Best Cell Phone Car Speakerphones in 2020



Aigoss Handsfree Bluetooth 4.2 for Cell Phone, Car Speaker Kit with 2 Phones Connection Simultaneous, Support Wireless Hands Free Calling/ Siri & Google Assistant / TF Card Review:


I've owned these before, and the volume never was very good on them. This product though, is really good. I honestly though some of the reviews on here were faked because of the price, but it turns out to be true.

Bluetooth was easy to setup (held down the M button, didn't even need the instructions).

The volume does go very high, but don't max the volume or the speakers will start vibrating.

I tested the microphone by calling my wife in the other room, and while on the road, and she says that I sound better than I do with my old one. If I had to say anything about the mic, I would say make sure it's not obstructed by anything (I accidentally had it resting on the mic hole when testing it the first time)

It's shortfall was that there wasn't volume control except through my phone. The other buttons (plus and minus I think) cycled through my songs instead.

If your car is an older car, and you're looking for a cheap solution instead of buying a whole new radio system, I'd suggest this.



Nulaxy Bluetooth FM Transmitter for Car, 1.8" Color Screen Radio Adapter W QC3.0 & 5V/2.4A Charging, Handsfree Call, Support microSD Card, Aux Play, EQ Modes - KM18 [Upgraded Version] Black Matte Review:


If you have the previous Km18 transmitter, don't hesitate and do the upgrade. The previous model was awesome in every aspect but against the new version, it comes short. The first KM18 was only to play music because to make calls it didn't work. The person on the other side couldnt hear me. Even when I recorded a voice message to send in WhatsApp, I was not able to hear myself if I press play to hear the message.

In the upgraded version, that problem is gone. Now I can receive my calls with no problem. The other side can hear me perfectly and for that alone, the upgrade is justified. But, thats not all. The sound now is slightly better, there's no static at all never, it connects to your phone in one second, the color screen is brilliant and the fast charger is a must have now days.

If you don't own a bluetooth transmitter this is the one you are searching for. And if you already own one of the previous models, I stronly suggest you the upgrade. It's now better in everyway. Now I can used it to make calls and I love it even more.



Handsfree Bluetooth Car Kit AUTO Power ON Visor with Motion Sensor, Wirefree Hands in Car Speakerphone Kits for Smartphone Devices ,Free car Charger - Black Review:


This wireless speaker works amazingly. I live in Tennessee where the new law is hands free which means you cannot have your phone in your hand while driving at all. So when I seen this I thought wow this could be perfect. It has actually blown my expectations out of the water!! this is no plastic cheap speaker This is a nice heavy metal speaker. It automatically connects to my phone ever since the first time I connected it now when I get in my car it automatically connects as soon as I turn on the car you can set it to what language you would like it comes in four languages you can use it as a speaker to talk into when someone calls you or if you don’t have a radio in your car you can use it for music or even if you do have a radio in your car you can use it as an extra speaker! It stays connected, with some of the Bluetooth speakers I have used before sometimes my phone will not stay connected to it I have not had that problem this is a great simple little device that could make your laugh and your driving a lot more simpler and safer !



Besign BK06 Bluetooth 5.0 in-car Speakerphone with Visor Clip, Wireless Car Kit for Hands-Free Talking & Music Streaming, Connects with Siri & Google Assistant, Auto On Off, Dual 2W Speakers Review:


I had an issue with settings on the android phone, since there are 4 different volume settings on my phone and I didn't know this at first, since the phone is new too, and the default setting for Bluetooth volume on my phone is "off" so it seemed the speaker wasn't working. Couldn't resolve this while driving so I took it inside and still nothing. I was actually going to return it - had it boxed and ready to ship back, but I was experimenting with another Bluetooth speaker, which worked immediately, without any tinkering with settings, so I thought I'd try the Besign BK06 again...and it worked. BUT if I want to use the phones loudspeaker and not the Bluetooth speaker, if the Besign speaker is turned ON, NEITHER the Besign or my phone's speaker work. Turns out the speaker settings for GoogleMaps need to be just so, AND the "Do Not disturb" feature of the android phone turned OFF, for this Bluetooth speaker to work. You'd think all these settings could be simplified. What's funny is that I had the Besign BK06 out for a test drive last week and everything worked fine without the need to tinker as on my subsequent test drive with GoogleMaps and the turn-by-turn directions.



