Unlike the Star Trek shaped Bluetooth headsets of yore, which either gave you away as a tech junkie or someone who likes flashing LEDs near their ear, the design of the Clipper is rather unique, subtle even.

Aimed at trying to get you to wear this fashionable accessory on clothing below the collar or clipped to a strap on a backpack, it features a rubberised clip design with a strong steel inlay that can fit around 4mm of material. The clip has a microphone, volume controls and a multi-function button. This in turn attaches to a set of headphones that boast stereo sound with noise cancellation. The length of the headphone wire is proof that the Clipper was meant to be worn close to the collar and not tucked into a belt buckle - we tried and the microphone made our conversation inaudible.

Perhaps a real deal sealer is that this gadget can connect to two devices at the same time. Phone, laptop, iPod, anything Bluetooth equipped. It doesn't support connectivity to two mobile phones at the same time however.

Charging takes an hour and a half, whilst usability with continuous music and calls drain it within six hours. Eight days of claimed standby along with its innovative design position the Clipper as a Bluetooth device carving new ground in an market of clones.

Verdict: Fresh styling and functional features make the Clipper stand out in a crowd of plane-jane Bluetooth headsets.
