Inspired by the music festival “silent disco” trend, headphone brand Wearhaus Inc. recently launched its new product Wearhaus Arc, new wireless headphones that aim to bring back the intimacy and fun of listening to music together.

After connecting with Wearhaus app (available for iOS and Android) on your phone or phones nearby, Wearhaus Arc can sync multiple users’ headphones using a proprietary Bluetooth mesh network with 30m syncing range, allowing users to share a favorite song with a friend or broadcast a playlist to fellow commuters. A variety of privacy settings are also available: the listener can choose to broadcast to any nearby Arc user, friends only, or to turn off music sharing entirely.

The headphone is sleekly designed with each earcup features an iconic, ring-shaped backlight that can be set to any color via the mobile app. When other people tune in to your music, their lights pulse with the same color – a visual cue to tell who’s listening with you. A capacitive touch panel allows you to easily control volume, playback, and sharing with simple gestures.
