any serious cons.

By the way, I don't quite understand why WEP-490 is not in Euroset? They are just made for each other!
