The $299 headphones feature a built-in amplifier and are used by re-recording and production mixers, supervising sound editors, sound designers, musicians and music editors, the company said, including the teams on TV series “Westworld,” “Grey's Anatomy” and “NCIS.”
Blue also provided the following statement from award-winning writer, director and producer J.J. Abrams: “Blue are my go-to headphones for recording music. Their clarity, balance, presence and accuracy make them the perfect fit — which, by the way, they also are; they’re comfortable even after endless hours of use. I love ‘em!”