Avantree New CK11 Hands Free Bluetooth for Cell Phone Car Kit, Loud Speakerphone, Siri Google Assistant Support, Motion AUTO ON, Volume Knob, Wireless in Car Handsfree Speaker with Visor Clip - Black Review:


Pros
- Easy to pair
- Speaker loud enough to hear in car.
- Nice big Answer/Volume button.
- Rotary volume adjustment, kudos!
- Great battery life.
- Consider this a great feature, motion activation is actually motion activation not the
slamming car door (like some other products). So, if you place this on table
and walk by the table, it will activate the device!
Now actual effect in lifetime scenario:
A Huge plus compared to other products that it disconnects by the time
I park my car in garage and get inside home.
Other products stays connected even if I am inside my home.

Cons
- Occasionally, listener on the other end complaints about my voice chopping off
I am assuming it may be due to interference from another vehicle passing by?
(Taking off one start for this)

Overall, great product. Happy Camper!

Bluetooth Handsfree Speakerphone for Cell Phone, Aigital Wireless Car Speaker Motion AUTO Power ON Car Receiver Sun Visor Music Player Adapter Built-in Microphone for Hands-Free Talking - Black Review:


Update (12/4/2017): I ordered the speaker on 10/25. After a full charge, the battery finally fully discharged on 11/28 (over a month later), based on mixed use during a five-day-a-week three-hour, round-trip commute. The battery/power-save feature on this thing is a beast. I almost lowered my rating, almost, to three-stars for two reasons. The first is based on what I experienced when the speaker battery was dying. The voice stated, "Battery low." Cool. That's what these Bluetooth (BT) speakers do. It then stated, "Battery low," every 15 seconds (in conjunction with the LED blinking red, intermittently), again. Okay, that's not generally an issue either. Most BT speakers I have will do this for a minute before shutting off. The issue I have with this speaker is that it did this for an hour, before I finally got tired of hearing the warning every 15 seconds (I timed the interval) and shut it off. The warning occurred while I was in the middle of a call, too, and kept occurring. I could see five- or ten-minutes worth of warnings; but, here you lose an hour (possibly more) of talk time. The second reason goes back to the max volume. This could be due to my phone (an Android); however, I'm fairly tech savvy and know I need to adjust both the phone's volume and the device volume. The strange thing is that music plays relatively loud, compared to volume levels during phone calls. While driving on the highway, I continually found myself straining to hear the caller. Admittedly, I'm older (42). So, while I'm sure I have some hearing loss (we all do as we age, to varying degrees), my hearing is generally good enough that I don't have issues hearing things (although my wife might contest that when she hollers for me to do something for her ;) ). This is still a good speaker. It has so much potential, too... with a few tweaks (pointed out in my review when I first wrote it) and now needing added to the list, "limit the battery-low warning to 10 minutes, max, to increase talk time," despite how phenomenal the battery life is. I still use this speaker as my daily driver, given my car doesn't have BT; and, this is still somewhat louder than my phone's speaker. After debating this with myself quite a bit, I still think the speaker deserves an "I like it" rating, given the battery life and the fact that I don't have to rely on my under-powered phone speaker when driving. Still, I wish the speaker was just a hair louder. Two or three extra volume-up "click" positions would be great.

Previous Review: I have an older Honda CR-V, which does not have a Bluetooth (BT) system in it. I also drive 2 to 3 hours, round-trip, a day in PA, where using your phone while driving for any other purpose than taking/making calls is illegal. Some time ago I made the switch to a BT earpiece, but I never liked placing it in my ear when starting a drive and removing it when the drive was done. I also never liked having to charge the earpiece from day to day and, for obvious reasons (e.g., comfort), that you couldn’t use the device while it was charging. I needed an alternative. Enter the Aigital BT speaker (in black, to compliment the interior of my CR-V). I used the speaker for a week, at this point. Here are my experiences so far.

