Following the success of Audex Bluetooth Jacket Series, Motorola and Burton Snowboards today announced the expansion of their wearable electronics collection, enabling easy wireless communication and music entertainment from snowboard apparel.
New for 2007, the Audex Bluetooth Stereo System streams downloaded music wirelessly from a Bluetooth-enabled phone to an Audex jacket. Users can listen to music and make calls with a push of a button on the jacket sleeve and includes built-in DJ-style speakers in the hood and/or an integrated headphone jack.
Burton-owned impact protection company R.E.D. also partners with Motorola to offer two helmet styles and one beanie style that feature Bluetooth technology, allowing users to pick up calls and listen to music from a compatible mobile phone without taking off the hat or helmet.
"The second generation of Audex products represents a strengthened commitment between Motorola and Burton to offer snowboarders new technologies that will enhance and simplify life on and off the mountain," says Bryan Johnston, Vice President of Global Marketing at Burton. "Audex technology is now offered in more Burton jackets, packs, apparel and accessories than ever before, giving riders plenty of tech and style choices."
