Dallas - Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) introduced three Bluetooth headsets, all available through T-Mobile.
The HM3700 ($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.
