|Lubix UBHS-NC1 Stereo Bluetooth Headset
Lubix may not be a brand name you are familiar with, but they have jumped into a hot market with a product that just might get them noticed. Bluetooth headsets are everywhere thanks to the expanding capabilities of mobile phones, the convenience they offer, and of course the tougher laws regarding mobile phone use while driving. Most headsets can handle phone calls just fine, but they fail to address the stereo audio playback features found on many modern phones. Lubix offers an innovative line of Bluetooth headsets capable of handling your communication needs, while also letting you enjoy the multimedia capabilities of your phone.
