Weighing in at 27g, the selling points here include digital noise cancellation/echo reduction to reduce background noise, Bluetooth 2.0 for better quality voice calls, A2DP for music streaming in stereo, three sizes of silicon ear buds for a perfect fit, and a hidden OLED display, only visible when the headset is in use and able to show the song details, battery status or caller detail.
You can also use the HBH-DS980 with more than one device at the same time – a multipoint function allows you to listen to music stored on a Bluetooth-enabled PC/laptop and handle calls from your phone at the same time. Talk or music playback time is quoted at six hours.
The HBH-DS980 will be available worldwide from the third quarter of 2007. No price as yet.
