BlueAnt set to ship Embrace stereo headphones

BluAnt is getting ready to ship its first wired stereo headphones, a premium model called the Embrace.

BluAnt's Embrace stereo headphones retail for $199.99. Notice the company's new logo on the earpiece.

Back at CES in January we reported that BlueAnt was branching out from its wireless Bluetooth roots and going, well, wired.

Now the company is officially getting set to ship the new premium stereo "headset," which has been given a name--Embrace--and a price: $199.99. The stylishly designed over-ear headphones 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 Embrace, which seems to have drawn some design inspiration from B&W's P5 headphones, folds flat and comes with an extended-length (36 inch) stereo audio cable, a 3.5mm-to-6.3mm adapter, and a protective faux-leather storage case.

The Embrace is currently available for preorder and should start shipping in the next few weeks. We just received a review sample and will let you know how the headphones sound after we give them a test spin.
