We suppose it’s not every company that can stake their reputations on Bluetooth headsets alone. BlueAnt, a brand best known for its voice-controlled earpieces, is getting ready to ship a headset of the wired persuasion. What you see up there is the Embrace, a pair of comfy-looking on-ear headphones with leather pads, an integrated mic, and iPhone-compatible controls that let you make calls and play, pause, and skip audio tracks. It has a 69-inch cable, and comes with a handy 3.5mm-to-6.3mm adapter and faux-leather case, but mostly, we have a sweet spot for headsets that fold flat. The company doesn’t expect them to ship for a few weeks, which gives you a bit of time to start saving up the requisite $199.
