Military-grade Bluetooth ear jewellery launched

Are you fed-up with your Bluetooth headset falling off mid sky-dive? Well worry no more.

Are you fed-up with your Bluetooth headset falling off mid sky-dive? Well worry no more. Plantronics has introduced what it claims is a Bluetooth earpiece designed for “the adventurer in us all”.

“Everyday life can be rough on electronics, so Plantronics developed a headset that can be work as hard as you; it can be dropped repeatedly, worn in the rain and still work properly,” says Eric Extier, Plantronics’s consumer division head. “The Explorer 370 delivers a quality headset in a durable package that can withstand tough environments, including windy and dusty work conditions, rugged outdoor adventures or anything life throws at you.”

Durability tested to meet IP54 military-grade specifications apparently, the Explorer 370 retails for around £29. Not sure how much the military grade head to go with it costs though? Somehow the idea of Bruce Willis or Jason Bourne sporting the frankly daft looking Bluetooth ear-mounted technology doesn’t ring true but you never know.
