FrontRunners: Conversation Piece

<< Back to Robb Report, April 2007

    As the commodification of cell phones continues, we always are pleased to encounter an impressive design. The $350 Bang & Olufsen EarSet 2 Bluetooth headset (www.bang-olufsen.com) features dual omnidirectional microphones that convey your voice clearly, even in windy conditions, and digital signal processing helps deliver the impression of a real person—not a ghost with a head cold—at the other end of the wireless connection. The comfortable, sleekly styled unit is simple to operate: Fold the short microphone arm out, and it switches on; fold it back, and it switches off. An equally sleek charger, which can be mounted on a wall or placed on a table, provides about four hours of talk time.
