Bose QuietComfort® 45 – Perfect Balance of Silence, Comfort, and Superior Sound

Love at first listen. This is what you will feel when you put them on. Because the brand’s new headphones offer a listening experience out of the ordinary thanks to their high fidelity sound, their great comfort and the silence they are capable of generating.

Wireless and ergonomic, bring the noise cancellation technology Acoustic Noise Canceling TM with two modes Silent and alert, active equalization optimized according to the volume and TriPort architecture for a high – fidelity sound, along with a range of up to 24 hours.

November 2021.- BOSE , a leading company in the development and manufacture of audio products and technologies, has just introduced its Bose QuietComfort® 45 headphones .

And all this using bluetooth 5.1 technology, which gives them a stable and quality wireless connection of up to 9 meters.

It looks like magic, but it isn’t

It all starts with technology Acoustic Noise Canceling TM , which is the result of over 50 years of research by Bose. This is based on tiny microphones hidden in the headphones that constantly measure, compare and react to outside noise. That noise is then canceled out by emitting an opposite signal, resulting in fewer distractions so you can enjoy your music.

This technology is activated thanks to the button that is incorporated into the left earphone, which allows you to choose: the “Silent” mode , when complete noise cancellation is required; or the “Alert” mode , which allows you to hear what is happening in the environment thanks to the microphones that pick up the sound that is produced around the listener, reproducing itself naturally through the headphones and at a much more balanced and pleasant volume.

Intuitive controls

In addition to the noise cancellation button, these headphones have other controls. In this way, the multifunction button has been arranged on the right helmet, with which it is possible to pause or start playback, answer and end calls and even access the default virtual assistant of the mobile phone. The other buttons located on either side of this are the ones that allow you to control the volume and are located in an intuitive vertical orientation, up and down.

High fidelity sound

Music, podcasts and videos. Any content that the user chooses to listen to will have exclusive technologies from the company, such as, for example, the TriPort acoustic architecture and the optimized equalization according to the volume to produce content with high fidelity sound.

Specifically, the patented TriPort design aerates the shells to add depth and punch to the sound without increasing the size. Therefore, better sound is obtained with headphones that are smaller (18.4 × 15.24 × 7.62 cm), lighter (0.24 kg) and more comfortable. Plus, volume- optimized EQ boosts treble and bass to continue to deliver the same high-fidelity performance, no matter how loud you are. For its part, the bass remains powerful at a lower volume and the music is heard clearly at a higher volume.

Clearer conversations outdoors

With the addition of a fourth external microphone, the improved voice pickup of these headphones is assured, being the best in its class. Everything happens in real time, giving you the confidence of knowing your voice will sound clear, even in windy and noisy situations.

Comfort in detail

An incredible listening experience demands a level of comfort to match. That’s why these headphones continue to offer great value by focusing on every smallest detail.

Listen longer

This new model of headphones offers more playtime than its predecessors, providing up to 24 hours on a single charge. Everything the user needs to listen to music and enjoy calm, even during the longest trips. They can also be used by plugging them into the accompanying 3.5mm audio cable.

Finally, the Bose QuietComfort® 45 are available in black and smoke white and are marketed together with a carrying case, a USB-C type cable, and the aforementioned audio cable.

Bose QuietComfort® 45 RRP : 349 euros (VAT included)

Headphones Intraurales True Wireless Worthing | Bowers & Wilkins PI7 y PI5

New Bowers & Wilkins PI7 and PI5 Bring True Sound to True Wireless In-Ear Headphones Worthing, England, April 2021: True Wireless (TWS) In-Ear Headphones are immensely popular, but most designs currently available represent the fruit of a commitment to the one whose sound quality is sacrificed in favor of wireless convenience. Bowers & Wilkins has always insisted that this problem should be corrected before it could consider
launching its own TWS products.

Now, after a long period of development, Bowers & Wilkins is proud to bring two new products that carry the brand’s celebrated promise of True Sound with absolute performance into the True Wireless Intraaural Headphone category. Both the PI7 and PI5 offer all the sound quality that music lovers should expect from a Bowers & Wilkins signed product combined with a wide range of practical and smart features, extreme transparency on phone calls and a design as beautiful as exclusive.

