Chicago, IL (August 8, 2007)–Sensaphonics Hearing Conservation has unveiled its 2MAX earphones for musicians and engineers. Based on the design of the company’s ProPhonic 2X-S model, the 2MAX features a higher-sensitivity electroacoustical design, earmarking it for use with wireless personal monitor systems.
Based on the same balanced armature drivers that give the 2X-S its high-fidelity sound, the 2MAX features higher sensitivity, resulting in more output at lower volume settings. The maximum output for the two models is identical.
“Basically, the 2MAX is designed to eliminate the differences in system performance between wired and wireless in-ear systems,” notes Sensaphonics president and founder, Michael Santucci. “It allows wireless users to get the volume they need at lower bodypack settings.”
While its internal electroacoustical construction is different, the new 2MAX earphones are visually and tonally identical to the 2X-S. Both are custom-molded from soft silicone, the only available earphone material that doesn’t shrink, crack or degrade, ensuring long life, a good seal and comfortable fit. The standard transparent silicone material can be customized in various colors, for a look as unique as the custom fit. The 2MAX also features a stronger, more flexible cable, available in matte silver or black.
Like all Sensaphonics products, the 2MAX custom earphones are not available in retail stores. They can be purchased through Sensaphonics or the company’s audiologist network. Pro direct pricing for the 2MAX is $850.
