If you’ve ever lamented the shoddy internal speakerphone in your mobile phone, Logitech might have the ultimate solution. It’s a device called Pure-Fi Mobile, and the company claims it will “transform your low-fidelity mobile-phone audio into high-fidelity, stereophonic sound.” The best part: it’s Bluetooth, so you can leave your phone in your briefcase, and let this thing jam out for up to 12 hours on its rechargeable batteries. It also functions as a high-fidelity speakerphone, sporting two microphones – one for voice pickup, and one for ambient noise-cancellation – and can be plugged in via an AC adaptor or mini-USB plug for those endless conference calls. Call-answer and call-end buttons are placed at the top of the device for phone-free operation.
As a music device, the Pure-Fi Mobile has some impressive specs: it can stream music from up to 33 feet away from your mobile phone, and uses 2-inch high-excursion drivers and dual 2-inch pressure drivers to create palpable lows and tinselly highs. The device also features a standard 3.5mm headphone jack for connectivity with non-Bluetooth devices like iPods. Pure-Fi Mobile will be available in the US in June at an MSRP of $150.00.
