Nokia intros four headsets

Nokia on Thursday introduced a range of headphones, including the wire-free Bluetooth BH-504 set alongside the wired WH-500, WH-202 and WH-800 sets. The BH-504 set doubles as a headset and features echo cancellation and noise reduction technology built in for clearer conversations. The headphones sport dedicated music controls including a volume adjustment. The folding headphones are battery-powered and rated at 7.5 hours of playback time, 9 hours of talk time and can stand by for 90 hours.

Nokia's other newly-released headphones, although wired, are also capable of handling calls thanks to built-in microphones. The over-the-ear design of the WH-500, the WH-800 have an in-ear design and the WH-202s are the most compact, as they're earbuds. The WH-500 is similar to the BH-504 set, also sporting music controls although they are located on the wire that ends in a 3.5mm audio jack. A 2.5mm adapter is included to make the headphones compatible with Nokia handsets.

The WH-202 headphones lack any type of music controls but plug right into cellphones thanks to their 2.5mm audio jack. The WH-800 earbuds have adjustable ear hooks and a volume adjustment, and include a carrying case along with a 3.5mm jack and 2.5mm adapter.

No pricing or specific launch information has been announced by Nokia.
