dualBEATS is a pair of high fidelity over-the-ear headphones that can act as normal headphones for private listening, as well as an audible speaker so that you can share your music with others.
dualBEATS is claimed to feature custom vented memory foam padding that forms an airtight seal to block out external noise, while internal drivers deliver high-resolution audio. And with just the push of a button, you can turn your headphones into powerful built-in amplified speakers for external listening pleasure. According to the manufacturer, this means that dualBEATS can help you experience movies and music the way the artists intended to deliver it, and to deliver a state of the art listening experience.
dualBEATS headphones are claimed to use an USB-rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can provide hours of play time on a single charge, as well as onboard volume control to ensure your music can’t be heard by anyone else. And when you’re finished using your lightweight and portable dualBEATS headphones, the company claims they can be easily stored in the included travel bag.
