HIFIMAN is using the CanJam SoCal show in California on June 22 as the venue for the North American debut of its new TWS600 True Wireless Hi-Fi Earphones (July availability), which it says offer demonstrably improved sonics. Moreover, their Bluetooth reception capability extends as far as 150 meters (490 feet), due to the company’s customization of the standard True Wireless chip. This tweaking results in improvements in RF reception, and in a significantly lengthened signal range, says HIFIMAN.
The TWS600 also features HIFIMAN’s Topological Diaphragm: each earbphone’s diaphragm, which converts mechanical vibrations to sound, is covered with a Nano particle coating that contributes to greater sonic detail than is typically associated with True Wireless earphones, the company says.
The TWS600 includes several ingredients that are unique to the brand. The Advanced Alloy Voice Coil maximizes vocal clarity and full-range sonic reproduction, while the Hi-tech Magnet supplies the sensitivity critical for achieving the best possible sound from smartphones, tablets, and other low-voltage portable devices.
The earphones provide 5.5 hours of playtime, with an additional 33 hours available from the portable charging case. They are IPX4-rated for resistance to sweat and dirt. And their ultra-low latency characteristics are said to be suitable for use when watching videos without audible delay.
“This is the year that HIFIMAN turns its attention to wireless audio,” said Dr. Fang Bian, HIFIMAN founder and CEO. “There is no shortage of True Wireless products flooding the market, so we know that if we are to introduce a HIFIMAN model, it has to stand far ahead of the pack… thanks to our engineering team’s creativity and know-how, we’re able to give our customers unparalleled Bluetooth reception.”
The earphones will be marketed through the company’s online store and through Amazon as a special limited-edition that also includes HIFIMAN’s RE600 wired earphone, at a suggested retail price of $199.
