ITASCA, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Knowles Corporation (NYSE: KN), a leading global supplier of high-performance components and solutions, including capacitors and radio frequency (“RF”) filters, advanced medtech microphones and balanced armature speakers and audio solutions, announces consumer audio brand JLab has selected Knowles’ RAN balanced armature (BA) drivers to help produce premium sound for the new Epic Lab Edition true wireless earbuds.
JLab Epic Lab Edition combines Knowles RAN BAs, which produce crisp treble frequencies, with dynamic drivers to deliver rich bass for an unparalleled, well-balanced, crystal-clear sound across the full frequency curve. As consumer expectations for HD audio, long-wear comfort, and advanced personalization features hit an all-time high, these earbuds redefine true wireless sound.
The Epic Lab Edition is the first True Wireless Stereo (TWS) headphone to feature the Knowles Preferred Listening Response Curve. The research behind the Knowles Preferred Listening Response Curve reveals that listeners across age ranges and hearing abilities prefer expanded treble response beyond 10 kHz to deliver the best and most satisfying music listening experience. Knowles BAs enable JLab to achieve the higher frequencies necessary to produce the optimal audio performance to bring depth and life to music. Epic Lab Edition users will be able to customize their equalizer settings for the earbuds in the JLab App, choosing between four settings: JLab signature, Knowles Preferred Response Curve, Bass Boost, and a final option to customize their own settings.
Knowles BAs enable unprecedented sound performance for their size. Small enough to fit in the ear tip, the BAs enable a comfortable fit without compromising sound quality, range or battery life. Delivering exceptional treble performance, with output up to 40 kHz for JAS Hi-Res Audio certification, the high sensitivity of Knowles BAs also facilitates improved hearing personalization and enhancement.
"Knowles’ approach to sound made the collaboration a no-brainer,” said Win Cramer, JLab CEO. “Pairing our technology with Knowles BAs creates an unrivaled sound experience for the listener.”
"JLab is a well-known brand with a great reputation among both casual listeners and audio connoisseurs," stated Jon Kiachian, President of MedTech and Specialty Audio at Knowles Corporation. "Our collaboration with JLab on the Epic Lab Edition true wireless earbuds stands as a testimony to Knowles' relentless pursuit of excellence in audio engineering. We are eager to foster this synergy and deliver the audio performance that customers crave."
Coupled with Smart active noise cancellation, the Epic Lab Edition earbuds feature Hi-Res Audio via LDAC or AAC advanced codecs for the best sound experience JLab has ever created. Bluetooth LE Audio allows listeners to enjoy low latency and pristine audio quality. Each earbud has a 13-hour battery life with a total of more than 56 hours of playtime.
