New Star Wars headphones are on the way from 50 Cent. Stay tuned for more information. In the mean time here’s the press release from Lucasfilm.
“I’ve been a fan of Star Wars since I was a kid, so working with Lucasfilm to create this line of headphones was a really cool experience,” said 50 Cent, CEO of SMS Audio. “Star Wars has a huge following of dedicated fans and I’m excited to welcome them into the SMS Audio family.”
Available for a limited time, the Star Wars-branded STREET by 50 On-Ear Wired headphones mirror the aesthetic quality, professional sound and functionality as the rest of the SMS Audio STREET by 50 On-Ear Wired headphone line. They are equipped with passive noise cancellation technology, enhanced bass and custom 40mm drivers that provide users with the same high-fidelity audio 50 Cent hears in the studio.
Lightweight, yet durable, the Star Wars on-ear headphones are extremely portable due to their foldable design and tangle-free, detachable cord. The OVALFIT™ leather memory foam ear cushions and adjustable headband provide users with superior comfort when listing to music anywhere, anytime. Each pair will include a unique 3D emblem on the ear caps depicting its respective character or theme, including:
Star Wars™ Limited Edition Stormtrooper™ Street by 50™ On-Ear Wired Headphone – Echoing the Stormtroopers’ high-gloss white apparel, each pair sports the iconic Stormtrooper helmet on its ear-piece emblem. The black, plush leather ear cushions and padded headband have white stitching and provide stylish comfort.
Star Wars™ Limited Edition Rebel Alliance™ Street by 50™ On-Ear Wired Headphone – Join Luke Skywalker in the fight to restore the ‘Old Republic’ with these orange and metal-gray headphones. Similar to Skywalker’s memorable orange flight suit and marked with the Rebel Alliance’s “Starbird” symbol, the Rebel Alliance-branded headsets feature a gray headband, orange ear caps and white leather ear cushions.
Star Wars™ Limited Edition Boba Fett™ Street by 50™ On-Ear Wired Headphone – Emulating Fett’s subdued color palette found in his armor, the Boba Fett headphones are a deep forest green complete with rust-red ear caps and ivory leather ear cushions. Each pair sports the bounty hunter’s chest symbol and Mandalorian insignia.
Star Wars™ Limited Edition Imperial™ Street by 50™ On-Ear Wired Headphone – Made in Imperial black to match its villain, Darth Vader™, the Imperial SMS Audio headphones have a high-shine finish with black leather cushions and red stitching. Also in black, the ear caps show off the emblem of the Galactic Empire in red.
The headphones will come with a Star Wars-branded removable cable with three-click microphone, soft touch cleaning cloth and certificate of authenticity, along with a limited edition Star Wars poster and stickers. The Star Wars STREET by 50 On-Ear Wired headphones will be available for purchase at SMSAudio.com in Q2 2014 for MSRP $179.95.
