Sony Bluetooth Speakers

In spite of its reputation as a leading-edge technology company, Sony has been slow to adopt it through its products. At a recent Japanese dealer convention, however, the company unveiled a raft of new audio hardware designed to integrate the wireless standard. One of these, so far named only the HWS-NEW (pictured, left), is a Bluetooth audio transmitter that acts as the hub for multiple audio devices. It can toggle between serving as a transmitter and receiver, either broadcasting audio to Bluetooth stereo speaker sets like its SRS-NEW counterpart (right) or receiving the audio from a wireless source.

Also revealed was a set of Bluetooth headphones, the DR-NEW2, that can use its included Bluetooth transmitter to both receive audio from a cellphone and pause the music when that same cellphone receives a call. These early examples have yet to be given firm prices or release dates, but they should be available in Japan and abroad within the next few months.
