Thanks to Globalsat, today I received my latest Bluetooth stereo headset combo, the Globalsat Bluetooth Entertainment Pack which combines Globelsat's BTA-830 audio gateway and the BTH-820 Bluetooth headset.
The Bluetooth Entertainment Pack consists a sender/receiver that connects to any audio source, for instance your iPod and a Bluetooth headset. The headset is simple plug-and-go device which supports the standard Bluetooth A2DP for clear stereo sound streaming and the Bluetooth AVRCP profile for remote control as well as the standard Bluetooth headset profile to use it as a headset for mobile phones.
Using the latest Bluetooth technologies the Audio Gateway transmits crystal clear digital sound to compatible Bluetooth audio headsets up to 10m away.

In the box, from left top to right bottom: USB to dual-mini USB cable for charging (the Bluetooth headset and gateway), 110 - 240 V USB charger, Bluetooth headset main unit including microphone, remote control and 3.5 stereo plug, stereo headset to be plugged into the main unit, Bluetooth audio gateway.

Thanks to the used A2DP and AVRCP Bluetooth profiles, it should works with any compatible Bluetooth stereo equipment (like Windows Mobile 5.0 devices with AKU 2 which means you don't have to use the audio gateway at all but also with Bluetooth equipments from other manufactures like the Motorola Home Entertainment Solution HT820/DC800).

I will give it a test over the next days including an outdoor test next weekend when I'm out for snowboarding; please stay tuned for my review!
But at least, it doesn't looks as geeky as the Motorola Bluetooth headset looks like. ;-)
