Alexa Goes Wireless: 66 Audio unveils PRO Voice wireless headphones with Alexa voice recognition

Freedom at the command of your voice

CULVER CITY, Calif., Dec. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 66 Audio, a pioneer in wireless consumer audio technology, today unveiled the all-new PRO Voice Bluetooth Wireless Headphones with built-in Amazon Alexa voice recognition. A breakthrough in how we communicate with our digital world, PRO Voice takes Alexa outside the home to deliver a fluid voice experience anywhere you have an internet connection.

With breakthrough innovations including 125 feet of wireless range, 40 hours of continuous playback, crystal clear HD sound, the MotionControl companion app and a durable, sporty design, PRO Voice is a wireless headphone experience that raises the bar.

Access tens of millions of songs through Prime Music, play games and even order a pizza - now, you simply 'just ask' - even during music playback. The power of Amazon Alexa in a wireless headphone promises to deliver an entirely new user experience. PRO Voice features 66 Audio's new ActiveVoice™ recognition technology along with the MotionControl smart app for iOS and Android, where users can customize numerous headphone features.

At launch, music fans in the US, UK, Canada and Germany can ask Alexa to play their favorite tracks from Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora, and TuneIn. Alexa voice control for Spotify will be available following launch. PRO Voice also features voice-control technology such as play, pause, next track, volume up and down so you never have to glance at your smartphone again to interact with your music.

PRO Voice customers will be eligible to receive a 3-month trial to Amazon Music Unlimited for only $0.99 per month, where they can enjoy tens of millions of tracks and playlists on demand.

"Tens of millions of tracks at the sound of your voice is really a new era in how we experience our music," said 66 Audio Founder and CEO Kristian Kay. "Amazon opened the door with Alexa to empower millions of customers to interact with the future of voice technology, we're here to make it portable."

PRO Voice empowers users to enjoy all the great things they love about Alexa – setting timers, checking the weather, listening to news and traffic reports, and controlling their entire world of connected smart-home devices - wherever they are, on the go.

The technology that powers PRO Voice was developed over the course of two years to enable a fluid on-the-go user experience even during music playback. Multiple systems work in parallel to provide an always-on voice recognition experience, algorithmically designed for ambient noise environments and music playback while seamlessly interfacing with AVS and the MotionControl app. A precisely tuned microphone also enables crystal clear voice calls with CVC active noise cancellation to ensure crisp conversations no matter the ambient environment.

The MotionControl App for iOS and Android
Newly updated for PRO Voice and Amazon Alexa, MotionControl now features a gorgeous new music interface with album artwork, full playback controls and the Alexa Cards interface. Now, when you ask Alexa for the weather, a Wikipedia fact or your to do list, MotionControl will display these cards at-a-glance.

In addition, MotionControl introduces updates to many innovative features that continue to deliver a simply great headphone experience:

  • An all-new TrueEQ™ hardware-based equalizer to dial in the perfect sound, directly on hardware.
  • Last Locations and Find My Headphones technology so you never lose your headphones again.
  • Real-time battery status and LED control features
  • Alexa privacy controls and localization.

Pure Technology
66 Audio continues to push the limits of wireless performance with a new iteration of their 3DRF™ antenna technology to deliver wireless Bluetooth range of 125 feet with newer devices. 40 hours of continuous music playback is made possible with an advanced lithium polymer cell with the help of a USB Type-C connector for easy connectivity. The freedom to roam for hours without disconnecting from your device is here today.

Remarkable Sound
Meticulously tuned, massive 36mm stereo drivers deliver a punch when you need them most all while being stylish, lightweight and portable.

PRO Voice features 66 Audio's proprietary "66 SoundEngine DSP" technology to enable the highest quality sound leveraging world class codecs from Qualcomm aptX and AAC. Zero distortion, crystal clear sound and leading audio processing combine for an immersive soundstage to deliver music as it was intended.

Thoughtful Design
