SMS Audio has announced today that Timbaland has become a new investor in 50 Cent’s “SMS Audio” headphone company. He’ll be joining SMS Audio as an investment partner and member of the company’s board of directors, and getting involved with the design and audio engineering process for the new SMS Audio products. This seems like the right move to make, we will definitely learn more about this partnership during CES 2013 later next week.
