   Because of the large amount of PC hardware and peripherals to make it at our lab these past months we "neglected" some of our other categories so we will do our best to get those up to date as well before the summer is over. One such category is the wireless headsets and although the market is filled with low-cost models aimed towards the majority of consumers there are some well-respected and established companies which follow a different path all together and seek to satisfy even the more demanding users with their products. There are however some new players in the market like MIPOW who are looking to win consumers with their high quality and innovative products and so today we're going to take a look at their VoxTube 500 Bluetooth Headset.


   MIPOW, (pronounced as MY-POW, the letters “MI” stands for “myself”, and “POW” represents “vitality & power”) was founded in 2010 in Hong Kong by Mr. Yeung, Wei Yung, Stanley, as a young, innovative brand with the key value of “Make it Different”. MIPOW is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Baojia Investment Group which has major business interests in property development, new energy, electronics and venture capital. MIPOW has offices in the United Kingdom, United States and Hong Kong with sales channels covering Asia, Europe, America, Australia, Africa and the Middle East. Our functional and fashionable designs have won broad market acceptance as well as many prestigious awards including: European Red-Dot Design Awards, International Forum iF Design Awards, GOOD DESIGN Awards and Macworld Asia The Best Awards. MIPOW takes pride in its innovation and holds 48 patents with more to come. These and many other accomplishments have positioned MIPOW amongst the leaders in product excellence.


   MIPOW has given the VoxTube 500 Bluetooth headset a small (just 6g heavy) tubular-design anodized aluminum body (award winning iF design) and packed it with Bluetooth v4.0 connectivity (HFP1.6, A2DP1.2 and AVRCP1.4 support), dual noise-cancelling microphones (featuring cVc audio enhancement by CSR) and a 70mAh lithium-polymer rechargeable battery which can power the headset for up to 6 hours (8/10 days in standby). Also as with most modern Bluetooth headsets the VoxTube 500 allows for simultaneous connection with up to 2 different compatible devices and offers both voice feedback (status prompts) and dialing.
