creative se2300 bluetooth wireless earphones

Already bought the one you love an iPod, Zune, Zen or somesuch? Want to know what to get 'em next? Ask Creative, and it'll suggest a pair of its new Bluetooth 'phones, among the least bulky wireless cans we've seen.

The SE2300 set comprises the usual transmitter dongle, which plugs into any player's 3.5mm earphone socket, digitises the audio stream and beams it to the 'phones. These are a pair of clip-on speakers connected by a cable - so they're not entirely wire-free, unlike older 'phones with a headband.

Creative claimed the set's rechargeable battery has enough capacity for up to eight hours' wireless stereo playback.

The SE2300 earphones go on sale in the Far East first, for around $100 (£51/€77), Creative said, but we expect them to appear over here in due course. ®
