Dillinger Labs’ Helix wireless headphones are now shipping and available for order exclusively through the SKAA Store (MSRP: $189.99 USD/free shipping). They feature Eleven Engineering’s SKAA technology, which was designed to provide wireless audio in environments laden with heavy Wi-Fi and Bluetooth traffic.
“We receive so many requests for wireless headphones that can be used at home, in the car, on the plane, basically, anywhere,” explained Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering executive vice president – sales and marketing. “Well, one technology covers all these scenarios and we believe in maximizing use cases and not being forced to have different equipment for each and every application. The new SKAA-enabled Dillinger Labs Helix wireless headphones are ideal for any and all of these uses. If these are not the best sounding wireless headphones you’ve ever owned, return them for your money back with no questions asked.”
The new Helix wireless headphones are built for Dillinger Labs by a top Japanese brand. With a typical 10-hour battery life, they are ideal for long listening sessions such as in Studio, Live Sound, as well as for flights, train, and car commutes, home theater and gaming scenarios, and more. They also come with an adjustable headband for listener comfort and its high-quality ear cups effectively keep out external noise.
“I spend a lot of time on planes, and I never fail to notice at least one couple on a flight using their tablet to watch a movie,” Whitehead said. “And they have one set of wired headphones leaning into each other with one using the left bud and the other using the right bud. Flying nowadays is miserable enough, why make it worse with only one channel of audio for the movie you are watching? With SKAA, up to four sets of headphones can be used at once.”
Whitehead noted that Bluetooth headphones are basically rendered useless for watching video because of that technology’s latency issues. Bluetooth is also limited to one user.
SKAA transmitters work with iOS and Android mobile devices, Mac and Windows computers, televisions, and just about any product with a line output or a headphone jack. SKAA is also available as a built-in technology not requiring an external transmitter in purpose-designed partner products, which are featured at SKAA.com. In environments with heavy Wi-Fi and Bluetooth traffic, SKAA is designed to navigate through these hostile environments with best-in-class reliability. SKAA also allows for uninterrupted audio signals that are delivered with the highest sound quality to all speakers without the latency that is inherent in other wireless solutions.
