BeeWi's newly announced Ghost Bee is sure to wake up some old "In Soviet Russia" memes by being one of the few pairs of wireless headphones that can stream music back to stereos. A moderately sized pair of on-ear cans, the Ghose Bee features a panel with capacitive buttons that let you control music and phone calls. It features a 3.5 mm jack that can work both ways (receive input, or give output), and a micro-USB connector that, aside from letting it juice up, lets it plug into an included base-station, which lets you stream relay music from your smartphone to other stereo speakers. Slated for February, the Ghost Bee is expected to be priced at $180.
BeeWi, the leading European wireless accessory manufacturer, unveils at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 (CES) its latest range of innovative wireless audio devices, including the revolutionary Ghost Bee, the ultimate headphone that lets users wirelessly connect any Bluetooth device (smartphones, tablets, PCs, Macs...) to any home theater speakers.
Ghost Bee's unique design and unmatched elegance is the world's only wireless/wired headphone with a touch panel on the surface of the ear piece, a docking station, and 3 modes in 1:
- Wireless: connect to any Bluetooth device (supporting stereo music and hands-free communications)
- Wired mode: enables to use Ghost Bee with any audio source
- Hi-Fi docking station: listen to your music on your home theater speakers, while simultaneously charging the headphones, and switch automatically between the speakers and Ghost Bee
"With Ghost Bee, consumers have finally the freedom to stream their music and calls from any Bluetooth device (iOS, Android, Windows...) to wherever they like, their speakers or headphone, while making it easy, fun and affordable," explains Thierry Dechatre, the founder of BeeWi.
