Check out the best high-tech music gadgets at SXSW 2016
March 18, 2016 - Uncategorized
Even though the Interactive portion of South By Southwest now draws more attendees than the Music portion, the festival’s musical roots still resonate throughout its entire duration. For tech companies debuting their newest music gadgets, it makes sense that they come to SXSW to try to make a scene. Watch the video above to see the three coolest, never-before-seen music gadgets we got to play with while in Austin.
Sony N Neckband
Goodbye headphones, hello neckbands. Next-generation headphones will wrap around your neck, instead of going on your head—or at least, that’s what Sony intends. At Sony’s Future Lab, I got to try on the company’s “N” neckband prototype that plays music via Bluetooth. If you don’t want to distract people around you, you can also attach a special pair of earbuds that have an open design so they still don’t block out ambient sound around you. This is particularly helpful is you still want to have a conversation or hear if a car is headed your way.
