Headphones Control Music with Swipes Instead of Buttons

Hammacher Schlemmer is selling a pair of $150 Bluetooth headphones that connect wirelessly to your smartphone, tablet or Bluetooth-equipped music player and let you control music playback and volume by swiping your finger along one of the earpieces.

Swipe up or down to increase or decrease the volume; swipe left or right to jump between tracks. The headphones also sport a built-in microphone for hands-free calls and battery life is promised to be up to 10 hours of listening from a one-hour charge.

At $150, they’re not exactly cheap, and it’d be interesting to know whether the price reflects sound quality, touch technology or (hopefully) both.
