Adcom recently announced its plan to enter into lifestyle and mobile accessories products in India. Couple of months back they have launched an attractive and stylish over the air headphone the Luminosa.
As you know there are three types of wireless headphones, “True Wireless” like Apple Air Pods, then there are headphones that share a wire, running around the back of your neck or over your head, that links right ear to left. These will connect wirelessly to your smartphone or speaker, normally over Bluetooth. And finally there are ‘hybrid’ headphones, which can connect over Bluetooth, but also come with a standard headphone cable. These are almost always over-ear headphones, and they make up a large proportion of the market. There’s basically no real difference between the sound quality, so it’s really just about which design you find most comfortable and which suits your aesthetic.
This is a hybrid headphone, so the Luminosa can be connected via an AUX cable as well, which works even when there is no charge left in the headphone. The most attractive part of this headphone is its unique LED which is designed on the stretchable ear-cups, to make you stand out. The headset comes with a built-in Mic, LEDs, Deep Bass and Passive Noise Cancellation features. It is compatible with all smartphones – iPhone & Android
