CNET First Look
Sound ID 510 Bluetooth headsetCombined with the iPhone app, the Sound ID 510 is a truly excellent Bluetooth headset for iPhone owners.
>> I am Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a First Look at the Sound ID 510 Bluetooth headsets. As you can see here it is a very simple looking Bluetooth headset, very slim and stylish, all-black very minimalist appeal. On the front here is a multifunction button right here. Above it is a small little LED indicator. You don't get a physical volume rocker with the headset, but you do get a touch sensor volume control and you can adjust the volume by sliding your finger up and down the front of the headset. On the side here is the power toggle. On the back here is the earpiece with Sound ID's Real Comfort ear loop. The Sound ID 510 comes with an array of different ear loop sizes for a more customized fit. The ear loop can also be adjusted to fit either the left or right ear. One of the most interesting things about the Sound ID 510 is that it is the first Bluetooth headset with its own iPhone app. The iPhone app is called EarPrint and is available free for download from the iTunes Appstore. With the EarPrint iPhone app you can adjust a variety of things on your Sound ID 510 headset. You can adjust the Personal Sound level because you can adjust the incoming audio quality. You can also find out how loud the surrounding noise is. You can also adjust the noise reduction demo to just find out how much noise you are cancelling. There is also an Environmental sound mode that amplifies the sound around you when the headset is not in use. This is a very handy Find My Headset locator function in the app so that if you lose your headset somewhere in the house for example, you can just press this button and then your headset will continue beeping to let you know where the headset is. You can also find out the battery status of your headset with this app. The Sound ID 510 is around $130. I am Nicole Lee and this has been the first look at the Sound ID 510 Bluetooth headsets. ^M00:01:58 [ Music ]
