Las Vegas —Polk Audio is best known for building loudspeakers, but they’ve also designed some pretty good value-priced headphones in the past few years. Now the company is taking the next logical step and introducing wireless headphones.

Polk’s Hinge Wireless headphones are a wireless version of the wired Hinge headphones Polk introduced in late 2013. They’re named for the metal hinges in the headbands that let you fold them up into a relatively compact form for storage and travel.

Both varieties of Hing feature leatherette-wrapped headbands, oval ear cups, and cool, retro-inspired styling. The Hinge Wireless have a built-in microphone, and a jog dial on the right ear cup lets you control their audio and phone-call capabilities.

Expect around 12 hours of playtime on a single charge, according to the company. The headphones do not have active noise cancelling, but Polks says the ear cups “fit securely over the ears” to minimize outside noise and provide “passive noise isolation.”

Hinge Wireless headphones are available in black, blue, and camel on Polk Audio’s website, selling for $200 each.
