foneGEAR announced during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2004 the availability of the first universal wireless headset based on magnetic communications technology. The foneGEAR CORD FREE headset uses an enhanced form of 'near field' magnetic communications rather than a conventional radio frequency approach. This unique technology makes CORD FREE the lowest-power, most affordable noise-suppressing wireless headset on the market today. Ideal for mobile executives, heavy phone users or for online applications, the foneGEAR CORD FREE headset is a portable solution that is lightweight, cost-effective and innovative. This also replace other wireless technologies like Bluetooth.
Designed to rid consumers of yet another AC wall charger, the foneGEAR CORD FREE headset uses a single AA alkaline battery to achieve up to 25 hours of use and 3 months of standby power. The foneGEAR headset dispenses with an 'on-off' button, so users never need to remember to turn it off. Simply dock the headset in the base that attaches to your phone through a universal 2.5 mm headset jack to make it ready to use.
The product is compatible with existing mobile and cordless phones (wirelessly-enabled via Bluetooth or not), PDAs and PCs. foneGEAR's CORD FREE creates a secure communication bubble that surrounds and is uniquely owned by each user for reliable and private communications. Using a low-frequency approach to wireless communications at 13.5 MHz (an 'uncluttered' portion of the frequency spectrum) enables a clear and interference-free user experience. This contrasts sharply with the very 'crowded' ultra-high frequency 2.4 GHz band, which is used by Bluetooth, WiFi and portable phones.
