Taking its BE6 earphones as a starting point, Optoma has uneviled its new NuForce BE6i wireless in-ear earphones. Apparently the only Bluetooth in-ear to be fully crafted from aluminium – which is claimed to deliver crystal-clear sound in an elegant lightweight design – the BE6i offers a claimed battery life of up to 8 hours. Bluetooth comes in the superior aptX form, with a range of 30m claimed by Optoma while AAC compatibility is also on hand for superior quality audio streaming.
Each earphone has a 10mm driver, claimed to eliminate unwanted reverberations for distortion-free sound even at high volume levels by using a high-grade titanium, magnesium and inert metal to form a thin nano-layer over its surface. This mixture, along with the help of a circumferential copper ring, allows the driver to maintain optimal structural integrity for distortion-free sound even at high volume levels. The patented driver selected for the BE6i is designed to maintain a constantly accurate impedance curve, resulting in what Optoma describes as improved sound quality from any source. This has the additional benefit of extending battery life.
Optoma informs us that each element of the BE6i's sleek aesthetic directly increases the earphone's sound quality and has been designed to provide a comfortable fit. Five sets of silicone and two sets of Comply soft memory foam ear tips are included so users can find their perfect fit. The NuForce BE6i earphones come in a choice of grey and gold, and are available to buy now for £99.99. Click here to find out more.
