Nokia's Purity HD stereo headset by Monster goes Pro, gains Bluetooth, NFC and noise cancellation

If Nokia doesn’t show off at least one banana-hued Lumia smartphone come September 5th, we’re going to be extremely confused. Say howdy to the Pro-monikered followup to its corded Purity HD stereo headset by Monster, which gains Bluetooth (no word on what version), NFC for pairing and active noise cancellation. Similar to its recently revealed PlayUp speaker, the company’s teasing the the Purity HD Pro as an audio accessory that’ll “perfectly match your Lumia” in a choice of black, white, red and yellow. The Pro is essentially identical to its predecessor, but now the folding earcups also serve as a pseudo-on/off switch for its anc functionality for the unit itself. As you might expect, all that tech and Monster branding will cost ya a spendy €299 (about $376) — nearly as much as Parrot’s Zik by Starck.

The cans will reach store shelves near this year’s close.
