LAS VEGAS, January 8 /PRNewswire/ --
- Headsets Feature EarClick Technology in Multimedia and Communication Earbuds for Maximum Comfort and Versatility
CellPoint Connect AB, developer of high-end Bluetooth headsets today announced the launch of the Flamingo Wired Headset line featuring the Flamingo Music and the Flamingo Mobile versions at the 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Wired Headsets have been recognized by the CES Innovation Awards and feature the comfortable and secure fit of the EarClick wearing technology. The headsets will be available in a variety of colors and will be on display at CES, the world's largest annual trade show for consumer technology, January 7-10, 2008 at Booth #72467 at the Sands Convention Center.
The EarClick wearing technology has earned a multitude of accolades for its unobtrusive design that fits the outer ear, creating a secure but weightless fit that minimizes the "wearer's fatigue" of traditional headsets. The headsets come with a patent-pending system of six adjustable pads, providing a customizable fit. The Wired headsets are optimized for active lifestyles, as the EarClick design provides a secure fit that moves with the user and stays secure during a variety of activities, including running and biking. Furthermore, EarClick allows outside air and sound to flow into one's ear, ensuring situational awareness in addition to preventing the build up of pressure, sweat, and unhealthy conditions that are problematic in traditional in-ear wearing styles.
"The release of the Innovation Honoree Wired Headsets is the first step in the expansion of CellPoint's portfolio since the successful acquisition and merger of Gennum's headset business unit," said Katarina Henriksson, CEO of CellPoint Connect AB. "The addition of Flamingo Music and Flamingo Mobile to our product line represents a major step in bringing the comfort of EarClick technology to a wider demographic."
Flamingo Music is designed for use with iPods(TM), MP3 players and other music devices, home and personal audio and video systems, and console and portable gaming systems. The Flamingo Mobile headset, designed for iPhones(TM) and other multimedia-capable phones, includes a microphone for communications applications which adds the ability to make and receive phone calls as well as enjoy superb stereo sound from multimedia applications. The headsets also have acoustically modelled enclosures to maximize audio performance and minimize frequency loss.
The Wired Headsets will be featured within the expanding CellPoint lineup at CES, January 7-10, 2008 at Booth #72467 at the Sands Convention Center, as well as an advance look for the press at CES Unveiled on January 5th.
