For many of us, headphones have become such a huge part of our everyday experience. They are now far more than simply a way to listen to media. On top of listening to music and podcasts on the go (or when your spouse is asleep next to you), headphones have become a way to express our personal style. My students and athletes sport headphones in many colors and styles; each of them truly reflecting that individual’s personality. In fact, I often think the appearance, not the audio quality, of the headphones is the reason they choose one pair over another.
As an old guy, most of these stylish options do not fit my style. What I need is something retro but stylish. Oh, and I still want superior audio quality. I-MEGO just might be able to deliver on my requirements with their new Throne series. (And for those not interested in retro-style, the Walker Jr. promises to provide some style coupled with great audio quality.) I-MEGO has long been successful in Europe and Asia and will soon release products in the US. Read on to find out more.
Both I-MEGO’s THRONE and Walker Junior headphones feature the brand’s characteristic stellar sound provided by two high performance 40mm drivers. Each also places a premium on style and comfort with genuine leather and memory foam for long listening sessions. For added convenience, The THRONE and Walker Junior headphones include soft carrying pouches as well as adapters to accommodate any audio resource, from synthesizers to airplane armrests.
THRONE: With a look unmatched by any other audio accessory on the market, these eye-catching over-ear headphones have a retro style that suits urban royalty. The THRONE headphones deliver excellent audio that complements any musical identity, from heavy beats to classical crescendos. The THRONE Gold are geared towards big bass for rock, R&B, or hip hop. The THRONE Poison, styled with muted purple and chrome, were built for stand out vocals and acoustics that suit classical or new age music. Additionally, the THRONE headphones include a one-button music control with microphone that allows the listener to take calls or control the music.
Walker Junior: Built for the listener on the go, the Walker Junior Headphones are compact, lightweight and comfortable. Featuring a pivoting headband, these over-ear headphones flex to all of your traveling needs – literally. These noise cancelling headphones fold down to accommodate even the smallest purse, backpack, or luggage. Equipped with a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up and erases any outside noise such as traffic and air conditioning systems, the headphones are engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise.
Both the THRONE and Walker Junior headphones are now available at Amazon.com. The THRONE headphones retail for $129.99 and the Walker Junior are $139.99.
