Bluetribe headphones intro

Japan's Sigma-Apo announced on Friday it will soon release the Bluetribe headphones, which are able to connect to compatible Bluetooth phones and digital music players. A built-in microphone and two-way connection in the Bluetooth 2.1-profile headphones allows user to have conversations when used with compatible handsets. The headphone is SCMS-T compatible, allowing it to receive 1Seg broadcasts.

The 30mm diameter (about 1.2 inches) drivers can deliver a 95dB signal-to-noise ratio, though Sigmo-apo does not list the benefits of the interchangeable earpads, with a traditional rectangle shape or the diamond shape. Controls on the right headphone include power, play, pause, stop, and track up or down as well as volume adjustment buttons. Battery life is rated at 11 hours when listening to music or making phone calls, while maximum range is rated at about 33 feet. A version with a docking iPhone/iPod adapter is also being offered.

There is no indication of a release date nor pricing information for the Bluetribe headphones. [via Akihabara]
