Q: What should I look for in a good Skypephone for making calls inside and outside the US?
A: The ingredients for making a good US Skypephone are different than the ingredients for a traditional telephone. Your US Skypephone should correct the hassles of wearing Skype headsets, leave both hands free to type, and provide exceptional audio quality. It must be compatible and easy to install. The VR-Fidelity speakerphone from Auzentech is such a phone.
Design: The Auzentech VR-Fidelity Skypephone does not imitate a standard US telephone, which makes it a great US Skypephone. The size and shape of a doughnut, it has a speaker in the center and external controls for playback volume control and to mute the microphone. Output is provided via an earphone and auxiliary output jack.
No Headsets: The VR-Fidelity may be the best speakerphone you ever use. You can get up and walk around during the conversation up to nine feet in any direction. When a Skypephone call comes in, you just accept it on the PC and start talking—there is no need to scramble for a pair of headphones.
Audio Quality: The VR-Fidelity US Skypephone includes a first-rate sound card, microphone, and speaker. Echo-cancellation prevents the caller's voice from echoing back to them. Full-duplex capability allows both callers to talk at the same time without any loss.
Privacy: If you had muted the phone, with one press of the mute button it is un-muted. If you decide that you want to keep it quiet for other people in the office, you can adjust the volume or plug and earphone into the unit. And, if you want to plug a headset in, it has both ear and microphone jacks for just that purpose.
Compatibility: The VR-Fidelity is a plug-and-play US Skypephone compatible with Windows and Macintosh systems. Plug it into any available USB port, and on Windows computers it will automatically take over for the built-in sound card. Unplug it, and the internal soundcard takes over again. Macintosh computers simply need to open the Sound application in the Control Panel.
The Auzentech VR-Fidelity is an ideal US Skypephone. It solves the inconvenience of headsets, improves sound quality, and saves you from scrambling for a headset when a call comes in. The Auzentech VR-Fidelity Skypephone does not try to imitate a standard telephone—it's built with a full understanding of what it is like to make and receive calls on Skype.
