We’ve seen our fair share of “smart headphones” over the past few years of doing product reviews and regular every day coverage for Dealerscope. But I can assure you that we’ve seen nothing close to the likes of the Vinci 2.0 Standalone Smart Headphone, which recently launched on Indiegogo and far surpassed its goal of $20,000—it’s currently sitting just north of $888,000 as of this posting.
The Vinci 2.0 headphones combine the skills of your favorite pair of sport headphones with your go-to fitness tracker, a smartphone, and even sprinkles in a little intelligent smart speaker on top. Available for preorder now through the Indiegogo campaign, consumers can opt for one of three different versions of the Vinci 2.0 headphones: the Vinci Lite, the Vinci 2.0 Pro, and the Vinci 2.0 Super. All three models ship with 3G/WiFi/Bluetooth capabilities, access to 15,000+ Amazon Alexa skills, an AKM4376 HiFi DAC, and have an integrated 1.1-inch OLED display on the side of the neckband.
From there, the differences come down to the internal storage size (8, 16, and 32GB from Lite to Super), smart noise cancellation (available in the Pro and Smart models), and a bone conduction microphone (Smart edition). Accordingly, pricing will range from $199, to $289, to $299 for the different models of the Vinci 2.0—though all are listed for step discounts during the Indiegogo campaign.
