SANTA CLARA, Calif., and COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Nov. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Libratone introduced the newest addition to its family of meticulously designed acoustic lifestyle products: The Q Adapt On-Ear wireless headphones. Featuring the new, exclusive CityMix™ technology, with four adjustable noise cancellation levels, the Q Adapt gives users complete control over how much external noise they choose to let in, delivered in a lightweight, ergonomic design, with a more stylish, comfortable fit and great sound.
Instead of giving users the standard on/off noise cancellation switch found on typical headphones, the Q Adapt On-Ear allows listeners to more precisely tailor what they hear through the digital signal processor that enables them to select one of CityMix's™ four levels of noise cancellation. Now, music fans can customize their sound, from completely blocking out the racket of a crowded commuter train, to letting in just enough ambient noise, such as a siren or car horn, to stay safe while bicycling, jogging or when on the go.
"Fitting into our users' flexible lifestyle has always been a top priority at Libratone, from the portability of indoor/outdoor speakers to the multiple levels of noise cancellation in our newest headphones," said Libratone CEO Jan McNair. "The Q Adapt On-Ear wireless headphones are the latest in Libratone's portfolio of advanced acoustic lifestyle products, giving users the signature Libratone sound in a distinctive design that looks great everywhere, from the catwalk to the sidewalk."
Q Adapt On-Ear has an easy-to-use touch interface of CityMix™, which enables playback, no matter the scenario. With four built-in microphones, the headphones have full phone connectivity capabilities, so tapping the touch interface with two or more fingers answers or ends a call. The Q Adapt also features Libratone's signature Hush function, which silences the audio in the headphones with a wave of the hand over the ear cups, eliminating the need to take off the headphones to hear anything external. Q Adapt On-Ear is also equipped with proximity sensors that shut down the audio and the adjustable noise cancellation when the user removes the headphones. The Q Adapt On-Ear features Bluetooth + 1 wireless, so two users can share music, check out a podcast, or follow a ball game – all from a single device.
"During our research, we learned that users love the immersive sound of on-ear headphones, but that they also wanted the option of hearing the outside world without having to remove the device," said Libratone President Mike Culver. "We designed both the Q Adapt On-Ear headphones, and the recently released Q Adapt In-Ear earbuds, to liberate on-the-go listeners from having to constantly take off either product when their environment changed. Libratone's adjustable noise cancellation specifically addresses this need – and let's you clearly hear the person next to you when they're complimenting you on your headphones."
The Q Adapt On-Ear Bluetooth wireless headphones are available in Cloudy White or Stormy Black for $249 at www.libratone.com. They can be pre-ordered now and will ship in mid-November.
