Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2: The Bose
Bluetooth headset Series 2 meets the demands
of on-the-go communications, from crowded terminals to noisy traffic. It's
engineered to react automatically as noise levels change, allowing you to hear
your end of the call better. Plus, an exclusive noise-rejecting microphone
system helps your caller better hear you above both noise and wind. The Bose
Bluetooth headset is compact, light and
well-balanced, and now you can choose between right- or left-ear versions.
Bluetooth 2.1 Compatibility: The Bose
Series 2 is compatible with
Bluetooth devices using
Bluetooth 2.1 (or earlier) specifications that support the
Bluetooth hands-free (HFP), headset (HSP), or audio streaming (A2DP) profiles.
Pairing: You must initially pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone with the
Bose Bluetooth headset. The headset features a Bluetooth indicator to display

Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology,
some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or
may not support all features when used with the Bose Bluetooth headset.
Multipoint Design: Multipoint allows the Bose
Bluetooth headset Series 2 to maintain a connection to two devices at the
same time. If you have separate mobile phones for work and personal use, you can
use the same headset with either phone. No matter which phone rings, the call
will come through the headset. When powered on, the headset will automatically
try to connect to the last two phones with which it was used.
Voice Command Support: Many Bluetooth enabled smartphones can be
operated using voice commands. You can initiate those commands on the Bose
Series 2 by pressing the call button.
Exclusive Bose Advanced Technology: With technologies that accentuate
voices over noise, the Bose
Bluetooth headset allows for more natural-sounding conversations with fewer
interruptions at both ends of the line.
- Adaptive Audio Adjustment Technology: Adaptive audio
automatically senses noise around you and adjusts the headset volume
accordingly. In a loud environment, the volume increases so you can hear
your call. When things quiet down, the volume decreases. Either way, the
listening level remains constant.
- TriPort Acoustic Structure: Bose TriPort acoustic
structure ensures a natural voice quality, whatever the volume level.
- Noise-Rejecting Microphone System: The Bose
features an improved noise-rejecting microphone system that differentiates
between your voice and background noise; even in windy environments. It
transmits more of you (and less noise) to the listener.
Side-Specific Design: The side-specific design of the Bose
Series 2 allows you to get the fit that's right for you. The curved design fits
facial features, and the button placement on top and bottom allows the use of a
natural pinching motion that won't dislodge the headset from your ear. And the
soft StayHear silicone tip keeps the headset comfortably and securely in place.
It distributes contact over a greater area inside the ear, avoiding known
pressure points. The headset stays in your ear without being too tight; and
without an ear hook.
Note: The Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2 comes with three sizes
of StayHear silicone tips (S/M/L).
Simple Control: The Bose
Bluetooth headset has
separate buttons for power, volume, and call send/end; all conveniently located
on the top and bottom edges of the headset. Each action, from taking and ending
calls to inserting or removing the headset, can be accomplished easily with one
hand; important while you're driving or on the go.
- Power Slider Switch: The power
slider switch lets you easily turn headset power on (green) or off
(red) one-handed, with a quick slide of the switch.
- Answer/End Call Button: The
answer/end call button makes it easy to answer and end calls with a
simple press that won't dislodge the headset. Press this button twice to
redial the last number. This button also enables
pairing with your
- Volume Up/Down: Use volume up/down buttons to raise or lower the
volume of a call.
A2DP Audio Streaming: When you're not on a call, you can enjoy mobile
media content through A2DP. The
Bluetooth profile for
streaming audio content lets you listen to turn-by-turn directions; plus stored
music, podcasts and other media on your smartphone.
Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery: The Bose Bluetooth headset's
integrated rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides 4.5 hours of talk time and 100 hours of standby time per charge. The
headset's battery indicator shows battery status from green to amber to red. A supplied Wall
USB cable provides two options for charging the headset battery. Simply connect
the Bluetooth headset to your computer's USB port or an AC wall outlet to charge
the device. Allow up to 3 hours for a full charge.
