Sony Ericsson reveals three new headsets

Going high-end

If you, like most people, are disappointed by the quality of the bundled headset with your latest mobile phone, then the new selection of headsets from Sony Ericsson might be worth a look, as these three new models should appeal to a wide range of users.

First up, we have the HPM-66 which are meant for active people, i.e. those that don't mind taking their phone with them on a jog or to the gym, as they feature an over-the-ear clip design that should keep them in place firmly. They feature a 3.5mm jack and come with a 1m cable.

Next up we have the HPM-88 noise cancelling headphones, which feature active noise cancelling which is meant to reduce background noise by as much as 75 percent. They come with a  built in control unit on the cable and can only be used with phones that have the Sony Ericsson Fast Port connector on them.

The downside of these headphones is that they'll deplete your mobiles battery faster than normal headphones, but on the upside is the fact that they don't require a separate battery as most noise-cancelling headphones do.

Finally, we have the HBH-IS800, which is a set of in-ear headphones that connects via Bluetooth 2.0. They're the smallest Bluetooth headphones we've ever seen and they have a tiny "lump" on the cable which connects the two together which contains the sync button and battery. The battery is good for 4h of usage and up to 270h of standby.

All of the headsets are supplied with a carrying case and are expected to be available from sometime in Q4.
