Salt Lake City – April 2, 2014 – STREAMZ, the breakthrough smart headphones that eliminate the hassle of a separate music player by utilizing a built-in WiFi and Bluetooth Android Music Player, is thrilled to launch its Kickstarter campaign today.
From now until May 1, backers can pre-order their STREAMZ with up to 36GBs of built-in storage, a 48kHZ/16 bit Digital Analog Converter (DAC), and a microphone that supports Google® Voice activated commands such as: search for music, skip track, volume control, selection of locally stored music or online music services such as Pandora® or Spotify®, and much more. An Android App developer’s kit is also available in a Kickstarter bundle to encourage software developers to create unique new Apps for STREAMZ.
“When it comes to entertainment people want the best quality and they want it now” said STREAMZ CEO Douglas Kihm. “You no longer need to bother with a separate player since it’s all built inside. Many people don’t want the hassle of carrying, connecting, and draining the battery of their phone or music player. Now you can easily and instantly enjoy all of your high quality entertainment from any device with one simple-to-use pair of headphones.”
Most phones and mobile music players have sub-par DACs and amplifiers so listeners are often forced to compromise sound quality for convenience. For the first time ever; music lovers can enjoy pure, uncompressed high fidelity audio from absolutely anywhere with a headset that features a built-in music player, storage, DAC, amp, Bluetooth and WiFi. STREAMZ is the first headphone able to store and autonomously play 44 kHz/16 bit CD quality music in formats including FLAC, ALAC, WAV and music from the soon to be released PONO music store.
Audiophile’s will be able to purchase music directly from the STREAMZ MUSIC store. STREAMZ MUSIC currently contains an impressive catalogue of over 300,000 CD quality albums in 44kHz/16 bit FLAC, ALAC and WAV. Pledgers are even able to purchase up to $300 worth of STREAMZ MUSIC that will be preloaded on to their headphones. Backers will also be able to download or stream their purchased music from their own cloud based Google Drive account.
STREAMZ allows you to enjoy your favorite movie or TV show with unparalleled sound by using an optional Bluetooth audio transmitter (TRANZ). STREAMZ is also perfect for gaming, with audio so crystal clear and immersive that users feel as though they have been dropped right into the middle of the action. Along with its integrated keypad panel and voice control, users can use an Android or iOS smartphone App to search, browse and play music on STREAMZ.
Pre-orders for STREAMZ begin at $299 ($200 below expected MSRP) for the 4 GB Model. A 20 GB model is available for $349 and the ultimate 36GB plus accessories combo is available for $549 ($300 below expected MSRP). Pledgers can visit www.Kickstarter.com to pre-order their STREAMZ.
