March 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — CTIA Wireless 2007 — Motorola today announced the newest addition to its industry-leading portfolio of Bluetooth enabled products, the Motorola Bluetooth Headset H680. This design marks the beginning of a new generation of highly fashionable, discreet headsets from Motorola’s design team that balances style with high performance.
Adding an air of elegance to its suite of Bluetooth enabled headsets, the sophisticated appearance of the H680 is complemented by lengthy talk times for its micro size. Compared to other headsets in its category, the H680 provides up to approximately eight hours of talk time and approximately eight days of standby time.
“Since our first headset more than five years ago, Motorola has continued to introduce industry-leading Bluetooth enabled products to consumers,” said Greg Estell, Corporate Vice President and General Manager, MobileME, Motorola, Inc. “H680 is perfect for users who have been waiting for a more discreet and elegant option, but are not willing to compromise on performance.”
With a lustrous metallic finish on the sides and a glass-like finish top, the H680 catapults to luxury status. “Our goal is to create a more richly integrated and consistent user experience, both visually and functionally, across Motorola devices and accessories. We want consumers to look at Motorola products as objects of desire in addition to objects of necessity. We must continue to build strong emotional connections with the consumer,” stated Scott Wilson, Design Director, MobileME, Motorola, Inc.
The latest speaker and ear bud/ear hook innovation in the H680 also demonstrates Motorola’s expertise and leadership in Bluetooth headset ergonomics. The ear bud helps provide stronger audio quality with closer placement to the ear, while interchangeable ear cushions help to offer unrivaled wearing comfort. The ultra-light, ultra-comfortable ear hook helps supply additional stability and rotates, allowing users to point the microphone directly towards their mouth so conversations can be heard clearly.
The headset is complemented by a stylish and functional portable case that charges and helps protect the headset. Simply place the headset in the case and plug in a wall charger or car charger (sold separately) to recharge the headset.
Availability H680 is expected to be available in Q3 2007. For more information on product availability and pricing, please visit www.motorola.com or contact your local Motorola representative.
