The Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2 comes in left- and right-ear versions

Bose has unveiled its new Bluetooth headset. The Series 2 headset features the same form factor as the original, but now comes in left- and right-ear versions. A2DP streaming has also been added, alongside Bose's Adaptive Audio Adjustment technology that automatically adjusts the speaker volume in response to changes in ambient noise levels - keeping the volume down when in a quiet office and pumping up the volume when you step out in to a busy street, for example.

Other improvements include a new internal antenna to improve reception with a mobile phone stowed away in a pocket, and dual microphones that work in conjunction with Bose's proprietary signal processing technology to filter out background noise and reduce wind noise. Answering a phone call is done with a simple top-to-bottom pinching motion on the unit's buttons, with labeled LED indicators displaying the battery life and Bluetooth connection status.

The Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2 comes with small, medium and large flexible silicone StayHear tips, a portable zipper case, one-foot (0.3 m) USB cable, and a power adapter with fold-flat prongs. It is currently available through the Bose website for US$149.95.

This love of technology continued through a number of university courses and crappy jobs until 2008, when his interests found a home at Gizmag. All articles by Darren Quick

Can you have them connected to different phones or will having two of them just give you stereo sound.

Actually given my level of hearing loss, and the tonal differences between the ears I understand much better when I can hear with both ears.
