Sennheiser headsets

German audio products maker Sennheiser has announced the availability of three new headsets designed for use with smartphones- as "universal" designs, they'll work with iPhones, BlackBerrys, Samsung, HTC handsets and all the rest. The headsets are based on existing designs, but now incorporate smartphone controls and microphones. The new headsets include two over the ear models and one earbud model.

The $80 HD 219s is an on-the-ear headset with a closed back design to help reduce outside noise, while the $100 HD429s goes around your ears and delivers meatier bass response. If you don't want big cans cupping the sides of your head like a DJ, the MM 70s may be more your style - earbuds that rest in your ear canal, based on one of Sennheiser's most popular models.

All of them feature neodymium magnets and inline controls to manage calls, adjust volume up and down, play and pause music and change tracks.

I'm not much into earbuds but those HD 429s look mighty tasty.

You can get more info from Sennheiser's Web site, and they should be available from wherever Sennheiser stuff is sold.
