Along with the Nokia 5800 Xpress Music and its Comes with Music promotion, Nokia also announced a slew of stereo headsets to match its new music-focused products on Thursday. The Nokia BH-504 is the only Bluetooth headset of the bunch, with the ability to handle calls as well as listen to music wirelessly. Looking a lot like regular over-the-ear headphones, it's fully foldable, with advanced digital signal processing that includes echo cancellation and noise reduction. It has the typical multifunction button as well as music player controls and a volume rocker. The BH-504 has a rated battery life of 9 hours talk time, 7.5 hours music time, and 3.75 days standby time.

The other three headsets are of the wired variety, and all three have call management features. The WH-202 has ear clips for long-wear comfort and has a 2.5mm connector for cell phones with that headset jack, though it doesn't have music player controls. The WH-500 has a design similar to that of the BH-504, plus it has music keys such as play/pause and next/previous track and a 3.5 mm connector (as well as a 2.5mm adapter). Finally, the WH-800 earbuds come with adjustable ear hooks, a volume rocker, a carrying case, and a 3.5 mm connector plus a 2.5mm adapter.
