This visually intriguing offering from iDect has a lot of neat features hiding under its super sleek glossy black finish and polished chrome accents. The odd shape of the handset is actually designed with ergonomic considerations in mind, and is more than just a striking shape. This is a philosophy which resonates throughout the iDect Boomerang's construction: a huge form factor complimenting clever design and brilliant functionality which make this a high end designer phone.

What does the Boomerang have to set itself outside the box?
These features are great, but pretty typical to quality cordless phones. We find some helpful features like the ability to have the answering machine automatically answer calls and put them on speakerphone, and the ability to remotely check messages. Adjustable ringer time makes sure you can always get to the phone in time if set properly, and the phones built in alarm clock can be used to keep track of time even when you're on the phone.
Sound quality on the Boomerang is exceptional both for loud speaker and normal calls with the handset. Easy to use controls allow for the adjustment of in call volume as well as the volume of the ringer.
