These headphones cost $160 bucks. (Nokia BH-604)

June 20, 2007 in Nokia Phone Accessories

Possibly a new record?

At the Nokia Connection event in Singapore, Nokia introduced the BH-604, a new set of “DJ” type headphones – in other words, those giant ones that completely cover your ear and generally the entire side of your head too, for good measure.

Introducing the Nokia BH-604 Bluetooth Headphones

The Nokia BH-604′s are fully Bluetooth 2.0 compatible, and can be used as a hands-free headset in addition to listening to heart-pounding music.

It goes without saying that these support the A2DP standard. However, if you’re thinking of buying the BH-604s, know that only certain Nokia phones are A2DP compatible (most Nseries phones DO NOT support A2DP) – basically, the N95, N91 (8GB version), 880x series, 6126/6131, certain midrange sliders (6280, 6288), and a couple other random 6xxx phones.

According to Nokia, these headphones also provide “Hi-Fi” audio quality – a generic term that, to be honest, I’m not even sure what it is. I do know that these ‘phones are freakin’ expensive, however: Nokia has priced them at 140-160 euros, which translates into $160 to $214 bucks, before tax. That’s a hefty sum for a pair of A2DP headphones, considering that the last deal was $26 for a decent pair of Kyoceras.

Then again, the BH-604s look like they’re about ten times larger.
