Audiophiles now have a "bold" new way to enjoy their music untethered: the vBold over-ear Bluetooth headphones from Velodyne Acoustics.

The headphones feature aptX coding for high sound quality, Bluetooth v2.1 connectivity with a range of greater than 30 feet, near field communications technology, and on-ear controls. Also featured are a high-quality mic for calls and online video gaming, and a built-in rechargeable battery with 10-plus hours of talk and listening time.

vBold wireless headphones are compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or any Bluetooth-compatible device. Included accessories enable charging (1.5 hours recharge time), and the headphones can also be plugged into a listening device using the direct-connect audio cable.

Available in matte black or satin silver, the vBold headphones retail for $349. Find them online at Amazon and Best Buy.
