OTTO Earbuds and Headset
OTTO this morning lent a helping hand to iPod owners and gamers alike with two new earphone extras. The company's Isolating Ear Buds slip into the ear canal to provide passive noise reduction and bundle three sizes of tips designed for hours of continuous listening. Each pair musters a 105dB signal-to-noise ratio thanks to 8mm, rare earth drivers and comes in a sturdy aluminum shell that matches the colors of current iPod nanos, including Product (RED) editions. OTTO says that all the earphones ship immediately for $70.
The company has also unveiled its Digital Gaming Headset which helps both gamers and any Mac or Windows PC user looking for both a microphone and quality sound. The headset plugs into the USB port and emphasizes bass with neodymium drivers while padding the earpieces for hours of continuous use. Active noise cancellation in the boom mic also prevents unwanted background sounds from filtering into conversations. OTTO notes the gaming headset should be available today for $50.
