50 Cent’s SMS Audio recently acquired KonoAudio, with the acquisition 50 is gearing up to reveal his complete line of new products, which include wired, wireless and earbud headphones, in the coming weeks.
50 Cent previously had a deal with Sleek Audio to produce and distribute a wireless hybrid headphone system, Sleek by 50, but that deal feel through last May.
As reported by Tech Crunch, 50 Cent’s headphones will debut in the coming weeks. As of now, no price has been disclosed, but they’ll probably follow the price point of Dr Dre’s Beats line, although it remains to be heard if 50 Cent’s headphones will feature the same sound quality.
50 Cent previously gave a statement on his new headphone line, as he said:
“I’m eager for my fans to hear my music the way it was intended – the way it was mastered in the studio. The acquisition of KonoAudio will enhance our ability to bring the absolute, highest-caliber audio products to the market.”
