Palawan BH-217 / Bluetooth headset

Palawan BH-217

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The simplicity of the product reflects the ease of its use, highlighting the only key you need to interact with the product: the call button. This minimalistic key is peeled down to only the icon, the only moving part of the product and raised for an excellent tactile feel. Overall, the design is made of soft controlled surfaces. The softly rounded sides enhance the thinness of the product. The extruded shape gives the headset a sense of direction: the top part of the headset is rounded, creating a perfect shape to comfortably stay in your ear, while the bottom end is cut straight off, revealing the microphone and charging interface.
