50 Cent was at CES this week signing autographs for fans while Stormtroopers stood by on guard. He was there to announce his new line of SMS Audio headphones that are inspired by his love for Star Wars.
The new on-ear headphones will feature Star Wars character branding and will include Stormtrooper, Rebel Alliance, Boba Fett, and Imperial models. The limited edition STREET line is the same that 50 Cent uses in his studio and contains passive noise cancelation, enhanced bass and custom 40mm drivers. As someone who owns a pair of 50's STREET headphones I can attest to their tough design, portability, and amazing sound quality.
Each of the headphones will come with a Star Wars-branded three-click microphone on a removable cable, certificate of authenticity, and some Star Wars goodies. The Star Wars STREET headphones will be available in late spring or early summer from SMSAudio.com and will retail for $179.95.
I'm sure you know about the SMS Audio partnership with Feeding America, but in case you don't... 50 Cent and SMS Audio have partnered with Feeding America and have committed to provide 1 million meals a year to Feeding America on behalf of local food banks.
