There is a new product coming to you soon, it’s the SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones! As you know SMS Audio LLC is a premier audio headphone and accessory brand from Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, who teamed up with Intel Corporation for the development of the first heart-pounding personal audio system that will converge lifestyle and technology for an exceptional fitness experience.
With today’s announcement, Intel and SMS Audio are merging lifestyle requirements with technology innovation to enhance the fitness experience. The SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones powered by Intel will extend the recently launched SMS Audio Sport Collection and harness advanced technology features to deliver high-quality audio while gathering actionable data on fitness progress.
The SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones will be powered by Intel to deliver an exceptional experience while working out without sacrificing audio quality for those who demand more from life and more from music. The headphones will integrate biometric sensors in a custom heart rate monitor in-ear headphone to empower athletes to collect fitness data and achieve peak physical performance. A patented ear-hook design ensures a comfortable fit while an energy-harvesting audio jack removes the need for extra batteries or chargers.
They will also have a built-in optical sensor that will continuously measure your heart rate during intense exercise, states of relaxation, and every moment in between – all while dynamically removing noise signals caused by body motion and ambient light.
- One-Device Workout Accessory for Ultimate Comfort: A jointly developed heart rate monitor in-ear headphone will put an end to the less convenient, less comfortable chest strap-style monitor while delivering reliable and consistent heart rate monitoring to enable peak performance and progress tracking.
- Tuned-in Fitness: Listen to music as a way to stay motivated and reach optimal levels of fitness while gathering useful data about the user’s health.
- No Batteries or Charging Required: Eliminate the need to charge the headphones with a 3.5 mm gold-plated audio jack that powers the biometric monitoring capabilities so users have the freedom of on-the-go power.
- Sweat and Water Resistant: No need to worry about working out too hard or in the rain – the SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones are IPX4 rated for protection against sweat and resistance to water.
- Sync with RunKeeper: To help track your heart rate, pace, distance, elevation and calorie burn, the SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones will be compatible with popular mainstream fitness app RunKeeper, with additional application support planned in the future. RunKeeper support will enable users to plan fitness routines and track progress – pushing enthusiasts to reach peak performance.
- Accessories: The headphones will come with a tangle-free cord with an in-line microphone, neoprene carrying case, and three sizes of ear gels and hooks.
You will be able to purchase the SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear headphones from the SMSAudio.com website later this year. Pricing is yet unknown, but will be announced later this year. They will come in a variety of colors; including but not limited to blue, yellow, pink, and grey.
