Social Headphones Enhance Music Sharing And Discovery
Muzik headphones let the wearer easily tweet or post to Facebook and the built-in accelerometer means they stop playing when they’re taken off.
Unlike typical audio gear, the “smart” Muzik headphones are meant to be used as a tool for sharing, experiencing and discovering music. The company, which launched this week, was founded by “disruptive innovator” Jason Hardi.
It is pioneering a new space called ‘Social Smartware,’ which describes the seamless connection of consumer electronic devices, content and social media platforms to make music instantly discoverable and shareable in an effortless way.
Muzik is launching a range of smart audio products later this year including the on-ear wireless headphone, which combine high-fidelity audio in a simple yet elegant design with capacitive touch controls.
