Sony: Two New Bluetooth Headphones
Sony has released its two new Bluetooth 2.1 headphones DR-BT100CX and DR-BT101. The main difference though is that BT100CX sports an in-ear design and BT101 looks like traditional headphones.
Both of them feature finger-tip controls for volume, play and skip music tracks, alongside the ability to either accept or reject incoming calls. The former will come with USB charging, offering up to 8 hours of continual audio playback and a trio.
Sony’s in-ear cans only take 2.5 hours to recharge, but user will have to wait for four hours before the BT101 headphones will be fully powered up. Unsurprisingly, the overhead model’s longer charge translates into 12 hours of life and 200 hours of standby time, compared to just eight hours' playback and 120 hours standby life on the BT100CX model. Both units are charged through USB.
User controls for the BT100CX headphones are built onto a small controller unit and the larger over-ear can’s buttons are built onto each earphone.
Both models are available online.
