Lola from Blue are Headphones with Nothing to Hide



Blue LogoHeadphones may seem simple enough on the outside. But to discerning ears, a set of headphones’ ability to accurately reproduce sound is crucial to the enjoyment of the material. Sure, a cheap set of earbuds might be fun for consuming audio during a bus or train trip. But when you really want to feel the audio you’re listening to, you go to that trusty set of big headphones that sound great. Many companies have produced high-end headphones over the years and microphone manufacturer Blue is the latest to enter this space.

John Maier from Blue stopped by the booth to talk with Jamie and Nick. John showed off the new Blue Lola headphones. Lola headphones are ergonomically designed to have a great feel. They use a custom 50mm driver to provide full audio performance. The headphones’ physical design was inspired by a Formula One racing car’s suspension so the ear cups stay level regardless of the size/shape of the wearer’s cranium. Blue’s Lola headphones are expected to retail for $249.

Blue Releases Mo-Fi Headphones



Mo-Fi labelBlue has been a leading innovator in microphone technology and design for 20 years. They have something new for music lovers to enjoy. Their Mo-Fi headphones were designed to bridge the gap between mobility and high-fidelity.

The Mo-Fi is the first headphone that combines a built in audiophile amplifier and ultra-premium drivers to deliver true high-fidelity performance. It can do it on every device including A/V receivers, laptops, tablets and phones. It delivers the power and quality of a hi-fi system inside the headphones.

Mo-Fi’s unparalleled listening experience is made possible by its powered design – the first of its kind. The built in audiophile amplifier offers six times more power than typical mobile devices. It is perfectly matched to ultra-premium 50mm hi-fi drivers. This enables Mo-Fi to handle rapid peaks, driving beats, and dramatic musical crescendos in a way you’ve never heard before.

Users of Mo-Fi can choose from three amp settings: On, On+, and Off. The On setting activates the amp to deliver powerful, detailed, sound. The On+ setting engages the amp’s analog low-frequency enhancement circuit. It delivers incredibly deep and smooth bass. The Off setting puts Mo-Fi in passive mode. It allows people to connect Mo-Fi to a home A/V receiver that already has high-output amplification for headphones.

Mo-Fi was also designed with comfort in mind. It has a multi-jointed headband that provides total adjustability for a variety of head shapes and sizes. The earcups are shaped like ears and stay parallel at all times. This creates the best seal for solid bass response, improved isolation, and reduction in sound bleed. Mo-Fi also has a headband adjustment knob that allows listeners to dial-in the perfect pressure and tightness.

These very unique headphones have a rechargeable battery that can be charged via micro USB. It can do 12 to 14 hours of actual play time. Mo-Fi even can detect when the headphones have been removed and it will automatically turn off of to save power. If the battery runs out Mo-Fi will continue to play in the Off setting.
