FELTaudio has announced the unveiling of their REWIND and PULSE modular Bluetooth audio systems at CES 2013. These interchangeable, docking audio products literally clamp on to your iPhone 5 or iPad 2/3/4 so your Bluetooth speaker (the PULSE) or headphones (REWIND) are always available. The interchangeable speaker and earbuds attach to the FELTaudio cases for iPhone or iPad, giving you a one-piece solution for carrying your music and audio gear together.
With such a nostalgically retro name (raise your hand if you remember the phrase “Be kind, rewind”), the REWIND headphones have virtually nothing else old school about them. These in-ear Bluetooth earbuds come in a cassette (put your hand down if you don’t remember those), which is designed to dock with the FELTAudio case on your iDevice. If you hand is still up and you pine for acid wash jeans, teased hair, or the phrase “Holy Cow,” these might just be the headphones for you.
The cassette holds the earbuds, the Bluetooth circuitry, and the 4-hour rechargeable battery; the convenience of docking your headphones and iPhone/iPad mean never leaving the house without all your music gear. The earbuds come with the flat, linguine-style cable which retracts into the cassette for easy and tangle-free cable management when on the go. Control buttons located on the side of the cassette provide volume, playback, and call answering functionality, while an inline microphone lets you go from chatting to rocking. The REWIND headphones (and FELTaudio’s cases) will be available in ash gray, black out, or snow crash white.
Eschewing nostalgia, the PULSE Bluetooth speaker provides up to eight hours of wireless music or handsfree calling. The PULSE docks on the back of FELTaudio’s iPhone/iPad cases, just like its earbud brothers the REWIND, but the built-in clip provides you the option to stand the PULSE up on a table for conference calls or clip it to a seatbelt/sun visor for handsfree conversations on the road. Volume and playback controls are located on the side of the PULSE, allowing you to control the music without digging out your phone/tablet.
The whole FELTaudio lineup is available in the ash gray, black out, or snow crash white color choices, including the PULSE speaker.
