Shure, which makes the QuietSpot mobile phone headset, has begun making its product available in Sprint retail stores and on the Sprint Web site. This is in addition to the Shure Web site.
The lightweight QuietSpot uses a "unique" in-ear design, so it stays securely in place, even during long conversations. The NoiseBlocker earphone holds out 20dB or 80 percent of ambient noise, while the noise-canceling boom microphone reduces surrounding noise by up to 70 percent.
The QuietSpot comes with a series of interchangeable sleeves, so users can experiment to find the solution that fits and feels best. These include sleek style and comfortable, flexible ear wrap. Headsets are available in small, medium and large sizes, and the compressible foam flex sleeves allow for ease of one-handed placement, and mold to the ear for a personalized fit.
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.
