Narrowly missing out on the top prize, BassBuds™ luxury gold in-ear headphones was selected as a ‘highly commended’ product by the judges in this important industry review. Rolled out in limited quantities, the 24 carat gold edition is the newest luxury item to be added to the BassBuds™ fashion forward high performance in-earphones collection. “BassBuds™ brings a unique blend of glamour and style, innovation and high performance sound, to this beautiful statement piece” says CEO, Clint Ippoma.

The sleek precision cut housing of each earphone is encased with exquisite 24 Carat gold plating and topped off with a perfectly set SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS® crystal stone. The advanced Crystaltronics® sound technology ensures a deep and clear HD authentic listening experience.

On the tangle-resistant chord, the integrated hands-free microphone is compatible with all smartphones and media players and works together with the BB button to provide multi-functional control of phonecalls, audio selection and Siri and Google search use.

The BassBuds™ 24 Carat Gold Collection is accompanied by specially designed high end packaging and excellent accessories to add that extra experience of eye-catching opulence and personal luxury to the gift presentation.

With celebrities like Sam Smith, Rita Ora and Dizzee Rascal enjoying the sound quality, BassBuds™ was also the first ever in-ear headphones brand to be featured at London Fashion Week, with its fashion colours line last Autumn. The brand was seen in the LFW issue of Vogue UK – the biggest issue of the entire year – and received national and international press attention, from Elle, Grazia, Esquire, Prima and many more.

The limited edition is now available on-line at UK department store Selfridges as well as in premium outlets abroad and will soon be available in more selected stores. The Rose Gold collection has also been developed and is set to complement this Gold collection later in the year.
