Sleek, curved, and rounded

The BlueAnt Q3, like the Q2 model before it, is crafted in smooth curves and has a thin profile.

Flip it around to switch it on

On the inside edge of the BlueAnt Q3 sits its power switch. That means you'll have to turn it on before placing the device in your ear.

A screen that blocks the wind

The front side of the BlueAnt Q3 features a perforated surface that acts to block wind noise. An indicator light and a command button are here as well.

Small and sporty

Because of its small size, once you've donned the BlueAnt Q3 you may forget it's there.
