Who? Angus Lam, Marketing, The Audio Session
What? The Audio Session Debut Blue Label Bluetooth headphone
When available? September 2017
How much? £199
Description: The Debut Blue Label Bluetooth headphone offers dual (50mm and 30mm) dynamic drivers, both with Neodymium magnet-equipped motor systems. With an eye toward maximising sound quality the headphone features support for CSR8675 and aptX HD Bluetooth CODECs and also supports NFC pairing for greater all-around ease of use. But perhaps the Debut Blue Label headphone’s most striking feature is a whopping 30 hours of playing time per charge, which just might be a record of some kind. In short, a fully charged Debut Blue Label should be able to keep playing for all but the very longest of transcontinental flights (and in many cases will have enough power in reserve to keep playing for your return flight).
