Gear Guide: Mavizen Blueye mobile phone adaptor for iPod

The Blueye is a 3.8 x 2.5 x 0.5cm white box with a spring-loaded, vertically aligned clip on the back. On its base is a mini USB port that takes the dock cable that connects to your iPod. At the top is a standard 3.5mm earphone socket and the unit’s microphone hole. On the left-hand side sits a hold switch and a key to activate the device’s integrated FM radio.

The front of the device sports an iPod Shuffle-like circular control – the central button does play and pause, while the wheel around it is a four-way switch for nudging the volume up and down, and skipping back and forth through the songs in your playlist.

Beneath the main control is a button with the familiar Bluetooth ‘B’ logo, used to connect the gadget to your phone, though you have to press and hold the play/pause control to initiate the pairing procedure. Pairing is easy, though – it’s just like finding and associating your phone with any wireless headset, though this time round you’re iPod’s screen tells you what’s going on.
