BALTIMORE, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Polk today announced the Nue Era headphones, a new audio accessory designed for fashionistas and audiophiles alike. Jewel-like in design with understated details, the in-ear headphones provide the rich and immersive sound Polk has finely tuned over the past 40 years, but with a modern twist that's suited to those who love music—and just as equally value their personal style.

"Headphones are an extension of our personality and a reflection of our fashion, however there haven't been options that capture the timeless, easy-to-wear, vintage American style," said Michael DiTullo, Chief Design Officer. "In designing the Nue Era, we wanted to create an accessory that felt more like a classic pair of sunglasses, as easy as your favorite pair of jeans, and as well-crafted as a vintage timepiece. This inspiration has resulted in a headphone that is meant to be shown off, even when you want to keep your music all to yourself."

Attention to detail is reflected in all aspects of the Nue Era's design, such as its small sculpted housing, finished in sleek tortoise and champagne gold, or black and silver. The headphone's supple ear tips, provided in different sizes and shapes, have been co-molded to the headphone ear tube for ultimate comfort, while an intuitive three-button cable ensures easy toggling between music and phone calls. The cable's gold plated, 90-degree connector is precision machined for a deeper source connection, and combined with Polk's signature Dynamic Balance® driver, results in a rich audio experience, no matter where your music takes you.

Nue Era will retail for $99, available now at www.polkaudio.com.
