Fender is certainly no stranger to big sound, as the company has been making top-quality electric guitars for decades. Yesterday, the company announced that it will venture into the headphones space with a series of five new wired in-ear models.
The company will soon debut models of headphones ranging from $99 to $499. But instead of developing their own, the company acquired Aurisonics, a high-end American manufacturer that catered to serious audiophiles and professional musicians. Each of the new headphones has a titanium driver, and the higher-end models are 3D-printed using “Digital Hybrid Technology,” meaning they use the data from thousands of ears to get headphones that fit 95 percent of people properly. Rendered models shown came in bronze, red, blue, silver, and clear. More details on Fender’s new venture aren’t available, but hopefully we’ll hear more about what sort of response these new headphones will have soon. [Via]
