[New Hop-on hands-free RF headset delivers wireless cellphone connection for $39.99.]
Irvine, CA -- Hop-on.com, Inc. today announced that it will exhibit its hands-free wireless headset at the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show that runs from January 6 to 9, 2005 in Las Vegas. This unique and stylish product utilizes RF wireless technology and consists of a belt clip base unit and a lightweight wireless headset for comfortable extended wear.
With a manufacturer's suggested retail price of only $39.99, it provides a compelling value to consumers and is simple to use. To operate, simply plug the base unit into the headset jack of any cell phone and it transmits crystal clear sound to the wireless headset earpiece. There is a convenient on/off switch on the wireless earpiece to answer calls and its sound-absorbent padding allows you to hear the person you're speaking to without any outside interference. The rechargeable batteries provide 5 hours of continuous talk time and up to 2 weeks of standby time from anywhere within a 30 foot range of the base unit.
Dan Gannon, Chief Executive Officer of Hop-on, commented, "Hop-on's new RF headset is a practical and much less costly solution than existing Bluetooth technology. The use of Bluetooth technology is overkill for this type of application. Additionally, the average Bluetooth headset is extremely expensive at an average price of $100 per unit. RF technology has been perfected to have the same voice qualities as Bluetooth at a fraction of the cost."
