Life is full of distractions. For a driver on the road, one of those distractions is using a hand-held cell phone. As of press time, six states and the District of Columbia have laws that prohibit all drivers from using a hand-held phone.
It’s not always possible to keep from making or taking a call while driving your motorcoach. To do so safely, efficiently — and legally — manufacturers have introduced a range of products, from visor speakerphones to cell phone car mounts. One solution by Cobra Electronics is the Cobra Bluetooth Over the Head Headset CBTH1.
The Cobra headset uses “noise cancellation technology,” which enables users to be heard clearly while in extremely noisy environments, according to the company.
The CBTH1, which can be worn on either ear, easily pairs to Bluetooth-enabled phones. The headset with an extra soft ear rest is adjustable. At the touch of one button on the headset, calls can be answered and ended.
The flexible microphone boom can be positioned close to the mouth so that it picks up the user’s voice but not all the background noise.
The Cobra headset comes with three charging accessories: a home charger, a vehicle charger and a USB charging cable. The CBTH1 is capable of eight hours of talk time or 250 hours of standby time on a single charge.
The Cobra Bluetooth headset has a retail price starting at $99.95.