Two new and impressive models

PI7
Available in White and Charcoal
RRP: € 399 €

PI5
Available in White and Charcoal
RRP: € 399 €

The reference model is the PI7, equipped with the wireless transmission system from Qualcomm aptX Adaptive compatible mobile devices, which allows listening to high-resolution music via streaming from services such as Qobuz. The PI7s accompany this “Hi-Res” compatibility with a 24-bit / 48 kHz wireless transmission between helmet and helmet. Together, these two technologies make the PI7 one of the very few True Wireless headphones that support high-resolution audio all the way from the music source to the user’s ears.

In addition, while the enclosure of each of the PI7’s headphones is compact enough to fit comfortably in the ear, these headphones exhibit technical characteristics that are
remarkably close to those of an advanced conventional loudspeaker. Each hull incorporates a custom-made 9.2 mm diameter transducer by Bowers & Wilkins that is complemented by a “balanced shell” type dedicated exclusively to high frequencies, each of the four transducers in the system being excited by its own amplifier. This setup ensures exceptional control, superlative dynamics, and deep, accurate bass.

The PI7s also include Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) to monitor and analyze your environment so that it can automatically adapt to it, ensuring the best possible listening experience. This system is complemented by six microphones – three on each helmet to guarantee crystal clear sound quality for phone calls. The PI7s are accompanied by the equally new PI5s, which utilize TWS + technology for robust, high-quality sync between hulls, coupled with the use of a single custom-made 9.2mm full-range transducer by Bowers. & Wilkins on each helmet. The PI5 can reproduce CD quality sound from compatible mobile devices thanks to the inclusion of the aptX high quality wireless audio transmission system.

Intelligent Functions Both the PI7 and the PI5 can be configured through the Bowers & Wilkins Headphones App, as well as including a simple user interface formed by a single button –capacitive type and that allows to perform multiple tasks in a simple and elegant way- and support for voice control via Apple Siri or Google Assistant depending on the connected device.

Likewise, it is possible to wirelessly synchronize – pair – multiple devices to each model, thus allowing the user to reconnect easily and comfortably to each source – for example, switching from listening to music on a phone to an online conference on a phone. laptop according to your needs.

Advertisements

Finally, both models offer the convenience of a wireless recharge compatible with a wide range of accessories, as well as boxes / charging cases that can recharge the battery of each helmet when it has been depleted. The PI5s will work for four and a half hours before requiring a recharge, while for the PI7s this autonomy is four hours. From that moment on, the respective charging boxes will provide up to four full recharges to each helmet, so the user will have guaranteed entertainment for long hours. In this sense, the PI7s offer a genuinely unique feature that will make even the longest journeys more bearable:

Both full specifications and images for each product – in all finishes – are available on the Bowers & Wilkins Hub. Available from April 21, the PI7 and PI5 aim to achieve the same impact in the TWS category previously achieved by the celebrated and award-winning Bowers & Wilkins headphones. The company has taken the time to create its first True Wireles Intraaural Headphones, but we think the result has been worth the wait.

Apple introduces AirPods Max, the magic of AirPods in a stunning over-ear design

AirPods Max feature incredible high-fidelity audio, Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, and spatial audio

AirPods Max bring the magic of AirPods to an all-new wireless over-ear design with high-fidelity audio, Active Noise Cancellation, spatial audio, and more.
Cupertino, California — Apple today announced AirPods Max, innovative wireless headphones that bring the magic of AirPods to an over-ear design with high-fidelity sound. AirPods Max combine a custom acoustic design, H1 chips, and advanced software to power computational audio for a breakthrough listening experience with Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and spatial audio. AirPods Max come in five gorgeous colors, including space gray, silver, sky blue, green, and pink, and are available to order starting today, with availability beginning Tuesday, December 15.
“AirPods are the most popular headphones in the world, beloved for their effortless setup, incredible sound quality, and iconic design. With AirPods Max, we are bringing that magical AirPods experience to a stunning over-ear design with high-fidelity audio,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The custom acoustic design, combined with powerful H1 chips, and advanced software enable AirPods Max to use computational audio to wirelessly deliver the ultimate personal listening experience.”

Custom Acoustic Design

From the canopy to the ear cushions, every part of AirPods Max is carefully crafted to provide exceptional acoustic performance for each user. The breathable knit mesh canopy, spanning the headband, is made to distribute weight and reduce on-head pressure. The stainless steel headband frame provides strength, flexibility, and comfort for a wide variety of head shapes and sizes. Telescoping headband arms smoothly extend and stay in place to maintain the desired fit.
Each ear cup attaches to the headband through a revolutionary mechanism that balances and distributes ear cup pressure, and allows it to independently pivot and rotate to fit the unique contours of a user’s head. Each ear cushion uses acoustically engineered memory foam to create an effective seal — a critical factor in delivering immersive sound. The Digital Crown, inspired by Apple Watch, offers precise volume control and the ability to play or pause audio, skip tracks, answer or end phone calls, and activate Siri.

