I have no doubt that the BlueAnt Q3 Bluetooth (BT) headset is a good piece of technology, but like other BT headsets before it, performing well when paired with an iOS device is what’s really important, at least on this site.

After all, here at Cult De Mac, Apple-specific compatibility is everything—we’re not just testing tech for the masses—we want to know how well accessories work with our Apple technology, and unfortunately, when it comes to the Q3, that’s where things start to fall apart.
So the Consumer Electronics Show is over for another year, and for those who’ve been in Las Vegas covering it for us, it’s back to normality. While we allow the Cult of Mac team to sober up, it’s time to look back at the best gizmos CES had to offer. There were thousands of products on show — far too many to cover in one week — but there were a handful that really stood out.
We’ve put together a list of awesome things that we were blown away by, including smartphones, accessories, gadgets, and more. Check it out and tell us what you’re most looking forward to getting your hands on in 2013.
BlueAnt Wireless is showing off a tiny little device at CES this year called the Ribbon, which they claim can turn almost any speaker into a Bluetooth streaming device. BlueAnt describes three ideal use cases for the device, each providing different functionality.
First of all, the device can be used to clip onto your clothing in order to stream audio from your iPhone. The Ribbon comes with headphones which connect to a standard headphone jack on the device. The controls onboard the Ribbon give you access to media controls as well as Siri.
