I am STILL catching up and posting about wonderful things that I learned about at CES 2 months later. There was just so much! I mentioned before that I had dinner with the awesome ladies of ChicaLogic. It was an awesome dinner full of techy women! 2 of those women were the ladies of ChicBlvd. Yes, I can admit that I have a thing for company names with Chic in them! Chic, Tech, Geek… you get the point.

Anyway, they came bearing gifts for us all to check out from their line. After returning home and reading up on them I requested a review on another item, a very cool, cute, pink chicKiss Wireless Headset.

It’s a very simple design. Nice and small, and neat. The side is covered in either white or pink Swarovski Crystals. Oh yeah!!

Official Description:

The crystal clear sound, comfortable inner earbuds and light handling weigh make listening pleasure able even when those long customer service wait time seem unbearable. Cell phone talk time is up to 6 hours which should be more than enough time for late night chats with your girlfriend– and standby time lasts up to 200 hours. Not only are these babies chic, they are functional too. Treat your ears to somethin” SWEET with chicBuds wireless Headset!

Although the part that goes in the ear is just a very simple knob, it actually fits very well and stays in my ear. I tested it out by shaking my head around and it stayed put. This is a real plus. I usually have a problem with Bluetooth earpieces fitting correctly, especially those without ear loops. But this one fits very snugly. I was quite surprised.

Although the sound is not as clear as more expensive Bluetooth units, it is not all bad. It sounds a bit hollow and it’s not quite as loud as I would like. But, the calls are clear.

Pros

  • Great fit
  • Very stylish
  • Clear sound
  • Decent battery life

Cons

  • Hollow sound that could be louder
  • Nonstandard (not micro or Mini-USB) means that you must keep up with your charging cable

chicBuds has some other very cool stuff available like the chicboom cassette speaker that we received as party favors at CES. Remember cassette tapes? Oh come on, it was not THAT long ago! The chicBoom is a portable speaker for your mp3 player that looks like an old cassette tape. It’s cute, and fun and small enough to keep in your purse or pocket for when you need some sounds!
