Earloomz Introduces Star Wars Bluetooth Headsets
As a long recovered former hardcore Star Wars geek, I tend to unsee most licensed products within about a minute (which has had the side effect of keeping my cluttered work space a bit less busy). However, the folks at Earloomz and Lucasfilm Ltd. have finally managed to use their Jedi mind tricks on me (and rather successfully at that). So here you go: a peek at their first four Star Wars themed Bluetooth headsets. Created with form and function in mind, these officially licensed headsets feature iconic images of Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and The Empire Strikes Back’s climactic ’Dark Duel.’
Available on Earloomz' web site as we speak for $69.99, you'll get the company's patented, buttons-free design, Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR technology, noise cancellation, Mic noise reduction, lower power consumption, voice prompt and even multi-device compatibility (yes, with game consoles too!). You'll also most likely get people looking at you in public with a nod and a smile before they stroll up and ask where you bought that wickedly cool headset from. When this occurs, you could be smugly thinking "The Force is strong with this one..." but it's a busy world these days, Padawan. Just point them to Earloomz and get back to that conversation you were having.
Expect to see more characters from the saga as Yoda, R2-D2, C-3PO, Princess Leia, Darth Maul, Chewbacca, Jabba the Hutt, Han Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi and more are planned for release later this year. OK, where's Admiral ("It's A Trap!") Ackbar? Guess I'll keep my eyes peeled for him at some point...
