SANTA CLARA, CA and SHENZHEN, CHINA--(Marketwired - Sep 6, 2016) - Linner Electronics Co., an innovative acoustics start-up, today announced the launch of its Active Noise-Cancelling earbuds that offer the highest noise reduction across a wider range of frequencies than any mainstream headphones, on Kickstarter. Now, regular consumers such as students, commuters, workers, gym goers, nature lovers and more, can have affordable access to sophisticated noise-cancellation earbuds that had previously been accompanied by prohibitive price tags. The lightest ANC earbuds on the market (19.6g vs 43.9g for Bose QC 20), Linner helps users relax, rest and focus better and increase their level of comfort in noisy environments.
Linner earbuds are also one of the first to offer noise cancellation and Lightning connectivity, making it possible for every iPhone 7 user (and users of other futuristic smart devices) to have the opportunity to experience flawless ANC sound. With the Lightning connector, Linner draws power for its active noise cancellation directly from the iPhone.
Linner's Kickstarter campaign launches with fanfare for early backers who share the company's passion for these innovative ANC earbuds. Linner will ship its earbuds at the end of November to their "Super Early Birds" campaign backers at the price of $69, an attractive 37% discount off of the $109 retail price.
"Active Noise-Cancellation is a great feature to have in headphones, but it usually means adding bulk and a higher price tag. We've solved both those problems," said Bond Zhao, co-founder and chief marketing officer, Linner. "Now, the pleasure of listening to crystal-clear sound even in a noisy environment can be enjoyed by everyone, not only by users of expensive high-end headphones. Anyone seeking noise-free listening can do so at a price much lower than most ANC headphones, plus enjoy the perk of wearing the world's lightest ANC earbuds."
Unlike regular headphones, Linner ANC earbuds let you hear what you want and block out the rest. Linner is one of the most effective at blocking outside noise thanks to its technology that reduces up to 26dB of sound across a frequency range of 45 Hz - 3 kHz, five times that of most consumer headphones on the market. Unlike other products that use noise-isolating technology that only block background noise to a certain extent, ANC technology blocks out 95% of ambient sounds, giving users an exceptional audio and immersive sound experience.
In addition to ANC, Linner's earbuds will also feature "Awareness Mode." This mode allows users to hear their music, but instead of blocking outside noise, the earbuds will keep you aware of it, making sure you are safe and not stepping in front of a car. The earbuds come in navy blue and gold and are available in two versions: Linner earbuds (regular) come with a standard 3.5 mm audio jack and Linner Lightning earbuds come with a next-generation iPhone Lightning connector. When stored in their small carry case, they can easily be carried in a pocket.
