As well as the new handsets, Sony Ericsson also has a batch of new accessories on the market – the HBH-PV702 and HBH-PV710 Bluetooth headsets plus HPM-75 stereo portable handsfree unit.
The HBH-PV702 Bluetooth headset is available with a black or white cover, weighs 14g and offers up to 8 hours talk time, with around 200 hours of standby and can be used with any compatible Bluetooth handset, Sony Ericsson or not. The HBH-PV710 boosts talk and standby times to up to 12 and 300 hours respectively and comes in a more bold colour range – red and brown are included in the starter kit. Between calls it can hang on a supplied neck strap, slipping onto the ear when needed.
The HPM-75 stereo portable handsfree unit is an upgrade to the HPM-70. It comes with spare ear buds of different sizes, which can be swapped over for a perfect fit to block out external noise. A microphone and call answer button are on the cord for accessing calls.
The PV702 is available from mid 2007, the PV710 is available in the coming weeks and the HPM-75 is available later this year.
