Purveyors of premium audio products, 1MORE, announced their new in-ear headphones at CES 2019. The Penta Driver in-ears expand their range of high definition headphones designed for both audiophiles and casual listeners alike.
The Penta Driver in-ears will be available in Q1 2019 and priced at around $300. As the name suggests, the Penta Drivers are equipped with five audio drivers: two bass, two mids, and one treble.
Unlike many headphones on the market which use micro-USB ports, the Penta Driver comes equipped with a USB-C connection. This allows them to transmit data and charge the headphones from a single cable.
The digital data transfer, rather than the more universal 3.5mm analog jack, means that the headphones can receive near-lossless HD audio; that is if you have lossless or HD audio and a capable player.
While high definition audio is a priority for some, many of us want to open Spotify, connect our headphones and get listening. The Penta Driver in-ears connect wireless to your smartphone with Bluetooth 5. There is even support for all the major high-quality Bluetooth codecs like AAC, AptX, and LDAC.
The design of the Penta Driver is undoubtedly eye-catching. Instead of two in-ear buds connected with a small wire, the buds are both attached to a neckband, used to stabilize the earphones while in use. The neckband is also where you can find all the hardware controls including volume, play/pause, and power.
The physical appearance of the headphones is an important factor when purchasing any wearable products. However, the actual audio quality is even more essential. Unfortunately, 1MORE didn’t have a demo unit of the Penta Driver at CES, so we weren’t able to say for sure just how good these CES Innovation Award winning headphones really are.
