Sony introduces stylish NFC enabled speakers and headphones at IFA

Sony introduces stylish NFC enabled speakers and headphones at IFA
Along with Sony’s major smartphone unveiling today, the Japanese company brought a couple of great accessories to introduce at IFA 2012 in Berlin.

First, the NFC and Bluetooth-enabled external speakers that you can easily carry around, referred to as the SRS-BTM8. To play music you simply tap your NFC-enabled device to the speakers and the pairing and streaming magic happens automatically. Available in black and white, the speakers work with 4 AA batteries and promise to deliver 20 hours of non-stop music.

Second, Sony introduced the MDR-1 series of headphones including a wired model (MDR-1R), a wireless Bluetooth one (MDR-1BT) and the noise-cancelling model (MDR-1RNC). The last model also features NFC connectivity for easy pairing and streaming. The headphones will arrive to retailers in October, but the price is yet an unknown.

Check out how stylish these new Sony accessories look like, neat, eh?
