Looking for another reason to wear a Bluetooth headset all the time? Then you might want to consider admitting you have a problem, or you might want to get Motorola’s new H17txt model, which can be paired with the company’s new MotoSpeak text-to-speech application to read text messages aloud as they come in. That software is available for Android and BlackBerry initially, and will apparently even translate 150 different commonly used acronyms so things like l8r don’t get read as l, eight, r. As for the headset itself, it’s a fairly standard affair, with it boasting CrystalTalk noise-canceling technology, five hours of talk time and seven hours standby, and Bluetooth 2.1 compatibility. Still no indication of a price, but it should be available through Verizon starting today.

We got a glimpse at Spracht’s new Aura EQ Bluetooth headset back at CES this year, but in reality, we sort of didn’t — what was being shown back then didn’t constitute final ID, turns out. The company’s back at it here at CTIA showing something closer to what you’ll be seeing on store shelves later this half — though they only had one, and it wasn’t in final retail packaging — so we took a minute to check it out. It’s using the same tricky earbud that we saw before, but the front of the unit has changed significantly — gone are the matte ridges, replaced with a glossy black surface broken up by a few bumps that represent the range of the capacitive volume slider. If “understated” is the look you’re going for, the Aura EQ is generally going to do the trick — and even if you like something a little more edgy, it’s got those funky points on the front and rear. Quite the crowd pleaser, eh?

And you thought the Bluetooth headset was gone forever. Samsung Mobile’s keeping the dream alive here at CTIA by introducing the “convertible-style” Modus — a noise cancelling BT headset that’s able to convert for Bluetooth stereo connectivity on a whim. It’s also equipped with a pair of microphones and multipoint technology, the latter of which enables users to have the device synced to two handsets and respond to whichever rings first. Samsung’s also tossing a stereo earbud headset in the box for those times when monaural just ain’t cuttin’ it, and the built-in rechargeable battery (which gets juiced via micro-USB) can go for six hours strong before petering out. Shame there’s no mention of a price or ship date, but it’s probably for the best — remember that pact you made with your SO to keep your ear free of foreign objects?

Well, it just wouldn’t be MWC without a few Bluetooth headsets to go along with the new phones now, would it? Thankfully, Jabra has come through with its new Clipper headset which, like Jabra’s BT3030
, packs a standard 3.5mm jack to let you pair it with your own headphones (although Jabra also supplies a pair of its own noise-canceling buds). Otherwise, you’ll get some full, discreetly hidden controls on the clip itself, and a promised six hours of talk time and eight days of standby. No official word of a North America release just yet, but this one is expected to run
