Who needs an FM radio headset?

Another reason we think Brando churns out products just to meet a quota.


Sometimes we wonder if product developers at Hong Kong-based Brando have a quota to fill on new releases. What else could possibly explain the thinking behind such creations as aromatherapy speakers, mouse label makers, and an MP3 stylus?

That's the only reason we can come up with, anyway, for its latest offering--a Bluetooth headset with a built-in FM radio, as seen on Coolest-Gadgets. Given all the choices there are on the market for wireless headsets, we seriously doubt that an integrated radio is going to tip the scales in favor of this one, especially for $53. At that price, the least they could do is throw in a fan or something.