Breakthrough Listening Experience

AirPods Max feature a 40-mm Apple-designed dynamic driver that provides rich, deep bass, accurate mid-ranges, and crisp, clean high-frequency extension so every note can be heard. A unique dual neodymium ring magnet motor allows AirPods Max to maintain total harmonic distortion of less than 1 percent across the entire audible range, even at maximum volume.1 Equipped with an Apple-designed H1 chip in each ear cup, a custom acoustic design, and advanced software, AirPods Max use computational audio to deliver the highest quality listening experience possible. Utilizing each of the chips’ 10 audio cores — capable of 9 billion operations per second — computational audio powers a breakthrough listening experience that includes Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and spatial audio.
AirPods Max custom acoustic design features a 40-mm dynamic driver and a unique dual neodymium ring magnet motor.
  • Adaptive EQ: AirPods Max use Adaptive EQ to adjust the sound to the fit and seal of the ear cushions by measuring the sound signal delivered to a user and adjusting the low and mid-frequencies in real time — bringing rich audio that captures every detail.
  • Active Noise Cancellation: AirPods Max deliver immersive sound through Active Noise Cancellation so users can focus on what they are listening to. Each ear cup features three outward-facing microphones to detect environmental noise, while one microphone inside the ear cup monitors the sound reaching the listener’s ear. Using computational audio, noise cancellation continuously adapts to the headphone fit and movement in real time.
  • Transparency Mode: With AirPods Max, users can switch to Transparency mode to simultaneously listen to music while hearing the environment around them — ensuring everything, including a user’s own voice, sounds natural while audio plays perfectly. Switching between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode can be done with a single press using the noise control button.
  • Spatial Audio: AirPods Max use spatial audio with dynamic head tracking to place sounds virtually anywhere in a space — delivering an immersive, theaterlike experience for content recorded in 5.1, 7.1, and Dolby Atmos. Using the gyroscope and accelerometer in AirPods Max and iPhone or iPad, spatial audio tracks the motion of a user’s head as well as the device, compares the motion data, then remaps the sound field so it stays anchored to the device, even as the user’s head moves.

The Magic of AirPods

AirPods Max join the existing AirPods family in delivering unparalleled wireless audio, whether a customer is listening to music, making phone calls, enjoying TV shows and movies, playing games, or interacting with Siri. The magical setup experience customers love with today’s AirPods and AirPods Pro extends to AirPods Max with one-tap setup, followed by automatic pairing with all the devices signed in to a user’s iCloud account, including iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.
AirPods Max automatically detect when they are on a user’s head using the optical and position sensors. Once in place, AirPods Max play audio and can pause once removed or when the user simply lifts one ear cup. With AirPods Max, voice calls and Siri commands are crisp and clear due to beam-forming microphones that block out ambient noise and focus on the user’s voice.
AirPods Max feature the magical one-tap setup experience that customers love with AirPods.

Battery and Performance

AirPods Max feature great battery life with up to 20 hours of high-fidelity audio, talk time, or movie playback with Active Noise Cancellation and spatial audio enabled.2
AirPods Max come with a soft, slim Smart Case that puts AirPods Max in an ultralow power state that helps to preserve battery charge when not in use.

Bang Olufsen Rev eals Stunning 88 i n ch Beovision Harmony TV

“Today, we are bringing together the best of artisanship and the bleeding edge of display technology. Our customers tell us that they want the ultimate in cinematic and immersive experiences with a design that adds to the décor rather than disrupts it. This is exactly what we are bringing to the market with our new two-meter-wide Beovision Harmony powered by stellar Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound and the world’s first 88-inch 8K OLED TV”, says Christoffer Østergaard Poulsen, Vice President of Product Management at Bang & Olufsen. Beovision Harmony was originally unveiled at Milan Design week in 2019 as a meaningful combination of art and technology, where the TV folds down into a sculptural shape when not in use.

