BlueAnt V12 headset
BlueAnt is boasting a number of features for its new Bluetooth headset, the V12. One of the more notable is vibration for incoming calls, which may be common on cellphones, but is rare for a device meant to be worn on the head. The headset also has an LCD display, which shows a 12-digit caller ID, as well as battery and volume levels. The V12 remembers the last ten calls moreover, and can be hooked up to a phone to check status through a Micro-USB neckstrap. The headset can pair with up to five Bluetooth devices and uses noise reduction to eliminate ambient sounds. A lithium-polymer battery provides up to 12 hours of talk time, or 15 days of standby. The list price of the V12 is $80, but J&R is taking preorders for $60.
