BlueAnt ready to rock and roll with first wired headset, the Embrace
BlueAnt’s signature is their range of wireless devices, more often than not using Bluetooth technology to have them “talk” to other compatible devices while eliminating the presence of wires in your life. Well, perhaps the boffins over at BlueAnt figured out that there is a market for wired devices, which is why the Embrace headset that has already started shipping is the first BlueAnt wired device.
First of all, the Embrace stereo headphones are said to reproduce the full audio detail and range faithfully as the artist intended, without having to manipulate or enhance the bass and treble. According to David Hogan, CEO of BlueAnt, “Enhancing our customers’ mobile entertainment and digital lifestyle experience is our highest priority. We are breaking new ground by leveraging BlueAnt’s heritage in voice-centric products to bring the highest audio quality at an affordable price to the world of stereo headphones. Whether at home, at work, at play or in-transit, EMBRACE is the perfect companion for users wanting versatility and the absolute best sound.”
The on-ear Embrace will still give users a healthy degree of control, as they are able to choose and adjust EQ settings over their personal compatible device to match their preferences. The Embrace is said to come with an integrated in-line remote control that makes music playback volume control a snap, while the microphone enables you to switch between listening to music or watching a video to attending to an incoming call – hands-free, of course.
With conforming ear pads thrown into the mix, you more or less get a noise-isolating seal that will block out unwanted background noise. Since it has a standard 3.5mm audio jack, it ought to play nice with most portable media players out there. Apart from that, the headphones will also be accompanied by an OMTP adapter, where it further expands support for the microphone and remote.
Each $199.99 purchase of the BlueAnt Embrace will come with a 1-year limited warranty. Any takers?
