Now, when the Consumer Electronics Show is all over, we get in touch with some mesmerizing gadgets that we want to share with you. X2 Hybrid Headphones are one of them.ARTICLE CONTINUED BELOW
The most impressing feature of the headphones is its sound. What makes them unique is that they actually double as either a pair of headphones, or a pair of desktop speakers. The photo reveals that the outside of the earcups feature an exposed speaker cone.
The headphones run off a built-in rechargeable battery that’s good for about 4 hours of use on a 1 hour charge, provided they are in In speaker mode.
X2’s appear a little heavier than your standard over-the-ear headphones. But apparently the sound isn’t too shabby so it might be worth the tradeoff for the added functionality.
Price & Availability
The X2 Hybrid Headphones are slated to be available in May for around $165.
