Once paired with a mobile phone, the unit also allows users to search through their contacts and channel voice calls through its high-quality 20W speakers. The 1.8-inch color TFT screen displays track and album details when playing music and phonebook information when making or taking a call. When in music mode, the track details are grouped by source, artist, album and title. Users can select their source, see the track information and enjoy their music. The Parrot DS3120 has its own battery power source when required, allowing for up to 10 hours playback, and weighs in at only 1.5kg / 3.3 lbs making it highly portable.

Voice calls are high-quality thanks to Parrot’s heritage in making high-end in-car communications technology. A microphone built into the unit picks up the user’s voice from wherever they are in room and effectively cancels out all background noise. When receiving incoming calls with caller ID, music is automatically muted and any phonebook images stored on the user’s mobile phone are displayed on the bright screen. The Parrot DS3120 will be available in Europe and the U.S. in the second quarter of 2008 with a suggested MSRP of $249.99.
