The high end headphones market is becoming a bit crowded, though that’s not entirely a bad thing as this will give users much more choices when shopping for that perfect set of headphones. The latest comes from A-Audio and it’s called the Icon Wireless. What sets this apart from others is that the company is labeling this as the world’s first wireless headphone with Three Stage Listening Technology. What this means is that the Icon Wireless allows you to choose between three distinct listening styles, Bass Enhancer, Active Noise Cancellation or Audio modes. This lets you enjoy your music in a variety of ways.
Along with Three Stage Listening Technology, the Icon Wireless also features Bluetooth 4.0, built in audio controls, a foldable design, and a rechargeable battery that should last about 12 hours between charges.
MIAMI – October 27, 2014 – A-Audio, a Miami-based audio company founded on the principles of innovation, quality, precision and craftsmanship, today announces the new Icon Wireless Over-Ear Headphones, the latest addition to the A-Audio family of premium headphones. Meticulously engineered to blend optimal sound quality, aesthetics and comfort, the Icon is the ultimate everyday wireless headphone that lets you experience studio quality sound with a cable or without. The A-Audio Icon is the first wireless headphone to offer Three-Stage Listening Technology™, which allows listeners to choose between Base Enhancer, Active Noise Cancellation and Audio modes. Much like a luxury sports car shifts gears at varying speeds, Three-Stage Listening Technology puts you in the driver’s seat to select the sound that best suits you and your music in the moment.

Building on the success of the flagship, award-winning Legacy headphones, the Icon features the freedom of Bluetooth 4.0 technology to connect wirelessly to mobile devices along with A-Audio’s signature aesthetic that turns functional elements into distinctive design features.
