Prior to my accident, I [Mark Felling, Broadened Horizons President] taught test automation and quality verification techniques to cell phone manufacturers like Motorola & Samsung. As an independent consultant, a few months ago I personally tested the new, unique multipairing features of this headset and ensured voice-recognition quality with my Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop with built-in Bluetooth for the smaller manufacturer of this new headset incorporating the latest Bluetooth technology. Due to multiple inquieries I am making it available through Broadened Horizons.

I have the headset up and running. Actually, I'm enjoying it very much. I feel it is doing a better job than the wired in headset. I was a little apprehensive about using voice recognition with Bluetooth in Windows Vista, but it seems to work very well.
I want to thank you for all the time and trouble you have taken with me. I certainly have run into a lot of snags, and you got me out of them just fine.
I am using the headset in my ear, because that seems to be the easiest for me to use. I still run into problems, but so far I have been able to work them out.
Thank you for all the time and trouble you have spent working with me. I am very grateful.
