You have to give Nokia credit—not only do they appear to be getting to release some innovative and boundary pushing phones, they’re creating a great ecosystem to go with it.
Such is the case with the super-expensive Purity Pro Wireless headphones made in conjunction with Monster (the company behind Beats). The headset features NFC pairing, Bluetooth streaming, 24-hour battery life for calls and music and is made from polycarbonate plastic (like the Lumia) for sturdiness.
In the video above, we also get to see how there are no buttons on the headphones, instead when you unfold them they just click on. What’s more, the built in active noise-cancelling feature kicks on when it picks up ambient audio in the room with once again, no input from the user. To turn them off you simply fold up the headphones and if your battery dies, just plug in the 3.5mm headset jack and they will still work.
We’re still a little iffy on the pricetag but we won’t deny we’re looking to pick these up. Over-the-ear headphones while a bit dorky looking are hands down the best for audio fidelity and more importantly, wearing for long durations (such as flights). Throw in the design and the rest of the “Lumia 920” package like a wireless charging stand, the JBL PlayUp speaker and those cool colors and we think we know where our money is going.
The Purity Pro headphones will be released in Q4 for €299.
