JBL 610 iPod Headphones

JBL is planning its own set of Bluetooth headphones for iPods, an FCC approval filing revealed today. The test results show the JBL 610, a set of over-the-ear headphones designed with the same style as the company's Creature desktop speakers. The set is designed with the iPod in mind and includes a transmitter that will attach to the Dock Connector on fourth-generation and newer iPods. While the 610s are expected to share features with other Bluetooth headphones, like music controls built into one of the earpieces and 8-10 hours of playback time, JBL adds that the headphones are made for travelers and will be bundled with a dual-format airline power adapter and a port for traditional line-in audio when the batteries expire. Availability hasn't been set but is likely by early next year. Click through for a gallery of additional photos.
