Lucid Audio Debuts AMPED Products

I don't often post press releases; BUT I'm making an exception here.  We used to do this back in the day at both and at Gear Diary, with the caveat that a review was coming and that we weren't being paid to do so. Both of those conditions are true in this case as well. neckband-white-gray-angled-streamerLucid Audio has sent me a Neck Band to review and I hope to look at it this month as part of all of the iPhone 7/ 7 Plus release hullaballoo. To be very honest though, I'm having a bit of trouble motivating myself to think positively about the neckband.  It looks hideous. Its huge. I looks like a big, thick, wide faceted necklace that hangs down, well past your collar bone. It also looks heavy, though that may just be look and in reality, it may not be heavy at all. We'll have to wait and see... One point that the press release doesn't do a good job at pointing out though, is that their Neckband and Audio Streamer Kit is available as a bundle for $199 USD.  This is the product that I will be reviewing later this month. The full press release on all of the newly available Lucid Audio products is available after the break.
