Jabra launches BT530 headset

The BT530 gets multi-use capabilities that means the headset can connect to a mobile phone and PC at the same time, auto pair for easy set-up and comes complete with six eargels and a removable hook.

Talk time comes in at 5.5 hours, standby is 250 hours, there's the usual 10 metre range, the device weighs 10 grams and charges via Micro-USB.

The new headset will be available from 1 October from Phones4U and Carphone Warehouse stores priced at approximately £49.99.
