Paramount Wireless Inc., a Los Angeles-based wireless accessory company, has entered into the MP3 audio space by launching a new division called iharmonix. The company, dedicated to offering earphone designs that provide dynamic sound performance while maintaining style and ergonomic comfort, announced today its first product launches with the introduction of its flagship Platinum Series and sleek Style FX Series.
According to research by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)1, consumer electronics enthusiasts are excited for the holiday season. Consumer electronics continue to top holiday wish lists, with nearly 80% of adults and 84% of teens desiring the latest technology. Just in time for the shopping season, iharmonix’s high-fidelity stereo earphones offer iPhone, BlackBerry, iPod and MP3 owners an affordable, sleek and quality option for enjoying their favorite tunes and holding phone calls.
The Platinum Series consists of three models. The i-Series for iPhone 3G and BlackBerry users has an in-line microphone for voice calls and features a multi-function button to send and end phone calls, as well as pause music. The ev-Series model offers an in-line volume control for iPod and MP3 player owners. The e-Series is a streamlined version without in-line controls. The 11mm drivers and neodymium magnets in all three products provide dynamic sound and bass, and the brushed stainless steel front housing and polished gun-metal alloy rear casing offer a sleek and sophisticated appearance.
The Style FX Series comes in two stylish offerings: the i-Series for iPhone 3G and BlackBerry smartphones and the e-Series for iPod and MP3 players. This product line delivers a high performance sound and is housed in a stylish white casing, with a price point appealing to teens and young adults.
