As goofy as Bluetooth headsets may be, there's still people who use them on a daily basis. So what happens to those people when they want to listen to music and use a headset? They need something like Jawbone's The Nerd.
Sometimes companies release video propaganda designed to show how fun/happy/professional they are. Others, like Plantronics, inadvertently turn us off their products for life. Though let's be honest—it's not like we were going to buy a Bluetooth headset anyway.
Look, we can hate on Bluetooth headsets all we want, but the fact is, they're both practical and popular among a certain set—and Aliph's new Jawbone Icon is a solid choice, though barely changed from previous versions.
From the eccentric brainiacs at Skymall comes the Invisible Bluetooth Headset. I can see it causing permanent deafness, but not because of a volume level issue.
It's tough to muster excitement over a $130 Bluetooth headset nowadays. It feels like peeling yourself out of bed after a breakup, or laughing at a joke during a eulogy for your best friend. So, Jabra, regarding the Stone: Thanks.
There are two kinds of Bluetooth users in the world: The inexplicably proud; and the begrudgingly conscripted. With the long-lasting, appealingly minimalist black and silver Discovery 975, Plantronics is wisely aiming for the latter.
Bored with just talking about their microthin Bluetooth headsets, MoGo has started screwing them to things. For example: BlackBerrys! Now you can buy a headset with an adorable little backpack for your Curve and Javelin, and soon, Bold and Tour.
This Tag Heuer Bluetooth headset isn't quite as gorgeous as the company's watches, but it's still unlike anything else on the market.
Do Bluetooth headset makers plant their seeds at the same time every year or something? Following the Jawbone Prime, modeled by sexy ladies, is Plantronics' Voyager Pro, modeled by business douches.
I didn't realize just how small this Jabra Halo Stereo Bluetooth Headset was until I actually picked it up. Yeah, it's pretty damn thin.
Nokia recently asked for Bluetooth headset designs inspired by a certain song; this is what G. Smith presented after listening to "Robot Rock" a few dozen times. R. Kelly and Michael Jackson are also well-represented.
Last time we checked, the world's tiniest Bluetooth headset wasn't quite as dimunitive as the piece Jim and Pam used to keep in minute-by-minute contact last night, with hilarious (and, oh boy, disastrous) results. I'm heading out to the Village now, Pam, if you're reading this-tell me where to go. And also, you are…
One way to increase the potency of Bluetooth headsets as social poison is to wear them while affecting strange, inexplicable and constant head movement. With Plantronics' new movement-charged headset design, that may become a necessity. The device relies on a small flywheel that, when rotated in a magnetic field,…
Yesterday's news about the train incident in LA got me thinking. We all know about the dangers of using a cellphone in the car, but let's face it—most of us do it anyway. So, this question isn't meant to judge. I am simply curious to know how you use your phone in the car. In other words, do you stick with the…
Congrats on being a lawbreaker! Why? Because it will earn you a $20 discount on a new Jawbone Bluetooth headset thanks to a new promotion Aliph is running on their product website. Not a fan of the Jawbone? No worries-Headsets.com is giving away a free Plantronics Discovery 925 (a $149.95) headset to the first 734…
Aliph's Jawbone is one of the least obnoxious, if a squee bulkier, Bluetooth headsets out there. Its hotter younger sister just popped up on the FCC, and looks to be under two cm wide, losing a fair bit of the original Jawbone's girth. Even though the earclip's not in this shot, the manual shows that it's still got…
CSR, the UK-based company with over 50 percent of the market share of Bluetooth products, has created BlueVox2, a cheap mono headset with low power consumption—CSR claims 15 hours talk time—and noise reduction. The tiny chip has AuriStream, allows simultaneous connection to multiple devices and supports Bluetooth…
Kensington just dumped a whole host of in-car peripherals. Here's the lot:
