iClever® Himbox - Ever Clever
According to the WIRECUTTER (Jan 9, 2015), iClever Himbox HB01 kit wins the competition because of its superb audio quality (as good as, or better than the rest of the competition) and mic performance, if your vehicle has an auxiliary input. And unlike our competitors models, which tend to be hardwired into their power supplies or they lack auto-connect features, Himbox can be used with any USB power source.
iClever Himbox Bluetooth car kit is developed for easy installation in motor vehicles to enable hands-free operation. With this kit, you can use the car stereo system to enjoy the music saved in your cellphone and answer incoming calls without having to pick up your phone. As a plus bonus, this car kit is equipped with a dual USB port car charger, so while it is working you can have a digital device recharged at the same time.
- Auto-connect with the last paired device
- Can also be used as a Bluetooth receiver to enable connection to ordinary loudspeaker with Bluetooth functionality. (Powered via USB port)
- Automatically calls back the last outgoing call when the control button is quickly pressed twice.
- Activate Siri when the control button is pressed for 1~2 seconds; Sometimes you will need to press the control button twice (a short-press to wake it up and then a long press for 1~2 seconds)
- To connect this Bluetooth car kit to your car stereo system, your car stereo must have a 3.5mm Aux-in jack. As a bonus for home entertainment, with this kit you may add Bluetooth connectivity to a loudspeaker that does not have Bluetooth functionality.
Himbox Car Kit is backed by our 1 Year Warranty and 45 days Money Back Guarantee.(Extra 15 days over standard 30day)

I honestly always prefer a brand I trust and know, such as Belkin. Unfortunately, Belkin's device, from what i've read from other reviews, does not auto connect to your phone when you start the car. Having to re-pair the devices every car ride is a real big inconvenience, so Belkin was out of the question.
Searching Amazon for the right device, I stumbled upon the iClever Himbox. I was skeptical at first but found myself buying it despite the gut feeling that it sounded like a cheap alternative you find in gas stations for 10 bucks. I mean come on, what kind of name is Himbox. Boy was I wrong.
The iClever Himbox is by far the best Hands-free kit because of a few features that make it so much easier to use and live with. First, the auto connect feature works flawlessly. Jump into the car, turn it on, and literally a second later you hear, "Your device is connected." Then just hit the play button and drive off. All while the phone is in your pocket. About a month has gone by, and that feature hasn't failed me once, yet. But it sure doesn't seem like it will anytime soon.
The car charger has two usb ports for powering the Himbox and most likely, your phone. The second port is a 2.1 amp charging port. Meaning it charges alot faster than normal 1 amp chargers.
The play, skip, and back buttons make changing and pausing music effortlessly. I have an iPhone 5s and haven't encountered any problems with the Himbox's control buttons.Read more ›

All you have to do is plug the HB01 into the car's Aux port, then the USB power, which is supplied by the included cigarette lighter adapter. Once your device syncs, BAM! You have completely hands free communication and media via Bluetooth, with sound quality that is crystal clear. Connectivity is instantaneous upon turning on the car each time, and resuming your music is as easy as pressing the center button once the HB01 tells you that your "device is connected". As a traveling consultant this was hands down the best product for making sure that every car I get into has the same seamless connectivity! I would recommend this to anyone looking to gain Bluetooth connectivity without breaking the bank!
NOTE: My review is based on the HimBox HB01being used with my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Google Play Music for personal media, as well as Pandora for internet radio. Both sound great in the stock Logic 7 car audio system. As with anything else, different equipment will yield different results.
I live in Dubai now and still order things from the US as things are more economical that way even with shipping (Yes Dubai is that expensive). So this took a while to get to me but it arrived as quickly as it could. The product was packaged well and there were no issues with that part.
The product itself is small and looked well made. I installed it on my 2011 Chevy Silverado 4x4 LS. It was easy to to install. I placed the main Himbox magnetic back (round object) over my round AC tempreature control (See Himbox in the picture attached over AC temp dial below radio volume dial). It fit perfectly over the round AC temp control that the Himbox looks like a stock part. I tucked the wires behind a small center pocket and it is out of the way. They are not complely hidden but it looks nice and clean. The double USB port cigarette adapter is nice and handy. I like the low profile and subtle blue light. I did have to read the instructions so I could pair my LG G3 Android smart phone. The instructions were written well and it was very informative. The whole set up and install was effortless (10 min give or take)
The sound is great and comes through in high quality. There aren't any distortion, external noise or radio interference that wireless bluetooth systems sometimes have. My LG G3 doesn't automatically pair and I have to tap on the Himbox icon under the bluetooth menu to re-connect. It is a 2 step process that doesn't bother me. It is still very simple and quick. My girlfriend's iPhone 5 connect automatically. So it is more the smart phone more than a Himbox issue. Handsfree use is great even though I've only used it a few times.Read more ›
