Morgan Hill, CA (PRWEB) December 31, 2013
Velodyne, manufacturer of the new vQuiet® premium noise-cancelling headphones and a complete line-up of high-quality audio products, today announced it has signed Oakland Raiders punter Marquette King to its vSeen® social media Brand Ambassador program.
King will join a growing list of notables from the worlds of entertainment and sports. Already featured on Velodyne’s Celebrity Spotlight are brand ambassadors Ashanti Floyd of the band Symphony Crack; Finish Ticket, a Northern California indie band that recently sold out San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall; and The Mowgli’s, an 8-piece alternative band from Southern California recently featured at the Austin City Music Festival in the Texas capital. Other Velodyne brand ambassadors include Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Brandon Flowers and Baltimore Ravens safety Matt Elam and The Happyness, an emerging band from the U.K. Additional celebrities, athletes, musicians and others will be announced in the weeks and months ahead.
Velodyne headphones are prized by style-conscious celebrities and fashionistas, professional athletes psyching up for the big game and musicians who rely on them to achieve peak performance on stage or in the recording studio. Increasingly, they also are showing up on or in some pretty famous ears in photos and videos posted to the likes of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
“Social media offers new ways for brands and fans to interact with celebrities, athletes, fashion models and emerging musical and other artists who choose Velodyne headphones to help them do what they do – better, or with greater enjoyment,” said Marta Hall, Velodyne President and a well-known sculpture artist in her own right. “The vSeen campaign leverages social media to bring visibility to the famous or almost-famous who use Velodyne-branded audio products and creates new ways to interact with their fans – and introduce fans to Velodyne headphones.”