Pros:
**Items in the box include a white, dual-port car charger (1A and 2.1A ports; 5V, max), black micro USB cable (although see Cons and General Comments), and the speaker. (A pro, in general, as they could have simply included only the cable, like some manufacturers do)
**Housing is solidly-built, ABS plastic. Black body, with silver accents. IMHO, stylish
**Buttons all have nice, tactile click/slide to them. They don’t feel cheaply executed.
**Visor clip is metal, strong, and holds the speaker in place well
**Pairing was quick and easy; and, I haven’t yet experienced a dropped/shaky BT connection.
**Seems to hold a charge/conserve power well (although please see Cons)
**Technically you can use the device while it’s charging. Not all BT communication devices I’ve had to this point allow using it while charging.
**Call volume is good, in mid-to-low noise environments (please see Cons)
**“OK Google Now” (Android) works well. Ability to hear the texts read to me and to respond to them (on an Android Motorola Droid Turbo, with Moto Assist) is wonderful. The phone’s built-in speaker can’t provide the level of sound this BT speaker can (please see Cons).
**Audible prompts from the device are helpful (but please see Cons and General Comments)

Cons:
**Auto-power on feature seemed spotty (not a showstopper for me; please see General Comments)
**BT reconnect is inconsistent -- i.e. the device doesn’t seem always (or even consistently) to scan for BT devices (in this case, my phone) -- (again, not a showstopper for me; please see General Comments)
**The device’s “voice,” although closer to human than I’ve heard on lesser-expensive BT devices, is somewhat odd.
**Speaker audio max level could be higher. It’s sufficient in mid-level to low-level noise environments. However, in a CR-V (which generates/lets in the cabin a decent amount of highway-road noise and/or combined with the radio), a more-powerful speaker might be better.
**When using the device with a navigation app, because the low-power mode is relatively aggressive, the device goes to low-power almost as soon as it no longer senses audio coming from the phone. It then takes the BT speaker about a second to turn on and transmit audio, clipping the first second of a turn-by-turn instruction (note, this did not affect calls, text readouts, or continually-playing music)
**The charger cable, at 1.5 ft is too short. It should be at least 3 ft. long to allow charging the device while it’s clipped to the visor.

