Remember the Motorola Hint? Well, this was called the first “hearable” device and Sony looks to be primed to unveil its own version of the in-ear Bluetooth accessory at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

According to Evan Blass, Sony will announce the “Smart Ear” Bluetooth-enabled earpiece on Monday. The details are sparse, but it’s expected the voice-activated wireless earbud will connect to your smartphone and enable you to initiate calls, commands, and possibly music playback.

    My mother has had hearing aids for years that are Bluetooth enabled, paired with her mobile phone. Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids are hardly revolutionary.
