Panasonic introduces new headphone lineup for people on the move – including wireless Bluetooth Sport models and stylish foldable headphones

Headphones-Wings-sports-2

Bluetooth 3D flex sport clip earphones designed to provide great sound, optimal comfort & freedom – even during high impact activities

Panasonic Australia has announced the debut of its WINGS® BTS line of Bluetooth sports wireless earphones. The BTS high-performance sports earphones were developed for athletes who want to enjoy music even during intense workouts.

The series features two models – the BTS50 (white, black versions) and BTS30 (white, black, yellow, and red versions), which feature 3D-Flex Sports Clips. The new ear hook loops are made of a flexible material so they can be bent by the fingers into the desired shape, thus fitting the wearer’s ears perfectly and staying in place even during vigorous activity.

Samantha Dawson, Product Marketing Manager, Headphones, said: “These resilient sports earphones are available in a range of colours, designed for anyone who wants to play their favourite tunes to inspire their workout performance, inside or out, rain or shine.”

The Blue Edge LEDs located on the edge sections of the BTS50 model add style and visibility when worn at night. The BTS50 is water resistant with an IPX5-rated rugged, waterproof shield, so it can be washed with water after use to remove sweat and dirt. The BTS30 model is also water resistant with an IPX4 rating.

The earphones support Quick Charge using the supplied USB cable. By charging the battery for only 15 minutes, the earphones provide 70 minutes of use. Fully charged, the earphones provide up to 6 hours of playback. This is especially convenient when the user forgets to charge the battery in advance.

The BTS Series incorporates advanced technologies to provide high-quality sound for maximum musical enjoyment. The BTS50 is equipped with 12-mm drivers (9-mm drivers for the BTS30) and supports aptX and AAC. A flat cable is used which fits comfortably behind the ears, dramatically reducing touch noise and delivering clear, crisp, dynamic sound.

Stylish take-anywhere headphones with foldable design

Headphones-bluetooth-foldable

Panasonic’s latest on-ear headphones have a three-way foldable design that provides space saving storage, making them easy to carry about for musical enjoyment anywhere.

Choose from four colours to fit your personal taste – there’s a choice of black, white, blue or red. All models include a Neodymium magnet to enhance audio quality. The sleek RP-HF500 model features a hairline aluminium finish, 40mm driver units for powerful sound as well as a flat sound-enhancing cable; while the casually styled RP-HF300 and RP-HF100 deliver crisp and clear sound at home or on the go, with a 30mm drive unit.

The headphones’ light weight makes them ideal for outdoor use, and the flexible swivel design folds to fit the size and shape of your bag. They are comfortable to wear for extended use with soft ear pads.

Selected models have a microphone on the cord to support smartphone calls.
