SMS Audio seems to have been rather busy this month. We have already seen the Street by 50 over-the-ear collection refreshed with active noise control and the introduction of the SYNC by 50 portable Bluetooth speaker. And as of today SMS Audio has rolled out a new set of SYNC by 50 on-ear headphones with Bluetooth 4.0 aptX technology.

These are wireless headphones that feature 40mm drivers and SMS Audio has them available for pre-order as of today. With that in mind, the pre-orders are expected to begin shipping on August 22nd and they are priced at $230. They headphones are available in black and silver and bring features to include folding hinges and soft leather memory foam.

There is also passive noise cancellation along with onboard controls to play and pause, skip forward and back and also adjust the volume. Aside from the controls on the headphones themselves, there is also a detachable cable with 3-click in-line microphone for voice calling. But aside from simply using this cable for voice calls, it will also come in handy for times when the headphones run out of battery power.

Speaking of the battery, SMS Audio has said the SYNC by 50 on-ear headphones should be able to provide up to 12 hours of listening time. The headphones are also rechargeable by way of an included microUSB cable. Otherwise, similar to the other SMS Audio products, these headphones ship with a few goodies to help prolong the lifespan. Those making a purchase can expect to find a cleaning cloth and hard shell carrying case in the box.
