Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
With 30 years of high-end audio technology innovation under the company’s belt, Velodyne Acoustics (http://www.velodyne.com) is poised to make its debut at SXSW – in style.
The Silicon Valley company -- widely recognized as the leading manufacturer of high-performance, low distortion powered subwoofers -- has expanded its line of technically innovative in-ear and over-ear audio products with interchangeable custom-designed skins that enable audiophiles to personalize the look of their headphones.
At SXSW, Velodyne will showcase its audio product line in Stand #726, at The Trade Show; Stand #401, at the Gear Show; and at Maggie Mae’s, site of “The Austin Jump-Off 2014,” set for Wednesday, March 12, from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., in the heart of Austin’s entertainment district. Those stopping by any of the Velodyne venues can get their badge QR code scanned, which will automatically enter the code into an exclusive SXSW drawing. Winners will be posted at http://www.velodyne.com.
Velodyne’s on-ear vLeve and vFree headphones are available with designer skins that enable music lovers to engage in the art of personalization, matching the style to the sound. vLeve and its optional skins – 35 and counting – will be on display during SXSW. Created by Marta Hall, international artist and Velodyne president, designer accessory skins – silicon-based and flexible, with clean snapping edges -- start at $39. In addition to making a fashion statement, skins offer extra protection for headphones.
Bringing the creative spirit to Velodyne, Hall suggests that the skins are what wearable technology is all about. “The Velodyne vLeve and vFree are ideal for those who value both high-quality sound and high style,” Hall said. “Our designer skins add a dramatic new dimension to the product – they’re a means for consumers to personalize their headphones while engaging with artists.”
Select Velodyne headphones and skins are available at Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, Velodyne.com, and at 20 Airport Wireless and 15 Techshowcase stores located in 18 airports nationwide.
Velodyne gear on display in Austin will include:
“Velodyne’s wireless Wi-Q subwoofers put the boom anywhere you want in a room by eliminating awkward cables that limit optimal placement of a subwoofer and maximize bass performance,” said Hall. “You’ll get incredible output, stunning impact and deep-bass performance no matter where you place it.”
