Default Touch Sensitive Headset



I ran across these on engadget here while looking at various headphones. I’m not sure how I missed during all the CES news but interesting to say the least and very unique/sleek looking. Not sure how I would like a wireless headphone but at least they included a 3.5mm jack in case you prefer cables. With active-noise cancellation, a touch pad that allows changing the volume, FF and skipping tunes, etc, you could probably call these smart headphones

I do find some of the features interesting, like when you take them off the tunes pause, but could all these features add to issues down the road and what a PITA to fix or source parts for the DIY crowd. I’m not sure what they’ll sell for but my guess is they’ll be much more expensive than the bose quietcomfort noise canceling phones. Even though I never found the bose to my liking when I tried them, they're a common reference point when talking NC. All that said, I would still like to test out the new Parrot's but would hate to shell out the going price and I doubt that BB will have them on display

With the FF/REV controls I'd bet these are "Apple specific" headphones.
