The BW 900 - not a car, but a headset


Sennheiser calls their new wireless headset "Business Class." After using it for a week, I'd upgrade it to "First Class."

What's so great about it? There's little or no noise pollution, meaning you can hear every word of a conversation. The engineers at the company call it "Proprietary Adaptive Intelligence." Even when you change envirornments (i.e, from your office phone to your cell), the 900 adjusts for the acoustics. (There's a button that allows you to toggle between phones.)

It's got a 100 meter range and also works with smart phones, and of course it's compatible with all voice-enabled Bluetooth devices like PDAs and even VoIP-enabled computers or laptops.

And don't worry about running out of battery time - you have unlimited talk time with the use of a second, exchangeable battery. Just switch the battery mid-call to extend the conversation. I managed it without the person on the other end even knowing.

The Goose-neck boom can be rotated 180° for optimal comfort and positioning of microphone, and as much as I don't like the "Time Life Operator Look," it's so discreet that you don't see the "boomlet" as much.

With the noise cancelling microphone, unwanted ambient noise is blocked out (even the pups barking during a conference call.) . Sennheiser includes adjustable earpieces for a customized fit in three sizes.

The only thing not to love is the price at $389.95, but if you can expense-account it you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. You can find it at Amazon and other electronics retailers.
