Motorola Japan have announced two new Bluetooth speakerphones and wireless speakers. The Motorola EQ7, left, and the Motorola EQ5, right, were designed in collaboration with JBL, and each support the A2DP stereo Bluetooth profile and the AVRCP wireless control profile, and run on battery power for total flexibility.
The EQ7 takes two AA batteries and boasts up to 6hrs talktime or music playback. It uses Class 1 Bluetooth for up to 100m range (with compatible phones, PMPs or Bluetooth dongles) and will automatically switch between music and incoming calls, resuming playback when you hang up.
As for the EQ5, it has a Li-Ion battery good for up to 8hrs talktime or music playback. Maximum range is 10m and it has the same music/calls intelligent switching; Motorola have also given it SRS WOW HD audio processing. Both devices have a 3.5mm input socket for plugging in a non-Bluetooth PMP.
The Motorola EQ7 is priced at €160 ($207) while the Motorola EQ5 comes in at €100 ($129).
