Taiwanese motherboard manufacturer ECS unveiled the Liva Aston Smart, the world's first headphones with Alexa built-in. Basically what this means is that consumers will be able to interact with Alexa in the cloud without the need to have a smartphone or Amazon Echo present. Setup is a breeze since all you have to do is connect the Liva Aston Smart to your router. Featuring 40 mm drivers, users can use the headphones to play music, listen to news, obtain weather forecasts, and many other activities.

The ECS Liva Aston Smart even allows consumers to control home automation systems like lights, outlets, and other smart devices as long as they are connected to the same WiFi network. The headphones also comes with Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity for those occasions where the users doesn't have access to WiFi. With a 1100 mAh battery, the Liva Aston Smart is good for up to 5 hours of usage. ECS will offer the headphones in both a standard and a premium edition, which comes with ANC and Hi-Res audio support.
