Is Google going to launch a pair of Bluetooth headphones? FCC seems to say so (UPDATE)
Update: Unfortunately, the Bluetooth headphones listed at FCC are exclusively meant for Google employees. Since the current model is already very old, the search giant thought to refresh it. The pair of headphones recently approved by the regulatory commission will replace the old model.
Google may be at it again, as the search giant is readying an exciting product for its fans, pair of Bluetooth headphones. The audio accessory has been recently spotted at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), along with several pictures, which is a bit unusual for an unannounced device.
More importantly, the technical specifications of the Bluetooth headphones are listed at FCC as well. However, we've been able to learn some of the most interesting details from the pictures in the gallery.
For starters, the headphones feature ANC (Active Noise Canceling) that can be enabled/disabled using a dedicated toggle. The 600 mAh battery inside the headphones charges through a microUSB.
Also, the technical specifications mention the battery should last for 25 hours, but only 16 hours if ANC is enabled, or even less (10 hours) when at maximum level.
On each cup of the headphones, there are various controls for the volume, play/pause, as well as on/off. The only thing that reveals the headphones are made by the search giant is the well-known Google circle in four colors.
Now, let's see when Google is going to make this pair of Bluetooth headphones official, and how much they will cost.
