NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Monster, the global leader in the development and manufacturing of high-performance headphones, is proud to announce the availability of the Bluetooth wireless ClarityHD™ Micro loudspeaker (SRP: $219.95). To create the portable game-changing speaker solution, Monster, the sound and engineering innovator behind the acclaimed Beats™ by Dr. Dre™ sound, combined its industry leading “higher definition” music reproduction capabilities with crystal clear talk and speakerphone audio. Monster’s ClarityHD™ Micro will be available at major national and global retailers as of July 1, 2012.
Wireless “High-Performance” Audio, Anywhere, Anytime
The ClarityHD™ Micro speaker/speakerphone is perfect for the discerning and savvy traveler who appreciates the very best in music reproduction, and for everyone who wants to enjoy the best possible audio performance wirelessly – anywhere and anytime. ClarityHD™ Micro achieves its stunning wireless audio capabilities thanks to the inclusion of advanced AAC and apt-X digital processing for clean, best-in-class wireless stereo sound and crystal clear phone calls.
The sleek and compact ClarityHD™ Micro provides today’s “multi-tasking” music lover with a high-quality audio solution for great sounding music, with the option of switching seamlessly to a conference or personal call – without ever missing a beat. The ClarityHD ™ Micro also allows users to express their personal style, with interchangeable grilles. Initially, it will be available in black with black grilles and white with white grilles. Additional colors will be available in fall 2012.
Head Monster Noel Lee noted: “Monster believes that everyone who is passionate about music deserves to enjoy true high fidelity audio in every aspect of their lives. We’re committed to creating products that meet or exceed peoples’ needs and expectations in today’s fast-paced digital world. That’s why we engineered the new ClarityHD™ Micro with the most advanced digital processing and efficient, high-performance loudspeaker componentry, plus all the features and capabilities that will allow people to maximize the benefits of their Smartphones and other digital devices. The result is a new type of listening and phone solution that will bring ‘higher definition’ listening into people’s lives.”
Voice Command and Control
Notably, a special Voice Command and Control function lets users make and answer calls, play music, perform Bluetooth pairing and many other functions via simple voice commands. Another innovative benefit lets users change their ClarityHD™ Micro’s voice anytime they want, selecting from multiple voices available on the Monster website for download. Best of all, the ClarityHD™ Micro is small enough to carry to the office, take on vacations or business trips, or just go along with you whenever you want great sounding music and hands-free calling at your fingertips. The included wrist strap makes carrying the ClarityHD™ Micro a snap. Performance updates and enhancements will be available on the Monster website ensuring that consumers will have the most up-to-date version of the ClarityHD™ Micro.
For total user flexibility, it may also be used with a wired connection using a standard 3.5 mm headphone port, which is ideal for products that do not have Bluetooth support. The precision omnidirectional microphone is ideal for instant conference calls, voice/video chats on Skype® or hands-free calls on a mobile phone. The advanced Lithium Ion batteries provide up to 5 hours of quality listening on a single charge. Notably, with a range of up to 30 feet, the speaker delivers powerful, room-filling sound that belies its small size.
