Sony BT headphones

Sony Europe on Monday announced the upcoming release of two sets of Bluetooth 2.1 headphones with Sony's cVc echo and noise cancellation software, the DR-BT100CX in-ear earbuds and headband DR-BT101. Both can handle phone calls thanks to a built-in microphone and call answer controls as well. The earbuds use 9mm Neodymium drivers while the latter sport a 30mm speaker made of the same material. Integrated music controls include volume adjustment and track forward and back buttons.

Either set is recharged with a USB cable, with life rated at up to 12 hours for the larger BT101s and 8 hours for the BT100CX set. The earbuds ship with three sizes of silicon earbuds for a comfortable fit in user's ears. The A2DP, AVRCP, HFP and HSP Bluetooth profiles are supported by either product.

Sony has not released ship dates nor pricing information for either new set.

    um no stereo

    But the iphone does not have bluetooth stereo, correct? So you need a dongle of some sort?

    Then you have to have the headphones connected to two devices... the phone and the dongle. And switching is always problematic.

    I have the imuffs, which are good headphones for bluetooth stereo, but the whole setup for taking a call is just not worth it.

    Hopefully this will be better
