Optoma Brings New NuForce Earbuds to CES 2015 Dylan Duarte January 7, 2015 Never underestimate the importance of quality earbuds. I know it’s hard to imagine paying so much for something so small, but it’s worth it, especially if you’re like me and music is essential to a long walk. Optoma understands this, which is why they’ve introduced two new pairs of NuForce earbuds at CES. The NE750M’s are light, aluminum-bodied earbuds that are designed not just for comfort but durability as well. They’ve got a built-in microphone that can be used to answer phone calls and verbally navigate your playlist. They weigh 14 grams, have a 1.37m long cord, and retail for $99. The NE800M’s are made of space-age carbon fiber material, which cuts down on vibrations that damage audio quality. The nozzle is made of solid brass and, like the NE750M’s, the pair comes with an attached microphone. Ultra-light titanium-coated drive diaphragms sit inside the earbuds to help deliver thundering bass. They weigh 18 grams, also have a 1.37m long cord, and retail for $199. Both headsets will be available by the end of Q1 2015. Check out the full press release below. [hide-this-part morelink=”Full Press Release”] Fremont, CA January 6, 2015 Optoma, a leading international projector brand, announces the addition of two new earphones, the NE750M and NE800M, to its NuForce line of audio products. Optoma will debut and demonstrate these new earbuds, as well as its current and expanded NuForce product line, at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, Venetian Tower – Suite 29-331. When we decided to move into the audio space, we knew NuForce had the experience in the market we wanted, said Jon Grodem, Senior Director of Product Management. Weve expanded the NuForce offerings by creating the NE750M and NE800M in order to continue the NuForce commitment and legacy in creating affordable and high-quality earphones for all musical tastes. The earpieces on both these earphones feature new Brilliance UWB (ultra-wideband) driver technology. Brilliance drivers measure 8.6mm diameter, feature Titanium coated diaphragms and very high-strength motor structures. The acoustic structure housing the Brilliance driver incorporates two acoustic chambers; each employing aperiodic loading method to simulate an open-back headphone design. This innovative technique yields a wide, open soundstage while maintaining excellent isolation from the external environment. NE750M The NE750M is the newest rendition to the award winning NE-700s. These solid, but light aluminum bodied earphones have exceptional sound quality and are designed to be both durable and comfortable to use. The built-in microphone can be used to answer calls, disconnect calls and move through a users playlist. The detailed engineering and aperiodic bass loading reduces the ear pressure for extended playtime comfort by reducing the listening fatigue. Product Specs: Driver Type: Dynamic with Brilliance UWB driver technology Driver Size: 8.6mm Impedance: 16 Ohmf Frequency Response: 20 to 20kHz Max. Input Power: 10mW Sensitivity: 113dB+/-3dB Connector: 3.5mm 4-pin stereo plug Weight (without packing): 14 grams Cord Length: 1.37m Colors: Black $99 MSRP NE800M The NE800Ms are machined from space-age carbon fiber material, which frees the headphones from the micro-dynamic vibrations that add unnecessary colorations to music. This reduction in vibrations allows users to experience a very transparent and natural sound quality. The NE800Ms nozzle has been machined from solid brass to achieve the ultimate musical reproduction. Like the NE750M, there is a built in microphone and aperiodic bass loading. Combined with all the above, the innovative NE800 offers a frequency response from 10Hz to 40kHz, a powerful N50 neodymium motor structure thats incredibly powerful in order to ensure the deepest, most authoritative bass possible. The NE800Ms also house proprietary, ultra-light weight 8.6mm Titanium coated driver diaphragms that deliver thundering bass along with a truly relaxed-yet-natural presentation and an intoxicatingly “holographic” sound stage.
