Creative wireless 'phones
Creative's new SE2300 headphones have an absolute minimum of cords and connections, even eliminating the headband. They communicate wirelessly with any Bluetooth 1.2 receiver, whether it be a PC, a PDA, or the bundled audio-jack adapter. The phones support A2DP stereo as well as AVRCP remote control, though one of the earpieces has a built-in volume knob, and a beeping sound identifies when they're low on power. The battery is a polymer-ion unit with an eight hour supply, which can be replenished with an AC adapter or a USB connection. The phones power down when no Bluetooth points are in range. Creative is selling the SE2300s for $130.
