Jabra’s new FreeSpeak Bluetooth headset is one of the smallest and most elegant to be announced to date – and fortunately, it comes with a price that matches the size.

2002 is truly becoming the year that Bluetooth finally arrived, with products of all kinds suddenly appearing making use of the technology, from handhelds to mobile phones, dishwashers (yes, it’s true) and of course also Bluetooth headsets. In the near future, it’s very likely that mobile phones as we see them everywhere today will be banished to pockets and briefcases, leaving us to stretch our necks to see whether a person is having a conversation by spotting whether the headset LED is on or not.

Jabra will soon be contributing to the craze with its new Bluetooth 1.1-compliant FreeSpeak Bluetooth headset, scheduled to arrive in U.S. retail stores in September 2002. The FreeSpeak works, similar to other Bluetooth headsets, with compatible Bluetooth-enabled phones – but also has a leg up on the competition; the headset can also be bought with a Bluetooth adapter that connects to mobile phones with a 2.5mm handsfree set jack to Bluetooth-enable these.

The first option that will be available is the headset only for use with Bluetooth phones, which includes an integrated holder/charger with a built-in clip for wearing on a belt or purse, which has a suggested retail price of $99 USD. The second option is the headset and adapter pair for use with non-Bluetooth phones, where the multi-function holder/charger is also the Bluetooth adapter. This option has a suggested retail price of $179 USD.

Weighing in at 0.8oz (23g), the JABRA FreeSpeak is made of a soft, sound-absorbing elastomer material that is constructed to reduce distortions, resulting in crisp sound quality according to Jabra. The earpiece also features the new intra-aura Jabra-developed MiniGel, which is an evolution of the company’s patented EarGel. This soft, ergonomic gel tip fits on the earpiece and channels sound into the ear canal to enhance reception and clarity.
