“Obviously, sound is the most important thing first,” Jonas explained. “We need to make sure it sounds good, which it does. I can vouch for that. And on top of that, as my career has evolved over the last few years, and I’ve moved more into an adult, mature artistry and creative a process, I think it was important to give this that look, as well, while understanding that my fans were on the journey with me. And with this, too, I wanted to make sure that people who have no idea who I am or what I’ve done look at it, and say, ‘Oh, that’s cool. I actually want to use those headphones.”
Jonas has been busy over the last five years. His last three singles charted in the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. Jonas has also taken turns on the big and small screen, with television appearances including the Ryan Murphy comedy horror series “Scream Queens,” as well as a starring role on the ongoing DirecTV series “Kingdom,” where he plays a gay martial artist. Jonas also recently wrapped filming the remake of “Jumanji” in Hawaii, with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jack Black, which he said respects the original 1995 hit starring the late Robin Williams.
In the interim, he has enjoyed his first CES — an experience he found eye-opening, given nearly 200,000 people attended this year, by some estimates.
“My older brother Kevin has been a few times, and he gave me the heads-up of what to look out for,” Jonas explained. “But it’s insane — a lot of energy. The city is packed. It’s great to see so many minds all in one place.”
