Trispecs: Better than X-Ray Specs Any Day
Gadgets are cool, but let's face it, carrying all that techno-swag can get a little burdensome after awhile. This is especially true when you're trying to answer your phone while listening to your MP3 player. And when you add a headset and headphones into the mix its just a FAIL all the way around. But Tri-Specs Inc. has created Trispecs in a stylish attempt to free you from your techie-clutter.
Now these may look like your average designer sunglasses, but don't be fooled. These shades are pulling triple duty as your Bluetooth headset, your headphones, and yes, a snazzy pair of sunglasses. You control your MP3 player and phone functions via the three buttons located on the arms of the shades. With the touch of a button you can be talking on the phone or rocking out to your favorite tunes sans pesky cords and gadget accessories.
The arms of the shades are a little bulky, but that's be expected when they're housing dual microphones, speakers, and Bluetooth connectivity. The retractable headphones are also noise-cancelling thanks to the good folks over at STEP Labs. Step also used their STEPvoice software to give these shades voice-recognition. That's right, just speak the name of the person you want to call and the Trispecs will take care of the rest, dialing the person up.
Priced between $199.00-$224.00, the women's line of Trispecs currently comes in black, white, red, blue. gold, and silver. The white and black versions of the shades give you the option to chose the color of the accents on the sides of the arms as well as the color. For example the black versions come in black and metallic black. All versions of the sunglasses come with the option to upgrade to the in-ear headphone option.
