ROAM Rolls Out New ROPES Earphones
Looking to find the perfect solution for on-the-go music listeners—one that doesn’t degrade the quality of the sound streaming into their ears—headphones manufacturer ROAM unveiled their new ROPES earphones. The wearable, Bluetooth device is designed to “enable users to enjoy the artist’s sound as it was originally intended,” the company explained in a statement.
ROAM founder Steven Lamar—the same Steven Lamar behind the initial concept and design of the Beats by Dre headphone line—said he is committed to revolutionizing the audio experience and believes ROPES is a step in that direction. "Sound is a musician's art form, and today's headphones are only allowing the listener to hear music one way," Lamar said in the statement. "We value the art of music and the unique talent it takes to create it, so we've developed a premium, mobile audio platform and accompanying device to reproduce sound that is true to the artist's intention."
ROAM ROPES, which retail for $299, are wireless and Bluetooth-enabled, and feature an audio equalizer that can be personalized using the ROAM mobile app—ROAM EQ—freeing users from a “one sound fits all” listening experience, ROAM said. Through the app, listeners can adjust the audio frequency in their ROPES, and several presets are included for various music genres.
