LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2014 — 2014 INTERNATIONAL CES – Audio innovator Altec Lansing launched the new MZW855 3D Surround Sound Bluetooth Headphones offering a cordless, immersive 3D listening experience with legendary Altec sound quality. The headphones easily pair with a free app available on iTunes and the Google Play Store that mirrors songs playing on the headphones. The app displays the title of the song, artist, and album cover on social media channels.

The MZW855 pairs with any Bluetooth 4.0 enabled device, including mobile phones, tablets and computers, with supreme-comfort memory foam ear cushions for the ultimate in relaxed listening. Delivering full 3D surround sound with dual 40mm premium neodymium drivers, the MZW855 also features active noise cancellation, plus an integrated microphone for hands-free phone calls.

The ‘slight touch’ control panel makes it easy to answer and end calls, play and pause music and jump forward and back in the playlist, as well as adjust the volume with just a touch. A rechargeable Li-Ion battery delivers built-in power for up to 12 hours of continuous playback and lasts up to 40 hours on standby.
