If the $1,275 Serene cell phone is a little out of your price range, but you still want to get some high-end audio coupled with just a smidget of elegance, I have just the answer for you. I didn’t know that Bang & Olufsen was going to take this whole cell phone business so seriously, but they have just announced a new Bluetooth headset dubbed the EarSet 2. Yeah, I know. The name just doesn’t have the same ring to it as “Serene.”
To be available in Korea only (at least for the time being), the Bang & Olufsen Bluetooth EarSet 2 features a fold-away microphone and the company’s “Hi-Fi speaker technology.” The design is certainly a departure from conventional Bluetooth headsets, boasting quite the large speaker to go with the not so big microphone.
Expected retail price is 380,000 KRW, or about US$413.
