It looks like Dr. Dre‘s Beats by Dre headphones might be getting some heavy competition soon. Earlier this week, 50 Cent introduced his Sleek by 50 Cent Platinum headphones that use military grade metals to provide wireless technology, one of the first of its kind. If you want to go into detail, the headphones offer:
“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, a customized internal amplifier.”
Of the headphones and new business move, 50 said: “I was fortunate to find Sleek, the technology they employ and their knowledge of how we hear music truly blew me away. It was a perfect match, I didn’t want to create another pair of loud headphones, I wanted to create headphones that offer top-level performance, style and new technology.”
