New York — Ultimate Ears, a unit of Logitech, and Tweaked Audio both rolled out new earphones last week.
The Ultimate Ears 700 noise-canceling earphones are said to feature a custom-tuned dual-armature micro design that delivers highly accurate sound reproduction in a compact design. Each earphone is reportedly smaller than a dime.
The dual-armature layout is engineered to separates the broad frequency response — 10 Hz to 16.5 kHz — into two high-fidelity channels per ear. An assortment of ear cushions is included, along with Comply foam cushions, providing passive noise isolation of up to 26dB, said the company. A hard carrying case is also included for a $229 suggested retail. They are scheduled to be available this month.
Tweaked Audio, a division of WolfKing, rolled out three new lines of “pro-quality,” noise-reducing ear buds. All of the ear buds feature 10mm dynamic speakers.
The three lines include Tweaked ($29.95 suggested retail), which offers four colors (blue, green, pink and red); Tweaked Classic ($34.95), which is designed to acoustically match speakers with a metal alloy housing; and Tweaked Natural ($49.95), which features “a high-density rosewood housing for a "rich acoustic experience,” said the company.
All come with a carrying bag, three interchangeable silicon gel ear adapters and a limited one-year warranty. Availability was not given at press time.
