Even though Father's Day was this past weekend, I am still on the lookout for the perfect gift for my husband..why?  Well, because I am notorious for buying gifts after the occasion and Father's Day is no different...sadly.  If you're like me and still have no clue what to get the man in your life, have no fear, I'm here to help!

My husband spends nearly 3 hours, every day driving back and forth to work and he usually spends a good deal of his car ride home hanging out on the phone with me (yeah, he's sweet like that) and that's great, but he's completely anti-Bluetooth headset (he says they are for old people) so that means he spends all of that time holding the phone, which is both annoying and a little dangerous.  Of course, holding the phone isn't nearly as dangerous as his habit of texting and driving (which I HATE), so I'm always trying to keep him on the phone rather than having him text me and it's a challenge!  Given his long commute, I am always trying to find products that help make keeping us connected during that time a little easier, so when I received an email for a product called ClipSee (a handfree, speakerphone for iPhone) I just had to check it out!

About ClipSee...

The ClipSee speakerphone for iPhone®  is a new hands-free option for your car.  It provides secure and convenient positioning for your iPhone® 4 or 5 - easily clipping onto your shoulder belt - and it works with most standard-sized iPhone® cases too!

The ClipSee is also designed to amplify the speaker sound by up to 3x and direct it toward your ears, so you are more likely to hear the voice on the other end even with significant road and wind noise.  What's more, when the ClipSee is attached to your shoulder belt, the top microphone of the iPhone® is just inches from your mouth, greatly improving your voice clarity on the other end.
 Product Features:
Amplifies speaker sound up to 3x so you can hear better
Places top microphone just inches from your mouth, assuring your voice is transmitted clearly to the other end
Provides a secure and conveniently accessible holder for your iPhone
Sturdy seat belt clip holds ClipSee firmly on shoulder harness, while still allowing easy and quick attachment and removal
Compatible with all versions of iPhone 4 and 5, including with most standard-sized cases*
Finger guides and easy Home button access allow hands-free, voice-activated operation while keeping eyes on the road
Height adjustment in back assures your phone will align appropriately with the Home button and in-call menu screen

Pretty cool...right?!?!  If you know anything about me and how I like to test products around here, then you probably already know that I am truly a fan of the whole "seeing is believing" thing, so naturally, I decided to hop in my car with my camera and try the ClipSee out for myself...check it out!


While I have to be honest and it admit that it didn't blow me away as being the absolute best iPhone accessory on the market, I was impressed by how well it worked!   The phone call was clear and definitely louder than normal thanks to the design of the device and I can see it being something that I would use to make calls while on the go (I do so dislike having to hold the phone to my ear...can we say messed up makeup? and using the speakerphone in a car full of very loud kids is just usually not ideal).  The one thing I did dislike about the ClipSee is that if the phone is in the device, it's sort of at an awkward angle to answer the phone and then place the call on speakerphone (as you can see in the video), but those things aside, I do think it makes taking and receiving phone calls on the go so much easier than Bluetooth headsets and I can definitely see my husband using the ClipSee on his long drives to and from work!  You can pickup a ClipSee here for less than $30! 

If you're looking for something unique for the man in your life and you kinda, sorta didn't get him a Father's Day gift (I'm not pointing any fingers y'all) then I'd definitely check out ClipSee!  I also have great news for one of my amazing of y'all is going to win a ClipSee of your own!  If you would like to enter the giveaway, check out the Rafflecopter widget below!
