Sony-Ericsson HBH-PV712

As a quick follow-up to its phone announcements at the start of CES, Sony-Ericsson today released the HBH-PV712 Style Edition. The Bluetooth earpiece is targeted at women who want hands-free calling but are still image-conscious: in addition to three different faceplates to match its colors to clothing, it also incorporates an ear hook designed to accommodate long hair. Carrying the headset is also unique. While a pouch keeps it and its companion phone from being crushed in a bag, a necklace bundled with the headset lets women hang the headset from their neck without its seeming out of place with dress clothes, Sony-Ericsson claims.

The PV712 is nonetheless designed to be fully capable and relies on a fast automatic volume adjuster to raise the earbud volume in a loud room or outdoors. It can automatically pair with two different devices and runs for an extra-long 15 hours between recharges. Sony-Ericsson's latest headset works with any cellphone or audio device that supports Bluetooth's hands-free profile and should be available worldwide next month for a price to be set later.
