The next generation of tennis met next-gen consumer technology on Friday when the #1 player in the world, Naomi Osaka, launched a new line of wireless, smart headphones designed by MUZIK, to transform the way people listen to music and connect to the world around them.
Inside The Kitano Hotel, Japan’s premier luxury hotel, the international sensation unveiled the Limited Edition Smartware enabled Naomi Osaka Signature headphone powered by Google Assistant (available for pre-order at MUZIKconnect.com).
“I want to have a worldwide impact on and off the tennis court,” said Osaka, “and after meeting MUZIK founder Jason Hardi, I jumped at the chance to bring exciting new innovations to the way we all experience music, movies and games.”
After her championship victories over Serena Williams in the 2018 U.S. Open and Petra Kvitova in the 2019 Australian Open, Osaka became the first Asian player to be ranked No. 1 in the world in singles tennis.
“The world has seen Naomi’s tremendous talents on the court,” said MUZIK Founder and CEO, Jason Hardi, “but it is her multicultural connections with fans off the court from fashion to business and philanthropy that makes her a triple threat and the ideal partner with MUZIK to launch our game-changing technology.”
Matching her powerful serve and aggressive style on the tennis court, Osaka wasn’t content with sitting back as a passive investor and partner in her new product. She met up with Hardi at the MUZIK Lab in Los Angeles, CA to collaborate on the design of the headphone, which will launch with unique Connected Experiences, Original Content, and a sleek design featuring Osaka’s nickname, ‘Nao-Chi’.
The Limited Edition Naomi Osaka Signature headphones will be released in time for the holidays and is available for pre-order at www.MUZIKconnect.com.
