Sennheiser BT headsets
Sennheiser has announced it will soon add the MM 400 and MM 450 Travel Bluetooth 2.1 over-the-ear headsets to its Mobile Music lineup. Intended for music and phone calls, both the MM 400 and MM 450 Travel have an invisible microphone and have a wired connection option with the included cable and adapters for when wireless connections are not an option, like on a flight, or when users want to save battery life. Controls are placed on the right speaker pod, including volume, power and track navigation buttons. Meant for travelers, the headsets fold flat in their molded travel cases, and the headband is reinforced with metal to avoid snapping. Either also has an airline-friendly adapter.
The MM 450 Travel set includes Sennheiser's NoiseGard 2.0 background noise-cancelling technology. The set also has a TalkThrough feature, which lets users listen to outside sounds without removing the headset. A press of a button activates the external microphone while muting whatever is currently being listened to and feeding the external sound into the speakers.
Either set can be charged through a USB port or the included charger that includes plug adapters for Europe, the USA, the UK and Australia.
While both the MM 400 and MM 450 Travel will ship in September, pricing for either headset hasn't been announced.
