Boomphones Phantom on preorder in the US

| August 8, 2012 | 2 Comments

Remember those headphones with built-in loudspeakers we saw back April? Well they are now up for pre-order in the US.┬áThe Phantom is the company’s first “headphone speakers” and they are available in white or black for $149.

If you pre-order, you will get free shipping, a free Boomphones t-shirt, and early access: your headphones will arrive a week before their official release!

The Phantom’s looks resemble Beats by Dre Studio and given their rampant success it is probably a good design decision – especially considering the market they are catering to (the younger generation). Headphones with built-in speakers is a cool concept and I think it has a good chance to catch on – I just think Boomphones needs to add a few more models to their lineup before that will happen.

We have all experienced the alternative ways to conveniently share music out loud, so it will be interesting to see how the Boomphones stack up. I am sure they won’t match the sound quality of the Jawbone Jambox┬ábut they will undoubtedly be multiple steps up from your puny built-in cell phone speaker. For casual-listening consumers in the market for a do-it-all product (or parents looking for a cool Christmas gift for their kids), the Boomphones could be an excellent choice.
