Pendulumic has just released the $200 S1 Stance wireless over-ear headphones geared towards audiophiles and musicians. The Bluetooth headphones were created by renowned audio engineers for those who understand and appreciate the immersive audio experience that a closed, over-the-ear headphone provides, value wireless portability, and crave the superior dynamics that its built-in amplifier provides.
With four MultiMode listening options — wireless, amplified, wired, and phone control — Stance S1 can adapt to whatever environment you’re in, and however you want to listen. The S1’s offer a built-in EQ-tuned Pendulumic amplifier, premium drivers, studio-quality components, and ForgettableFit comfort.
“STANCE S1 is all about freedom,” said lead product designer and PENDULUMIC co-founder Chunbeng Quek, well-known and highly respected for his headphone products, consumer electronics, user-centric product concepts, and lifestyle products. “The many integrated features enable discerning audio experts to have a superior, personal music experience when and where they need it, without taking off one product and putting on another, or having to switch out gear for a phone call. It’s really like having four headphones in one—at an unexpectedly low price.”
Quek has also provided industry-leading product designs for respected headphone manufacturer Sennheiser, as well as for Bic, Samsung and many others.
