CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NOX Audio is bringing its audio uprising to this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) with the help of the Grammy Award-winning artist T-Pain, who will make an appearance in the NOX booth during the convention. One of music's biggest names, T-Pain is now the official spokesperson for NOX's Admiral line of headsets, the highly-anticipated wireless, surround-sound products NOX unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this year.
T-Pain is widely known by music fans thanks to hits such as "Buy U a Drank," "Best Love Song," "Can't Believe It" and "Bartender," as well as for his collaborations with some of music's most popular artists, including Justin Timberlake, Kanye West and Lil Wayne. T-Pain even showed his comedic side, entertaining audiences when he stepped out of the box to collaborate with comedy troupe The Lonely Island. The artist became part of a pop-culture cult classic when his collaboration with Lonely Island, "I'm on a Boat," skyrocketed to success on Saturday Night Live and lit up the internet.
"Music is my life; I'm constantly working with new technologies and products, and I consider myself a tech-savvy guy," said T-Pain. "NOX's Admiral product line is awesome for all types of audio lovers, and the headsets are the kind of thing I would buy for myself."
Featuring Dolby Digital 7.1 Surround Sound and Bluetooth functionality, the Admiral is expected to be a one-of-a-kind headset, peerless in terms of connectivity and usability. NOX also is developing an upgraded model, the Admiral Touch, which will boast both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capability along with a built-in LCD touchscreen powered by the Android operating system (OS) – a first in the audio industry.
"Bringing T-Pain on board to be an official part of the Admiral launch is a key part of NOX's audio revolution," said Julie Ma, president of NOX Audio. "His legendary status as a performer and in the recording industry overall makes him a perfect match for the Admiral – the most advanced and ground-breaking headset line yet."
The Admiral Touch will support applications and gesture controls to create an immersive gaming and home theater experience. The standard Admiral headset can be upgraded to the Admiral Touch at any time by purchasing an easy-to-install upgrade Touch module.
NOX will feature a working prototype at E3 2011 in the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center, booth 5706, shown by appointment only. NOX's other products, the Specialist, Negotiator and Scout, will be available in listening stations on the show floor. NOX also will host an appearance by T-Pain at E3 on Tuesday, June 7 at 3 p.m. PT in the NOX booth, with guest DJ's spinning at other times throughout the duration of the convention. Qualified press can schedule an appointment to demo the Admiral by contacting Racheal Caswell at Wonacott Communications (firstname.lastname@example.org).
