Inexpensive headphones will become more technologically advanced, and high-tech ones – cheaper thanks to the merger of two innovative “headphone” firms Skullcandy and Bragi. This follows from a joint press release published by the companies. In the US, Skullcandy leads the market for TWS headphones under $ 100. Bragi is known as the creator of a future-proof headphone software platform and mobile control app.

“The Skullcandy headphone software platform leverages the best-in-class customizable features of the BT SoC with Bragi OS,” said Jeff Hutchings, Chief Product Officer, Skullcandy. “It is used to support advanced features such as hands-free voice control, customizable button interfaces, and more.”

“The partnership with Skullcandy transforms Bragi into a headphone platform – just like Android and iOS for smartphones,” said Nikolaj Hviid, founder and CEO of Bragi.

The first result of the joint development will be three TWS models, which are scheduled for release by the end of the year. Among their functions, it is promised the ability to transmit sound to compatible devices, control the functions of the connected smartphone (in particular, its camera) and receive voice notifications about the status of the batteries.
