If you ever happened to want a pair of studio-quality headphones that featured an integrated, rotatable camera, the SOUNDSIGHT is your answer.
“Think Beats meets Instagram and GoPro and you have SOUNDSIGHT headphones,” claimed DJ Sashi. The 1080p camera can be controlled via Bluetooth and a smartphone app, available for iOS or Android. The app lets you join video clips (with the option to add Instagram-like filters) with music without the need for a computer. There’s even the option to stream live video to the web via the headphones and your smartphone. The headphones themselves play audio through Bluetooth, USB or a standard 3.5mm audio cable. “The image quality, dynamic range, color depth and raw ability of SOUNDSIGHT Headphones make the product an ideal device for organically capturing point of view motion pictures.” Only time will tell whether or not they’re practical or worth the promo price of $349 ($499 when they’re officially on sale next year). You’ll find some images below as well as the press release. For even more information, visit SOUNDSIGHT’s website.
