MH907 Motion Activated Headphones

Sony Ericsson this morning claimed a minor industry first through the MH907. The in-ear buds have built-in capacitive motion sensing that automatically start or stop audio on a phone based on their contact with the wearer's ears. Putting both earbuds in place will either start music or answer an incoming call; taking one earbud out will pause music or end a call.

Accordingly, the set has an in-line mic to take calls but doesn't need a remote for control. The earbuds are limited to Sony Ericsson's proprietary phone port but should come in either black or yellow colors. They should be made available later this week in Europe first for 39 Euros ($57).
