In my never-ending quest to eliminate all wires, cords and other unsightly appendages from my life, I’m pleased to hear that Creative has revealed a new set of high-quality wireless headphones, designed to transmit audio using Bluetooth technology.
Creative’s SE2300 Bluetooth Wireless Headphones can work from up to 10 meters away from the transmitter. They feature high-fidelity neodymium drivers, with a frequency response range of 20 Hz ~ 20 kHz. The headphones come with a small transmitter which plugs into your media player, laptop or other audio source via a 1.5mm mini stereo plug, but you can also use them to pair directly with other Bluetooth enabled devices such as mobile phones and PDAs. The headphones have a rechargeable battery quoted to run for appx. 6 to 8 hours (YMMV), on a 3 hour charge. If you don’t want to carry a charger, you can also charge them using a USB port.
The headphones are listed at $129.99 USD on Creative’s North American website, but just $99.99 USD on their Singapore site, so hopefully the price will come down in the US to match that.
