SANTA CLARA, Calif., and COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Libratone introduced Q Adapt In-Ear earbuds, featuring a battery-free design, with active noise cancellation, exclusively for Apple's Lightning connector port. With four levels of noise cancellation, users can select how much of the outside world they want to let into their listening experience, whether it's none at all when stuck on a bustling commuter train, or just enough to remain safe and aware of surroundings while jogging on a busy street.
Created in Copenhagen by leading acoustic and product engineers, the Q Adapt In-Ear earbuds reflect the same principles as Libratone's award-winning line of wireless speakers—stylish design, superior acoustic performance and adaptability. The inspired engineering and design of the Q Adapt In-Ear, with four levels of noise cancellation, allow it to function in countless situations for the on-the-go listener. Users can personalize their soundspace and ensure safer listening, no matter the environment, making it just as easy to reduce as to let in ambient, outside noise. The Q Adapt In-Ear earbuds draw power from Apple's Lightning connector, allowing for its sleek, lightweight, simple design, without the need for a clunky battery pack.
"Just as Libratone's family of speakers have liberated listeners to take their music wherever they choose, Q Adapt, as its name implies, also adapts to how consumers want an even greater level of flexibility that compromises neither style nor sound quality," said Libratone CEO Jan McNair. "Q Adapt continues to broaden our focus, beyond redefining speakers, to meet the needs of today's elastic lifestyle."
Q Adapt In-Ear features a lean, stylish design because it uses the Apple Lightning connector port on an iPhone or iPad as a power source. Libratone eliminates the need for listeners to worry about charging or having to replace batteries in their noise-cancelling earbuds, and anyone on-the-go will never have to hassle with pulling out their iPhone to adjust the volume or noise cancellation settings, change a song, or to even take a call. The dedicated four-button Combox provides one button for volume up; one for volume down; one to toggle between play/pause, skip/back, take/end call, and Siri; and one for the four active noise cancellation settings and talk-through. The earbuds come in four colors – elegant nude, cloudy white, stormy black and rose pink – and feature a soft, fabric-covered cable. They also are equipped with three sizes of interchangeable, uniquely designed, ultra-comfortable rubber earpieces. Fitting more naturally into the ear than plunger-style earbuds or ear-hook designs, these ergonomic earpieces offer maximum acoustic and noise-cancelling performance.
"Music has become so personal," said Libratone President Mike Culver, "and the ability to take it along for the ride, and to safely enjoy it no matter the setting or activity, without the hassles of recharging or dealing with an awkward control, makes the Q Adapt In-Ear the ideal flexible-living music accessory."
The Q Adapt In-Ear earbuds will be available in mid-September for $179 at libratone.com and will ship to customers at the beginning of October.
In early October, Libratone will introduce Q Adapt On-Ear Bluetooth headphones, which like the earbuds, feature four settings of active noise cancellation.
