Optoma Introduces Range Of NuForce Balanced Armature Hi-Res Audio Earphones

 

  Optoma Technology, a leading international projector and audio brand, announces four models of Hi-Res Audio certified, multi-driver balanced armature earphones at CES 2016 (Central Hall, Booth #11440). The NuForce HEM8, HEM6, HEM4 and HEM2 earphone monitors feature balanced armature drivers, acoustically calculated, vibration-free Lexan earpieces and hand-made premium earphone cables manufactured from OFC copper and silver as well as featuring a proprietary linear-phase crossover design. These luxury and high-quality earphones are perfect for audio enthusiasts who demand balanced sound with pristine highs and deep bass, at home or on the go.

"Quality drivers alone don't make great earphones," Jon Grodem, Senior Director of Product Management at Optoma. "Our new NuForce HEM earphones are Hi-Res audio certified and specially engineered by NuForce's audio team to bring out the finest nuances from streamed or stored audio. We have spent months fine tuning these earphones to really satisfy today´s audio enthusiasts, no matter what they're listening too."

 

Balanced Armature Drivers
The HEM monitors unite the coherence and seamlessness of one-driver earphones with the detail and transient speed of balanced armature drivers to deliver an extraordinarily natural and lifelike sound. This use of BA drivers, combined with exceptional engineering and design allows the HEM series to excel in their ability to reproduce vocals and bass unlike any other in-ear headphone on the market today. Each HEM model houses either four (HEM8), three (HEM6), two (HEM4) or one (HEM2) balanced armature drivers in each earbud.

 

Crossover Design
The graininess of other balanced armature earphone designs is often the result of crosstalk between drivers due to their crossover network's inability to prevent excessive frequency overlap. To combat this, NuForce has created a three-way phase-coherent crossover design that achieves linear phase performance. This results in a natural, three-dimensional soundstage, lightning-fast transients and crystalline transparency.

This proprietary crossover design has the earphone's speakers singing together as one. The results of this technology are clearly audible. Plucked strings take on an amazingly life-like presence, vocalists sound as if they are there "in-the-flesh," percussion explodes in a truly three-dimensional sound stage. With the HEM series, the subtlest of details appear magical and the sound is never fatiguing.

 

More NuForce HEM Series Features
• Proprietary Cable Design – HEM Series headphone cables are constructed from 20% silver-plated OFC copper conductors arranged in an asymmetrical signal and ground configuration, with the ground path conductors being 20% larger in diameter than those of the signal path.

• Advanced Tweeter Drivers – Employing the latest advanced high frequency drivers from the Knowles Corporation, allows the HEM Series Headphones to offer a remarkable response that extends up to 40 kHz. 

• Rock-solid Construction – Formed from Lexan materials, the chassis of all HEM Series Headphones are rigid and free of the chassis vibrations and colorations commonly exhibited by other brands.

• Comfortable Fit – All HEM earphones include Comply Foam Ear Tips to provide superior noise isolation and performance.

 

Price & Availability
The NuForce HEM earphones will be available February 2016 and will range from $199 to $499. Each model will come with two pairs of Comply tips, a range of different sized silicon tips, and two carrying cases; one that is airtight and waterproof, and one that is a rigid fabric pouch for protection while on the go.
