imageLogitech on Wednesday will introduce a new set of Bluetooth wireless headphones for the iPod. The “Logitech Wireless Headphones for iPod” package includes a wireless behind-the-head headset and a small receiver that plugs into the top of any Dock Connector iPod (3G, 4G, photo and mini).

The $149.99 headphones, which weigh 3.2 ounces, feature integrated controls (volume, track forward, track backward, play and pause) and work up to 30 feet away from your iPod.

imageLogitech said that the headphones and the adapter are paired at the factory for a quicker out-of-the-box use. They’re both also powered by rechargeable batteries, which provide up to eight hours of playback time.

The Logitech Wireless Headphones for iPod will be available in July throughout the U.S. and Europe. You can read iLounge’s review here.

I want a pair.  Rig a mic in there and make it compatable with my cell phone and these would totally kick butt.

These look identical to the HP Bluetooth headphones, except in white.

150 is too much. 100 would be alright.

I just wish they made one that would look normal on the iPod mini as well .. (like iTrip mini). oh well.

And the sound quality would better be good for $150.

Will this be compatible with other bluetooth devices? For instance, will I be able to listen to iTunes on my powerbook or hear audio from a BT phone?

If I spend $150 I want to be able to use these headphones with my laptop too. Do you think since they are bluetooth that they’d be compatible like that?

I’ve been waiting for this for awhile.  How great will it be to mow the lawn with these things?  Looking forward to hearing other people’s opinions about the sound.  Sometimes it’s not so good to buy the first of anything.  May wait until Christmas to see what else comes out.

sounds like they are not worth the money.

Hmm! $20 headphone quality for $150. You’d have to have your head examined!

Yep.  After reading a review looks like I’m just going to have to wait a little longer.
