Have any of you guys seen it ? No idea if it's been released already as I couldn't find it here.

Any sources, or opinions would be great.

Yes they do now thanks, this would be a very great thing!
Instead of worrying whether the BT headphones will be good enough, you can now use your own pair of headphones on a BT unit
I think I'll be getting this one for sure!

Any news about about the release date/price?

Yes, but they're all from Hong Kong... i don't trust those sellers, that's why I asked for the one you bought yours from

As for a "review", i need just a few simple things:

- How long does the battery last
- How long does it take to charge it
- Does NFC connectivity work without problems
- Does it work with other headphones attached to it
- Have you noticed any lags/stutterting during playback ?
- What's the actual range it works with ?

Cheers

Barely have it for 12h for now I can only answer:
- Does it work with other headphones attached to it
Yup, I use my Brainwavz M1

I will post a review in a week or something. Should be enough time to really test it out.
