Hoop by Coloud headphones for Lumia launched by Microsoft
Following HTC’s move when cooperating with Beast Audio to launch headset for its products, Microsoft had teamed up with with Coloud (a Swedish maker of audio accessories) to manufacture and introduce a new headset for Lumia smartphones. Called, Hoop by Colous, this is an in-ear headset created with the aim of attracting users with active life style. In a word, it is built to “handle your favorite workouts.”
Designed by Microsoft, the new device is splash-proof, protected against dust and sweat along with a tangle-free cable. It is covered by a reflective material that helps you stay visible in the dark. An adjustable support loop helps you to keep the earpieces in your ears so keeping you out of distraction from whatever you are doing.
The in-ear headphone is said to have a 32 ohm speaker impedance and the ability to produce sound from 20Hz to 20,000 Hz. It weighs 20.5 g and can bear the temperature between -5 and 40 degrees Celcius (or 23 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit) but still operate well. It is also a pretty sensitive headset, too, which means you can play use with your Lumia handset or tablets.
Now, the Europe seems to be the only market where the Hoop by Coloud headset is available at the price of €29. It is offered to customers in 3 different colors: orange, green and black.
Microsoft suggests using the Hoop by Coloud on the new Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL (other Lumia smartphones are still compatible).
