Smart Self-Contained Headphones

Vinci Headphones Play Music Without Connecting to Other Devices

— November 16, 2016 — Tech
The new Vinci headphones not only combine all the best features of most state-of-the-art devices available today, but also up the ante by cutting a reliance on external devices altogether. The headphones essentially take the place of consumers' smartphones, offering a host of intelligent features alongside high-quality sound for their primary purpose: playing music.

The most notable aspect of the Vinci headphones is that they don't need to connect to a phone or MP3 player in order to play music. They are completely wireless, with all the processing technology hidden in the device's two ear coverings. The headphones can both contain music locally and stream music via Wi-Fi or data.

Vinci's processor makes it more than just a music device. The smart headphones can also act as a virtual assistant, similar to Amazon's Alexa or Apple's Siri.
Trend Themes
1. Self-contained Headphones - This trend presents the opportunity for innovation in creating headphones that are independent of external devices.
2. Wireless Sound Systems - The reliance on cables and wires can be eliminated by creating sound systems that operate wirelessly.
3. Smart Music Devices - Incorporating AI technology can enable music devices to perform multiple functions beyond just playing music.
Industry Implications
1. Consumer Electronics - This sector presents an opportunity for disruptive innovation in creating independent sound systems and smart music devices.
2. Music Streaming Platforms - Adopting wireless headphones can be a game changer in music streaming, positioning companies as leaders in the industry.
3. Virtual Assistant Services - Incorporating voice assistants into headphones can be a disruptive innovation in the virtual assistant services sector.
