Beats by Dre, Sol Repbulic, SMS Audio -- you are paying for branding and celebrities. Status Audio gives you inspiring sound and great quality at a fraction of the price.

Status Audio (, an emerging manufacturer of consumer electronics, today announces the release of their flagship product, the Status Audio HD ONE Headphones.

The HD ONE headphones are, by their very nature, disruptive to the "status-quo" of today's headphone market. They contain no logos or branding, while maintaining the performance and features of headphones costing double, triple, and even quadruple their price.

The Status Audio HD ONE headphones were conceived with music-lovers in mind -- specifically those tired of paying a premium for celebrity endorsements and bloated advertising campaigns (

Priced aggressively at $40, Status Audio stands by their mantra that headphone consumers pay for "performance, and nothing else".

Coated in a rubberized "matte" finish, the HD ONE headphones are styled for those who prefer understated elegance to brash logos. They feature 40mm Titanium speaker drivers that are tuned to bring out the best in modern sound recordings -- deep concise bass, silky mid-range, and a crystallized high-end. The cable is detachable from the headphones, with an in-line microphone and 3-button remote for complete music and call control. The result is an exciting and dynamic listening experience.

The HD ONE headphones are lightweight and engineered in the popular "on-ear" folding design. They were rigorously tested to withstand breakage in the areas typical to this style of construction.

"We really just listened to consumers", notes Status Audio founder James Bertuzzi. "Product reviews, internet forums, you name it -- the sentiment towards these big headphone brands was often very negative, mostly in the realm of cost vs. performance. We knew if we made something in earnest, for the intelligent listener that doesn't follow the tide of established brands, it would be well-received".

The Status Audio HD ONE headphones are available in a limited quantity pre-order at They are available in 3 unique styles, at $40 a set.
