A first of its kind straight from the metaverse but comes as a physical entity; Lecoo Tech’s first conceptual headphones, the Lecoo-MJ616. The headphones speak to all NFT (and music) enthusiasts unlike any other product on the market.
The Beijing-based company has specially created an electroacoustic transducer that revolutionises all things web3. Designed for Millennials and Gen Zs, they have accessed a want we didn’t even know we needed in the current digital age.

The Lecoo-MJ616 headphones are said to be able to integrate themselves with NFTs, support the metaverse, store digital assets, track your activity, process payment solutions and access social media platforms. As NFTs and metaverse entities populate our daily lives, Lecoo has jumped ahead of all competitors to give us a device for our everyday use and not forgetting to integrate music along with it.
The headphones display digital artworks on both sides of the driver’s exterior with an HD OLED screen that spans 3.2 inches, showing off your potentially-million-dollar NFTs while playing tunes. Clout much? Besides making people on the street peanut butter and jealous, it also provides access to a marketplace that allows for purchasing, transfers and sharing of digital assets.

When it comes to fundamental features, we’re not sure whether they're even able to be categorised as “basic” at this point. The device includes a heart rate monitoring sensor inside the leather cushions of the driver. The sensors also serve a second purpose and automatically the music on when you’re wearing the device with their near-field sensor. Probably the only other rudimentary properties as compared with other headphones on the market are noise reduction, audio access ports and a microphone.
The headphone is slated to boost the evolution of Lecoo’s metauniverse in the future and we’re expecting more web3-enabled devices from their ecosystem soon.
