all this while, Bluetooth-based accessories makers have been peddling Bluetooth headset that’s either too cumbersome (read: awful) or only offers audio streaming in mono. both are the very reasons why we, style-conscious freaks, shy away from them. however, things are looking to change with the Plantronics BackBeat GO. what looks like a set of regular in-ear buds is actually a full-fledge Bluetooth headset that, when paired with a smartphone, allows you to enjoy A2DP audio streaming and take calls. other key features include digital noise reduction technology for improved call clarity, inline remote with built-in mic for taking calls, skip tracks and adjust volume, and up to 4.5 hours of listening or talk time and 10 hours of standby time. you can get yours for $99.99 a pop. check out a few more look after the break.
