Not much has changed about mP3 format since it came to around the turn of the 21st century. Certain aspects of the modern smart phone were even derived from this simple method of storing and playing digital audio files. But that’s all about to change; say hello to the first Internet of Things (Iot) smart headphones, Aivvy Q. Conceived by a team of designers spanning the globe, the all-in-one music player may just be the new future of portable music.

Imagine a device that streams endless, personalized music for up to 40 hours — without an internet connection.

Imagine a device that streams endless, personalized music for up to 40 hours — without an internet connection. “Intelligent Caching” lets Aivvy Q learn about your preferences with the aid of intuitive gesture controls on the built-in trackpad; just tap to flag the songs you like and swipe forward skip the ones you don’t. However, “the complexity of actually learning your music preferences is done on the Cloud so it doesn’t draw down battery life on your headphones…you’re free to enjoy what feels like a galaxy of music without an active internet connection, cords, or separate devices.” Efficiency is the key to this clever combination of current technological trends. It’s all contained in a comfortable, cord-free headset (available in white, brown, or black) with a built-in lithium-ion rechargeable battery, 32GB of storage, and a 40mm driver unit. And you know you’re getting the clearest possible sound thanks to a 5-band adjustable equalizer, 117 dB sensitivity, and 20-20,000 Hz frequency response. While the storage capacity of portable music continues to grow with the aid of internet radio apps like Pandora and Spotify, Aivvy Q changes the game by making millions of songs accessible no matter where you are. “The music never stops!..Even if you’re on a plane or going for a hike, the music will always be there.”
