nwm MBE001 Wireless Earphones by NTT sonority (www.PersonalizedSoundZone.com)
Earphones have become an essential part of our daily lives. The global earphone and headphone market is expected to grow to USD $126 billion by 2030. Amid this extreme marketplace upside, NTT sonority—a subsidiary of the leading global technology company NTT—has introduced the ground-breaking nwm MBE001 True Wireless On-Ear Speakers featuring proprietary “Personalized Sound Zone” (PSZ) technology that eliminates sound leakage while letting ambient sounds in for utmost situational awareness. These revolutionary new true wireless earphones allow users to enjoy quality audio with utmost privacy, situational awareness and comfort. The company’s proprietary PSZ Technology minimizes audio leakage by containing sound to the ear, enabling wearers to use the earphones in public spaces without disturbing others in their surroundings—or having prying ears listening in. This provides users with the ultimate private acoustic space and balanced sound experience while also allowing them to retain surrounding audio such as car traffic and other people. In addition to PSZ Technology, the nwm MBE001 earphones offer a number of other features that make them the perfect choice for users who want the best possible audio experience. These features include balanced listening comfort, as the earphones do not block the ears, allowing users to hear ambient sounds and even their own voice clearly. Advanced sound technology allows users to experience crystal-clear audio and immersive bass. Ultra-comfortable for extended wear, the nwm MBE001 wireless earphones are super lightweight, weighing only 9.5g. The user-friendly nwm Connect app allows users to select their favorite preset and enjoy the sound that best fits their environment.
