Panasonic Introduces WINGS™ BTS Series Digital Wireless Sport Headphones

Bluetooth 3D Flex Sport Clip Headphones Designed to Provide Optimal Comfort & Freedom - Even During High Impact Activities

Jan 05, 2016, 13:46 ET from Panasonic

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Panasonic announced today the debut of the WINGS® BTS line of Bluetooth® sports type wireless headphones at CES 2016. WINGS® BTS high-performance sports headphones were developed for athletes who want to enjoy music even during intense workouts. Pricing and availability will be announced at a later date.

The series features two models -- the WINGS® BTS50 (white, black versions) and WINGS® BTS30 (white, black, yellow, and red versions) and feature 3D-Flex Sports Clips. The new ear hook loops are made of a flexible material so they can be bent by the fingers into the desired shape, thus fitting the wearer's ears perfectly and staying in place even during vigorous activity.

The Blue Edge LEDs located on the edge sections of the BTS50 model add style and visibility when worn at night. The BTS50 is water resistant with an IPX5-rated rugged, waterproof shield, so the headphones can be washed with water after use to remove sweat and dirt. The BTS30 model is also water resistant with an IPX4 rating. Both can also be worn rain or shine.

The WINGS® BTS Series supports Quick Charge using the supplied USB cable. By charging the battery for only 15 minutes, the headphones provide 70 minutes of use. Fully charged, the headphones provide up to 6 hours of playback. This is especially convenient when the user forgets to charge the battery in advance.

The WINGS® BTS Series incorporates advanced technologies to provide high-quality sound for maximum musical enjoyment. The BTS50 is equipped with 12-mm drivers (9-mm drivers for the BTS30) and supports aptX and AAC. A flat cable is used which fits comfortably behind the ears, dramatically reducing touch noise and delivering clear, crisp, dynamic sound.
