Dual microphones, capacitive volume control, a built-in six-band equaliser, and the ability to pair with eight phones make the Spracht Aura EQ bluetooth headset sound as insanely futuristic as it looks. Heck, it might make bluetooth headsets appealing again. Maybe.
I'm not - and suspect that I never will be - crazy about any sort of headset, but the robotic alien symbiotic look of the Aura puts it among the more appealing headsets I've seen in a while and it doesn't hurt that it's got more features than it can handle phones. Considering that the gadget will go for about $US80 when it hits shelves in March, I'd say it might be a hit. [Engadget]
