Altec Lansing will be releasing additions to their inMotion audio line, the iM616 and iM716 earphones. These high-definition earphones are geared towards digital audio player owners, offering them a unique in-ear listening experience. The iM616 and iM716 bring together Altec’s audio reproduction background with Etymotic Research technology which features 35db of noise isolation.
The iM616 offers users enhanced bass. The inMotion iM716 features the same as well as high definition audio modes, which allow users to select one over the other via an in-line controller located on the cable. The new earphones weigh less than an ounce and ship with various ear tips so that consumers can select what best fits them.
“We launched our inMotion brand of portable audio speakers in 2003 and quickly captured 80% market share. These new earphones extend our portable franchise into the wearable audio arena, and they address the same demand for upscale personal audio as our mobile docks for the iPod and other consumer electronics,” according to Altec Lansing Senior VP of Sales and Marketing Robert Heiblim.
Both available starting end of September, the inMotion iM616 is priced at US $149.95, while the iM716 will be available for US $199.95.
