Joby rolls out Zivio designer BT headset

updated 04:15 pm EST, Thu January 3, 2008

Joby Zivio

Joby said today that it would take Bluetooth headsets upscale at CES with the Zivio. The company's first earpiece is not just comparatively stylish but one of the very few to offer a retractable microphone boom. Adding this extension improves outgoing clarity for a phone call in noisy conditions; with a shorter distance to the mouth, the microphone is less likely to be hobbled by strong winds, according to Joby. The Zivio is likewise purported to be easier to wear with a removable, ball-mounted ear hook that pivots to hang depending on the ear's shape.

Battery life is rated at about 10 hours for the headset, which works with any hands-free capable cellphone or computer and will formally launch at CES in multiple metallic colors (including copper and pink). The cost and availability of the Zivio have yet to be unveiled but should be revealed in the near future and may appear along with the accessory's appearance at the show.
