Meizu is very much known for its smartphone business which is very popular in countries like Russia apart from China. Meizu also has a crowdfunding platform where it releases different tech gadgets and other products regularly. Meizu is now tipped as planning to launch a high-end headphone this year.
Not that Meizu does not have a headset to its name, there is the Meizu EP20, EP-51, the high-end Meizu HD50 and others but it has been a while since the company released a high-end headset. But according to a tech blogger on Weibo, Meizu is said to be working on a headset. The headset may not necessarily be a flagship model but won’t come with a cheap price tag. In addition, the tech company which started out as an MP3 player manufacturer may also churn out a music player soon. Meizu’s business background means it has the ability to manufacture quality headsets capable of giving out a powerful and much more immersive sound.
At the moment, high-end headsets are quite expensive, selling for as high as $400. So it remains to be seen if Meizu will be able to pull through with such a high price tag or if the headphone business will be able for help shore up the company’s revenue from the figures they recorded last year.
