Accuracy Meets Inspiration, Blue Introduces Lola Headphones
Blue extends its acclaimed headphone line with Lola, a high-fidelity headphone that features massive custom drivers and a radical form-fit design engineered to reveal new detail in your music
(Westlake Village, CA – October 27, 2015) Blue, a 20-year leading innovator in audio technology and design, today announces Lola, a sealed over-ear high-fidelity headphone that is both accurate and inspiring. Lola extends Blue’s radical holistic design for optimized performance and the most personalized fit, and introduces a new lighter, slim-fit headband. Lola’s sealed over-ear design and massive custom 50mm drivers provide extremely accurate sound reproduction, while the precision acoustic cabinets present an impeccable sound stage. The result is a headphone that delivers the accuracy of reference monitors while also providing that emotional inspiration that is so critical for songwriting and producing.
“Until now, making music on headphones meant living with flat, unemotional sound. Lola does what no headphone has done before—deliver mixes that translate, with a listening experience that feels dimensional and alive” said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones. “Whether you’re tracking, mixing, or listening recreationally, Lola reveals new detail in your music without sounding clinical or cold.
Lola builds on Blue’s heritage for inspiring design and performance. It shares the same custom 50mm drivers and innovative enclosure architecture as the acclaimed Mo-Fi headphone. Huge cabinets behind the drivers deliver optimal performance by maximizing the volume of air around the drivers. This holistic design approach results in full-range sound with tight and powerful low end, articulate and warm mids, and accurate extended high frequency response. Each aspect of the design works harmoniously to deliver a listening experience optimal for both creating music and enjoying it.
Lola also advances Blue’s radically innovative approach to personalized comfort and fit by introducing a new lighter, slim-fit headband. First introduced with Mo-Fi, Blue’s reinvented headband design features a four-point multi-jointed linkage system and pivoting arms that allow the headphones to stay perfectly parallel at all times. Lola furthers this design with a new slim version of this headband that provides total comfort and adjustability for any head shape and size. And earcups—shaped like ears—provide a superior seal around the ears for accurate bass response, improved isolation and reduced sound bleed. The result is a supremely precise, highly customizable fit system that allows for superior long-session comfort and great performance.
Lola comes with a soft travel case, a high-quality 3-meter audio cable, 1.5-meter audio cable with built-in mic and Apple iPhone/iPad controls, and a 3.5 mm to ¼ inch adapter.
Lola (MSRP $249.99) will be available in charcoal black and pearl white starting in November at Guitar Center, Sweetwater, Musician’s Friend, Sam Ash, Full Compass, Casico Interstate Music and coming soon to other authorized retailers worldwide. For more information visit www.blue-headphones.com.
