I have a pair of wraparound Sony headphones that a huge improvement over the standard set of buds that came with my MP3 player. They provide a good level of bass, clean sound, and a single cord design that helps eliminate tangles. Maybe I’m ready for an upgrade. Maybe I’m ready to eschew cables altogether. Sony is coming to the rescue with two sets of stereo Bluetooth headphones targeted at audiophiles.
The more substantial of the two is the Sony DR-BT50, a high fidelity set of deejay style cans that supports all sorts of wireless protocols including A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP. It’ll give you 17 hours of head-pounding juice on a single charge, operating between 20 and 20,000 Hz. It weighs 180 grams.
If you prefer a more lightweight, behind-the-neck design, then the DR-BT21G might be more your cup of tea. Available in black or white, these headphones support the same sampling of Bluetooth protocols, but tip the scales at a mere 63 grams.
No word on pricing or availability for either set of Bluetooth headphones.
