Sony Ericsson has launched a new range of music accessories for its handsets. Three new music headsets, an FM music transmitter and a music desk stand make up the collection.
The silver stereo Bluetooth headset HBH-DS200 weighs 13.5g. Its built-in rechargeable battery provides up to seven hours talk or music time and up to 300 hours of standby time. It will be available in Q2 this year.
The stereo portable handsfree headset HPM-90 has been designed for the Walkman phone range and has an OLED screen allowing users to see incoming calls. The silver and black headset is equipped with five keys on its cord.
Another stereo portable handsfree accessory, the HPM-83, also comes in silver or black and weighs 52.6g and has a flexible neckband that wraps behind the neck. It has call handling keys for answering and rejecting calls and will be released in Q3.
The FM music transmitter MMR-70 allows users to play music stored on their handset through radio speakers. By plugging the 11mm slim, 9g MMR-70 into the handset and choosing an available frequency on your radio, the tracks are transmitted by radio waves to the speakers. The accessory works at a range of up to ten metres (between the phone and the FM radio) and remembers the last frequency used for easy reconnection. This silver, grey, orange and black accessory will be available from Q3.
Sony Ericsson's MDS-65 can be used as either a battery-powered standalone music player or plugged into speakers. This music desk stand charges the phone while it plays music. Its rotating system connector is compatible with all current Sony Ericsson handsets. The MDS-65 has been designed in black and silver and weighs 720g. It is 127mm wide, 268mm long and 42mm thick, and will be available from Q3 in selected markets.
