JBL iPod headphones

Harman brand JBL has released two new sets of headphones in its Reference series. Foremost are the 610s, which come with a dongle that allows volume and track adjustment on iPods, using controls located on the headphones themselves. iPods from the fourth generation onward are supported. The 610s also benefit from a Bluetooth receiver, which allows wireless interaction with devices that support A2DP stereo and/or AVRCP controls. An over-the-ear design features leather lining and a choice of black or white colors. Harman is selling the set online for $200.

The Reference 420s are identical to the 610s cosmetically, but omit both Bluetooth and iPod support, instead compensating with a higher maximum input of 50mW instead of 40. Like the 610s, the 420s are bundled with a protective case and adapters for airline and stereo phono use. Black or white versions of the 420s sell for $150 each.

    great, but...

    The specs on the website say they are compatible with Bluetooth cell phones as well as iPods. But are they compatible with bluetooth cell phones and iPods at the same time??? I love my iMuffs (I know, unfortunate name) because they allow phone calls to pause the music, answer the call, then after the call is over, restart the music.

    Paradigm shift, indeed. If my iMuffs only had the ear-cup form factor, they would be rated 100 stars in my book. Now just 9 out of 10.
