Welcome to the party, pal!
The Symphony 1 has the exact type of features that you’d expect from a new pair of high-end headphones, including active noise cancellation and Bluetooth. Having that wireless technology means that you can stream music directly to the headphones, all without being tethered to an external audio source.
Also worth noting is that the Symphony 1 has the type of immersive, audiophile-grade performance that Definitive Technology is known for. To achieve that type of sound, the Symphony 1 has packed in 50mm drivers and a digital-analog converter (DAC) that can handle music from any digital source. It also has on-ear buttons for easy control and built-in microphones for making and taking calls.
Designed for use at home or on the go, the Symphony 1 has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that promises up to 10 hours of playtime while in noise-cancellation mode. While you’re drowning out surrounding sounds, you’ll also look pretty cool, since the Symphony 1 has a sleek design with dark leather and a machined aluminum construction.
“Symphony 1 embodies the precision and purposeful engineering that Definitive Technology is known for,” said Joel Sietsema, director of brand management at Definitive Technology. “It delivers the very best noise-cancelling experience available with its over-ear seal, closed-back design, and four dedicated noise-cancellation microphones. The Symphony 1 immediately drowns out surrounding noise so listeners can fully immerse themselves in remarkable sound. Whether traveling on a plane or enjoying a favorite track in the office, Symphony 1 delivers a uniquely exhilarating experience.”
Definitive Technology started selling the Symphony 1 in February, with an MSRP of $399. (Available on Amazon)
