Altec Lansing Unveils The DVR DJ-Style Headphones


Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be Bassnectar looking out into his sea of Bassheads, headbanging in perfect synchronization? Or Above & Beyond as they watch their audience frozen in anticipating awe for the post “Push the Button” explosion? Altec Lansing wants to facilitate the capturing of this artist-perspective experience with the release of DVR DJ-Style Headphones, the first of its kind with a built-in DVR camera for hands-free recording.

Live shows are all about making a connection whether it be with other listeners, the music, or the artist themselves, and these DVR headphones will take us one step closer to creating that true 360-degree music experience by allowing real-time streams of the DJ’s perspective to be shared with the larger audience. Not limited to concert settings, as many producers communicate with their fans via tutorial videos, studio sessions, and tease videos, these headphones will be a integral tool for producers to easily create and provide material to listeners.

Available in late Q2 of this year, the DVR headphones will start at $199.99 and include a 1080P/30fps DVR camera embedded in one ear cup, Wi-Fi capabilities, 8GB of internal memory, and a micro SDHV card port for up to 32GBs of external storage.

Other features will include:

  • A built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery with up to seven hours of battery life
  • An integral microphone with wind cancellation and song navigation/telephony buttons
  • TTS for voice activation and spoken caller ID by name, enabling the headphones to double as a personal listening device via a paired smartphone
  • Foldable construction for easy portability
  • Carrying case
