Today with the new bluetooth devices coming out in force you’re no longer wired to your mobile devices. Today we look at one such accessory that puts more “Mobile” in your bluetooth enabled mobile phone.
Ultra products is based in Fletcher, Ohio and offers a wide range of products (too many to list here). We’re talking PSU’s, cases, Bluetooth headsets, case cooling, Memory and more. Today’s technology is ever changing and almost all us have and use a cell phone. The first cell phones were huge and clumsy but they evolved to sleek and sexy. The one drawback was the headsets or ear pieces were all wired. I was constantly getting the wire caught on things. With the introduction of bluetooth enabled phones came wireless headsets, for which I am eternally grateful. That’s what we are looking at today. The Ultra Mini Bluetooth Headset.
Just a few words about today’s blister packs, as in plastic that is almost bullet proof. I had to use a razor knife to get into this Fort Knox of packaging. On the other hand I like to think of my stuff safe and sound in good packaging as it finds its way to me. I mean this stuff is so tough that if I were going down in a plane I would want to be in a larger size of this thing. So what am I saying here? I’m saying that of the two choices of easy open package or a tough (Let’s get out the chainsaw) package, I’m going for the second one.
So as you can see from the picture you get two foam ear pieces, a velvet pouch for your headset , a wall charger, the ear piece, charger plug, Lanyard headset keeper, And a User’s guide.
Let’s see what Ultra says about it.

I’ll be comparing the performance of this headset with the Motorola HS850 Bluetooth and all of this will be done on a Razr V3.
Let’s begin with the styling. It has a very sleek look and the blue LEDS make for an eye-appealing light weight headset.
