New wireless headphones

Audition Products is planning to unveil a headphone kit based on "Liberty Link" technology developed by Aura Communication for iPod nano users. The headset is expected to cost less than similar Bluetooth wireless technology, using magnetic induction to establish a digital radio link between the iPod nano base transmitter and the headphone, according to AppleInsider. Similar to RFID (Radio Frequency ID), the technology is capable of creating a communications bubble with a range of 4-5 feet that entirely surrounds the user. The limited transition range may result in longer battery life and lower accessory costs, and like Bluetooth, privacy is maintained via an automatically generated code with each headphone and base. The headphone kit is expected to cost $80-100, and will offer roughly 10 hours of uninterrupted playback, according to the report.
