The garish orange magnetic cradle is a bit of a blip, but docking your iPhone onto the 30 pin connector should be distraction enough.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/invoxia-audioffice-review-1_3.jpg?1364298374" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Invoxia AudiOffice review – set-up </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>So it might be pretty but what can it do? Start by pairing your iPhone, iPad (or other Bluetooth enabled device) to the AudiOffice by pressing the single volume and speakerphone button up top and switching on your Bluetooth. There’s also a USB port and 3.5mm jack for hooking up PCs or Macs the old fashioned way.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/invoxia-audioffice-review-2_2.jpg?1364298374" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Invoxia AudiOffice review – Invoxia app </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Once you’ve been prompted to download the free Invoxia app, you can start pumping your tunes wirelessly while you wait for a call.

Placing the handset down to end a call does feel wonderfully satisfying though. Far better is the speakerphone option, which makes much more sense for conferencing, and while any dock will amplify your smartphone’s sound, on the AudiOffice voices do sound loud and clear and fill the room nicely.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/invoxia-audioffice-review-4_2.jpg?1364298374" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Invoxia AudiOffice review – tablet video calls </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Like the NVX 610, the AudiOffice will look after your iPad, too.
