NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wearable technology creator muzik (http://www.muzikofficial.com) announced today that the world's first, highly-anticipated smart and socially-connected wireless headphones are now available to the public for the first time. Following the product's initial debut in July 2013, muzik has since raised over $10 million in funding to help further build out the product's functionality and ultimately redefine what the term "smart headphone" means for consumers. Orders can now be made on the website and headphones will begin shipping in early December, ahead of the holiday season.
"We are so excited to announce that after two years of designing and production, we are now open for business," said muzik Founder Jason Hardi. "Our team has been in the lab for the last year refining a truly new listening and connecting platform for smart, sexy, wearable tech. This is just the beginning—the headphone will never be just for listening to music anymore."
The initial reveal and announcement of the product last year received major interest and support, breaking the mold for the world's first true smart headphone and receiving Innovation Awards from the Consumer Electronics Association at CES. After a year spent collecting feedback from users and partners, muzik went back to the lab to enhance the user experience with unparalleled sound and features. Over the past year, muzik collaborated with top engineers, music moguls, and industry leaders to collaborate further on bringing the world's first truly "smart" and intuitive headphone to market.
Carrying forth the company's vision of enriching the music experience, muzik's marquee product ventures where no other headphones have before. The headphones come with intuitive touch controls, high-definition audio, voice command, long-range wireless capabilities, motion sensors, one-touch phone answering and social-sharing—all controlled directly from the headset. muzik also developed an easy-to-use software development kit to enhance the user experience via third party apps developed specifically for its platform. As a result of its software-centric design, muzik can send updates, applications and new features to listeners as they are released—allowing the product to evolve over time, beyond the capabilities of traditional headphones.
Ergonomically designed for superior fit and comfort, the headphones also sport foldable design, aluminum construction and dense memory foam cushions for style and comfort, as well as studio-quality drivers to provide a true HD audio experience.
"With these headphones, our goal was to strike the perfect balance between intuitive technology, great design and superior sound quality," says Hardi. "We can't wait for people to hear and see what they've been missing."
muzik smart headphones are available now at www.muzikofficial.com for $299, with shipment before the holidays.
