The official launch of SoundSights new Bluetooth headphone is not due until next spring. But it is making buzz online with its breakthrough feature, a smart headphone with built-in camera. SoundSight loaded in a 1080p camera which can record videos in 720p with six microphones, voice control and accelerometer. These new headphones are aided with a companion app for Android and iOS, allowing you to edit, trim and apply film look filters before you broadcast to any social media. There’s also no need to worry about having to tilt your head just to get a good angle on your shots, because the camera is strategically mounted to the outside of the ear cups which can rotate at 270 degrees to enable the user to manage his angles perfectly.There
Soundsight’s built -in battery life is only 4 hours if all the features of the headphones are activated, but it can go up to 18 hours when only noise cancellation is activated. A pretty small battery for such big features. But I’ve got to say I love the idea of video streaming while you are in a concert or live events. I think the concept is good but not enough to make people go crazy over a new wireless headphone with built-in camera. A lot of people were saying that the quality of the video might get compromised especially if you are constantly moving while you are making the video.
I never thought the possibility of having a camera in my headphones. I know it’s not impossible considering the technology we have today. But I’ve heard of spy sunglasses with built-in cams, spy watches with cameras and even pen. Just like any James bond movies I watched. But a headphone with a camera? Is it really necessary? Maybe it can be a delight for some, but at the price of $349 – $499. I think I would just stick to Skull Candy Aviator or audio technical ATH-M40fs Pro and let my smartphone handle all the snapshots and the video making.Cancel reply
