Research Showcases Products for iPod® and iPhone®
Devices at Macworld Expo
Highlights Include hf2™ Headset and
hf5™ Earphones; Etymotic Also Celebrates
Prestigious Awards and Expanded Global Distribution
& Expo 2009
the inventor and world leader of in-ear high-fidelity
earphones, is showing all of its iPod® earphones and
iPhone® headsets at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco,
January 6-9, 2009, in booth #2418 South Hall.
Research has a longer design cycle than most companies,
said Mead Killion, Ph.D., founder and president of
Etymotic Research, but when we introduce a new
product, it usually receives widespread acclaim
which happened again this year with our hf2 iPhone
headset. In fact, the ER-4 (developed in 1991) received
another Editors Choice Award this year.
Here are some
Etymotic Research highlights for 2008:
Introduced the hf2™
premium headset for
iPhone users. The high-fidelity, hands-free (hfhf
or hf2) headset combines the accurate
sound quality of Etymotics ER-4P earphones
with a well-designed microphone and an
end/send/track switch that automatically
mutes/pauses music for an incoming phone call.
The hf2 headset is available in ruby and black.
Received numerous awards for the hf2
headset, including two Best of Show awards at the
2008 Macworld Conference & Expo and Editors
Choice awards from Mac/Life, Macworld UK (which
also gave a five-star rating to the hf2 headset),
PC Magazine, PC News Weekly and others.
Expanded global distribution of the
hf2 premium headsets to include Amazon.com, Apple
Stores in the U.S. and Apple.com online, as well
as Apple Europe, Apple China and Apple Australia.
Introduced the hf2 (ruby) premium
headset for select Apple Stores in the U.S.,
Apple.com online and Amazon.com. Both colors are
also available at Etymotics website,
Introduced the hf5™
for any audio device that accepts a 3.5mm stereo
plug, including iPod and other MP3 music players,
many smartphones, computers and CD players. This
product was offered exclusively to Amazon.com for
Q3 and Q4 2008. Etymotics fifth generation
of noise-isolating, high-fidelity earphones are
the same as those contained in the hf2 headset
for iPhone, except without the microphone. The
stylish hf5 earphones come in three colors:
cobalt, ruby and black.
