Blue Microphones launches Mo-Fi headphones to bring Hi-Fi quality audio to mobile devices



Blue Microphones, makers of consumer and professional grade sound equipment, has launched its Mo-Fi headphones, which it says will be the first product to deliver truly high fidelity audio via a mobile device.

Announced today at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, the Mo-Fi units promise to revolutionize mobile music playback and ultimately aim to raise the bar on the quality (not just the volume) of the sound when using headphones. “The masses have come to widely accept compromises in their headphones, settling for mobility instead of high fidelity, raw volume instead of powerful accuracy and loud bass over good bass… What if we liberated our music from over-hyped lo-fi to true mobile hi-fi? We can,” the company said in a statement.

However, with few other details at the time of writing, we’re not sure exactly how it plans to achieve this improved audio quality in a different way to other other high-end headphone offerings. Needless to say though, the Mo-Fi units will work with all kinds of devices that would work with normal headphones. They’re due to go on sale this spring, according to the announcement.
