I bought the Scosche BTAXS for the dual purpose of hands-free calling and sending my phone’s sound through my car stereo for listening to podcasts while I’m driving. There were several things that impressed me with the BTAXS in comparison to other Bluetooth AUX solutions I tried. I loved the fact that there was no mess of cables. The position of the microphone was great because it was up at the AUX port of the head unit so I never had any complaints that the person on the other end of the call couldn’t hear me. The sound was great and since it wasn't drawing power from the car I no longer needed a ground loop noise filter, although like all of the solutions I’ve tried I really have to crank the volume on the stereo to get good output. Also, Scosche provided many great accessories in the box that other companies might have sold separately. What I don't like about the BTAXS is the terrible battery life. I drive about 40 min to work. I cannot use the Scosche BTAXS on both my drive to and from work and leave it in the car overnight and expect it to work the next day. If I drive around on my lunch break, it may not last all day, even when I turn it off when not in use. So it’s kind of like a low-quality Bluetooth headset if you were on two 40 minute calls without recharging. Scosche does provide a charging cable and car adapter so I can power it during use but that takes away the coolness of not having any cables. It also introduces a little bit of ground loop noise. If I was to run it through the filter I would not be able to position the microphone where I would get the best call quality.
