At first glance, Samsung’s Gear Circle Bluetooth headset doesn’t look like anything you’d be wrapping around your head. The spaceship looking headset lets you receive calls, listen to tunes and shout voice commands using Samsung’s S Voice software if your device supports it. The lightweight headset touts a 9 hour battery life and comes in black and blue colors, and can be picked up now at select T-Mobile stores. The Gear Circle will be available for purchase later this month from AT&T, Samsung and Amazon, with a white colored variant showing up exclusively at Best Buy later this month as well. Pricing has not yet been revealed.
The Gear Circle touts magnetic clasps close to the earbuds which lets you snap the headset together when not in use. The small plastic housing on the back of the headset not only ties the whole thing together but features a small motor that will vibrate gently when a call is incoming.
