Nokia has today broadened its range of music and handsfree accessories by introducing two stereo headsets, two sets of speakers and three new Bluetooth headset models.
The Nokia Stereo Headset HS-81, produced in cooperation with Sennheiser Communications comes in a stylish black/grey color combination, featuring a strong neckband, comfortably sized earpads, and specific call control functionality. The HS-62 are full-sized headphones for high quality music experience with 40 mm stereo speakers, and can be folded away for easy storage or travel.
Nokia also offers two new portable speakers - Mini Speakers MD-4 and Music Speakers MD-3. The MD-4
speakers weigh 130g and sport a thin, V-shaped innovative design that makes them suitable for carrying in the pocket. They feature a built-in stereo amplifier for high-quality sound, as well as an integrated radio antenna. On the other hand, the MD-3
speakers feature a classic design with claimed small dimensions and excellent bass and sound. They have a 3.5mm audio connector, so some Nokia adaptors are included to make them compatible with various models by the manufacturer.
