Blue Unveils Premium Wireless Headphones for 2017
At CES 2017, Blue Microphones will debut Satellite, the first headphone that brings true audiophile sound to the wireless listening experience. Satellite features a built-in audiophile amp and two separate pairs of drivers to ensure the high-fidelity experience is never compromised. Satellite’s sophisticated design was engineered for superior performance, comfort and sound isolation, while achieving ultimate portability with foldable construction. Together with Bluetooth 4.1 wireless technology and Apt-X connectivity, Satellite is a new benchmark for the modern listening experience.
“Satellite bridges the gap between high-fidelity sound and portable listening, making it possible to enjoy a true audiophile experience anywhere,” said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones. “Traditional noise-cancelling headphones use one pair of drivers for both audio and ANC, which compromises your sound quality. Satellite uses separate, dedicated ANC drivers so that our dedicated audio drivers and audiophile amp can deliver high-fidelity sound for no-compromise wireless listening.”
Satellite’s unparalleled wireless listening experience is made possible by its powered design, which utilizes a built-in, all-analog audiophile amplifier to deliver a hi-fi experience via any phone, mobile device or laptop. Satellite’s proprietary amp is perfectly paired with Blue’s premium, custom-tuned 44mm ultra-responsive dynamic drivers to deliver every detail of your music with clarity and punch. Satellite makes Blue’s acclaimed headphone experience even more portable with a smaller form factor and wireless connectivity so you can enjoy high-fidelity audiophile performance everywhere.
Satellite is the only headphone that eliminates unwanted noise without compromising your music. Instead of using one pair of drivers for both audio and ANC, Satellite incorporates two separate drivers in each earcup—one dedicated to high-fidelity audio, and one dedicated to noise cancelling. This proprietary design eliminates noise without degrading sound quality so you can enjoy a high-fidelity listening experience free from the distractions of your environment.
Satellite’s sophisticated design offers superior performance, sound isolation and comfort. The precision acoustic ear cups present a rich and detailed sound stage, contributing to the finely tuned sonic experience. The compact form factor folds down and slips into the provided protective carrying case for easy portability and storage. Satellite comes with a three meter audio cable for conveniently connecting to mobile devices or vintage audio gear. Three all-analog amp modes—including OFF, ON, and ON+—allow listeners to activate the onboard amplifier, and restore the missing low end to vinyl-era music.
Satellite will be available for hands-on demo at CES 2017 at the Blue booth in South Hall 1, #21236. Satellite is coming to retailers in 2017. For more information visit: www.bluemic.com/satellite.
