If you've always wanted your headphones to stand out a little in a sea of white wires, then Meizu's illuminated headphones may be for you. Called Halo, the Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX buds features a 1.5 meter cable (including 0.3m to wrap its ears) that lights and flashes in bright red or blue neon for an average of 5 hours (with a brightness of 50 percent) . Otherwise, they will last 15 hours if you turn off the light. The rechargeable battery at the end of the cable takes approximately 1.5 hours to charge.
Halo uses a Corning light diffusing fiber called Fibrance, which is made of flexible glass that can be bent and curved. These Meizu headphones are not the first with an illuminating cable built around Fibrance. Glow also has a pair that lights up in red, green or blue for $ 139.
Halo has a slider switch that allows you to turn the lights on and off, and also buttons for volume control, Bluetooth pairing and Call functions. The headphones are also synchronized with a smartphone application that allows you to control things like brightness and lighting modes. The Halo comes with a carrying case, several different sized ear tips for testing and a charging cable.
The headphones are available for 999 yuan (around $ 158), and go on sale at the end of April in red or blue. It is not yet known if they will be available in the US. UU Or other markets outside of China.
