It won’t be announced until tomorrow but the Tritton folks have given us an advance look at their new cool headset that is coming. If you have been looking for a Bluetooth headset that works with both your cell phone and your Mac or PC for audio playback there are several choices but none that are small and light and as functional as the new AX BlueStream Stereo Headset by Tritton. These guys take the best earbud design and use a unique lapel clip to house the Bluetooth radio for working with the mobile device. This keeps the entire headset very tiny, comfortable and functional as you can see in this photo:
The BlueStream will retail for $80 wherever Tritton products are sold. This looks like a sweet setup and one that won’t attract too much unwanted attention. It weighs less than an ounce and the lapel clip puts all the cell phone controls in a convenient place within easy reach. Full press release after the jump.
