First Look: BlueAnt's Q3 headset is small, light, and smart

1:23 /

For $99, the new BlueAnt Q3 Bluetooth headset offers clear hands-free chatting in a small package.

Hi. This is Brian Bennett for CNET.com. And right now, we're taking a first look at the BlueAnt Q3 Bluetooth headset. This device costs $99, and is the follow-up to BlueAnt's popular Q2 model. Like the Q2, the Q3 is relatively small, light, and sports a curve shape that's thin and slender. The front has a meshed surface to guard against wind noise, along with a command button and an indicator light. On the side closest to your ear sits a volume rocker and micro-USB port for charging. Placed on the Q3's inside edge is the headset's tiny power switch, which is a little difficult to flip unless you remove the earpiece from your ear. To ensure good call quality, the headset features two microphones: one at the tip, and one at the front. Also included in the box are a variety of rubber air tips, some with stabilizers, and some without. You can also attach an ear loop to the Q3 for more stability. The Q3 also connects to free BlueAnt Android and iOS apps. It lets you activate the headset's ability to read text messages out loud as your phone receives them, plus, have a reference to the various voice commands the device accepts. BlueAnt also says the Q3 is compatible with Siri and Google Voice Actions. I'm Brian Bennett for CNET.com, and this has been a first look at the BlueAnt Q3.
