LAS VEGAS--Shocker. BlueAnt is branching out from its wireless Bluetooth roots and going, well, wired.
The company's officially unveiled a new premium stereo "headset" that's really a set of stylishly designed over-ear headphones that include an integrated mic and controls for the iPhone that allow you to make hands-free calls and play, pause, and track-forward audio selections.
The new BlueAnt stereo headset, which seems to have drawn some inspiration from B&W's P5 headphones, folds flat and comes with an extended-length (69 inch) stereo audio cable, a 3.5mm-to-6.3mm adapter, and a protective cloth storage case.
The product is scheduled to ship in the second quarter of this year. No word on pricing, but BlueAnt will most likely make it more affordable than other premium stereo headphones in hopes of gaining a foothold in this competitive market.
