>> I'm Nicole Lee, the assistant editor at CNET.com and this is the Sound ID, Sound Flavors Bluetooth headset. This is one of the first headsets, it's not the first headset to have medical technology behind it. Because it uses advanced noise compression and its especially good for those that are hard of hearing or those that need specialty hearing aids for listening. The front here you can see is a very nice big multifunction button, on the side here are very two rubberized and raised above the surface volume rocker which we like a lot. And there's a protruding boom mike right here. On the back is the ear bud. As you can see it's the kind ear bud that sort of sticks really deep in the ear for maximum security as well as for good hearing. There's also an ear loop here, which you can use for additional security in the ear. Comes with a variety of ear loops actually, so that you can fit any size ear. There's also a walkie talkie mode. So if you have two of these headsets, you can sort of pair them together and use them as walkie talkie headsets, which is pretty cool. There's also an option companion link microphone, which you can use as a hearing aid of sorts. You can put the microphone near a TV, you can wear this headset so you can hear the TV better. Because of the configuration of the boom mike and the ear bud, this headset can only be used on the right ear. So if you don't use your right ear for using Bluetooth headsets, you're out of luck. The only drawback that we can think of is that it's a pretty high priced value, it's almost 650 dollars for a Bluetooth headset, which is pretty ridiculous. But if you're hard of hearing, this may be a pretty good headset for you. My name is Nicole Lee and this is the Sound ID Sounds Flavors Bluetooth headset.
