They have a built-in microphone and integrated Bluetooth volume, music player function, and call connect/disconnect controls. Additional features include earcups that fold and swivel for ease of carrying and storage. The BT-300ANC comes with a detachable 47-inch long standard audio cable, a USB charging cable, and a carrying case. It is covered by a 12-month warranty.
Plug typeThe type of connection at the end of the audio cord, which will be plugged into the source component. Most have 1/8-inch standard (3-contact) "mini" jacks that fit portable devices. Models intended for use with newer iPod, iPhone, and some Blackberry smartphones, that have integrated microphones, audio player controls, and call connect/disconnect controls use a 1/8-inch 4-conductor mini jack.
