Fashion Tech company, Ashley Chloe Inc, announced the official launch of its flagship wearable Bluetooth headphones, Helix Cuff. According to the company, Helix Cuff is for both form and functionality. It responds to voice commands and can activate Siri. It sits like a bracelet on your hand when not in use.
The Helix Cuff features aptX technology for CD-like stereo audio quality, and cVc technology to increase voice quality and reduce background noise. Its smart multipoint connectivity enables simultaneous connectivity to two devices.
“The Helix Cuff was designed to combine performance with style and convenience, making it the perfect solution for the iPhone 7 and a fantastic holiday gift for those who value both fashion and function,” said the company in a post. It has also won a Red Dor Product Design Award, and a CES Innovation Award in 2016.
The headphones feature Bluetooth 4.1 and wireless connects to your device within 30 feet. It gives up to three hours of music/call time with a single charge.
The company claims to have designers and engineers from companies like Nokia, Google/Nest, and GoPro.
According to the company, Helix Cuff is the world’s first wearable with extractable Bluetooth headphones on your wrist. It was successfully funded on Kickstarter, and was awarded “Kickstarter Staff Pick” and got 250 per cent of the funding it initially sought out for. Nearly 2,000 early adopters in more than 150 countries have received the device.
