GoJo is one of those As Seen On TV products that baffling on several levels. From its shoddy construction, to the terrible usability, the fact that this product is being purchased is beyond me. From the beginning, it was clear this device was not going to receive a decent review, but I decided to have some fun poking a little fun at the GoJo.
GoJo is not a bluetooth device. Think back to the days when you had a CD player and those headphones with the foam earpieces. Now, take those headphones, remove an earpiece, and attach your cellphone. That is basically the premise here. GoJo comes with two headpieces, each with several special sticky attachments for a more thorough fit. You place a sticky pad on your cell phone, then affix it to the headpiece, and finally wrap it around your head.
If it sounds ridiculous… you should see it live. This is perhaps the dumbest looking thing you could possibly put on your head. If you own an iPhone like I do, you understand that the “mute” button is conveniently located by your cheek, rendering this As Seen On TV device useless. Think this through with me for a sec, if you get another call, you have to physically remove your GoJo from your head, switch lines, and then replace the GoJo. Play that out even further… you don’t even really use the GoJo unless you are going to talk on the phone for a LONG time.
Besides the terrible usability, this is a terribly designed product. I’m pretty sure they sized GoJo to a toddler’s head. I don’t have a big head, and it was tight on me. What’s even worse, after testing it for 30 minutes, one of the GoJo’s broke… and we didn’t even put it through a stress test! That was just putting it on and taking it off.
Bottom line: I can’t imagine or understand why these things are selling. Save yourself some money and just use your shoulder to keep your phone by your ear. In the meantime, have some fun watching the video we put together as we made fun of GoJo a little.
