Want a Better Looking Blue Tooth headset – Help is on the Way Next Year
Posted Jul 23 2009 10:35pm
It looks as though there will be a couple choices and the option for a “ring” as well next year. I do have to say this does look a lot better than the flashing blue light that we all walk around with today with a nice jewelry enhanced appearance, especially for us women.
The price is around $130.00 for the device and we can hopefully see the product next year. If I am reading this correctly, the devices will also project a screen so you can see your reminders, appointments, etc. too, nice. BD
Although Bluetooth headsets have come a long way in the style stakes, you can still look and feel a bit like a dork getting about town with one permanently affixed to your ear. Also, since they are usually designed to mold to the shape of the ear, they can be a little awkward to stuff in a pocket when not in use. An innovative new Bluetooth headset called the Orb solves this problem by transforming from a wireless earpiece into a ring that can be worn on your finger.
The Orb transforms from a ring with a simple twist to become a Bluetooth headset capable of hands-free calling. Incorporating NXT technology the Orb provides high quality bone conduction audio without the discomfort of placing a device inside the ear. A Deluxe edition also features a Flexible Organic Light Emitting Device (FOLED) screen to display caller ID, calendar reminders, and voice-to-text information for communication without taking the ring off the finger.
