SMS, Intel Team on Biometric Earbuds

Intel has joined forces with SMS Audio- the audio and headphone company associated with rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson- to launch a new line of earbuds, the Wall Street Journal reported late last week.

The products are based on a concept shared by Intel CEO Brian Krzanich in his keynote address at International CES in January.

The earbuds will work with a smartphone app to measure the user’s heart rate. The line, under the name SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones, will arrive in the fourth quarter this year.
