New Sony Bluetooth head-end powers calls, music

Sony Xplod BT2500

As one of its final announcements from its press day, Sony added a single Xplod head unit to its car stereos. The MEX-BT2500 makes Bluetooth a realistic option for most drivers, Sony claims. Combining a transmitter and noise-reducing microphone lets the CD player stand in as a hands-free calling hub for most Bluetooth cellphones. The head-end's wireless stereo support also works with more recent music phones (including much of Sony-Ericsson's Walkman line) and any other portable media player with Bluetooth inside. A front-mounted auxiliary input jack is present for plugging in iPods or other music devices without the wireless standard.

The BT2500 can drive as much as 52W of power across four channels and includes the by now de facto support for MP3 and WMA audio CDs. Sony's latest Xplod unit will be set for a March launch at a price of $180. A full image is ready after the break.
