SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones

It's official, 50 Cent's SMS Audio and Intel are partnering on a line of fitness-focused headphones, dubbed the SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones.

Powered by Intel's new fitness-monitoring biometric technology, the headphones merge  premium audio quality with the latest fitness-tracking tech to deliver the best experience for working out.

The SMS Audio BioSport integrates biometric sensors in a custom heart rate monitor to collect fitness data and achieve peak physical performance. A patented ear-hook design ensures a comfortable fit, while an energy-harvesting audio jack removes the need for extra batteries or chargers.

A built-in optical sensor continuously measures heart rate during intense exercise, states of relaxation and every moment in between, while dynamically removing noise signals caused by body motion and ambient light. It also syncs with popular fitness app RunKeeper, helping track your heart rate, pace, distance, elevation and calorie burn.

The SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones releases this fall. Stay tuned for further info.
