We all have heard the news that using a cell phone increases our exposure to radiation. Whether or not the exposure is enough to be harmful is a highly debated topic. Why take the risk when you can use a Yubz Retro handset? Not only is the Yubz retro handset super cool it reduces 96% of the radiation exposure!
When I came across these old school handsets on Pinterest, I knew I had to have one. I had no idea they reduced radiation, I just thought they were cool. I instantly had visions of my high school days spent lounging around with my big ‘ole phone resting on my shoulder as I painted my nails or doodled on my homework. I never realized that I missed the comfort of those phones until that moment. Lucky for me, Yubz was kind enough to send me a retro headset for my iPhone. As soon as it arrived, I immediately plugged the retro style bright purple cord into my headphone jack and called my sister. I excitedly shared my news about the retro headset with her and asked her what she thought on her end. She said it sounded great! The connection was clear on my end too and the way the phone rested so comfortably on my shoulder was just like I remembered.
Yubz is a unique handset that comes in several models which can connect directly to mobile phones, or via Bluetooth paring with mobile phones, and USB ports for laptops (for internet based communication). It was designed in 2000 with comfort, health and of course a little fun in mind! The traditional retro handsets come in a rainbow of colors and come with a 2.5 or 3.5 mm headphone jack making it compatible with most smart phone models and retail for $39.95. For those of you who prefer something a little more funky check out the Yubz Artist line. These retro handsets feature designs by famous modern artists. Or for those occasions when you want something a little more fancy why not go with the Classic Rock Gold handset?
