Swarovski disease infects Bluetooth
The crystal-covered gadget is a part of the Philips-Swarovski "Active Crystals" collection and sports five hours of talk time.
The "Swarovski disease"--as former Crave master Mike Yamamototo bedazzle every gadget the tech world holds dear--has struck us right in the ear.
But with, it was only a matter of time before more made it to market.
In a way, it makes more sense to have a Swarovski-crystal-covered Bluetooth headset. Since the device is hung on the ear, it may be mistaken for a giant piece of jewelry.
The company says its Breeze Black Bluetooth 2.0 headset is compatible with any Bluetooth-enabled phone, and offers up to 5 hours of talk time and 100 hours of standby time.
The gadget is a new addition to the Philips-Swarovski. The jewels were set in the Swarovski Pointiage technique, meaning they were applied by hand instead of using prongs and glue.
The headset costs $260 and can only be purchased at Swarovski stores. I know what you're thinking: "That would look great!" Is there a cure for this affliction?
