Lisle, Ill. - Molex threw its hat into the earphones ring with the introduction of the Evaldi-branded noise-isolating earphones.
Molex is an electronic
connector company, and the Evaldi earphones mark its first audio product. The
earphones will be distributed by Digi-Key.
"Entering the audio market is a natural progression for Molex -- blending advanced microminiature interconnect technology and global manufacturing excellence with high-end acoustics to create superior audio performance and â€˜3-Dimensional' sound quality," Joe Falcone, Molex product manager, said in a statement.
