Gear Circle / Bluetooth headset

Gear Circle

Discipline: Product

This is a necklace-style wearable device with an innovative magnetic clasp for those who are pursuing a stylish freedom. The Gear Circle proposes a lifestyle that can be realized through intuitive usability, which allows users to receive calls and control playing music with one touch on the ear part of the device. And the device suggests a seamless smart experience that seeks smart freedom with voice command. Thanks to formative, minimal factors, this product can be used in various environments. It gives a premium comfort look by way of mix match of metal (around ears) and rubber (cable part).

Thanks to a magnetic clasp element, two headphones are turned into a piece of jewelry that can be worn like a necklace. This exciting but at the same time minimalistic reinterpretation of a Bluetooth headset is convincing as it allows the user maximum freedom whilst using the most advanced technology that enables intuitive and convenient handling.
