Dallas – Samsung
Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) introduced three Bluetooth headsets,
all available through T-Mobile.
($59.99) dual Bluetooth headset is designed for consumers looking for a
conventional noise-canceling Bluetooth headset with the ability to stream
stereo audio. While it can be worn as a mono-style headset for placing and
receiving calls, it can also transform into a stereo Bluetooth headset when
connected to the included ear buds.
Features include dual-mic
noise and echo cancellation; multipoint technology and active pairing; and
Samsung’s Android app, FreeSync, which offers LED settings, language selection,
text-to-speech messaging, caller ID services, and the ability to enable or
disable Bluetooth headset functions.
The HM3700 has up
to six hours of talktime, 180 hours of standby time and five hours of play time.
It comes in gray.
The second model,
the HS3000 ($69.99), is a clip-on stereo headset with ear buds, active pairing,
multi-connection technology, Sound Alive stereo enhancement technology,
single-mic noise cancellation and echo cancellation. It uses APT-X technology,
an optional lossless codec that can be used in the Bluetooth Stereo profile and
results in low latency.
The HS3000 has up
to seven hours of talktime, 170 hours of standby time and six hours of play
time. It comes in black/gray.
The last new
headset, the HM1700 ($39.99), is billed as an affordable and stylish headset.
Features include single-mic noise canceling, wind-noise reduction and voice-prompt
capabilities. It has nine hours of talktime, 350 hours of standby and up to
eight hours play time. It comes in gray and magenta.
