Engadget gave us a sneak peak earlier but yesterday, Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson officially released his line of headphones Sleek By 50 Cent at a press conference at CES in Las Vegas.
They are the first headphones ever to offer ‘Wireless Hybrid’ technology with military-grade metals. More specifically, the Sleek by 50 Cent Platinum headphones utilize Kleer lossless wireless technology, with a 60 foot range and a micro-USB rechargeable battery. If you run out of juice, there’s a detachable mic cable that can be jacked in for continued listening. The cans themselves house a pair of 50mm dynamic drivers and a customized internal amplifier.
Sleek by 50 will be available worldwide by Q2 of this year and will be priced at about $350.
UPDATE: Now with video from the event, below.
