OTTO MP3 Headset and More
Normally a producer of professional audio hardware, OTTO today unveiled a trio of new devices just for the mainstream. Standing out is the OT-3 headset: the entire device is a self-contained music systme, combining both a 512MB music player and behind-the-head earphones. Tracks are controlled through one of the ear cups and allows for 7 EQ settings despite the lack of a screen. Charging is accomplished through USB and provides up to six hours of listening. It ships today for $85.
Also released are the OT-2 Car Kit, a Bluetooth hands-free adapter that either pairs with a wireless headset or works as its own speakerphone, and the OT-4 surround headset for private listening to games and movies with full sound. These too are set to ship from Otto today at prices of $130 and $40 respectively.
