The company's VoiceMagic and AudioMagic chips essentially integrate all of the components--radios, analog-to-digital converters--needed for wireless communications on a single piece of silicon. Integration allows the company to get the price for a pair of its chips (one that receives and one that transmits) for $14 or less.
This prototype headset allowed CNET News.com's Michael Kanellos to get CD-quality sound about 100 feet from the source. There was also a wall and a corner between the headset and the source of the music, a notebook. The device can also be used as a VoIP headset. It will cost about $99.
