Headset can stream over Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, store music

Streamz Media has launched its first set of headphones that offers the ability to stream audio from various sources. The self-titled Streamz can connect to hotspots and other mobile devices to receive audio over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0, while its onboard 4GB of storage can be extended by a 32GB microSD card in order to hold a user's music without connecting to another device.



Using cushioned over-ear cups, the Streamz uses two 50mm dynamic speakers with 3W vibration drivers and 160mW dynamic amps. Using an Android-based built-in media player with a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, it includes a 48kHz 16-bit DAC, a microphone input jack, and controls for volume, mode, and function adjustable on the left earset, with the right covering basic audio playback controls. Weighing in at 17.5 ounces, it also includes a built-in lithium polymer rechargeable battery, though the capacity or expected run time is unknown.

Expected to ship in March 2014, the Streamz headphones will be priced at $549 in the United States.
