Altec Lansing BackBeat Pro Earphones
Altec Lansing, a division of Plantronics, Inc., announced the addition of the BackBeat PRO to the award-winning BackBeat line of stereo earphones and headsets. The BackBeat PRO earphones includes high-end armature technology, engineered to deliver an in-studio sound experience at a price level far below competing headphones costing several hundreds more. The BackBeat PRO technology allows high-definition audio in a uniquely small package, providing a custom occluded fit for superior noise isolation and exceptional comfort.
Altec Lansing designs its audio products for authentic music reproduction, the way the artist intended the sound. The BackBeat PRO earphones use a single balanced armature to achieve musician-grade audio. "The armature is a high-precision microstructure that generates and moves the natural sound through the earphone chamber," explains Will Squier, Product Manager for Altec Lansing Earphones. "The BackBeat PRO was inspired by custom fit monitor earphones that return only true, reproduced sound for the musical artist while on stage."
There are three clear benefits to the BackBeat PRO's armature technology. First, it generates highly-accurate audio frequencies that match the ear's natural response to sound. Second, it requires less space than traditional speaker microdrivers, assuring a comfortable non-imposing fit within the ear canal. Third, the small size allows for a more custom-fit and a superior seal to block out ambient noise. The passive noise isolation is made possible with multiple sizes of ultra-comfort silicon ear tips, including a set of dual flange tips for extra noise reduction. The result is professional "studio quality" audio that doesn't compete with outside noise.
Compatible with iPod and other MP3 players, as well as the iPhone, the BackBeat PRO uses a standard 3.5 mm connector. The earphones are also ideal for use with desktop and laptop computers, making music editing more comfortable.
