sennheiser EZX 60 Bluetooth HeadsetToday, we’re reviewing Sennheiser’s Bluetooth headset, the EZX 60. The EZX 60 is a no-frills, lightweight, noise-cancelling Bluetooth 2.1 headset with long battery life.

The EZX 60 is a BT 2.1 +EDR set with compatibility with BT 1.1, 1.2 and 2.0, and the talk time is rated at up to 7.5 hours.

Introduction. Having been always impressed by Sennheiser’s audio quality in their headphones, I was eager to take their shot at Bluetooth headsets for a test drive. I was not disappointed. I’ll break it down by a few key areas.

Aliph Jawbone Icon bluetooth headset has its own operating system, runs apps

Bluetooth headset maker Aliph’s latest headset, the Jawbone Icon has some features that are sure to cause some serious gadget envy. Perhaps the most interesting one has to be that this headset has its very own operating system that can be updated and that can run apps. Yes, that’s right, applications. On a bluetooth headset.

Aliph has a website that you can log into, attach your heaset to your computer via USB, and then push apps directly to it. For example, you can customize the Icon with audio and/or dial apps. The audio apps can change the sound of the voices on your headset.

Review: iTech SolarVoice 908 – Solar-Powered Bluetooth Headset

itech solarvoice 908 bluetooth headsetLast year, we reviewed the iTech SolarCharger 906 which we quite liked. Now we have a chance to test out another iTech’s solar-powered products – the SolarVoice 908.

For starters, I was excited to try out a headset that could be solar powered. Living in Southern Cal, I envisioned having a headset that never ran out of juice, although on further reflection, I realize this may not be the case in many other areas with fewer days of sunshine. In those instances though, the provided USB charger would work as a great backup. However, as I tried charging the headset using solar power only, I realized the challenges of doing so – the headset will only charged if turned in certain specific orientations to the light, some of which require odd angles achieved by shifting the position of the over-the-ear plastic piece.

More options for wireless (Bluetooth) earbuds/headphones

Following up yesterday’s entry on the DigiFi Opera S5 wireless earbuds, we thought it would be a good idea to give you a few more options for going wireless over your lobes.

Here are 4 more headsets, all Bluetooth that give you a chance to get rid of those pesky cords, well most of the cords anyway!

1st on the list is a set of headphones from Sony. The specific model # is DR-BT22. These on-ear headphones have a 30ft range, weigh under 3 oz, folds up can be used to take a phone call, and can control basic iPod functions from the headset. $96.

The Ripple Bluetooth Headset

The Ripple Bluetooth Headset

Bluetooth headsets have never really been the epitome of style. Presenting The Ripple – coming from the designer Ilya Fridman, this headset is a small, circular disk with ‘ripples’ emitting from the center which is also a small button used to control the device.

Without knowing what it actually was, most people would just assume it’s a very modern and very large earring, but part of the circle flips outwards to reveal the microphone and when a conversation is over, you can press the center button to keep the headset active for listening to music.

Review: Audio Bone Headphones

With a somewhat weird name that doesn’t make sense until you understand how it works, the Audio Bone Headphones operate by conducting sound via the bones in your face directly to your inner ear. This means you don’t actually insert anything into your ears or place anything over your ears. These headphones connect with the bones directly in front of your ears.

I ran the Audio Bone headset through its paces to see if it performed as well as advertised. I was initially surprised to find that there was remarkably more of a frequency response than I had expected, and a side benefit of not having to wear a (potentially) uncomfortable set of ear plugs or headphones, and these were nice and light. Unfortunately, that’s where the positives ended.
