First Look: Iqua 603 Sun Bluetooth Headset

1:24 /

Though the Iqua Sun may not look like much, its solar power source makes it a great choice for those wanting a Bluetooth headset with an eco-friendly bent.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> I'm Nicole Lee, Associate editor for CNET.com and this is the Iqua 603 Sun Bluetooth headset. It is named the Iqua Sun because it is apparently the world's first solar power Bluetooth headset and indeed this sort of solar panel you see on the front here takes up light and converts it into solar energy. So, theoretically you just charge it for the first time with the AC charger for like 2 or 3 hours and after that you're good to go. Iqua says that the rated talk time is around 12 hours and the rated stand-by time theoretically is infinite. As you can see, it's a pretty basic Bluetooth headset. The multifunction button is on the front and so you press the top portion of it. On the side you get the typical volume rocker. On the back you get the typical in-ear styled ear piece. So, design wise it's a pretty normal looking Bluetooth headset, but as we said if you want an eco-friendly Bluetooth headset, this is probably the one to get. We've had it indoors under regular office lights for a whole week and it's still flashing and for only around $99 for a headset, exactly a pretty affordable considering you only have to charge it once. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Iqua 603 Sun Bluetooth headsets. ^M00:01:21 [ Music ]
