Catering to audio addicts that love to listen to music, those who use VoIP on a daily basis, and even those who love to chat during games, the Travelite HS-1000W delivers unlimited portability, ease of use and crystal-clear sounds without the inconvenience and clutter of conventional wired headsets.

The Travelite HS-1000W is perfect for on-the-go movers and shakers. Its unique lightweight and foldable design – unlike traditional heavy and bulky headsets that consume precious space – allows it to be easily stored into the elegant carrying case to fit tote bags, notebook bags and even handbags.

Through a simple plug-n-play USB dongle, users are free from being ‘tied down’ to the PC by delivering wire-free omni-directional usage up to 15-20 metres – double the distance of general headphones. The Travelite HS-1000W comes equipped with a Li-Polymer rechargeable battery, providing users with long operating times – non-stop for up to eight hours! Users can even continue to use the headset while it is charging through a universal mini USB.

Being fully plug-n-play, users are not required to install any further drivers to be in their PCs – eliminating annoying and troublesome clicking and driver searching. Users only require a single button-push to enable them to listen, chat and game. Additionally, two unique functions – Press-n-Pick and Press-n-Link allows users to pick up or hang up Skype phone conversations and link the Travelite HS-1000W to their PCs with just a single button-push.

Equipped with a high 20Hz-20 KHz frequency response, the Travelite HS-1000W is able to deliver crystal-clear audio and powerful bass, as well as the capability to adjust sound performance for each scenario such as music, VoIP conversations, video and games. Together with < 0.08% distortion users can be sure that they will only hear the most professional audio – free of any distortions.
