BlueAnt Goes Wired for the First Time – Embrace Headset with Mic

Posted by at 12:51 am on July 7, 2011

BlueAnt, which is best known for its line of Bluetooth-based headsets for mobile devices, is now offering the Embrace, a traditional pair of over-ear headphones that combine the high-quality sound of headphones with the functionality of headsets, including an integrated mic and control mechanism.

The Embrace headset is the first wired product from the company, and comes with a longer-than-average 69-inch stereo audio cable as well as a protective faux-leather case and a standard 3.5mm-to-6.3mm adapter. The headphones should retail for $200 and sport audio specs in line with its price range: 20-20k hertz, 103dB sensitivity, 24 ohm impedance and a max power of 15mW. It offers a 40mm driver, a folding design that folds flat, and a one-year warranty. Early reviews have been generally very positive.

The headphones themselves are made of premium leather and metal materials that borrow inspiration from Bowers & Wilkins’ P5 headphones, and the company says the product offers a nearly-perfectly flat frequency response for true fidelity, along with highly-optimized drivers for purity and detail. An additional standard “straight-though” cable is also included for traditional stereo use.

The Embrace is available for pre-order now and is expected to ship in the next few weeks.
