    Why the sudden surge in Bluetooth headsets? Probably because America'slargest cellphone trade show is going on in Las Vegas. CTIA has alreadydelivered a snazzy new piece from BlueAnt, and Samsung Mobile isfollowing that up with the introduction of the Modus. Also known as theHM3500, this “convertible-style” headset boasts dual microphone andnoise cancelling technology that converts to a Stereo Bluetooth headsetfor an enhanced mobile experience.

    It's still not discrete enough for our liking, but if you don't careabout looks, the features here are actually pretty nice. Backgroundnoise is all but an afterthought, and it even offers multipointtechnology that allows seamless connectivity between twoBluetooth-enabled audio-streaming devices, including mobile phones,computers and MP3 players. If you happen to be listening wirelessly tomusic when a call comes in, the headset will automatically lower thevolume while alerting you to the incoming call; once you're donetalking, the music will resume.

    Another nifty feature is the ability to be worn as-is, or it can beconverted into a Bluetooth stereo headset when connected to theincluded stereo ear bud headset. Since battery life on these is alwaysa make-it-or-break-it point, this one has 6 hours of talk time or 200hours on standby; plenty for all but the heaviest of users. It willcharge via micro-USB, and it will probably be out soon. We say”probably” because the company has yet to make the release date andprice official public knowledge.
