Lately, we’ve been talking a lot about headphones. So many manufacturers make them these days. How do you make something that stands out? A-Audio has put a trio of audio treats into the Icon Wireless Over-Ear Headphones.
This newly announced set packs in Three-Stage Listening Technology. That basically means that users can personalize their listening experience by choosing between Base Enhancer, Active Noise Cancellation and Audio modes.
Oh, and the Icon is also wireless. It has Bluetooth 4.0, so you can stream all of your tunes right to the headphones from any iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, as well as other compatible devices. That way, you won’t have to be tethered to one music source.
Inspired by classic auto and luxury timepiece craftsmanship, the Icon also has leather with diamond-quilted stitching on the headphone band, anti-vibration octagonal aluminum bezels on each ear cup, and built-in controls on the ear cup.
Perfect for travel, the Icon can fold up and even comes with its own carrying case. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery promises up to 12 hours of playtime on the go. If you need a little more, it comes with a 4-foot cable with 24k gold-plated contact, which boasts an optimum signal transfer.
A-Audio will start shipping the Icon Wireless Over-Ear Headphones in “Liquid Chrome and Matte Phantom Black” sometime this November. Each pair is priced at $379.
