Evangelion x Final Audio headphones release
Following a collaboration with ASUS ROG for special edition graphics cards, evangelization is now working with Japanese headphone brand Final Audio on a pair of EVA2020 “Type-REI” wireless headphones based on stoic blue-haired pilot Ayanami Rei. The design and colorway of the headphones are based on the blue and white hues of Rei’s prototype Unit-00 chassis with a mecha-like paneled enclosure and numbered ear cups.
The sound profile is said to deliver clear vocals with powerful bass, and the buds are equipped with up to nine hours of music playback on a single charge with 63 hours of total battery life using the charging case. A special feature of the headphones is the all-original voice guidance of an operator who announces power, pairing and connection switches with pre-recorded memos that can be switched between Japanese and English. The custom package includes five sets of ear tips in different sizes and a USB Type-C charging cable.
The Evangelion x Final Audio EVA2020 “Type-REI” headphones are available now at select retailers for a recommended price of $1,580 HKD (approximately $200 USD). More information about previous releases in the series can be found here.
