Step aside, Bluetooth, as Koss has just unveiled a new line of headphones that stream music wirelessly over Wi-Fi. The new headphone line is called Striva, and they access audio channels delivered from the Internet that you organized and choose using the MyKoss.com dashboard interface. In addition, you can also use any device that has a headphone port. You just plug in the CAP (content access point) and the headphones can then tune into music from devices like smartphones, tablets, etc.
To start, there'll be two Striva models on the market--the over-ear Striva Pro ($450 USD,) and the in-ear Striva Tap ($500,) both of which include touch-sensitive gesture-based technology that lets you switch channels and manage volume by using swipes and taps. Check out a video explaining it all below.
It seems we can never find earbuds that are comfortable. Koss thinks it has the solution with their new CC_01. Turn a metal screw at the back of them and you can adjust them to fit your unique aural shape. We’re not sure how that works exactly, but we do like the concept of shape-shifting earphones. While Koss usually offers their products for very little funds, the CC-01 buds will set you back about $150.00 this March.
