At MWC Sony announced a new accessory called the Smart Headset. Well calling it ‘new’ may be stretching the truth a bit. The Smart Headset is in fact no different to the LiveSound accessory that Sony (Ericsson) launched last year. Both the design and functionality is exactly the same. The reason why Sony launched it under a new name is that this particular headset is targeted towards the new Xperia NXT mobiles such as the Xperia S and Xperia P.

As we discussed earlier this week, the 2012 range of Xperia handsets use a different 3.5mm standard which means the older Sony Ericsson headsets (including the LiveSound headset) will not work properly on the new 2012 Xperia mobiles. The Smart Headset is CTIA-compatible that means it will not only work with the new Xperia range but a whole host of other handsets as evidenced by the product page.

The Smart Headset has a LiveKey control that allows you to access certain applications on your phone by a push of the button. It is constructed from solid metal housing and has a flat tangle-free wire along with a new generation of 6mm speaker drivers and a mic that combines great quality sound in smaller package.
