      I actually use the POP receiver not for my smartphone as I don't talk on it that much, but for when I speak on skype overseas.

      I actually record my calls for my audio projects and the receiver gives a really weighty sound to the calls, like the depth you'd get when hearing someone call a radio show from a receiver-type telephone.

      I turn off the video function of skype, plug in, and feel I can have a much more focused and indepth conversation with this handheld receiver to my ear - it's the aesthetics that leads to a better functionality for me.

      Got this as a funky addition to my already bloated collection of esoteric stuff. Seeing it used by celebrities should have been my first warning sign... Construction seems ok, good quality plastic with recessed single function button with good feel. However, the volume is low! I mean you squeeze it against your head low! I ordered 2 of these (one as a gift) and the same complaint! I set my Samsung Galaxy S 2 (Gift was used on Nokia something or other) to top volume and it was still quiet. Not inaudible, just uncomfortable. Which is enough to make you put it in a corner and forget it's existence.

      Also, the main merits of this phone include how it's preventing 'absorbed phone radiation' although the difference would be instead of holding it to your head, you keep it in your pants pocket (for me, anyways). Not exactly much of a difference, but my brazen phone use may differ from yours.

      Two stars are for a well constructed (and well marketed) product. For those looking for alternatives to holding a phone to your head, I suggest bluetooth headsets, as for basic ones, the price is comparable. And the advantages of not having to hold anything to your head should be obvious.

      For those concerned about phone radiation, I suggest more traditional means of prevention, such as lead shields, or sunscreen (SPF 30+). (This is based on the current INCONCLUSIVE research into phone radiation that I'm aware of.)

        Comments about POP Phone with Soft Touch Red Paint Treatment:

        I find that I use my cellphone all the time for my business.
        I love the classic, functional design of being able to hold the phone between my shoulder and head (not for extended calls of course), but the sound quality is terrific and using this phone puts a smile on my face.

        Reducing exposure to electromagnetic next to your brain seems like a really good idea...

          I really like this phone! Only I wish they also offered the matching sholder rest to thicken up the phone. I forgot how much your neck can hurt if you're pinching it between your ear and shoulder on a long call.

          I gave this to someone who doesn't like to hold the cell phone to his head, and he loves it! It's comfortable and the sound quality is excellent.

            This is a well-built tool that has allowed people to, apparently, hear me for the first time. I changed my phone, as I thought that was the problem. Apparently not, as no one could hear me on my newest phone either...until I plugged in this handset. Now, if I don't use it my friends say 'get it as I can't hear you'.
            5 friends are now ordering this product as they noticed such a huge difference.

              When I'm at home and know I've got a long call, I plug in this POP phone so it's easier to hold. Today, I plugged in the handset before I called my mom. I put the phone on the couch next to me and held the handset. SO much more comfortable than holding that flat phone to my head!

              The audio comes through great. The one thing I noticed is that sometimes if I'm moving around with it a lot (like when I'm outside wrangling the dogs) I have my phone in my pocket and if the cord gets jostled a bit there is some static that goes through to the caller. Overall, I'm very pleased! I bought one for me and one for a friend who is going to be working remotely soon.

                    It plugs into the microphone hole on the ipod and ipad...and my MSI netbook, too. It works fine but you cannot adjust the volume from this headset, like you normally can do with earphones, etc. I wish it had come with an adapter for 2.5 machines but they can be purchased and will be so the headset will work with all of my computers. All in all, nice retro look, too.

                          I use this to separate my cell phone from my ear all day long. It also reduces the radiation and brings great health benefits!

                            Got this as a funky addition to my already bloated collection of esoteric stuff. Seeing it used by celebrities should have been my first warning sign... Construction seems ok, good quality plastic with recessed single function button with good feel. However, the volume is low! I mean you squeeze it against your head low! I ordered 2 of these (one as a gift) and the same complaint! I set my Samsung Galaxy S 2 (Gift was used on Nokia something or other) to top volume and it was still quiet. Not inaudible, just uncomfortable. Which is enough to make you put it in a corner and forget it's existence.

                            Also, the main merits of this phone include how it's preventing 'absorbed phone radiation' although the difference would be instead of holding it to your head, you keep it in your pants pocket (for me, anyways). Not exactly much of a difference, but my brazen phone use may differ from yours.

                            Two stars are for a well constructed (and well marketed) product. For those looking for alternatives to holding a phone to your head, I suggest bluetooth headsets, as for basic ones, the price is comparable. And the advantages of not having to hold anything to your head should be obvious.

                            For those concerned about phone radiation, I suggest more traditional means of prevention, such as lead shields, or sunscreen (SPF 30+). (This is based on the current INCONCLUSIVE research into phone radiation that I'm aware of.)

                              I bought the Native Union Pop-Phone for an elderly friend who, since a stroke has trouble holding a cellphone to her ear. It looked like the perfect solution, but once I got the product I realized that it does not allow the phone to ring when the handset is plugged in. This was not mentioned anywhere in the literature or the packaging. I wrote to Native Union customer service to ask about this and they said it was designed to let a cell phone ring while the Pop Phone was attached to it, but I tried it on several cell phones and it was the same with all of them. After thinking about it, it makes sense that the phone would NOT ring if something is plugged into the headphone jack. It seems that Native Union is being deliberately misleading on this. In addition, the sound quality of the handset is horrible. I got lots of static, even though I tried it on several phones. When I unplugged the handset, the static disappeared and the calls were crystal clear.

                                    Unfortunately, it didn't work with my mom's LG cell phone or mine. Could hardly hear anything but a slight dial tone when dialing. One was to be a gift to my mom, and the other, to my aunt. I plan on returning the two products this week.
