LOS ANGELES, Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Muzik™, creators of the first smart and connected headphone whose platform enhances user experiences and connects culture through award-winning technology, today announced Chris Paul as a strategic investor. Paul, nine-time All-Star and two-time Olympic gold medalist, has joined the Muzik family alongside various disruptors from the worlds of sports, music and entertainment.
