Two new corded headset introductions from Jabra bring the company's lineup of hands-free devices to one dozen.
The Jabra EarSet WindUp conveniently manages the headset's cord through a lightweight, compact retractable device that fits in the palm of a user's hand, pocket or purse. The WindUp owes its small size to an innovative cord winder mechanism and the EarSet's all-in-the-ear design, which also includes an integrated answer/end button.
The WindUp features the company's new locking EarGel, which securely fits the product's ear piece, providing users with a custom, comfortable fit, while enhancing sound clarity. Suggested retail is $39.99.
Jabra's ProBoom features an ultra-lightweight, full-length boom with a noise-canceling microphone to enhance clarity for voice-enabled dialing. An in-line volume control with electronic amplifier augments speaker volume so users can boost it beyond the level of their handset alone.
The ProBoom also features an in-line voice-activated dialing and answer/end button for one-touch convenience. The durable, highly flexible boom will stand up to multiple adjustments and maintain its shape. Suggested retail is $49.99.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
