Bluetooth headsets have been out for several years now but they have not changed much at all. In fact they still make it look as if you walked off the set of Start Trek and they are small enough to make people think you are talking to yourself.  Earlier this year, Plantronics decided to bring some style to the market with the release of their Discovery 925.  Aside from boasting a fashionable look, these headsets come with a leather charging case and plenty of interesting features

Unique Design

The Plantronics Discovery 925 is compact and about the size of a big paper clip.  There is a square diamond at the top while the boom mic tapers down to form a triangular shape in the center.  The Discovery 925 is as light as it looks, weighing in at about 0.28 ounces.  The headset offers great comfort and surely will not weigh your ear down.  After a while you might forget that it is even on.  While it is definitely more stylish the average Bluetooth headset, people may not notice even how trendy you look because of the small size.

Everybody remembers their first pair of walkie talkies.  Whether you and your mates were reenacting battle scenes, or spending the night discussing your latest dating strategies, it all made for great fun.  Unfortunately, you were lucky to get a range over a few feet away.  In fact, your first set probably didn’t extend pass the room you were in, putting restrictions on those explosive secret missions you guys set out on.   Determined to get your parent’s moneys worth, you make due, have the time of your life and put the toys to use until they over-and-out themselves into a dysfunctional state.

Siemens has added more value to its successful Gigaset E455 model with a new technology called ECO DECT.  I have enjoyed a hands on experience with this innovative phone to see what it can do.

Still Easy to Use

The Gigaset E455 was designed with the user in mind, making it much easier to cope with the strain of everyday communications.  This phone stands out from previous models with its effortless and functional interface and added durability. The incorporation of rubber sealing around the handset and internal membrane provides reliable protection against the common issues of dirt and water splashes.  The Gigaset E455 complies with the DIN IP 54 standard, meaning it can survive light sprinkles of rain and dust particles.

Sennheiser is a company that seems to rarely get the spotlight they deserve, despite the fact that they are constantly developing high quality products. In fact, they have been going strong for decades, capitalizing on technology and bringing us some of the most innovative products on the market.  Although we are most certainly not a Sennheiser spokesperson, the acclaim is well deserved.  Even with their low-key image, Sennheiser is still probably the first name that comes to mind when thinking of a company that produces high-end audio products.  Sure, their lineup will set you back a few euros, but anyone familiar with the brand can tell you that it is usually well worth the price.  This brings us to the PXC 450, a set of noise-cancelling headphones that pack a hefty price and a high performance punch to match.
