BlueAnt has been making high quality Bluetooth headsets for a few years and is now testing the waters with a wired stereo headset. They have a real winner on their hands with the BlueAnt Embrace headphones as you can see in my review.

Check out my full ZDNet Mobile Gadgeteer blog post for more detailed thoughts on the headphones.

A black leather carrying case is included with your BlueAnt Embrace headphones.

The earcups are covered in soft, supple leather material giving you excellent comfort. The earcup posts are also labeled with a L and R to ensure you put them on the right way.

The outside of the headphone earcup posts are black brushed aluminum. They look great and feel like they are very high quality.

You get two stereo cables in the box. The blue one has a remote and mic piece on it and should be tested first with your listening device. The blue cable allows you to take and make calls with iOS devices.

The remote control has volume up and down buttons and a middle action button. The action button is used with multiple presses to control calls and music.
