At CES 2017, new consumer audio brand Meters Music kicks off the roll-out of its range of home audio devices with the launch of the OV-1 headphones. The OV-1s feature “a high-quality and exquisitely engineered design with a dash of studio cool, via their unique, fully- functioning VU meters, together with a sound performance designed by the team – from parent company Ashdown Engineering – who make musical instrument amplifiers for many of the world’s biggest bands.”
The OV-1s use a dynamic ANC (Active Noise Cancelling). They feature custom designed 40mm dome drivers, they also boast the company’s patented VU meters, which react in real-time to the sound level of the music being played. This allows parents to monitor how loud their child is listening, helping to keep their growing ears safe from excessive volume… or if you’re an adult who likes it loud, you can happily throw caution to the wind and ‘rock out’.
