New BlackBerry Bluetooth Headset Coming Soon

hs-500-blackberry-headset RIM has really been working on their accessory line with recent devices. Scott let me know about the latest accessory RIM has put on which is the BlackBerry HS-500 Bluetooth Headset. The headset looks pretty standard but adds in features like automatic volume control. I am not sure how this will compare with a Jawbone or Blueant but I will let you know when I give it a spin!


  • Call control button – control calling features like, answer, end, mute and voice activated dialing with the press of a button
  • Automatic volume control and noise cancelation – hear and be heard loud and clear in noisy environments
  • Works with selected third-party GPS mapping applications – listen to turn-by-turn directions

The price is pretty hefty at $79.99 retail but it is still listed as coming soon on their product page. Anybody thinking of picking one up when it comes out?

  1. Ugh, who cares about a bluetooth headset that has the BB icon on it?! How about RIM focus on upgrading it’s browser & OS instead? Not to mention it’s ugly. C’mon RIM. WAKE UP!

  2. Ugh. I’d LOVE a bluetooth headset. But they all enter the ear canal and guess what? I already have a hearing aid in there! I wish someone would make one that used something like a single headphone earpiece. Yeah, it would be bulky. But at least I could use it.
