To help celebrate May the Fourth, SMS Audio will be releasing its Second Edition Star Wars Wired Headphones. Snatch up Chewbacca, Darth Vader, R2-D2, Tie Fighter or collect them all. I’m going to have to go with Darth Vader on this one. I love the sleek look and the design of the ear caps showing a piece of his suit.
These durable headphones can fold at the hinges, which makes traveling and storing easier. Its on-ear cushions are made of memory foam (yes, like the bed) and are encased in leather. The soft cushions, combined with the oval-shape to match the shape of the ear, provide all-day comfort. Expect studio-mastered sound “from a galaxy far, far away.” The 40mm drivers deliver rich, clear sound quality, without distortions. I’ve been looking for strong headphones with great sound. I can be a little destructive when it comes to headphones (I’ve gone through four sets of ear buds in the past year), so these give me hope.
Pre-order your headphones now (and get a free t-shirt) for $179.95, shipping is scheduled for May 18. Along with your headphones, you will receive a Star Wars embossed case, an audio cable with 3-click mic, a soft-touch cleaning cloth, a 5″x7″ poster, a sticker, an Owner’s Manual and a Certificate of Authenticity. The headphones look great, and all the extra goodies for that price is a deal. The on-ear aspect makes me a little nervous, since I’m used to ear buds, but I would definitely give these a shot.
