Paris, 13th November 2007 – Bluetrek, a brand of the Modelabs Group, announces today the launch
of its latest innovation, the UFO- an Undeniably Fashionable Object. This stunning Bluetooth
headset from its Fashion for Heads range is an innovative earpiece that is circular in shape and
design. A first in the world of Bluetooth accessories, the speaker fits comfortably on the ear rather than in it!
UFO by Bluetrek: A new era begins
- Lunar inspiration
Simple, sophisticated, but also practical, Bluetrek’s UFO is a combination of chic
design and comfort. This circular lightweight accessory is compact with an alluring finish. The UFO allows you to communicate for up to 6 hours and offers standby time of up to 8 days. You can personalise your look with a choice of four stylish ear hooks (available in two ear sizes) that can be used even when wearing glasses. With a diameter of only 3.3 cm, the headset is
also easy to carry and store.
UFO- Celestial comfort
Offering ultimate comfort and weighing 8 grams, the UFO is so light that you will forget that you are wearing it. Unlike other headsets, the external speaker sits neatly on the ear and can be combined with the ear hook of your choice to
ensure perfect fit, allowing you to converse with ease. The UFO’s DSP function guarantees superb sound quality while reducing noise interferences and echo cancellation.
UFO, a headset that simplifies life
To save time, two telephone numbers can be pre-registered and called at the touch of a button. A display light system lets you know when battery levels are low and indicates remaining standby time.
The Bluetrek UFO is also equipped with an advanced built-in Voice Alert (an option that the user can choose to activate or leave switched off). A pre-recorded voice alerts you to low battery levels and can also confirm your choice of function such as connecting or disconnecting your headset, redialling your last number, rejecting a call or contacting favourite numbers.
