Asono Freebit H1 Bluetooth headset

Mobile phones

The pulse races ever so slightly when I see a new product from Norwegian firm Asono – previous efforts, such as the DAB1, have an interesting design not often seen in the mainstream. Alas, the Asono Freebit H1 Bluetooth headset seems to lack any such quirkiness.

The stand-out feature is the ergonomic design, which allows the Freebit H1 to fit comfortably within the ear muscle without clamping the ear or blocking the passage between the ear canal and your surroundings. This, according to Asono, means comfort and improved sound. It’s also got a number of patent-protected improvements for functionality, but it’s not clear what these actually are – what is clear is that it offers 9 hours use between charges, 200 hours standby time and a working range of 33ft.

The Asono Freebit-H1 will be available before Christmas, priced at around £56.
