The first Alexa-enabled headphones are here and they actually look decent

If anything we’re surprised it’s taken this long for the first pair of Alexa-enabled headphones to arrive on the scene.

Little known US audio manufacturer 66 Audio (via Zdnet) is first to the punch with the Pro Voice, the first pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones with the preeminent personal assistant built right in.

Users will pair their smartphones and speak the wake word “Alexa” for the headphones to start listening.

They’ll leverage the smartphone’s Wi-Fi or mobile data connection in order to deliver results based on the queries.

The key advantages will be things like hands-free Alexa during exercise (66 Audio specialises in headphones for athletes) or other scenarios where pulling out the phone is less than ideal.

The headphones themselves feature 36mm stereo drivers, hardware-based EQ, active noise cancellation and a 40 hours battery life. Bluetooth range stretches to an impressive 125-feet.

There’s also a companion Motion Control app for iOS and Android, which enables users to control the EQ, discover the last known location of the headphones and see battery life and connectivity status

The headphones are going on sale in the US, UK and Canada from today, priced at $139 (around $105).
