These days hip-hop and headphones have become ubiquitous in the music industry. From Dr. Dre’s popular “Beats By Dre” – to Ludacris dabbling into the marketplace with his own signature headphones “Soul”. And while the aforementioned hip-hop brand’s ear-wear are getting a lot of attention, leave it to rap leader 50 Cent to corner the market and offer consumers something truly unique, and exclusive from all the rest. “Sync by 50″ is the new audio line that not only offers a sleeker — and more durable product than that of its competitors, but also offers a wireless device (yes I said wireless) so you’re not bogged down with endless wires catching on any and everything while you try to enjoy your favorite music. An innovative and small Kleer dongle about the size of a small matchbox is included. Insert, the dongle’s integral 3.5mm plug into your phone, iPod, or computer, and you’re guaranteed to get the same high sound quality you’d get with a cable.
While the audio craze has hip-hop headphones an unexpected boost to the economy and demographic, in a battle to create personalized signature products, oftentimes, they’re overpriced pieces of crap. And this is where Sync by 50 stands alone as the leading headphones I’ve experienced to date. What can’t be denied is the packaging. With a retail price of $399.00, you definitely feel apart of a private club because lets keep it real, not everyone will be able to be apart ‘Sync by 50′ due to the large price point.
The audio controls on the headphone allows for volume adjustments, and song selection. This feature allows you to scroll through your music collection with a blink of an eye [although the song switch functions didn’t work for me. #kanyeshrug.] However, the crisp audio sound blaring out Sync By 50 are music to my ears. The “thump” you receive from the bass is perfect. And will make for a perfect listening experience. With an eager hip-hop community pumping endless amounts of disposable income into the expressive and rebellious culture more so then any time in history, it’s clear consumers also want to hear today’s hip-hop music the best way possible. Sync By 50 is the next step in audio amplification that gets a certified A+ from Gyant on BET.
