Jabra is launching two new Bluetooth-enabled headsets this month.
The Jabra BT325s is a corded stereo headset that connects with a 3.5mm jack to an MP3 player, PC, mobile music phone or other similar device but can also connect wirelessly to Bluetooth enabled cellphones. It features up to 8 hours of talk or music time and up to 240 hours of standby time. The water resistant headset features a multi-colored light LED indicator to keep the user abreast of Bluetooth, battery and charging status. Other features include advanced Bluetooth phone controls which perform functions like on/off, call answer/end/reject/hold/wait, last number redial, voice dialing, mute and more.
The BT 325s is shipping this month and is set to retail for a suggested $89.
Also shipping this month is the Jabra BT620S, which the company claims is the longest playing stereo Bluetooth headset on the market, featuring 16 hours of talk time, 14 hours of music streaming and 240 hours of standby time. The headset is meant to be used wirelessly with both the phone and music products, and it allows users to connect to both products simultaneously. The high-frequency speakers feature phone controls on the left and music controls on the right.
It comes complete with an AC adapter and mini USB jack so the product can be charged from the PC. The BT620s has a suggested retail price of $129.
