A few weeks ago I posted an interview with the inventor of the Bandshell audio enhancement cover for the iPhone. Soon after, I tried it out and almost posted a negative review -- until I found that I'd put the iPhone in backwards. Line up the camera lens with the hole in the back of the Bandshell for best results. Duh!
I tried it out on a couple of very important negotiation calls with major business contacts, and it worked like a charm. I had no complaints from the other party (though they did say it sounded like I was on a speakerphone, which I was), and I could hear them better than when it's in my normal leather case.
So rather than holding the phone up to my ear and typing notes with one hand, or holding a notepad with my elbow while jotting notes, I slip the phone into the Bandshell before making a call from my desk.
It works as the inventor said it would -- as long as you install it correctly...
