Philips India has introduced the Philips Hi-Fi Stereo headphone-SBC HP800, touted as "combining technology and revolutionary design features".
The Philips SBC HP800 boasts zero-distortion sound thanks to its 40mm neodymium speaker drivers. The advantages of the soft ear pads, besides of course comfort, is that there is no spillover sound, so you can crank up the volume without disturbing anyone around you. The headphones are light, which is useful for marathon listening.
According to Gunjan Srivastava, director -- Audio and Video Business Group, Consumer Electronics, Philips India, "The superior quality and the natural sound isolation of the headphone makes it an exceptional travelling companion on noisy road trips."
In addition, the Philips Hi-Fi Stereo headphone SBC HP800 can be hooked up to either the computer, portable player or can be used on a simple home hi-fi using the larger gold-plated 6.3mm stereo adapter jack. The Philips Hi-Fi Stereo headphone SBC HP800 comes with a 3 meter-long cable, which you can plug into any system.

Logitech Mobile Bluetooth headset
Logitech has launched its Bluetooth Mobile wire-free headset for Bluetooth-enabled cellphones. This new headset features a lightweight design, the latest Bluetooth 1.2 chipset, which includes Adaptive Frequency Hopping technology to reduce problematic wi-fi interference, and the company's patent-pending Windstop technology, so people can easily make calls even in noisy conditions. This innovation reduces the disruptive effects of wind noise, which is usually a major problem for cellphones.The Logitech headset offers seven hours of continuous talk time and up to 300 hours of standby time, which means it needs recharging only half as often as the mobile phone.
