San Francisco – Incase
announced it is entering the headphones category in the fall.
Few tech specs were
available for the company’s first models, but Incase said the products will
employ a development approach it termed “Incase Soundesign,” said to reflect “a
synthesis of precision sound engineering and minimal design.”
“With Soundesign as
our guiding ethos, we are focused on delivering headphones that bring together
design simplicity and intuitive functionality with precision sound and maximum
performance,” said Markus Diebel, Incase design VP, in a statement.
Four models will ship in
the fall: Sonic over-ear, Reflex on-ear, Pivot on-ear and Capsule in-ear. The
designs will match the natural shape of the ear and head, the company noted,
and a range of adjustment and fully articulating ear cups will be available.
Other design features
will include hidden joints, matte and gloss finishes, and integrated mics and
remotes for use with Apple devices.
