DENVER, CO, October 6, 2017 – Acoustic Research®, the esteemed audio company with more than 60 years of innovation, advanced technology development, and outstanding designs that complement consumers’ lifestyles, today announced its first hi-resolution in-ear earphones, the AR-E100 and AR-E10.
Like the over-ear headphones that Acoustic Research introduced earlier this year, the AR-E10 (pictured left) and AR-E100 are serious, audiophile-grade offerings that are targeted at more demanding music lovers. Both models are being shown for the first time at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver, Colorado, Oct. 6- 8.
“Acoustic Research has a long history of creating high-performance consumer audio products that are widely considered to be best in class, in terms of both performance and aesthetics,” said Sebastien Manenc, Senior Vice President, Asia, Voxx International Corporation, parent company of Acoustic Research. “The AR-E100 and AR-E10 both live up to the best of AR’s legacy.”
The AR-E100 features a 10mm Beryllium dynamic driver. Frequency response is measured at 20-40kHz, with sensitivity rated at 98dB/mV at 1kHz, and nominal impedance at 32 ohms.
The AR-E10, meanwhile, touts a hybrid acoustic module made up of an 8mm Beryllium dynamic driver and a proprietary balanced armature driver. Frequency response is measured at 20- 40kHz, with sensitivity rated at 95dB/mV at 1kHz, and nominal impedance at 25 ohms.
Total harmonic distortion on each model is less than 1% and each comes with a 2-pin, interchangeable cable interface. They also come complete with essential accessories, including a 1.2m unbalanced audio cable (3.5mm 3-pole), a Bluetooth AptX neckband, replaceable earphone sleeves, and a carry pouch for easy storage and portability. In addition, the E10 includes a 1.2m balanced audio cable (4.4mm 5-pole).
The AR-E10 and AR-E100 are scheduled to ship in December at suggested retail prices of $249 and $149, respectively. Both models will be available through the Acoustic Research website and select dealers.
