I wrote recently about CSR's development kit for Bluetooth headphones, and the need for wireless headphones. Lo and behold, there is a shipping set of Bluetooth headphones, and I was quite impressed with the quality.
This set hails from Logitech, and is built with Bluetooth silicon from Broadcom (the BCM4301). This IC includes the baseband and radio on the same piece of silicon. Broadcom's next-generation part (announced earlier this year), the BCM2037, adds Bluetooth's Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) feature.
As for the headphones, the audio quality was top-notch, as good as you get a wired pair in a similar price range. And the range was better than expected, probably around 30 or 40 ft.
As usual, I have one complaintthe headphones only work with Apple's iPod, which is not my MP3 player of choice. They chose this system (I believe) because it allows them to incorporate other features, like pausing the music, selecting songs, etc. There's another version that are more universal (with less features), but that's not the one that I tested.
All in all, I'd say it's a winner of a product.
