Lola from Blue are Headphones with Nothing to Hide

Blue LogoHeadphones may seem simple enough on the outside. But to discerning ears, a set of headphones’ ability to accurately reproduce sound is crucial to the enjoyment of the material. Sure, a cheap set of earbuds might be fun for consuming audio during a bus or train trip. But when you really want to feel the audio you’re listening to, you go to that trusty set of big headphones that sound great. Many companies have produced high-end headphones over the years and microphone manufacturer Blue is the latest to enter this space.

John Maier from Blue stopped by the booth to talk with Jamie and Nick. John showed off the new Blue Lola headphones. Lola headphones are ergonomically designed to have a great feel. They use a custom 50mm driver to provide full audio performance. The headphones’ physical design was inspired by a Formula One racing car’s suspension so the ear cups stay level regardless of the size/shape of the wearer’s cranium. Blue’s Lola headphones are expected to retail for $249.

John Mayer joins us on the TPN CES Live show to talk about the newest initiative of Blue Microphones – Adding headphones to the line. John states they are the last company in the genre that didn’t have the right strategy or approach to headphones.

Blue Microphones doesn’t have a product at this point, but they are currently unrolling the idea in the next few months.

“Essentially we are saying expensive high-end headphones that sound great,” says Mayer, “only kinda work (from the old days) when we weren’t listing through mobile devices. When you plug into mobile devices, there is not enough power — you cannot power the $600 pair of headphones.  So today’s options take the low output and crank it up without a lot of sound quality. Its about getting the sound high. We are doing interesting things around that and bringing high-end headphones and solving that problem.”

Blue Microphones feels they have a new, interesting concept where they can start getting into the headphone market. They have over a million users of Blue Microphones out there. They are talking about Mo-Fi, or mobile hi-fidelity.