General Comments: Accessories are nice. Car charger provides 1A and 2.1 A ports -- max 5V. The 5V max is important, as the instructions note not to charge the speaker using more than 5V. Included micro USB is a standard gimme cable, adequate for charging. However, at least for my CR-V, the cable is not long enough if you want to charge the speaker while it hangs on your visor. You’ll either need to get a longer charger cable (or use the host of others you likely have laying around). Either that, or you’ll need to remove the speaker from the visor to charge it. While the device holds a charge well, this is an oversight from my POV. Speaker housing is well built. I was surprised, given the relatively-low price. The housing is stylish, black with silver accents. Buttons are well-executed, and seemingly durable. One change I would have liked to see would have been the volume-up button on the right and the down button on the left. Upon plugging the device on the charger, a somewhat loud but unobtrusive voice stated “Charging initiated.” The voice is close to human, but has a robotic tinge to it. It’s somewhat odd; however, you seem to get used to it quick. The answer/end button turned red to denote charging began. Charging took 3 hrs, 16 min -- the manual states it takes around 3 hours; so it was within spec. When finished charging, the LED simply turned off. Instructions noted the LED should turn blue. Mine didn’t. However, to me, the red light turning off was sufficient. Upon turning on the device, it stated, “Power on. Battery high.” After about five seconds, the device stated, “Ready to pair.” The answer/end button began blinking quickly -- blue only, not red and blue, like normal. With my Android phone in pairing mode, “T821” appeared in the list of BT devices. I tapped “T821.” Within two seconds, the device paired (fast), and stated, “Pairing Completed, Device Connected,” followed by a single, audible, but not overbearing, tone. I walked outside and had my son call me. On the first ring, the device stated, “Incoming call.” On the second, it read, “Incoming call” and the read my son’s phone number to me. Keeping the speaker away from my mouth, at the same distance as my car visor, my son and I held a conversation. He confirmed I sounded crystal clear. He sounded perfect to me. Concerning controlling the speaker’s volume, in a sense, Android phones do not directly control a BT device’s volume. The best way to explain volume issues some Android users might be having is through recommendations for setting volume. With your phone paired to the speaker, I recommend setting the BT volume on your phone first (maybe one level lower than the highest setting). Then, using the speaker’s volume buttons, raise or lower your volume. When you hit the max lowest or highest volume, you’ll hear a beep. Keep in mind, the higher the volume, the faster the device battery drain. Although I only got this device for use as a voice speaker, I did test out the music functionality. None of this is a pro or con, for my purposes. Since the device uses a small speaker pushing only 3W (likely to conserve battery and save costs on manufacturing), don’t expect much in the way of quality music reproduction. While it’s sufficient for voice calls (and while it didn’t crack at all while playing all kinds of music), it simply isn’t designed to reproduce music well. Because of the use of a single, small speaker, with no passive port, there is no bass (although I didn’t expect there to be). Mids, while there, are flat… leaning more favorably toward highs. Think clock-radio speaker and you’ll be in the ballpark, sound-wise. Like all BT headsets I’ve ever used, the answer/end call button serves as a music multi-function control. A minor gripe, but not a Con, per se, volume up and down buttons seem “backward” in that I’d place the volume-up on the right and the volume-down on the left. The next day brought with it the time to take the speaker for a road trip. I’ll start with connectivity. The product description notes the device can sense when you are or aren’t in the car. I could be wrong, as it doesn’t look like any sensor I’ve seen before (i.e., no reddish-clear, or blacked-out plastic window), but the sensor could be next to mic and power switch. If not, I don’t know where the sensor is. The reason I question the placement of the sensor is the spotty nature with which it seems to detect you getting in the vehicle. I really don’t care whether the device detects me or not, as I’m okay (and would truly prefer) manually triggering connectivity. But, the device stated, only once so far, at a random time (when I had my phone’s BT radio off), “No device detected.” I would expect it to say this when I entered the car, or soon thereafter -- and at regular scanning intervals, if it senses movement. But it didn’t. The device auto-power on/auto-connection was random too. I purposefully left (and am leaving) the speaker on during this entire review (normally, I’d turn off my BT radio as well as any device connected to it, to save battery life). I wanted to see just how much power the speaker saves. I also wanted to see how the auto-power on worked. In some instances, I found I had to press the speaker’s answer/end call button to get it to connect. There was no need to re-pair the devices, but, again, I had to force a connection. Other times, initially, I would need to turn my phone’s BT radio on and off. This isn’t a Con for me, though. Like I said, I would normally turn off my BT radio and any devices, turning them on only when needed, to save power. Toward the end of the week, when I used the speaker and phone as I normally would (i.e., turning the radio and device off when not in use and turning them on when needed), I ran into no auto-connection issues. Either way, once the speaker connected, it stayed connected the duration of my fairly long 3-hour round-trip commutes. During the commutes, again in a Honda CR-V, while the volume level sufficed, I wish it could have been a little louder. When I’ve driving in the city, the levels are perfect. I even had to turn it down due to how loud it got. However, with significant tire noise and/or the radio, I found the volume wasn’t quite loud enough. A 5W speaker would be much better than the 3W speaker the device now has -- although there would be more power drain, as a result of a larger speaker (so, kind of a trade off). When driving on the highway,I had to turn off my radio (which wasn’t all that loud to begin with) to hear my wife while I was talking with her. She, however, said I was coming in loud and clear, despite the noise on my side of things. Note the speaker is placed on my driver-side visor, roughly two feet from my mouth. Regarding the answer/end button LED, it generally stays off. However, when any sort of noise comes through the phone (e.g., a text/app notification, call status update, etc.) the LED will blink -- once for a single notification, and then every couple seconds for as long as it is connected to a live audio source. This didn’t bother me during the day; however, I could see the light being bright while driving at night. Fall is here in PA. I’ll be driving in the dark more as the season progresses. I’ll update my review with my findings as time and use go on. Concerning overall battery life, unfortunately, I can’t speak to it just yet. However, at least on day five, it’s still on its original charge, with no signs of dying. Speaker use has been mixed, between navigation (which is the same as using it for music), text readouts and responses, calls, and states of disuse (i.e., sleep/low-power mode, while away from the car). I’m keeping track of when I last disconnected the device from the charger… from day one to when it dies. I’ll update my review with that info when the speaker fully discharges.

