Moshi Ushers in a New Generation of Sound with Avanti C

Boasting better sound quality than their 3.5 mm counterparts, Moshi’s new on-ear headphones establish the company as an industry leader in USB-C audio.

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Moshi, the accessory design house, today has announced a new addition to its expanding USB-C audio collection: Avanti C, an on-ear headset with an ergonomic headband and premium vegan leather earcups.

“Working with Apple and Google on USB-C projects over the past few years has given us an engineering headstart when it comes to USB-C audio,” said Spencer Pangborn, Director of Product Marketing at Moshi. “Now that major phone makers like Apple, Google, Samsung and others are completely removing the headphone jack, it’s only a matter of time before USB-C headphones become commonplace.”

“Wireless audio solutions will remain popular, but true aficionados will continue using wired headsets since there’s no bandwidth limitation or charging required. USB-C audio also offers superior sound quality because the analog cable runs are shorter thanks to the digital-to-analog converter (DAC) being located near the drivers.”

Moshi’s Avanti C is equipped with a DAC and offers high-resolution audio (24-bit/96 kHz) with a Class G amplifier. It features a rotatable stainless steel headband and angled earcups for added comfort. The on-ear headset is built with high-resolution 40 mm neodymium drivers for a full-bodied sound signature and excellent noise isolation.

Avanti C ($199.95) is available today on and includes a custom carrying case and a USB-C and 3.5 mm connector for ultimate compatibility.
