Nokia Purity Pro wireless headset announced

Nokia doesn't just sell smartphones, the company also offers up other products. In 2011, it announced it was teaming up with Monster to release the Purity HD stereo headset. Today, the company announced a new version of the product, the Purity Pro Wireless.

In a post on Nokia's official blog, the company said that the new Purity headsets will be Bluetooth enabled and they will also support NFC smartphones and devices for one-touch pairing. As usual with Nokia, the Purity Pro Wireless headset will come in a variety of different colors: red, yellow, white and black.

The headset should also help tune out any outside noise. Nokia said, "The crisp, clear sound quality delivered by the Purity Pro is enhanced by Monster’s active noise cancellation technology. This includes feed forward and feedback technology for ambient and percussive noise cancellation."

The headsets will go on sale sometime in the fourth quarter of 2012 for 299 euros in Europe. There's no word on when the Purity Pro Wireless will go on sale in the US nor what its price point will be. However, we suspect the headsets will look good standing next to Nokia's upcoming Windows Phone devices which will be officially revealed on Wednesday.

Could potentially be important for future branding for Nokia. When you see someone with a white cord, you know it is a Apple headset. This could be something in the line of that.

299 Euros?

Nokia thinks they are Apple?

You don't know the price of some headphones do you, they've got $500 and even $1k headphones out there from what I know. I know a few people who've spent $300+ on theirs.

Last headphones I bought I paid €199 for. Nothing new there, I would even pay that price if they are worth it. You have no idea how many audiophiles are out there. But if they are crap, I'm sorry Nokia but...nice try.

Right GP007, anyone that has different opinions has to be ignorant.

I am well aware of headphone prices. I own and listened to headphones worth $1000+. I am a musician (not Audiophile tho). For $299 you have MANY MANY BETTER choices, such as, AKG K702, Grado SR325is, etc..

I use a pair of Nokia BH-905i's. Different design and active noise cancellation technology, but they're amazing. They offer very good sound quality, and certainly the best I've heard over Bluetooth (although I only have experience with two other Bluetooth headphones).

The noise cancellation feature of the BH-905i doesn't shut out all sounds around you perfectly (particularly high-pitched sounds), but it does a very impressive job with most other sounds. I tested them at a Starbucks and found that they shut out conversations around me almost perfectly, and did a good job of reducing the sound from the coffee shop's in-store music. I would expect that the noise cancellation on these headsets would be even better.

The BH-905i was priced similarly, but the price always goes down with time.

I like the look of these, and prefer this ear cup design. Whenever my BH-905i kicks the bucket, these might make for a nice replacement.

So high! freaking crazy, i would never spend so much on headphones

I would, but it certainly wouldn't be on these piles of ****. Obviously, that is a pre-concived opinion, and I really would like to be wrong, but I'd bet my left bollock that it's on the money.

Shambolic pricing.

It'll end up like the Beats headphones, waste of money and the quality based on bass.


That's the entire Monster range summed up to a tee.
