JayZ headphones get FCC nod

But we don't know if Motorola headphones bear any relation to the rapper.

Jay-Z
Will the JayZ headphones bear any relation to this guy? Rock-A-Fella Records

Motorola's "JayZ" headphones passed FCC muster (PDF), though we don't yet know if they're in any way connected to the rapper/music impresario/Beyonce husband of the same name. (Given the recent arrival of the Dr. Dre headphones , we wouldn't be surprised if they are).

The Federal Communications Commission filing reveals that you can use the JayZ headphones with your Bluetooth audio device and Bluetooth cell phone simultaneously. If you're listening to music and your phone rings, you can transfer the call to your headphones. Hang up the call with a push of a button and your music automatically continues to play.

That's all we know for now. Stay tuned...
