Growing up, the Walkman line was the be-all and end-all when it came to portable music. Sony is trying to maintain that reputation with the arrival of the Sony Japan DR-BT100CXP Bluetooth headset. Yes, I know that the Walkman line isn’t quite what it used to be, but it’s still a very recognizable moniker.
The new DR-BT100CXP is designed with music phones in mind, working to serve your music collection without a wired connection while still being able to handle voice calls when those come your way as well. The earphones offer that great in-ear style while the microphone is located on the remote that’ll dangle from your neck.
The remote can be used for power, changing tracks, and adjusting the volume. For the more stylish in the audience, the Sony DR-BT100CXP is available in blue, white, red, or pink. The wireless signal gets bounced via Bluetooth 2.1+EDR.
Personally, while I enjoy stereo Bluetooth headsets for the tune-filled side of things, I’ve found that the dangling microphones don’t work nearly as well for picking up my voice compared to conventional Bluetooth headsets. If you’re leaning more toward musical quality, however, the DR-BT100CXP might be a good choice.
Look for it starting February 10 in Japan for about eighty bucks.
