Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worthy successor of Esquire 1 After owning couple of years of Esquire 1 I was totally excited when they released the Esquire 2. I even managed to resell the Esquire 1 for half of the purchase price. Once that was done I ordered the Esquire 2 for my wife in Indonesia as she has more conference calls then I would have. Once owning the Esquire 2, after 2 months it is showing failure with the battery pack. You can not use if it is not connected to a power source. After 12 months the sound is deformed and it has this annoying electrical static sound. Please see the video for our experience.
