Not one to let HTC have all the fun with Beats headphones, it seems that Nokia is teaming up with Monster for upcoming accessories. You may be familiar with Beats by Dr Dre (Studio line a fan by hipster folks :p) or even Lady Gaga’s Heartbeats headphones, both from Monster Cable.
Hopefully Nokia can make some more up to date, youthful/fashionable designs for their headphones. I loved the Nokia BH-905(i) but they oddly felt a little on the formal/corporate side. I guess with that price tag that’s what you would want to expect. The cups were a little too small, with I found to both impede it aesthetically and in performance (letting sound leak out). I guess, professional folks don’t want to look like DJs or 90s kids.
Nokia Purity HD Stereo Headsets – Hmm…that doesn’t really roll off the tongue. This was something I was mulling over some days ago thinking about all these people with massive white beats headphones. Beats is a great brand (with a great design). One syllable. What’s the point in mentioning Stereo? Are we from the 70s? HD
Other possible sound related names?
- Ultrasound (Nokia Ultrasound – though baby scans might be the wrong association)
- Sonic Boom
