Sure, iPhones, iPads and iPods are incredible, but they have one noticeable shortcoming - if you want to listen to audio but don't want to use earbuds or headphones, your options are limited.

Sure, iPhones, iPads and iPods are incredible, but they have one noticeable shortcoming - if you want to listen to audio but don't want to use earbuds or headphones, your options are limited.

The built-in speakers on those gadgets are hardly the answer. Bluetooth gives you workable options on the iPhone 3G, iPod Touch and iPad, but they're not nearly as versatile as iSkin's Cerulean Bluetooth accessories.

Purchasing both the Cerulean TX and RX gives you a wireless stereo Bluetooth transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX) that works with the newest and oldest products in the iPod, iPhone or iPad lines.

If your Apple gadget has Bluetooth capability built in, merely connect the Cerulean receiver to a docking speaker made for those gadgets and you'll have a wireless connection effective up to 33 feet away.

On the other hand, if your Apple product isn't Bluetooth-capable, the Cerulean TX plugs into the docking plug of that older device (first-gen iPhones, for example) and adds the Bluetooth feature.

For those with a stereo system that isn't Bluetooth-capable, the Cerulean receiver comes with cables that connect to either an auxiliary or an RCA jack input so that stereo can accept a Bluetooth signal.

Cerulean also offers a wireless stereo Bluetooth headset (model F1, $100) for folks who are OK listening to tunes through an earpiece but want to get rid of the wires.

These Bluetooth accessories are lightweight, good looking and very easy to set up and use.
