Fashion-Forward Design Makes the New Meters Music OV-1-B Connect Studio Quality Headphones Stand Out in Any Crowd!


Music-loving fashionistas want to make a loud statement with all of their personal tech. Now, Ashdown Engineering, the legendary UK company that’s been designing world-class bass amplifiers for globe-trotting musicians like U2, Foo Fighters and Sir Paul McCartney, is empowering them to do just that with the U.S. launch of its Meters OV-1-B Connect Headphones, the world’s first over-the-ear headphones to feature a working volume unit (VU) meter on each earcup!

The foldable, Bluetooth OV-1-B Connect is available in black, white, and tan at AmazonSweetwater and B&H Photo, among others, for $349.99. 

Literally replicating the input level meters found on Ashdown Engineering’s professional bass amplifiers, each real, active volume VU meter features an RGB backlight that gives listeners the ability to express their mood by adjusting the color and brightness of their VU meter to match any style, ambiance or mood. In any environment, the sleek, fashion-forward Meters OV-1-B is guaranteed to let music aficionados enjoy an immersive music listening experience while they turn the heads of everyone who sees them!

Since making its debut in Europe, the Meters OV-1-B’s combination of cutting-edge design and world-class audio technology has gained a fanatical following among music lovers and music makers, including Stevie Wonder, members of Biffy Clyro, Zak Starkey, System of a Down’s Shavo Odadjian, and Ray Parker Jr, among many others.

“Following our success in Europe, Meters is ready to bring its truly unique headphones to the U.S. market,” said Ashdown Engineering Chairman Mark Gooday. “Now fashion-conscious music lovers across the United States can experience the aural benefits of professional sound engineering while making a very loud and personal style statement that will immediately set them apart from the crowd.”

The OV-1-B Connect features a rich, warm sound with powerful noise canceling and is compatible with any Bluetooth-equipped personal audio device. Each pair can be customized through the Meters Connect app for Android and iOS devices, which offers color and brightness control for the VU meter. On-ear buttons make it easy to answer calls, skip tracks and adjust the volume.

Meters headphones are available in the United States exclusively through KMC Music
