Bluetrek M2 Headset
Cellphones regularly have options for customizable faceplates that let owners change the style of their phone without replacing it. Headset maker Bluetrek believes the same should apply to the Bluetooth headsets that many callers use. Their latest model, the M2 (pictured at right), can wear one of two solid colors (blue and red) or two chrome colors (black and champagne). The earpieces also last a long time at 9 hours of continuous talk time or 11 hours when idle. Bluetrek says the M2 is shipping in Britain now for £39 ($73); the company also sells its headsets in North America and should make them available for that continent soon.
