Mystery Surrounds New Headphone brand
Mystery surrounds the launch of a new range of headphones from an Optoma owned Company.
According to Sophie Muir an Account Manager at the Red Agency the new headphones will “shortly be sold at both JB Hi Fi and Harvey Norman” however she was unable to identify the distributor who will be supplying the two mass retailers.
Instead she recommended that consumers interested in the new headphone brand go to “eBay” to purchase their NuForce headphones.
Ambertech who have been the distributor for Optoma products including their projector range said that they were not the distributor for the new headphones and that they were not aware that an Australian distributor had been appointed for NuForce a US brand that was acquired by Optoma in 2014.
At the time Optoma executives said “Audio was a logical progression for Optoma, bringing together great video with equally great sound. NuForce is already known for its clean design and superior sound. A streamlined NuForce sound range will comprise of home cinema products that complement Optoma’s home projectors, wireless systems to deliver crystal clear HiFi sound from a mobile device and earphones for the same premium listening experience anywhere, anytime”.
The new range being offered in Australia include the NuForce BE Sport3 and BE6i wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphones.
According to their press statement the headphones are IP55 water, sweat and dust resistance rating, have a 10-hour battery life, and AAC and aptX® audio compatibility.
They have a recommended retail price of $124.99.
The NuForce BE Sport3 are crafted from aluminium and polycarbonate and weigh just 13g.
They are described as light weight, durable and sold at an excellent price point.
The lightweight BE6i aluminium headphones include the award-winning BE6 predecessor which NuForce said delivers greater sound quality, a better fit, and extended eight-hour battery life and IPX5 water resistance rating.
Available in grey and gold and the RRP is $174.99.
