Westlake Village, CA (August 26, 2014)—Blue Microphones has released its new Mo-Fi headphone, intended for both professional and personal use.
“When studio monitors transitioned from passive to active, everyone benefitted—and now we’re bringing that innovation to headphones,” said John Maier, CEO of Blue.
Mo-Fi’s built-in 240 milliwatt amplifier is matched to premium 50mm drivers, aiming to deliver the performance of custom-tuned, high-end studio monitors. Mo-Fi includes three amp settings— On, On+, and Off. When switched to On, Mo-Fi activates the amp, while On+ engages the amp’s analog low-frequency enhancement circuit to intensify bass. Off puts Mo-Fi in passive mode, for connecting to high-output studio gear.
“To design Mo-Fi, we began by studying how and where people make and enjoy music,” said Mitch Witten, VP of Product at Blue Microphones. “We set out to completely reimagine the construction, comfort and fit, without any preconceived notions about what headphones are ‘supposed’ to look like. The result feels less like a headphone, and more like a high-quality instrument you can wear.”
