Nokia BH-905 Bluetooth Headset Debuts


By Shane McGlaun

I am not a big fan of Bluetooth headsets. I think they have their place, like when you are trying to drive in a manual transmission car. However, if you use one while say walking in the mall you should be kicked in the balls (or punched in the ovaries if more appropriate).

If you are into music on your phone, most go for ear buds because they are compact and don’t look as strange on your head as say your massive headphones from 1984. Nokia has announced a new Bluetooth headset called the BH-905 that is quite large. The massive size looks like something you would see with a home stereo rather than a mobile phone or MP3 player.

The huge headset supports stereo streaming music and has microphones (yes there are more than two) for placing and receiving calls. Bluetooth headsets with two mics are common today and a pair wasn’t good enough for Nokia. The BH-905 has two mics for picking up the user’s voice, and eight of them for picking up external sounds to be blocked. The headset will go on sale globally in August at about EUR 285.
