Motorola T-505 Bluetooth KitMotorola has found a way to make FM modulation actually sound bearable and has taught it some new tricks.
[ background music ] >> There are a gazillion products out there that are in the category of clip-on, visor, Bluetooth, hands free thing. This one's different. Motorola's Rocker T505, obviously part of the whole Rocker music brand. This is a different shape, but most importantly a very different function. What I've got here is a music device, as well as a hands-free device, using Bluetooth and FM. So here's how it works. Bluetooth connection from here to let's say my Motorola phone, and then that is sending the music via FM transmitter, hello, to the FM radio. That's been done before and usually sounds like hell. But this is different. They're using a DSP in here that I got to tell you, at least in this environment, sounds particularly robust to me. The other nice trick is there's a button on the back here, it's a station finder. And you press that, if you're in a bad area for a given frequency, it'll seek out the next frequency and tell you what to tune to. >> One hundred and six point one. >> Okay, it says go to one oh six point one, so I tune to one oh six one, and I should have a nice, clean transmission, my music should be waiting for me. [ background music ] Sure enough, there it is. Let's crank it up. ^M00:01:11 [ music ] ^M00:01:14 [ background music ] That's pretty good for an FM transmitter! These things usually sound like hell, you wouldn't want to turn it up that loud with most products. Okay, that's called the Rocker T505, a combination Bluetooth, FM, but taking it to I think a new level for hands-free and music streaming, without the wires. Clip it and go. Price would be about a hundred and forty bucks on this guy when it arrives, Q one 2008.
