The range features High Performance Sound Isolating Earphones, Performance Tuned Earphones and Bluetooth® Headphones. The addition of a Bluetooth® Mobile Speaker completes the new audio line-up, which has already received positive recognition from independent audio reviewers.
High Performance Sound Isolating Earphones
(Product references: 44400 in silver / 44401 gold)
Consumers can now experience improved audio quality with Verbatim’s High Performance Sound Isolating Earphones. With a stylish aluminium housing available in silver or gold and using a 10mm driver, the earphones deliver high frequency clarity, dynamic mid-tones and rich powerful bass without sacrificing any of the subtle details, with an impedance of only 16 Ohms and a sensitivity of 96db [.] 1kHz. In addition to a tangle-free cable, the in-line remote and microphone allow you to navigate your playlist and answer phone calls. To lessen the impact of noisy surroundings when listening to music, the earphones come with silicone tips in three sizes to ensure a snug and comfortable fit.
Oscar Stewart of SoundPerfectionReviews.com, a reputable blog dedicated to independent audio equipment reviews, comments: “These earphones provide a well-balanced sound, with a mid-bass boost that would please most listeners, and helps retain body when in louder environments.”
He adds: “The lows never become overbearing, the mids have good clarity and separation. The highs have air and extension that would put many an earphone in this price range to shame. Very impressive. Everything is there in a comfortable, non-fatiguing, wallet-friendly package.”
Performance Tuned Earphones (Product reference: 44402)
With its 9.2mm speaker drivers, Verbatim’s Performance Tuned Earphones provide an impedance of 3 Ohms and a sensitivity of 92db [.] 1kHz. The earphones deliver fully balanced sound across a wide frequency range with extra emphasis at the low end to present the deep bass of pulsing and rhythmic dance music with appropriate punch and realism.
The earphones are also available with three silicone tips to provide a good degree of sound isolation. The angled design of the earphone housing also enhances comfort, making them easier to fit and remain in place for longer or more active listening sessions. The earphones are stylish with a black earpiece chassis. The 4mm wide cable, slightly flattened compared to traditional headphone cables, reduces tangles and encourages the cabling to hang straight.
Bluetooth® Headphones (Product reference: 44403)
Verbatim’s new Bluetooth® Headphones keep you wire-free when listening to your favourite music or TV show from a Bluetooth® enabled device. Just 4 hours of charging provides over 20 hours of continuous music playback. Equipped with powerful 40mm neodymium drivers, the lightweight headphones deliver a fully textured sound with delicate crisp highs, precise smooth mids and generous warm lows. With an efficient 32 ohms impedance and sensitivity of 96db [.] 1kHz, the headphones are sensitive enough to provide a good response without any dedicated amplification. Soft padded ear cups create a good seal and comfortable fit.
“Verbatim has done a good job with the highs, always present in perfect quantity. The mids are very good. The lows are very tight and articulate,” observes Oscar Stewart.
Bluetooth® Mobile Speaker (Product reference: 44404)
Verbatim also introduces a stylish portable wireless speaker that delivers a far better audio experience than is possible from your smartphone, tablet or notebook device. Just 2.5 hours of charging gives over 8 hours of continuous music playback. The palm-sized Bluetooth® Mobile Speaker packs a considerable punch considering it weighs just 257g. Housed in an attractive aluminium enclosure, the compact speaker is robust and impresses with a rich, deep sound that keeps its shape even at max volume. It provides balanced audio ideal for playback of music, TV or films and a microphone for hands free telephone calls the perfect companion for business trips or family holidays.
