One of the major problems with headsets these days, are that they are built on almost nothing.
Inside your typical headset, specially gaming headsets.
why should headphones be neglected, while mice and keyboards advance with macro keys, lighting effects and more?

I have been for the last few weeks designing a gaming headset that also doubles as a portable media speaker. Built on top of ATMEL IC technology, inbuilt rechargeable battery and built to last while supporting fully modular, fully repairable/moddable parts.
The DIGI Beats are a durable all in one solution for speakers, utilizing optional packaging you can build and use them as you see fit.

harness analog audio from your very own sound card, or use the supplied USB for raw digital audio all the way to your speakers for that extra crisp sound.
High Quality pots for volume control and amplification and on the fly wire to wireless bluetooth for up to 50m.

  • Dual Support for Analog and Digital Audio
  • Bluetooth sync to USB dongle, with on the fly sync switch
  • Wired and wireless options
  • All wires and cables are replaceable with common parts, making any damage from rough use easily repairable without need of RMA
  • Completely mod friendly, all documentation will be open for modification
  • Built in led lights that blink to parameters on SD card.
  • Custom audio warnings on SD card, add your own
  • Rechargeable Lithium Batt with USB mini charging capabilities
