Joby Zivio Boom
by Mark R
It is amazing the swag that you can get at CES 2009. Who would have thought that I would walk into CES unveiled with nothing but a free press bag, and walk out with a new Bluetooth headset?
All of this is thanks to Joby, the company who gave us the Gorillapod Go-Go Collection. They allowed me to review the Zivio Boom, which is one of the most unique headsets that I have seen. The Zivio Boom has a microphone that can extend outward like a radio antenna for better sound quality on the speaker’s end.
Beyond that, the features of the Zivio Boom are pretty standard. For example, all buttons are conveniently located on the side, and it has 10 hours of talk time and 200 hours of standby time. It’s wireless range is about 10 meters or 33 feet.
The Zivio boom not only gives the user better sound, but it has a look that doesn’t follow the normal Bluetooth headset wearing crowd. After all, we are living in an age where Bluetooth headsets are a dime a dozen, and I’m sure you know at least one person who wears their headset 24/7.
The Joby Zivio Boom can be purchased at the My Zivio site for $129.95 in two colors: Mission Black and Marina Blue. If you want more information, click here.
