Jabra Rox Wireless Is A Rugged, Low-Profile Bluetooth In-Ear Headset

Introduced late last year, Jabra's new Rox Wireless is one of the smallest and most lightweight wireless in-ear headphones that we have seen. And they're now available to purchase at Apple retail stores and online. The $130 wireless in-ear stereo headset was designed to withstand the abuse of your daily gym and active lifestyle grind whilst enabling you to listen to music and answer an incoming call without a cable running down your body, and having to touch your smartphone or iPod. The Rox Wireless features in-line remote for music playback control, a microphone designed to cancel background noise while you talk, and a rugged, water and sweat-resistant solid steel construction with built-in magnets that allow you to clip the two earbuds together around you neck while they automatically activate a power saving mode.  

Jabra has partnered with Dolby to enhance the Rox Wireless' audio using the Jabra Sound app to provide "a rich and immersive, full-spectrum sound experience that brings your device to life and adds extra depth and dimension to your music." But even without using the app, the Rox Wireless should deliver clear sound with a bass punch.

Oh yes it's about time Sony releases a pair of over-ear wireless headphones. These are not any normal wireless headphones though, the Sony Wireless Stereo Headset is built for gamers and features a 7.1 virtual surround sound promising that you will hear every little detail in the game. Other add-ons such as on board volume control, retractable boom mic with a mute button and on-screen battery headset and sound control status updates will let you game all day long with no interruption. Button controls will be accessible by simply tapping or sliding your finger on the headset's surface.
