Meters OV-1 headphones: with fully-functioning VU meters

They also boast the company’s patented VU meters that react in real-time to the sound level. A great style feature but not a great deal of practical help for the user although the company does point towards parents being able to monitor their children’s audio volume output.

For the OV-1s, Meters Music has also created its own light-weight alloy headset as well as using protein leather.

    I love,and miss the days of meters. On headphones can’t be anything but appearance blind. Like you said,no practical use for the listener.
