Sleek, curved, and rounded

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

A kit with options

Inside the BlueAnt Q3's box you'll find multiple rubbery eartips plus an ear loop attachment to add more stability.

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.

Slip on an ear loop

You can slip on an ear loop for a more secure fit.

Small and sporty

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