S-E Stylized BT Headset

Sony-Ericsson at CES marked the introduction of the PV705 Style Edition Bluetooth headset. Hoping to avoid the overly technical appearance of most earpieces, the cellphone designer has added three removable faceplates in black, purple, and white as well as jewelry that fastens to the necklace strap or carrying pouch. This helps the communicator blend in during social gatherings, especially when worn around the neck for speakerphone use, the company says. Talk time is a long 12 hours, or 300 hours when on standby. The Style Edition will be ready this month with prices to be set shortly.

In tandem with the new Bluetooth headset, the cellphone partnership released the MBR-100 Bluetooth music receiver, a simple attachment that can stream the music from a cellphone or other Bluetooth audio device to any set of speakers with either aux-in or RCA input jacks. As with the PV705, the MBR-100 can play audio for up to 12 hours and will idle safely for 300 hours. It will ship alongside the headset, with a similarly undetermined price.
