Adesso Xtream H5U USB Multimedia Headset

The Consumer Technology Program took place last month, where we hosted live, one-on-one virtual meetings between technology suppliers and buyers who were looking to discover new and innovative products. Product categories reviewed included Tech Accessories, Tech Hardware, Mobile & Audio, Home Automation & Security, Gaming & Drones, and Fitness & Wearables. During the session, participating buyers were able to visit the Buyers Choice Awards section of the ECRM Connect platform and cast a digital vote on their favorite product based on innovation and product packaging. We are pleased to announce the winners: 

First Place: Adesso – Xtream H5U USB Multimedia Headset

Founded in 1994, Adesso is a designer and manufacturer of computer peripherals and mobile accessories including input devices, headphones, headsets, speakers, webcams, docking stations, wireless chargers, and many additional products diversified over 26 distinct categories, with more than 250 products available. Adesso is driven by looking towards tomorrow’s technology and creating solutions with cutting-edge designs, high quality components, and affordable solutions. It values customer service as the most important aspect of its business.
The Xtream H5U USB Multimedia Headset was designed to be comfortable, provide quality sound, and be Plug-n-Play with a USB connector. Adesso had received requests for a USB headset solution for “Work from Home” or “School from Home”, amidst a major shortage in the USB Headset market during the early stages of the 2020 pandemic. The company responded with an award-winning designed USB headset with protein leather ear cushions to simulate the natural feel of leather on skin. The addition of an internal sound card and USB connector, allows it to be plugged it into an available USB port. The omnidirectional microphone can be positioned in a myriad of angles, for comfort at work or at play. The Xtream is one of Adesso’s best-selling headsets to date and they are in stock and shipping now. 

Second Place: SMD Technologies – Volkano Hold Series Magnetic Flexible Phone Holder

SMD Technologies is a manufacturer and distributor of thousands of products in multiple categories. Its philosophy of sourcing high-quality genuine products, internal quality control, and design teams along with its own distribution has allowed it to build a reputation amongst retailers for being able to provide cutting-edge, value-for-money products. In support of its growth, SMD Technologies was acquired by the Carlyle Group in 2019, positioning it as a top tier solution-oriented company, focusing on innovation.

The Volkano Hold series was designed for comfort and security. A flexible holder for use with both dashboard or windshield with easy installation, it fits every car’s internal design and has 360° rotation capability. The Hold Series is made from high quality materials, including ABS Plastic, Silicone, Metal, and 6 x N56 Magnets. The six N56 strength magnets hold all phone models firmly without fear of the phone coming loose, even over tough terrain. The rugged flexible arm allows a wide range of positioning options to fit all vehicles comfortably, and the included accessory kit ensures a firm grip with or without a cover fitted to the phone.
