Blue –the company best known for its microphones, but in the past few years, the company has launched some headphones as well, many of them featured a built-in amplifier for the best quality sound. The company is keeping that tradition going with the announcement of its Blue Ella Wireless Headphone, which offers both a built-in amplifier and noise cancelling.
“Ella is a planar magnetic headphone with a twist –it delivers both the superior detail and musical impact,” Blue Microphones CEO John Maier said in a statement. “Typical planer magnetic headphones sacrifice impact to achieve higher levels of details, leaving a sound that’s more clinical than emotional. And the traditional dynamic headphones are great at delivering the power and punch that most of us are used to but cannot transmit the detail planar does. Ella is the first headphone that combines the best of both worlds to offer both punch and precision.”
Ella maximizes the potential of your source material – from audiophile re-masters to 180 gram vinyl to music on your smartphone. The headphone’s 50mm × 50mm drivers feature a planar membrane that’s less than 50 microns thin and self-tensioned for fast response and extreme accuracy. Ella is the first headphone which offers planar magnetic sound quality with the convenience of a built-in 250mW audiophile amplifier.