Recommended Purchase?: At this point, I can say the speaker meets my needs. While it has issues, for my purposes they are minor enough, compared to the price of more expensive speakers (for the value you get with the Aigital speaker), to say, yes, I have no problem (currently) recommending this device as a four-star purchase. A better auto-power-on sensor, a 5W speaker, and (more important for me to be able to use the device while it charges, without having to unclip it from the visor) a longer micro USB cord would’ve gotten it five-stars. As it stands, though, especially considering how long the device holds a charge, so far) four stars isn’t bad at all. Most importantly, though, this device certainly makes my hands-free commutes a lot easier. As my time and use progress, I’ll update my review accordingly. ‘Til then, regards.



Nulaxy Car Bluetooth Speakerphone, Loud Speaker Bluetooth Hands Free Car Kit Supports Siri Google Assistant, Motion AUTO ON, 2 Phones Simultaneously, Wireless in Car Handsfree Speaker with Visor Clip Review:


I have my personal cellphone (Galaxy A50) and work cellphone (iPhone 7) both paired to this device and it will let me answer calls on either of them with them both turned on at the same time. And the sound quality is quite good. BUT...it is insisting on calling the iPhone "Phone 1" and the A50 "Phone 2" and when I go to call out, it uses Phone 1. I want it to use Phone 2. I even paired up the A50 first so you would THINK the Nulaxy device would see the A50 as Phone 1. I have done everything I and people on a forum and Samsung help folks could think to do. I emailed Nulaxy. They said, "sorry, but it cannot be changed." To give them credit, they did offer to reimburse me 20%, but I told them I didn't need that. What I want is for it to work the way it seems it SHOULD work. It SEEMS like there must be a way. Other than that, it's fine.



Jabra 100-46000000-02 Freeway Bluetooth in-Car Speakerphone (U.S. Retail Packaging) Review:


Well, I may "love it" after awhile, but I'm a skeptical older lady, and don't fall "in love" easily. So, I'd really give it a four and a half.

But, here's the report after receiving this yesterday.

First, don't believe the description. The actual speakerphone (Freeway) is 4" x 4.5", not the 4.56x6.97, which is size of the box it came in.

Set up was a breeze. I put the speakerphone on the charger for awhile in the house. I turned on Bluetooth on my Samsung SM-G930A and linked it with the device. I was asked if I wanted the Freeway to have access to my phone directory and I answered yes.

Then, I moved the whole kit and caboodle out to my 2007 Tahoe and clipped the Freeway to the visor, again followed the instructions for turning it on and linking, and it worked perfectly. I had to "dial" numbers on the physical phone, because I haven't set up the voice commands yet, but after one day and three phone calls (two incoming, one outgoing) I found the system to work very well. One call took place when the air-conditioner was ramping up (just started car, it was 91+ outside). The external sound made some "static" to the person on a cell phone on the other end. The other calls, however, were crisp and clear, according to the recipients.

On my end, I can't say enough about the sound. It was clear, and loud enough for my hard-of-hearing husband in the pax seat to hear perfectly. I have kids with blue-toothed vehicles (through the audio) and I will say that for me, this was much easier for me to hear the other person.

Attached are a couple of pics of the Freeway attached to the visor. Note that it is on the left side, and easily clears the mirror on the back.

All in all, a good purchase. Now, to get one for my other old cars!



Motorola Sonic Rider SP-005BK/89589N Bluetooth Wireless in-Car Speakerphone New Version - Black - Retail Review:


Bought this from Amazon LLC direct based on various reviews that had both good and bad things to say about the voice quality of this device. Great news: the voice quality is excellent. I've been using it in a 2009 SUV and people say they can hear me well. And I can hear them just fine!

I have the unit clipped to the sun visor, of course, and in my vehicle it sits just above my mouth. So there is an unobstructed path of around six inches from mouth to mic. If you don't experience good voice quality, perhaps reposition the unit.

I don't keep the unit clipped to the visor when it's not in use. It's small enough to fit in the upper half of console storage, which is about three inches deep. The included lighter power adapter also fits. Out of sight, out of mind.

The only missing feature is built-in voice dialing: if your phone voice dials with a long press on the green call button, this unit will act in the same way. But if your phone does not have voice dialing, this unit won't help. It is essentially a Bluetooth mic and speaker combo unit with mute, volume, and a hangup button. A great value if you don't need more than that.
