LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CES 2016 Tech West (Sands Expo) – Phāz Music, the leader in headphones specifically designed for mobile devices and pioneers of patented "charge while you listen technology," announced today the first-ever universal digital headphones – the Phāz Model P5 Digital Headphones and Phāz Model Z1 Digital EarBuds. Compatible with both Android and iOS devices, both products will be on display during CES® 2016 Tech West at Sands Expo (booth #82533) and Pepcom Digital Experience.
Phāz Music is on a mission to transform the way listeners consume audio from today's mobile devices. Mobile devices are the undisputed leading source of music consumption, yet ironically, they often possess low-quality audio components as manufacturers focus more on maximizing battery life, than producing high-quality audio. Phāz Music's products are designed to address this dilemma with built-in technologies that significantly enhance the mobile music listening experience.
The new Phāz Model P5 Digital Headphones and Phāz Model Z1 Digital EarBuds address the inherent audio irony head-on, directly pulling digital audio content from the Micro USB/iOS Lightening data ports on mobile devices into high-quality, on-board digital-to-analog converters and integrated discrete amplifiers. Digital connectivity allows both Android and iOS mobile device users access to high-quality, digital audio right out of the box. This is a critical advancement, in light of the recent news from industry leading mobile device manufacturers to eliminate 3.5mm analog headphone jacks to make way for slimmer device designs.
"Consumers shouldn't have to wait for the mobile device industry to catch up when it comes to audio quality," said David Munzlinger, president of Phāz Music. "Our mission is to give consumers what mobile device manufactures aren't – great audio. By providing consumers with solutions that address the audio shortcomings of their exiting mobile devices, Phāz is also focused on developing innovations that anticipate where the mobile device industry is headed."
Further differentiating itself from the competition, Phāz Music has integrated its patented "charge while you listen technology" into the Model P5 Digital Headphones, allowing listeners to boost their mobile devices' battery by up to 70% when connected. The Model P5 features an internal Lithium Polymer Battery and a power management microprocessor, which delivers 10 hours of active listening.
Acoustically tuned by the sound professionals at JJR Acoustics, the Model P5 headphones present great audio performance. Enhanced by an on-board 24-bit digital-to-analog converter and audiophile-grade HD amplifier powering premium 40mm drivers with neodymium magnets, the P5 headphones offer smooth, consistent sound quality while integrated Active Bass Boost technology gives listeners the ability to customize their experience by switching on extended bass performance. The Model P5 wireless audio operation utilizes Bluetooth 4.0 with CSR aptX® technology, ensuring consumers paired with CSR aptX-enabled mobile devices experience wireless audio quality that rivals sound generated by premium wired headphones.
From a design perspective, a carbon fiber body ensures the P5 headphones are light, durable, and fold easily for compact storage. Cushioned memory foam ear pads add comfort and personality with five interchangeable color options (sold separately) including orange, green, pink and purple. The Model P5 headphones also feature an exclusive active 3.5mm audio output, allowing listeners to share their elevated music experience with a friend.
For consumers looking for compact and versatile earbuds, the Phāz Model Z1 Digital EarBuds make a strong case. Resonate on-the-go audio is available thanks to 9mm premium drivers with neodymium magnets, an integrated 24-bit 96khz digital-to-analog converter and premium chip amplifier. After connecting to a mobile device's data port via Micro USB or provided Micro USB to iOS Lightening adapter, listeners will have no problem seamlessly switching between music and a phone call with the in-line mic and three-button audio control. Multiple silicone in-ear tip sizes give listeners a stylish design with comfortable feel.
The Model P5 Digital Bluetooth Headphones have a target MSRP of $449.99 and will be available in August 2016. The Phāz Model Z1 Digital EarBuds will be available in March 2016 at a target MSRP of $129.99. All product details will be available via PhazMusic.com.
