Gear4 has announced BluPhones, its wireless stereo headphones for Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, laptops and iPods.

The 26g headphones, priced at under £50, can be used with a Bluetooth mobile phone, when they will alert users to incoming calls and automatically pause songs when you are dealing with a call. Users answer the call using a button on the headset. Music automatically restarts at the end of a call.

Tom Dudderidge, managing director of Gear4, commented: “Until now, Bluetooth headphones have all been too bulky, heavy yet flimsy, with a poor battery life and expensive. We wanted to produce something that was comfortable, looked good and most importantly, was easy to use.”

The BluPhones cost £49.99.
