Novophone Retro Handset

Novophone Retro Handset

OK, we freely confess to a love of all things retro, from 8-track players to MCM furniture. We try to balance that love of retro with an affection for tiny up-to-date gadgets, and are always delighted to find ways to marry the two (like playing an iPod through a 1970s era radio). After a marathon cell phone session last night led to a cramped and achy shoulder this morning, the hunt for a new handset began- when we found this one, we knew we were in love...

This stylish offering from Novophone is a genuine old-school handset wired for use with a cell-phone. If comes with a 2.5mm jack standard, and Novophone offers a series of adapters to make it functional with most cell phones. At only $24.95 and with a lifetime guarantee, this handset is is a hands-down better option than the last ear-piece we got from our cell-phone company which was more expensive, less attractive, and broke just past the 30 day return period.

We don't have a landline, and though this handset certainly won't help while walking or driving, we will be picking one up for use at home. We're pretty sure just looking at it will make us smile at the start of every phone conversation; we would love to hear from anyone who has actually used one of these handsets.
