NEW YORK — 808 Audio, a brand of Voxx International, unveiled something rare in the headphones category: Bluetooth DJ headphones.
Noted Ian Geise, senior VP of 808 Audio, “As a casual listener, DJ or aspiring artist, you are given two buckets to choose from: cheap, affordable headphones or very expensive solutions that deliver quality but put a big burden on the budget. We have provided a value solution giving music fans a product that does not sacrifice performance features or function.”
The Performer headphones, designed by pro DJs and sound engineers, feature built-in Bluetooth with 15 hours of battery life, 40mm drivers, a flexible steel construction with leather ear cups, and a sweat-resistant headband. The ear cups can rotate 90 degrees for single-ear use.
Suggested retail is $99.99. The company will also offer a non-Bluetooth version for $79.99.
Both will be offered in a variety of colors and finishes, and both include detachable cables with in-line mics and remotes.
