We’ve all been there, when we were kids. Seeing those people touch their left ear, and secretly saying something into a headset was so cool. Then when we grew up, and had the money to buy a headset for our phones, it just didn’t feel the same.
Maybe there is a chance to regain some of that “cool’ once again with the Invisio G5 headset. Nextlink usually produces headsets for S.W.A.T. teams and special branches of the military, so if you’re lucky, there might even be some ear wax on it from a guy who can kill you in six different ways using just his bare hands. Awesome!
The pedigree is certainly a wow-factor we like, but after a long sip of coffee (or your drink of choice), the novelty does wear out a little. Luckily, Invisio has a little extra in the goodie bag for us: the G5 is quite small. They call it the world’s smallest Bluetooth headset. Not sure about that, but 3.3 cm long, 1.6 cm wide, and weighing in at 6 grams, it makes for a rather small headset. It even has a party piece more; it’s protective casing, which is sort of like the Barry Bonds of protective casings. The headset itself has 4 hours of talk and 150 hours of stand-by, but the protective casing is juiced up so it charges the G5 every time it’s placed there. That gives you 20 hours of talk time and 30 days stand-by. With that much stamina, you almost need to buy a Philips 9@9 Xenium model to find out what can last the longest.
And one last thing…it has something called Soft Spring, which claims to make it fit better when you’re wearing eye gear. Good news, if you plan on becoming an international man of mystery, then there is no need to ditch the shades or the Austin Powers glasses.
Oh sorry, what was that? We were just humming the theme from Mission Impossible…
