Blue announces Mo-Fi headphones

Blue Microphones has released Mo-Fi, a headphone that features a built-in 240-milliwatt amplifier matched to 50mm drivers.

Mo-Fi lets you choose three amp settings – On, On+, and Off. When switched to On, Mo-Fi activates the amp, On+ engages the amp’s analogue low-frequency enhancement circuit, and Off puts Mo-Fi in passive mode, for connecting to high-output studio gear.

Instead of using a fixed spring-loaded headband structure, Blue invented a multi-jointed headband that provides comfort and adjustability for a variety of head shapes and sizes. The ear cups stay parallel at all times.

For height adjustment, Mo-Fi’s pivoting-arm design allows for a range of motion. Blue incorporated a headband adjustment knob that allows you to dial-in the pressure and tightness.

The rechargeable battery, charged via micro USB, allows you 12-14 hours of playtime. The headphones automatically turn off to save power when they have been removed. If the battery runs out, Mo-Fi will continue to play in the Off setting.

Mo-Fi (MSRP $349.99) is available now at Guitar Center, Musician’s Friend, Sweetwater, and Amazon, and is coming soon to retailers worldwide.
