Samsung teams with Bang & Olufsen on headset

Samsung WEP 420

Samsung continued its CeBIT introductions today by launching two new Bluetooth headsets. Similar to the earlier collaboration on the Serene cellphone, the WEP 420 (pictured) was designed with the help of Danish stereo makers Bang & Olufsen and supports their aesthetic with real functionalitty: a sliding cover not only hides the clutter of the call button but is also said to block interference, Samsung claims. The straight-edged charging cradle is also styled to work as an interior decoration. WEP 420 headsets ship in March for an unspecified price.

As an alternative, Samsung says, callers can also choose the WEP 500 (below): the miniature headset emphasizes its size over style and includes call and volume buttons immediately accessible around the edges of the rounded shape. Unlike the WEP 420, the WEP 500 is primarily targeted at Asia and Europe and will ship to those areas in April.
