BeeWi Wins CES Innovation Award for Wireless Headphones
Users can stream music directly from any mobile device to a hi-fi system, using BeeWi's smart headphone as sort of a wireless gateway.BeeWi, which makes connected smart toys (such as helicopters, cars and robots), and lifestyle audio and home automation products, on Jan. 6 won the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show Innovations Design and Engineering award for its new BBH300 smart wireless headphone. With the company's patented docking station, a user can stream music via Bluetooth or WiFi directly from any mobile device to a hi-fi system, using BeeWi's smart headphone as sort of a wireless gateway. Users then can listen to playlists stored on a mobile phone or tablet wirelessly on the hi-fi system, while charging the headphone. The BBH300 can either be paired wirelessly using Bluetooth or connected with a traditional audio jack cable, which is included. The BBH300 is a lightweight, foldable headphone with padded cushions and an integrated microphone. Operated using a tactile interface, the BBH300 features a battery life of 18 hours—including 80 hours on standby mode, BeeWi said.
"We are honored to receive this prestigious award today. The BBH300 is all about convenience and comfort, from its minimalist design to its unique and innovative multi-mode functions," said Thierry Dechatre, CEO and founder of Marseilles, France-based BeeWi.
