The Plantronics K100 Bluetooth speakerphone is one of those very few premium gadgets available in the market that caters to a niche audience (mostly those who own cars). However, its functionality is a big question since accessories like the K100 are almost obsolete owing to integration of the same functions into a single device like a mobile phone or a portable media player.
The K100’s design immediately transports me to the 90’s. I distinctly remember my mom flaunting a similar looking portable FM radio which she had got as a gift for her birthday. The black coloured, lightweight K100’s retro looks are uninspiring. It weighs around 92 grams and has dimensions of 4.8 x 9 x 2.3.

A sensitive and easy-to-use circular volume dial sits comfortably around the fairly large multi-function (power/telephone) button. Flanking on either side are the FM transmitter and the volume mute button. Apart from this, a small LED indicator which blinks red/blue is placed above the dial. Two microphones sit on top of the design of the K100. The fairly big speaker grill occupies the lower half of the structure. The huge clipper on the back is handy. The micro-USB port on the right can be used for charging the device.
