Altec Lansing has unveiled a new Bluetooth headset at this year's CES. The Backbeat 903/6 was created alongside the Bluetooth earpiece specialist outfit, Plantronics.
In fact, the Altec Lansing utilises Plantronic's dual-mic audioIQ technology within the BackBeat 903/6 which will enable users to dial by voice, transfer calls from headset to the phone and back and redial numbers.
The BackBeat 903/6 Bluetooth headset also includes a transmitter which endows mobile handsets such as the Apple iPhone with Bluetooth A2DP for streaming music and has a Bluetooth operating range from a paired handset of 33 feet and will become available in February at $130 with Apple iPhone transmitter or $100 without.
"The new Backbeat 906 wireless earphones are engineered for superior acoustic accuracy, balance, and clarity... without getting tangled up in wires and cords," stated Bernice Cramer, VP of Marketing for Altec Lansing to the Wired website. "We think users are going to love the amazing new design and fit, as well as automatically opening up the mic to their surroundings with just the touch of a button."
