The team behind BOSEbuildis excited to share today's launch of BOSEbuildHeadphones. The team is at the Bay Area Maker Faire for the product's official launch where 100,000 visitors are expected to participate in the three-day event.
Similar in spirit to the BOSEbuild Speaker Cube, this new member of the BOSEbuildfamily will take children on a journey to discover how their world works. The BOSEbuildheadphones guide you through an engaging assembly process using a beautifully designed (and free) iOS app - BOSEbuildListen. However, the fun (and learning) doesn't stop when assembly is complete.
The BOSEbuild headphones are fully functional Bluetooth headphones, designed for kids ages 8-18. The free companion app (iOS-only) provides games and activities to explore educational concepts, including sound waves, microphones, hearing and sound perception. The headphones are boxed as component pieces, allowing users to assemble and customize their product, and the companion app guides them through this assembly process. The end result of all this exploration and discovery is a set of durable, high-performance Bluetooth headphones designed specifically for kids. They are comfortable, provide Bose-quality sound and employ Smart Volume Limiting to promote safer listening for kids.
There are 17 activities on the app, including games, educational videos, hands-on experiments, and more. There is even an augmented reality experience where kids can see how the little speakers in headphones move air to create sound.
BOSEbuildHeadphones are only available in the U.S. and Canada and will be sold onbuild.bose.com, through Amazon and few select resellers.
The BOSEbuild Headphones will be available June 15 and retail for $149. They will be available to employees in the US and Canada this summer.
