Chicago, IL (August 13, 2009)–Sensaphonics has announced the availability of field-replaceable cables for its ProPhonic 2X-S and 2MAX dual-driver custom earphones.
“Experience shows that the cable assembly is the most vulnerable part of any earphone,” comments Sensaphonics president and founder, Dr. Michael Santucci. “By converting to a field-replaceable design, Sensaphonics users will have far greater assurance that they will never have to do a show without their earphones.”
Designed by Sensaphonics Japan, the new cables are a tour-grade, dual-conductor design, featuring a memory-wire insert at the earpiece end and a split adjuster (zipper) to reportedly ensure a secure fit behind the head. Users may specify either matte silver or black, in lengths of 52 or 60 inches.
The new cable is secured to each earpiece with a nylon screw, eliminating any chance of it being accidentally pulled out. “Offering a field-replaceable cable for our soft silicone earpieces was always a goal,” notes Santucci, “but we knew any friction-based system would be a poor compromise. We developed this approach for our 3D Active Ambient earphones, and user response was so positive that we decided to develop a similar version for the ProPhonic 2X-S and 2MAX as well.”
The new field-replaceable cables are now in production, and are included as standard on all new ProPhonic 2X-S and 2MAX earphones; pricing remains unchanged. The original integrated cable and Sensaphonics’ breakaway cable assemblies will remain available upon request.
