The BH-121 comes with noise-blocking in-ear headphones that connect to the device via a 3.5mm headphone jack. The headset connects to smartphone either via Bluetooth or NFC. There’s also an indicator LED that shows the amount of battery left in the device.

The BH-121 supports advanced Bluetooth features like HFP/HSP and/or A2DP/AVRCP profiles (which are profiles found on the Nokia Lumia 1520, Lumia 1320, Lumia 1020, Lumia 925, 625, 525 and the Asha 503 and 501.
