More info on this Bluetooth headset kit after the jump.
iPhone Bluetooth Headset
The compact iPhone Bluetooth headset’s innovative design “is sure to turn a few heads,” says Apple, for those who want to feel fashionable.
The coolest thing about it is its one button that lets you send and receive phone calls. Apple claims the battery allows for 5.5 hours of talk time, or 72 hours in standby.

iPhone Dual Dock
The included iPhone dual dock holds and charges your iPhone and Bluetooth headset. The dual dock can be plugged in to either a computer or an electrical outlet.
You can use the dock to connect speakers with “an AV cable or a stereo audio cable to play music from your iPhone” and also as an audio port to a louder speaker for better-quality calls on speakerphone.
The Bluetooth dual dock has the same exact functionality as the dock that comes included in the iPhone box, except that it has a spot for the iPhone Bluetooth headset.
iPhone Bluetooth Travel Charger
The travel cable in the iPhone Bluetooth headset kit syncs and charges your iPhone or iPod and charges the headset.
The Bluetooth travel cable may be more convenient than the dual dock, because it’s much smaller and more portable.
Finally, the big question: Can we listen to music on the iPhone Bluetooth headset? Unfortunately, no. Maybe in a future upgrade.
