XtremeMac, Future Sonics to develop new earphones

updated 08:00 am EDT, Thu May 26, 2005

New XtremeMac earphones

($100), currently available, offers 20MHz-20KHz response, AND (Ambient Noise Technology), and other features.

The companies say that these products will feature co-branding of both companies by using the 'Powered by Future Sonics' badge under the XtremeMac brand. "The enhanced audio earphone market is significant. Combining our brand with audio pioneer Future Sonics will put us at the top of a rapidly growing segment."

XtremeMac says it will leverage its large share and visibility within the iPod accessories market, along with its prominent placement with Apple retail stores, other US retailers, and a network of authorized resellers.

"We feel very strongly that XtremeMac is the appropriate teammate and an excellent vehicle for our designs and technologies," reports Marty Garcia, president of Future Sonics. "We have worked very long and hard to respond to the input we have received from consumers who have discovered our products for use with their iPods, laptops and home studios as well as our professional musicians, engineers and broadcasters."

Under the terms of the agreement, XtremeMac will exclusively market and distribute new products developed in cooperation with Future Sonics and using their proprietary technologies. For Future Sonics, this partnership follows several successful OEM product offerings in the professional audio market with companies, such as Sennheiser, Crest and others.
