Atlantic Technology Releases Its 5th Premium Headphone
Atlantic Technology, the innovative Massachusetts-based audio company known for outstanding music and home theater sound for nearly 35-years, has brought to market its 5th premium headphone. Loaded with advanced performance and convenience features — including Artificial Intelligence to optimize the sound profile to the user’s hearing — the TWS1’s are a tremendous value at $189 MSRP.
The TWS1’s delivers exceptional performance. The earbuds feature advanced Class1 Bluetooth® 5.2 wireless technology with an outstanding extended-range of up to 100-meters. The TWS1’s makes use of Qualcomm® aptX™ Adaptive technology supporting high-resolution audio up to 24bit/96 kHz and the low-latency robust Gaming Mode Instant Switch which cuts lip-sync lag on games and video to one-third of previous Bluetooth technology meaning users can truly enjoy ALL media. Earbud run-time is a long 9-hours (35-hours with the case).
7mm Titanium-Coated drivers provide an accurate, balanced sound profile. The free Atlantic Technology TWS App (iOS and Android) incorporates a suite of programs including Ai-Tune – a unique test program with an Ai algorithm optimizing the earbuds for the user’s personal hearing profile. The app also has a 7-band equalizer to create two favorite custom profiles, and seven pre-programmed EQ presets for different music genres or podcast listening.
The TWS1’s Active Noise Cancelling, and adjustable ambient sound Transparency, are customizable to the user’s situation. With variable settings or pre-set modes easily accessed on the app or via earbud tap gesture selecting “Balanced”, “Talk” “Workout”, “Training” or “Transparency Boost” modes for intense sports or workouts.
Boasting a superior IPX67 dustproof/waterproof earbud rating, the TWS1’s is designed for active lifestyles. Provided are seven comfort tips and four ear fins for perfect everyday comfort, with a secure fit even during strenuous workouts. Also incorporated is a unique programmable Workout Timer that is gesture-activated with voice prompts to end the user’s workout.
When talking on the TWS1’s, users will always sound their best by way of the four integrated MEMS microphones and Bluetooth 5.2’s 3x wider 32 kHz frequency range. Plus, the TWS1’s Side Tone Activation feeds the user’s voice back (to the user) to prevent talking louder than necessary in noisy environments.
Siri or Google Assistant are fully accessed with a simple tap gesture and voice command. Each earbud features a customizable capacitance touch panel that responds to three different tap gestures each of which can be user modified with eleven different commands in the app.
Multi-Connect Pairing lets the TWS1 simultaneously pair with two different Bluetooth sources for instant seamless switching, so users will never miss a call playing a game or during a video conference on your laptop.
Automatic Ear Detection connects to the last device paired when the earbuds are inserted in ears. When they are removed the TWS1 stops music playback, and the Bluetooth connection then goes to sleep to recharge in its case.
The TWS1’s stylish case provides quick, convenient charging utilizing the included USB-A/USB-C cable, or recharge wirelessly with any compatible Qi charging pad. Full recharging takes only 1.5-hours for the earbuds and 1.5-hours for the case. A 15-minute quick charge to the earbuds gives an extra hour of playtime. Color-changing LEDs on the case and earbuds, plus voice prompts, keep users updated on the status of the TWS1’s key functions and battery.
Another convenient feature in the TWS App is the Burn-In Tool. This generates a timed pink noise signal to accelerate breaking in the headphones, a favorite practice of audiophiles for new speakers and headphones.
