STAMFORD, Conn., July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, announces the availability of great-sounding home headphones with unprecedented comfort and convenience.
The most noticeable feature of the JBL WR2.4 headphones is a thing that is missing: the cord. Listeners will enjoy untethered freedom to move, as they enjoy JBL's signature great sound. These wireless headphones give the user a generous 100 feet (30 meters) of reception range. Built-in rechargeable batteries extend freedom from the AC outlet, as well, with over eight hours of continuous playtime.
"We've married premium audio for your TV, home theater, MP3 player, DVD or cable box with the freedom you've always enjoyed with room-filling stereo systems," said Michael Mauser, President HARMAN Lifestyle. "These headphones deliver the carefully-crafted listening experience we're famous for, without tying you down with cables."
Wireless convenience would be nothing without comfort, and the JBL WR2.4s are designed for both. Lightweight, with generously sized padded cups and a fully adjustable headband, these wireless phones can be worn for extended periods without fatigue.
Trusted by musicians for delivering a consistent and crisp acoustic performance, JBL engineers have designed the WR2.4 headphones with semi-closed back acoustics for naturally enhanced sound quality throughout their 18 Hz to 20 kHz sound range. The uncompromising 2.4 GHz digital bandwidth ensures reception untainted by transmission noise, and the 32-ohm impedance enables a wide range of listening volumes.
JBL WR2.4 headphones come with two rechargeable AAA batteries, a pick-up-and-go charging cradle and power adapter; and a 3.5 mm stereo to dual RCA audio cable for connecting your audio system to the transmitter base.
