Plantronics has unveiled the new Bluetooth headset called the Blacktop 500. The headset is designed for people who are on the road a lot including professional drivers looking for a comfortable headset for their smartphone. The headset has a single ear speaker and microphone boom.
Rather than being a small device that hangs off your ear, this headset has a hoop that goes around the top of your head like over the ear headphones. The ear cup is highly padded and the headset comes with a car charger to keep it powered indefinitely. The headset is good for up to 10 hours of continuous use per charge while on battery.
The headset connects to smartphones using Bluetooth, but has a wire with clip on Bluetooth controls that you can attach to your shirt or other piece of clothing. The headset has noise cancellation technology for the microphone and can be used with your computer via a USB connector. The headset is available right now for $129.99.
