BlueAnt S4 handsfree.

The BlueAnt S4 handsfree voice-controlled car speakerphone lets you make and answer calls using your voice instead of your hands. The 4.9-inch long by 2.4-inch wide device clips onto the sun visor and provides up to 10 meters (33 feet) of RF coverage. There are touch-sensitive volume controls, but the overall operation is handsfree. Text-to-speech reads aloud the names of incoming callers and can store up to 2,000 phonebook entries per paired device. Multipoint connects to two phones and answers the one that rings. Outgoing audio is filtered through wind, road, and background noise reduction, and the full duplex, high-volume speaker provides clear, deep incoming signals. Set to On, the BlueAnt will listen for your command to initiate calls, use favorites, redial, call back, check battery, update phone book, or cancel. And it will read aloud SMS messages received from Android devices and e-mail from Black-Berry systems. The clip on the back is magnetic and can be moved around for a better fit on the visor. The rechargeable lithium ion battery provides up to 20 hours' talk time and up to 700 hours' standby time. It recharges in three to four hours via a micro-USB connection.
