We generally don’t knock a press release for being short and sweet, but this one regarding 50-cent’s wireless headphones just seems straight up lazy.
Dismay aside, these audio cans can receive audio wirelessly from up to 50 feet from the source unit. Get it, 50-feet, 50-cent. Your cringing can now ensue, ours did.
40mm drivers should provide thumping bass, but where we think they might fall a bit short, at least for the audiophile crowd, is that their wireless signal is capped at 16-bit. Sorry HD audio enthusiasts, you’ll just have to wait on 50-cent to invest another round of R&D funding before you can be bathed in high bit rate audio. However, they do boast passive noise cancellation, which is just another way of saying that don’t have active noise cancellation.
Nonetheless, memory foam ear pads should mean long lasting comfort and on ear controls for bass, treble and volume mean you won’t have to commute to the source of the audio.
Included is a transmitter that can beam tunes to up to 4 pairs of these headphones. They’re also tossing in a hard shell carrying case, a wired mic cable, an airplane adapter and a USB/AC plug.
No word on a price, but expect the SYNC headphones to roll out this holiday for what we guess will be about $150-200.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
