LAS VEGAS — Hi-Fun USA is at International CES to debut lines of Bluetooth accessories, portable speakers, iPhone and iPad add-ons, headphones and power cables from Italy-based design house Hi-Fun.

The company is also offering a line of touch-capacitive gloves in eight color combinations.

Also on display is Hi-Fun’s Hi-Hat and Hi-Head lines of knit stocking caps with removable stereo speakers and a cable with phone controls and microphone for hands-free calling.

Other products debuting at the show include Hi-Edo Bluetooth headsets, Hi-Freedom portable Bluetooth audio speakers, Hi-Cablelighting illuminated USB cables, Hi-Ring and Hi-Ringmini universal Bluetooth handsets for smartphones, Hi-Zip zipper-style ear buds, and Hi-String ear buds with a cable sheathed in shoelace fabric.

The company also has a variety of device cases and skins.
