Samsung Brings Quarter-Sized Headset to the US

Posted in Bluetooth,Headsets,Samsung by Darrin Olson on September 13th, 2007

Samsung WEP500 Bluetooth headset is no larger than a quarterSamsung has a very small-sized Bluetooth headset now available in the US market, measuring only about the diameter of a quarter and 7.7mm thick. The WEP500 headset uses wireless Bluetooth to connect to a mobile phone and provide hands free convenience through a headset that’s less noticeable than most.

The WEP500 advertises only 3.5 hours of talk time and 80 hours of standby which implies that Samsung might have skimped on battery to keep the device small. It also comes with a small hard case to keep the device in, which think is probably the coolest part of the whole product. The new Bluetooth headset retails for $119.

nX6000 Bluetooth Headset Reviewed

Posted in Bluetooth,Headsets,Review by Reuben Drake on September 9th, 2007

CellPoint nX6000 Bluetooth headset is small, easy to use and has excellent noise cancellationCellPoint has recently acquired a couple of Bluetooth headset product lines from Gennum, one of which is called the nX6000 and we recently had the opportunity to review it here at the ‘Brick. This model wasn’t Gennum’s first crack at the mobile headset market. Prior to this version was the nXZEN PLUS 5500 and in our opinion they’ve done quite a nice job with improving the look while still maintaining a very quality product.

There are a few main features of the nX6000 that are important to point out, which are also key things we look for when choosing a good headset, the first of these being its size. This device measures only 1.75 x 0.8 x 0.5 inches and weighs a mere 0.38 ounces making it a feasible solution for multiple continuous hours of comfortable use. It comes packaged with 3 different sizes of ear tips and 2 different sized ear hooks. The ear tips are designed to fit slightly inside your ear which makes a much clearer sound and helps keep the device in place. Some headsets that do not do this will flop around when the wearer moves their head, making a loose feel. Even with glasses the device was easy to wear and fit comfortably.

Panasonic D-Snap Player Adds Bluetooth

Posted in Bluetooth,Media Players,MP3,Panasonic by Reuben Drake on August 29th, 2007

Panasonic D-Snap media player now also has Bluetooth 2.0As you might notice by the additional little logo on the front, Panasonic has upgraded its D-Snap MP3 player to now include Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity. The new D-Snap SV-SD950N has also added a couple buttons on the front to let its player hook up wirelessly with your Bluetooth phone, hands-free car unit or a Bluetooth stereo headset.

Aside from the added connectivity the D-Snap appears to be the same, still featuring its special noise canceling and comes packaged with a 1GB SD card. The only other changes, which are not quite as cool, are a decreased battery life due to the Bluetooth running and an increased price. The D-Snap SV-SD950N is expected to hit shelves in Japan on September 21.
