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.
