Skinny Bluetooth headsets that conduct sound through your jawbone are sad, admit it. For some proper office credibility get yourself a retro Bluetooth headset.

Brando's retro Bluetooth headset - cool?

Available in two styles – ye olde telephone receiver of yesteryear or... er... a banana – online retailer Brando’s retro Bluetooth headset boasts a standby time of up to 160 hours and talk time of six hours.

While unpeeling is optional, both designs can be recharged through a USB connection and feature buttons for volume adjustment.

Recharge over USB

Both the receiver and banana also have an integrated blue power-on LED – now there’s a sentence we never thought we would write.
