Onkyo announces MHP-A1 wireless headphones


Onkyo's certainly be a fan of all things wireless, so it should be no surprise that the company is turning out yet another pair of cordless headphones, the MHP-A1s (not to be confused with the MHP-AV1s). This new set looks to be pretty comparable to those AV1s from last year, with Dolby Digital and DTS support and a range of inputs including optical digital, coaxial digital, RCA, and a 3.5mm stereo mini-plug. Just as importantly, the new phones also up things in the style department, looking more like something you'd actually want to keep in your living room rather than hide in a closet. Also like the AV1s (and plenty of other wireless headphones), the A1s use the crowded 2.4GHz frequency which should give you a range of about 30 meters (just under 100 feet), but could also be cause for or subject to interference depending on where you use them. Look for these to drop in Japan September 22nd for ¥25,200 ($220US), and here, well, eventually (probably).
