BenQ today released treVolo, the world’s first portable electrostatic wireless speaker, which has unique foldable metallic wings. Unlike conventional speakers, this speaker’s entire thin-film diaphragm is designed for bidirectional sound projection over a large surface area, radiating a high level of audio detail from every angle for a listening experience that is open yet intimate. An aptX transmitter in addition to being a speaker, this speaker utilizes aptX to deliver audio signals over Bluetooth with faithfully reproduced audio bandwidth and minimized latency and sync issues. So you can enjoy CD-like quality sound wirelessly from your smart devices to your Hi-Fi stereo system.
The BenQ portable electrostatic speaker comes with a number of features and functions that enhance your audio enjoyment with added convenience and ease. It can also be used as a speakerphone for answering incoming calls, so you can speak directly into its speaker instead of reaching for your phone. Lastly, a single charge on the built-in rechargeable lithium battery gives you 12 hours of playtime for a full day of listening.
Designed for audiophiles, treVolo features three preset audio profile modes to generate unique electrostatic sound signatures that optimize any type of music. Using its “Pure” default mode, treVolo provides balanced tonal accuracy with minimal equalization to maintain a song’s natural detail. For a softer sound experience, the device’s “Warm” mode generates a more traditional Bluetooth speaker sound with emphasis on accurate bass reproduction. Lastly, treVolo’s “Vivid” mode allows users to accentuate vocal melodies or lead instruments such as guitars, horns, or other elements in complex multitrack recordings. As a result, listeners can easily customize their audio experience — regardless of musical genre, recording technique, or device.
Using aptX Bluetooth wireless technology, treVolo allows music aficionados to instantly pair handheld devices including iPhones, Android devices, tablets, or PCs without the limitations of line inputs or the need for power outlets. As a result, listeners can unleash portable sound directly from streaming music services such as iTunes, Pandora, Spotify, or any personal digital library using a compact, versatile, and stylish solution. Incredibly flexible, treVolo adds a 16-bit digital USB input for enhanced connectivity from any PC, tablet, or audio player, as well as an analog line-out function that enables the unit to operate as a Bluetooth receiver in a home environment if desired.
