2014 INTERNATIONAL CES
Two new models for the spring feature sleek designs, offer powerful performance
January 6, 2014 (Las Vegas, NV) – Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company today announced the introduction of two new headphone models which will be added to the company’s extensive lineup of existing models. The new RP-HC800 Noise Cancelling Headphones and the new RP-BTD10 Bluetooth Wireless Headphones offer superior sound quality and sleek, modern designs to make a statement. The new 2014 headphones will be on display at 2014 International CES in the Panasonic booth #9806, located in Las Vegas Convention Center’s Central Hall. The new Panasonic headphone models are now available for preorder on www.shop.panasonic.com.
The Panasonic RP-HC800 Noise Cancelling Headphones utilize a high performance Active Noise Cancelling System with improved Feed-back Noise Cancelling Technology for a wide-range noise cancellation effect. Expertly crafted with a sophisticated design that fuses durable plastic with metal finishes, the RP-HC800 Headphones feature a wide padded headband and cushioned ear cups for a comfortable fit even after hours of wear. The detachable cord features a microphone and controller for the iPhone/iPad/iPod so users can quickly switch between music and phone calls with the touch of a button. One AAA Alkaline battery provides up to 40 hours of noise cancellation use and, unlike other noise cancelling headphone models, the Panasonic RP-HC800 Headphones can still be used for music playback even if the batteries have run out of juice.
The new Panasonic RP-BTD10 Bluetooth Wireless Headphones offer users a cordless headphone option featuring a sleek, sophisticated design concept and excellent sound quality with 40mm driver unit. The RP-BTD10 Bluetooth Wireless Headphones are equipped with Near Field Communication (NFC) to easily pair with compatible products to establish a wireless Bluetooth connection and incorporate aptX for HiFi sound transmission and less transfer delay which creates richer sound playback when viewing videos on a tablet device. High-quality metal housing accents offer an edgy design with modern functionality and raised playback buttons on the earcup allow for easy, blind operation. A rechargeable lithium ion battery allows for approximately 40 hours of playback time.
The new Panasonic headphones will be available in April 2014 and are now available for preorder on www.shop.panasonic.com. For additional information, please visit the Panasonic CES website, www.Panasonic.com/CES, or www.adventure.panasonic.com.
