SKAA® High-Fidelity, Low-Latency Wireless Technology Delivers Hi-Fi Sound Quality for Music and Makes Lip-Sync Problems Inaudible with TV, Movies, and Games
Franklin, MA – December 06, 2021 – Atlantic Technology, innovating in audio for over 30-years and known for outstanding sound quality in music and home theater, leads again with the new FS-BTWS582 headphones. These premium high-fidelity headphones do what other wireless headphones simply can’t: they work with all gear for music plus all other Audio/Video gear and media including TV, movies and games – with inaudible audio lip-sync or game lag. Shipping now, the FS-BTWS582 headphones have an MSRP of $499.
A recent Nielsen study shows that 69% of media time is spent with A/V media such as TV, movies and games and 31% with music. Bluetooth® wireless is fine for music and phone calls but its inherent variable latency is considered unsuitable for A/V media due to unwanted audio “lip sync” and “game lag”. Now Atlantic Technology has created headphones with unprecedented versatility and value that work with 100% of all media.
The FS-BTWS582’s incredible versatility is due to SKAA® high-fidelity, low latency wireless technology that’s perfect for music or all A/V media, and adds Bluetooth giving universal wireless connectivity for music or smartphone calls. Plus a detachable analog cable is included for unlimited battery-free listening.
SKAA Wireless Advantages
SKAA streams clear, interference-free, CD quality audio over a long range of up to 150 feet from a variety of Atlantic Technology SKAA products such as the Gatecrasher3 PowerBar™, FS-252 powered speakers and the STA-200 integrated amp. Plus, Atlantic Technology sells 6 tiny, low-cost plug-and-play adapters enabling any analog or digital audio device the ability to transmit SKAA audio streams to multiple SKAA speakers and headphones.
SKAA is fast to set up and easy to use. No app or pairing is needed to play from SKAA devices; a single button on the headphones is all that’s needed to connect and switch SKAA audio sources.
All SKAA products and transmitters feature SKAA 4:1 Streaming, to transmit SKAA audio to any combination of up to 4 SKAA speakers, amps or headphones for multi-room or multi-user music. This creates unique capabilities that other headphones simply can’t match such as playing audio from TV, movies and video games without disturbing others. They’re great for musicians and DJ’s too.
Simplified Living with Super-Smart Headphones
“The Atlantic Technology Gatecrasher3 PowerBar® has SKAA Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and Connect Awareness to sense the presence of the super-smart FS-BTWS582 headphones. Turn the headphones on, and Gatecrasher3 automatically mutes its audio and switches audio to the headphones,” said Paul Fredrickson, Business Development Director for Muto Communications – the PR and Business Development agency of record for Atlantic Technology. “Now with a single button, it’s easy to watch late night movies or play games with excellent lag-free wireless sound and not disturb others. This 100% media compatibility, versatility and A.I. convenience is an industry first.”
The Atlantic Technology FS-BTWS582’s are premium in every respect, designed and engineered for superb sound quality and ultra comfortable for long listening sessions using top-tier technology, design, ergonomics, materials and construction. Each pivoting over-ear closed cup has plush foam leather covered pads for excellent sound isolation and listening comfort. The adjustable headband is covered in leather encased soft foam for comfort and the contrast stitching adds a stylish touch. The headphones come in a choice of three colors; Satin Black, Cotton White and Classic Blue, with Rose Gold plated trim and hardware for an elegant premium appearance.
Superb performance starts with large 50mm full-range, fast, responsive Mylar dynamic drivers with high-efficiency Neodymium magnets for excellent dynamics, clear highs and deep bass. The 32 ohm impedance makes them easy to drive by any device and its 114 dB sensitivity delivers low distortion full frequency audio even at low volume.
The lithium-ion battery recharges from any USB 2.0 power source via the included USB A-to-C 5-foot charging cable and runs for 12 hours on a charge. For battery-free listening, a detachable 4.5-foot audiophile grade braided cable with in-line microphone, phone controls, and gold-plated 3.5mm jacks are included.
Each headphone cup includes charging and analog audio ports, plus on-board microphone, smartphone controls +/- volume and track, power on/off, Bluetooth/SKAA selection, Bluetooth pairing and SKAA bonding/selection. Multi-color LEDs indicate mode and function status for easy operation.
SKAA technology is proven by pro-musicians to reliably stream high-quality, in-sync sound that concert audiences demand. SKAA is a Hi-Fi multi-channel, multi-room standard for all media to give audio a superior, dedicated, uncongested wireless superhighway. Gear from any brand with the SKAA logo is fully interoperable.
SKAA’s fixed 36 ms low-latency audio is 3 to 5 times better than other wireless tech making lip-sync inaudible.
