LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2014 – JVC today announced a new lineup of XTREME XPLOSIVES series headphones, including white around-ear and on-ear designs, as well as inner ear models. The signature rugged looks and durable construction of the XX series are all present, as are the heavy-duty Neodymium driver units and Extreme Deep Bass Ports that have made the XX series a favorite among music fans who like their bass delivered with a punch.
The popular HA-M55X and HA-S44X are now available in white, in addition to the already available black versions. These headphones assure full range sound quality through the use of extra-large neodymium driver units: 1.57” (40mm) for the on-ear HA-S44X, 1.97” (50mm) for the over-ear HA-M55X. The combination of the large driver units and the Extreme Deep Bass Ports is what gives the headphones their impressive bass performance.
In inner ear models, the new HA-FR301 features a one-button remote and microphone compatible with iPhone, Android and Blackberry devices, as well as a Smart Switch that allows for compatibility with most other smartphones. The inline single-button remote makes it easy to play, stop and skip tracks, as well as answer phone calls. The tiny remote also houses the microphone. The HA-FR301 will be available in March in black or white.
The current HA-FR201 and HA-FX101 inner ear headphones get new packaging and will be available in white in addition to the six colors already offered: black, blue, green, red, purple and pink.
All XX headphones are designed for comfort and excellent sound isolation to keep outside sounds at bay while also preventing audio from leaking and disturbing people nearby. For comfort even during extended listening sessions, the around-ear and on-ear models feature padded headbands and soft ear pads, while inner ear models include silicone earpieces in three sizes.
Tough rubber protectors not only give the XX series headphones their distinctive looks, they also make them highly durable – the perfect sound accessories for active street use.
The cables and plugs are thick and robust and built to last. The HA-M55X-W, HA-S44X-W and HA-FR301 come with a 3.94-foot (1.2m) Y-type cable of Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) for maximum audio fidelity. All models have gold-plated 3.5mm stereo straight plugs.
The white versions of the HA-M55X and HA-S44X are shipping now. The all-new HA-FR301 will be available in March. The updated packaging for the HA-FR201 and HA-FX101 and the white versions of each will also be available in March.
