Logitech to debut wireless headphones for iPod

image

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.

Mowing the lawn with these?!  . . . There would be a soothing sound of a 4hp Briggs & Stratton engine mixed nicely over the top of whatever playing on your device. I take the train to and from work and the only thing that works in a high volume environment are in-ear (that’s in the canal) buds.

I think we might be hitting some threshold of dimmishing returns—any benefit garnered from losing a mostly unobtrusive headphone cable has to be offset (if not overshadowed) by the hassle of dealing with yet another recharger. Every night I go through an expanding exercise—recharge the laptop, phone, iPod, blutooth headset, digital camera. I’m mostly interested in how all these devices may someday consolidate (within limits of course).

Did any body try it?
I just noticed that there is another found in Apple Store (web) iM402 which is BT headphone (Stereo) and mobile phone pairing. Did anyone try that too? I really need some reviews to make the decision on which one I should buy.
