Bluetooth technology has existed in mobile phone devices for some time now, allowing hands free communication to take place, resulting in a safer way to talk whilst driving for example. Bluetooth currently works using a small earpiece which is either internal or fitted around the ear. You know, the people who you think are talking to you, or even worse to themselves until you discover the concealed earpiece.
This new Bluetooth enabled gadget is more obvious than the earpiece counterpart, though it does mirror a dog collar somewhat. It does however, relieve those around you from thinking you're talking to yourself or are some kind of schizophrenic. The advantages of the collar design include the location of the microphone; almost attached to your voice box resulting in clearer sounds and alleviating the need to shout allowing others to listen in to private conversations.
Also, since the Roadrunner Bluetooth Headset fits around your neck, the ear canals are kept more secure. When you move your head about, perhaps if you're jogging, they are much less prone to fall out. The reported battery life on this is approximately 9 hours and retails in at $80.
