This phone allows you to use your phone while you are talking. It keeps the phone away from your head which is a good idea as the jury is still out on whether or not they cause brain tumors.

Just insert your Iphone earbuds and hands-free mic. The sound is crisp and clear. 

The style is taken from an old Bakelite phone and is a joy to use.

Some tips from Vert Design...
We've found that the White Strong & Flexible material works well but gets dirty after a bit of use so printing in the Black or Red might be a better idea. Alternatively, why not paint in your own custom colour.

Be careful when screwing on the end caps. We've made a small cutout designed for the cable but if it falls out before you screw on the endcap, the cable can get pinched.

Check out the improved bass response in the standard earbuds. Interestingly, the earpiece acts as a speaker chamber and the lower frequencies are pretty impressive!
