Nowall USA, a DC-based startup, has announced the world’s first dual-speaker Bluetooth wireless earphones via Kickstarter campaign for under $100. The company says the CH-1 earphones deliver audiophile-level quality wirelessly.
Nowall’s innovative design has moved the battery from the earpieces to a lightweight neck pendant, CH-1 so there is more room to fit the technology that makes them sound so incredible. CH-1 contains in each earpiece both an armature speaker to deliver crisp high and mid tones (like most Bluetooth earphones) and a dynamic 10mm driver to deliver deep, resonant bass. Containing twice the normal number of speakers, CH-1 is able to reproduce your music accurately and translucently without the usual distortion that happens over Bluetooth.
But even if you’re not an audiophile, CH-1 has some other cool features. It is amazing at noise isolation, effectively blocking out everything you don’t want to hear. Anytime you need a distraction-free environment, like when traveling or working in an open office, CH-1 keeps you focused. Included are five sets of ear tips to ensure that you get a secure and comfortable fit for your ears.
What makes the CH-1 really cool though, and makes them worth the price unto itself: you can listen to CH-1 even after it runs out of battery power. How? Included is an auxiliary cable to connect your device to CH-1, effectively transforming them into a traditional, wired set of earphones.
Nowall says the CH-1 will operate wirelessly for up to 10 hours, which is double that of most competitors. Bluetooth range is the standard at thirty feet while still hearing audiophile-quality sound. They’re perfect for watching a Bluetooth-enabled TV or doing chores around the house.
Price and Availability
The Nowall CH-1 earphones are available for backers at only $69 for a limited time on Kickstarter (it’s $79 after that for the duration of the campaign and $99 retail). Shipping is expected in June/July 2016.
Nowall also announced plans for CH-2 and CH-3 earphones, each containing the respective number of armature units in each earpiece to deliver increasingly accurate sound. The CH-2 will retail for $199 and the CH-3 for $299.
