Sony Ericsson unveils new headsets for music mobiles

Mobile phones

Sony Ericsson has announced some new headsets for mixing your music listening with call handling on your mobile phone.

The Walkman-branded HPM-82 features a typical in-ear design, with different sized silicone ear buds provided to ensure a good fit and a clearer sound. You can leave your music phone in your pocket and use the black remote control to handle calls, direct your play list, play and pause, choose the next or previous song and adjust the volume.

If you want something a bigger in both size and sound, it might be worth looking at the HPM-85 headset instead. It features high-energy neodymium magnet speakers, along with 30mm diameter driver units, which are positioned for a deep bass sound and lower distortion to your ears. It’s also built for comfort, with a molded headband and ear cushions, which are reversible for single ear monitoring. The remote control lets you keep your phone in your pocket when handling calls and using the music functions.

Both headsets are available later this year, no price as yet.
