Last Thursday, WOOX Innovations unveiled the 2015 Philips Fidelio range of audio products on the luxurious Ping Lady Yacht. Here are the products unveiled: four headphones – the Fidelio M2L, M2BT, NC1 and X2; and the Surround on Demand Fidelio B5 soundbar.
One of the interesting products will be the Fidelio M2L. It is one of the first headphones in the market that comes with an optimized Lightning connector for iOS devices. Strangely, they did not have option for 3.5mm jack.
Here is the Press Release.
NEW RANGE OF PHILIPS FIDELIO HEADPHONES AND SOUNDBAR DELIVERS AUTHENTIC IMMERSIVE SOUND EXPERIENCE
SINGAPORE, 29 JANUARY, 2015 – WOOX Innovations unveiled the 2015 Philips Fidelio range of high-quality audio products on board the luxurious Ping Lady Yacht today. The line-up presents four headphones – the Fidelio M2L, M2BT, NC1 and X2 – each uniquely designed to suit different preferences and priorities; and the ultra-smart and versatile Surround on Demand Fidelio B5 soundbar. Reputed for its unique sound signature, craftsmanship and innovative technology, the Philips Fidelio range is crafted with high-grade components and premium materials to ensure high fidelity sound quality and maximum comfort.
“Philips Fidelio is obsessed with taking sound excellence to the next level,” said Jason Chang, Sales Leader for WOOX Innovations, APAC. “With its combination of highly popular features and new audio technologies and enhancements in design, the new range will give our customers sound the way it is meant to be enjoyed.”
Philips Fidelio M2L
As one of the first headphones in the market with an optimized Lightning™ connector, the Fidelio M2L kicks off a revolution for high resolution, distortion-free audio for iOS users. Integrated with high-quality 24-bit Digital to Analog Conversion (DAC) and 40mm high definition drivers, the M2L produces a wide dynamic range and a more natural sound experience. Its acoustic seal eliminates sound leakage while its plush memory foam gives long-lasting comfort.
The Philips Fidelio M2L will be available in March 2015 with a recommended retail price of S$469.
Philips Fidelio M2BT
Building on the legacy of the award-winning M1BT Bluetooth® headphone, the Fidelio M2BT boasts a more refined design and even greater convenience in the form of Near Field Communication (NFC) pairing. A simple tap of the headphone with an NFC device is all it takes to enjoy high-fidelity audio, wirelessly. The ear pad’s dual microphones allow hands-free, better call quality calls to be made easily, while integrated controls in the right ear pad enable quick track selection.
The Philips Fidelio M2BT will be available in February 2015 with a recommended retail price of S$449.
Philips Fidelio NC1
The voyage to sound excellence continues with the Fidelio NC1, the first headphone in the Philips Fidelio range with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) feature. A combination of high-quality sound, sophisticated design and advanced technology, the NC1 redefines what a noise cancelling headphone can be. Compact, foldable multi-way and lightweight, the NC1 packs a 30-hour battery life, making it the ideal headphone for daily commutes or long trips.
The Philips Fidelio NC1 will be available in February 2015 with a recommended retail price of S$499.
Philips Fidelio X2
With its Layered Motion Control (LMC) diaphragm and sensitive frequency response, the Fidelio X2 is crafted for listeners seeking an authentic, listening experience featuring rich bass and warm sound. Its acoustic open-backed architecture eliminates air pressure build-up behind the powerful 50mm high-definition neodymium drivers, giving it more freedom to produce a more precise and pristine sound. Its high quality lightweight frame and deluxe memory foam ear pads keep sound in and undesirable ambient noise out.
The Philips Fidelio X2 will be available in March 2015 with a recommended retail price of S$499.
Philips Fidelio B5
Wrapping up the 2015 range is the Philips Fidelio B5 wireless surround soundbar, an ultra-smart and highly versatile audiophile-grade device delivering crystal clear sound performance for TV, movies and music. A major innovation in the Philips Fidelio Surround on Demand range, the soundbar features two wireless detachable Bluetooth® rear speakers and subwoofers, making it the perfect solution for those looking for a stylish and authentic home cinema experience. Regardless of where the speakers are placed in the room, the soundbar’s embedded advanced calibration algorithm ensures a perfectly-balanced surround sound experience.
The Philips Fidelio B5 will be available in February 2015 with a recommended retail price of S$1,699.