The two oak and aluminium covers partially obscures the black screen, and when the TV is turned on, the panels fan out like a butterfly opening its wings, and the screen rises above them to the perfect viewing height. The ultimate experience for movies and sports The two-meter-wide Beovision Harmony TV comes with the 2020 OLED 8K display from LG Electronics optimized for Bang & Olufsen, which allowsfor the full Bang & Olufsen cinematic experience. With an 8K resolution, delivering four times more detail than 4K TV and 16 times more than HDTV, it is designed to deliver stunning picture quality, upgraded performance and artificial intelligence-enabled features that brings movies and sports to life like never before imagined. At the heart of the TV are several advanced core technologies, most notably the new α (Alpha) 9 Gen 3 AI Processor.

This advanced processor leverages upgraded processing power and artificial intelligence deep learning algorithms to improve on the picture quality and enable a host of specialized features for various types of content. As for the sound, along with the pre-installed three-channel sound system and built-in dual subwoofer, the TV is compatible with Bang & Olufsen’s speaker program, allowing one to connect up to eight wireless Beolab speakers for true 7.1 surround sound. All sources can be controlled with the Beoremote One, a remote crafted from a single piece of extruded aluminium that adds well to the luxury experience.

Exclusive finishes and bespoke solutions Along with the existing speaker cover choice of oak wood and natural aluminium, two more options have recently been added to the Beovision Harmony. Warm brasstone aluminium has been combined with smoked oak and bronze tone aluminium with walnut. The new finishes will be matching the Beolab 50 and Beolab 90 finish options, creating a visual coherence between the products when included in a complete home cinema experience. Finally, a full customisation of finish on Beovision Harmony, Beolab 50 and Beolab 90 is available for clients who wish to own something totally unique.

Pricing and availability Beovision Harmony including the LG 8K 88-inch OLED ZX TV optimized for Bang & Olufsen is estimated to retail from EUR 46,500 EUR / GBP 44,100 / CHF 53,400 / USD 49,000 / DKK 352,000 and will be available in Bang & Olufsen stores from the end of June 2020.

This was a milestone listening experience, one of those events when you can hear the paradigm shifting. Interestingly, although the new WAMM is going to raise the price of Wilson’s flagship model substantially, it will still be short of being the most expensive speaker in the world. But then, with performance like this, expense is secondary.

 Roy Gregory, The Audio Beat

It’s About Time

This video previews the long awaited WAMM, Master Chronosonic™, Dave Wilson’s Magnum Opus. Nearly five years of research, development, and thought have gone into the new WAMM. Now, as a preface to its launch in a few months, we offer up this small homage to Dave, a visionary who has indelibly changed the way we all think about music and its reproduction.

Drivers

  • Daryl Wilson and Wilson’s team of engineers recently concluded another round of research and development into tweeter technology.
  • Wilson’s MTM configurations, which feature time-domain adjustability, have always been far more sophisticated
  • Unlike the original WAMM, which required a subwoofer to cover the bottom octaves, the Master Chronosonic is a true full-range design.

Enclosure Materials

Most loudspeaker manufacturers are content with building enclosures from medium-density fiberboard—a material originally used in the construction of tract-home sub floors. In contrast, Wilson has spent the last several decades researching and developing cutting-edge composites.

Perfection comes from making complex things look simple and effortless. Does the semi-active ZERO TA reflect the many challenges that our engineers needed to master?

No, and that’s a good thing! Because the globally awarded cabinet design of the ZERO product line simply is: perfect. And so it was never put to question that we would take every effort necessary to create just one thought, when listening to the ZERO TA: perfect.

Avantgarde Acoustic Hornloudspeaker

Those loudspeakers are incredible and acclaimed by all their listeners!

BELHiFi Award!

More integrated, compact and simple and yet a veritable horn loudspeaker—to the very last decibel. The ZERO 1 is a dream come true — one that we have shared with many music lovers for over twenty years. Though fascinated, moved and amazed by our larger acoustic transducers we have always longed for a more compact horn loudspeaker to make the incomparable experience of Avantgarde Acoustic accessible to a wider audience of audio enthusiasts.

The master gilders at Ateliers Gohard finished the Phantom’s gold leaf side plates following time-honored methods. Each gold leaf is applied by hand to create a unique patina. And these heritage techniques demand absolute perfection—once the leaf has been applied, it cannot be removed. Bearing the Phantom Reactor Opéra de Paris | Devialet signature, the side plates are gilded with Moon Gold, a precious and stainless palladium-yellow gold alloy.
