Earloomz: Star Trek Bluetooth Communicators

On hear­ing that Ear­loomz had made a Star Trek Blue­tooth head­set, my sci-fi geek cov­et radar went ping­ing in­to over­drive. On re­ceiv­ing the head­set for re­view the geek side of me went squeeeeee like a lit­tle girl- in my head on­ly, of course. On sit­ting down to write the re­view, I was wor­ried that I might not be able to re­view the head­set ob­jec­tive­ly but my ra­tio­nal side piped up, locked the geek tem­porar­i­ly in the at­tic and said it was noth­ing but a head­set. I doubt you’d want to hear what my geek side is say­ing to the ra­tio­nal side right now.

Ear­loomz, LLC is a com­pa­ny that makes pret­ty sim­i­lar Blue­tooth head­phones with dif­fer­ent de­signs, from sports teams such as Lak­ers and Celtics to celebri­ties like La­dy Gaga, and plen­ty of tele­vi­sion and movie prop­er­ties as well. The com­pa­ny’s mot­to is “where art, fash­ion and tech­nol­o­gy meet”. I don’t know about that but I know they make beau­ti­ful head­sets.

Out of the box, the Ear­loomz Star Trek comes with 2 ear hooks, 4 dif­fer­ent sized ear­buds, a USB charg­ing ca­ble, lan­yard neck­lace, us­er man­u­al and the ev­er-im­por­tant war­ran­ty card. The de­vice is com­pat­i­ble with head­set and hands­free pro­files, and is al­so com­pat­i­ble with game con­soles. It has a voice prompt fea­ture and it can be syn­chro­nized to two dif­fer­ent phones, so you can go be­tween work and busi­ness or share it be­tween a cou­ple.

On fur­ther test­ing we found that the Ear­loomz eas­i­ly con­nect­ed to our de­vices and was good to go once it was charged. The head­set didn’t feel like a nice soft mas­sage on the ear but it didn’t feel like a Vul­can Nerve pinch ei­ther. With its 5 hour talk time, 30-60 minute recharge time and light weight , the Ear­loomz is a de­vice we like and would rec­om­mend es­pe­cial­ly to the fan­boys and girls out there. For those look­ing for a Blue­tooth head­set with style, they of­fer plen­ty of choic­es. For those in need of some­thing more so­phis­ti­cat­ed- noise can­celling, ul­tra-lightweight, or just plain su­per-com­fort­able- we’ve looked at plen­ty of oth­ers out there. For $60 or so, you get what you pay for- a sol­id head­set that you won’t mix up with any­one else. Live long and pros­per read­ers.

About the Author

In Gbemiga Sodipe's 28 years on this planet, he has lived on every continent but South America and has had a wide variety of jobs and experiences. He has worked as a Technical Writer for Microsoft in Beijing and as a coupon delivery guy in Springfield, Missouri. He loves books and is partial to Sci-Fi and Nonfiction but if you put any book in front of him his mind will be gone from this world and into the world of the book. Unless of course you put Uncle Toms Cabin or any book by L. Ron Hubbard in front of him, then he will first beat you to a bloody pulp with the book then commit what he considers to be one of his Seven Deadly Sins i.e. burn the book. In fact he for a time considered books much more interesting and less problematic than girls but that was during his early teenage years (ok maybe also every now and then but don’t tell his girlfriend that). Gbemiga speaks English and Mandarin Chinese fluently, understands but can’t speak Yoruba (to his mother’s eternal chagrin, even though it’s her fault) and knows the insults and swear words of 5 other languages (thank you International upbringing).
