UFO by Bluetrek:
A new era begins
Simple, sophisticated, but also practical, Bluetrek’s UFO is a combination of chic design and comfort. This circular stunner is a compact and elegant lightweight accessory with an alluring leather-like 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: two with a metallic finish and two with a black, rubber-like finish; all four can be worn comfortably, even when wearing glasses. Measuring just under 4cm in size, the integrated circular speaker is an innovation in design and technology.
-UFO- Celestial comfort
The UFO’s lightweight oval shape (8grs) means it offers the ultimate in comfort. Unlike other headsets, the external speaker fits snugly on the ear and can be combined with the attachment of your choice to ensure you are free to converse with complete ease and in security. The UFO’s DSP function guarantees superb sound quality while eliminating noise interferences as well as unpredictable echoing.
-UFO, a headset that simplifies life
Busy users can save time as 2 to 4 telephone numbers can be pre-registered and called at the touch of a button. A display light system informs the user of weak battery levels and remaining standby time. In addition, the UFO boasts impressive call waiting options, allowing you to switch from one call to the other from your mobile phone or UFO Bluetooth device.
