SMS Audio has recently launched their sports collection. But now they are going to introduce the SMS Audio’s BioSport In-Ear Headphones. These headphones are a collaboration between Intel and SMS Audio, which was founded by the rapper 50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson.
50 Cent’s aim was to create headphones with top-quality audio, style, fit and functionality. A Headphone is a headphone? Not these ones. The SMS Audio BioSport Headphones have sensors to measure the heart rate of the user. There is no need to wear a chest strap or a wearable and there are no batteries required. The headphones take their energy from a smartphone or MP3 player through an audio jack. Open the box, put them in your ears, plug them in your phone and it just works.
“With the introduction of the SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones powered by Intel, we’re now the first to provide this level of integrated, seamless and helpful biometric information to inspire customers to advance their fitness experiences.” said Brian M. Nohe, president of SMS Audio, in a press release.
To us this is a product we are now really waiting on to be released. It is easy to use and creates an extra value due to heart rate monitoring. Waiting to see what the pairing of SMS Audio and Intel will bring in the future.
From what we know today, the headphones will work together with the popular fitness app RunKeeper for Android and iOS. It will be water resisdent, it will be available in the fourth quarter this year and the price should be around $150 according to the German newspaper Handelsblatt(approx. €112). JafJaf!
