Los Angeles, CA (August 20, 2012) – MTV Geek! called it “simply a great idea!” when it was first unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this past January. Now consumers can see, and hear, for themselves as Boomphones officially launch August 28th, 2012 with their Phantom model – the world’s 1st headphones that can transform into a boombox with the push of a button. Boomphones are now available for pre-order exclusively online at www.boomphones.com.
Boomphones have the portable power and multifunctional appeal to revolutionize the way people listen to, and share music. Designed with four speakers – two on the inside and two on the outside – Boomphones are the ultimate two-in-one audio experience, perfect for traveling, parties, exercising and anything in-between. LED lights show which mode is in action: glowing white when Boomphones are internally amplified, red when the bomb icon is pressed to blast the external speakers in boombox mode.
Two audio cables are included, one with an integrated microphone, volume control and push-to-talk capability. Users can easily make and answer phone calls, listening privately or switching to speakerphone. For those who use their phones to listen to music, there’s no need to switch cables, to talk directly into the phone or to remove the headphones. Turn your Phantoms into a portable amp by plugging into your computer, electric guitar (with adapter), keyboard, beat machine, etc.
Available in Matte Black and Polished White, Boomphones use a built-in lithium battery that’s easily rechargeable through a mini-USB, providing 10 hours internal and 5 hours external use. Boomphones retail for $149.99, will officially launch on August 28th, and will be available online (www.boomphones.com), at Sportie LA and other retail outlets in the coming months.
With a mutual love for music, videogames and gadgets, visionary entrepreneur Ira Strasberg teamed with music industry professional Ohad Einbinder to co-found Boomphones. Strasberg and Einbinder then brought Mike Camello, partner and head of business development for Boomphones, on board from Anderson Merchandisers. Says Strasberg, “With Boomphones, our goal is to change the way people listen to, and share their music. They are a boombox… around your neck!”
