Motopure H12 headset with gold and diamondsIf you are looking for that extra-special Christmas present for yourself and feel that your ear needs to have more attention from passersby, might we suggest treating yourself to one of only 100 special Motopure H12 Bluetooth headsets being manufactured by Motorola and luxury custom mobile phone maker Alexander Amosu? This sheik fashion-meets-technology statement is made from 18 karat gold (in your choice of yellow or white) and incorporates over 180 cut diamonds amassing a total of 3.47 carats. You can even choose to mix up your diamonds in the standard brilliant clear white, pink or even black color choices just to express your individuality.

Naturally something like this doesn’t come cheap. Before you jet over to Selfridges or Harvey Nicholls in London to place your order you should know that the base model, the bottom of the line, the cheapest one they’ve got will cost you $8,175 while the tricked out big blinged one that will transform your earlobe into a member of 50 Cent’s entourage runs $12,775 plus tax. All we have to say is that for that kind of price tag you not only better remember where you set your headset down but we suggest that you alarm it as well.

Motorola MOTOPURE H12 Bluetooth headsetMotorola has launched the latest in its “MOTO” line of products, this one being the MOTOPURE h12 Bluetooth headset. This little silver square headset features Motorola’s dual-microphone CrystalTalk technology for filtering out background noise, a diamond-cut high-gloss finish and a rated talk time of 5.5 hours and standby of about 8 days.

Review: Sound ID SM100 EarModule Bluetooth headset

Posted in Bluetooth,Headsets,Review by Darrin Olson on November 4th, 2007

SM100 EarModule Bluetooth headset from Sound IDOver the past week we’ve had the opportunity to try out Sound ID’s SM100 EarModule Bluetooth headset which resulted in a unanimous vote of “impressed” from those of us who spent some time with it. The headset seems pretty cool from its looks alone but there are also some less visible features that add to the uniqueness and value of the SM100. We tested the headset with the Motorola MOTOSLVR and the new Motorola MOTOROKR Z6m which were both very easy to connect.

For starters, and one of the most important things we watch for in these devices, is the general size and comfort. If you find yourself wanting a wireless headset its probably because you spend a fair amount of time talking on the phone and the last thing you need is something that’s too uncomfortable to wear for those multiple and long conversations. The comfort was not an issue for us with the SM100, and in fact after a few hours of wearing it I found myself once even having to check with my hand to see if it was in my ear. The headset measures about 1.75 inches by 1.0 inch by 1.2 inches and weighs only 0.4 ounces.

Sony Ericsson MBS-100 Bluetooth speakerSony Ericsson is touting this portable speaker stating it “looks as good as it sounds”, which makes us worry a little bit about the “sound” part. The 100mm sphere can connect wirelessly from your mobile phone through the A2DP Bluetooth stereo audio profile allowing you to stream music saved on your phone directly to the speaker and share your sounds without wires.

The 1.5 watt speaker in the MBS-100 is powered by a rechargeable battery that gives it up to 5 hours of playback with as many hours of charge time, or 50 hours of standby. It also comes packaged with a charger and a carrying bag so people don’t think you have some rotting fruit you’re carrying around. The specs say it comes in a single color of black but the press kit photos seem to have a touch of brown to them.

iHome IHC5S clock radio and speakers dock for Bluetooth cell phonesThe iHome iHC5S is one of those incredible multi-gadgets that pack maybe one-too-many features into a single system.

iHome has put together a clock radio that connects wirelessly via the Handsfree, Headset, AVRCP and A2DP Bluetooth profiles to give a system that integrates with Bluetooth enabled mobile phones. The Clock Radio Speaker System, as iHome descriptively calls it, has the ability to receive streaming music from your phone and play it through the 4 built-in stereo speakers. It also lets you control the playback through the system or an included remote control. The alarm clock also allows you to wake up to a buzzer, radio or the streamed music from your phone.
