Now that the smartphone has pretty much conquered the world, I guess it’s time that we upgrade everything else to “smart” status: our homes, appliances, cars, and our headphones. Yep. It’s time for smart headphones. Muzik One is the “smartphone of headphones” according to the Muzik website. It has a touch control panel to pause, play, skip tracks, and answer calls and four programmable Hot Keys (the dimples on the earpieces shown above). The keys may be programmed via the Muzik Connect iOS app (Android app coming soon) to integrate apps like Twitter, Facebook, Spotify, and IFTTT. Thus, by simply tapping on a Hot Key you can start your favorite playlist (if you programmed the Hot Key to Spotify) or by tapping on another, you can control the lights in your house (if you programmed it to IFTTT). The Muzik One headphones are “high-definition audio” Bluetooth headphones with a 50 foot range and will play for up to 30 hours on one charge of the battery. In addition, they have dual microphones for phone calls and voice control and use passive noise-isolation technology. When purchased, they come with swappable memory foam ear cushions (over-ear and on-ear cushions), a carrying case, a four foot long 3.5 mm audio cable, and a micro-USB charging cable. The Muzik One headphones are $299 and available in black, silver, and champagne colors from Amazon.
