These multimedia headphones from RIM were spotted at CES by Kevin though they were called Executive headphones at the time. I was just told that they are already available for $39.99 at eSHOPlimited.com. These headphones essentially add Play/Pause, next track, and previous track buttons to the RIM premium stereo headsets that were available before.
From the description:
Remember those times when you are listening to music on your BlackBerry device with your favorite wired headset and then suddenly somebody starts talking? Yes, we experienced those! We grab our BlackBerry device to put it to Pause, or worse — pull our earpieces out while the music is still playing.. ouch!
Not anymore, thanks to this Premium Multimedia Headset from RIM. Who needs to do their controls on their BlackBerry device when you can do it right on your BlackBerry Multimedia Headset? Come with BlackBerry Headset Pouch.
