Motorola S305 headphones
Motorola has recently introduced its latest set of headphones, the wireless stereoMOTOROKR S305. Like others, they use Bluetooth's A2DP standard for connecting with compatible devices and receiving a stereo signal with controls. The 30mm (nearly 1.2-inch) drivers in each earpod are relatively large and said to deliver a wider music range, with the outside of one of the pod's housing the audio track navigation, volume and call controls.
The headphones allow users to make phone calls as well, with music that pauses when a call comes in and automatically resumes when it has ended. Motorola says the MOTOROKR S305 is compatible with over 200 Bluetooth phones. The integrated lithium-ion battery's life is rated at 6.5 hours of talk time, 6 hours of music playback and 100 hours of stand-by time. The set weighs in at 1.8 ounces.
The MOTOROKR S305 headphones will be available at the start of April, though Motorola has not yet announced their price.
