Name the world's biggest manufacturer of digital music players. Apple, right? Nope, pub quizzers, thanks to the continued march of the mobile phone, it's actually Nokia. Trouble is, all those MP3-spinning mobiles tend to come with pretty crummy headsets. But, finally, Nokia's giving mobile music fans the other kind of 'phones. First up is the HS-81, which sports Sennheiser pads and a round-the-back-of-the-head style neck band. Calls (remember those?) can be answered using the on-chord button. For those who prefer their music with one hand to their ear and the other to a turntable, the fold-out HS-62 has full-size cans with 40mm stereo speakers.For cranking it up even more there's also a new range of loudspeakers. The Mini MD-4 with built-in radio weighs a meagre 130g and folds to fit in a pocket. Less portable but with meatier bass and more power are the MD-3s. Expect them to be piercing the quiet of a train carriage near you soon.
