Fanny Wang Headphones enters the high fashion headphone market

Over the recent year, and perhaps to some degree down to the emergence of the iPod and iPhone as style icons, the headphone market has become much more fashion focused, with brands like Beats by Dre and SkullCandy bringing something different to the market. The latest entrant in the design and fashion headphone market is Fanny Wang Headphones.

Fanny Wang Headphones is aiming their products at the premium fashion headphone market, delivering stylish headphones with a focus on high quality sound, putting them in direct competition with the likes of Beats by Dre, Bowers & Wilkins, and Bose among others.

From what we can see so far the Fanny Wang headphones look stylish, and knowing that they have used the same sound engineer that produced the great audio on the Beats by Dr Dre range of headphones, we expect them to sound great as well. We look forward to receiving a test model for review.

One of the new features of the Fanny Wang headphones is the addition of an extra headphone jack on the wire, allowing you to connect a second pair of headphones to share the music with a friend.

December 10, 2010, San Francisco, Ca. – Fanny Wang Headphone Co., the newest line of ultra premium headphones to hit the U.S. market, will launch this month with a private tastemakers party at the W Hotel in San Francisco. Fanny Wang takes audio accessories to the next level by incorporating superior sound quality with high-fashion style. The headphones are available for pre-order for $149.95 for on-ear models at www.FannyWang.com.

In the last year, fashion brands are outpacing technology brands in the headphone industry, led by Beats by Dr. Dre and Skullcandy. Fanny Wang is the newest entrant in this market, and sets itself apart by providing a superior sound, eye-catching style and competitive pricing – the best of fashion and technology for audio.

“The same sound engineer who designed the Beats by Dr. Dre acoustics tackled the Fanny Wang collection. We challenged him to create a superior sound that complements urban hip hop, but also provides range to satisfy other music genres,” said David Adam, VP of Product Development for Fanny Wang. “Audiophiles will be blown away by the rich, smooth sound, and heads will turn when people check out the new Fanny Wang headphones.”

Every element of the Fanny Wang headphones have been designed to create the premiere mobile music listening experience, compatible with audio players such as Apple’s iPod, iPhone and iPad. Each model includes a built-in DuoJack (patent pending) inline splitter, allowing friends to share the listening experience.

Fanny Wang’s On-Ear design features 40mm titanium drivers for smooth and balanced sound, with luxurious cushion for premium comfort during long wear. Future models in Q1 2011 will include an on-ear iPhone model and over ear noise-canceling models.

The Fanny Wang Headphones collapse for ease of travel with a sturdy metal hinge and are available in bold red, ink black or crisp white. Each design comes with a three-year warranty.

    The acoustics on these are top notch. Simply put the Wangs Look, feel, and sound better. The kicker to me is that one retails for $199 and the other $149…. Can’t wait to see what the noise canceling joints sound like,cause they can only get better. If your looking at sound, durability, style and price this is not a hard choice, Wangs!
