Jabra used the CTIA Wireless show, held here last week, to debut a Bluetooth stereo headset and a Bluetooth speakerphone.
The Halo stereo headset comes with the company's Noise Blackout technology and A2DP technology. It is engineered to let users connect to any Bluetooth music-playing device, as well as 3.5mm music-playing devices. It reportedly fades out music to allow for incoming calls.
Weighing 3 ounces, the Halo can switch between wireless and wired connectivity, said Jabra, and has Zirene Power Bass for audio enhancement.
It will be available in May for a $129 suggested retail.
The SP200 speakerphone ($59.99, available this month) features a single control button, a dedicated on/off switch and DSP technology to reduce background noise. It reportedly requires no installation.
Jabra said of the product: “The SP200 can be attached to virtually anything in your home or car (e.g. visor, dash, cup holder, kitchen cabinet, desk, bookshelf, etc.) for conference calls and hands-free talking while preparing dinner or making calls with the whole family.”
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.
