Coming off the heels of a successful crowdfunding campaign where over 20K units have shipped globally, Erato is at it again advancing the category with two new models
BREA, CALIF. – September 14, 2016 @ 8AM EST – Erato Audio, leading creators of true wireless earbuds, announce today the availability of their newest products, Muse 5 and Rio 3, on the popular global crowdfunding site, Indiegogo. Erato is focused on helping consumers transition to smart wireless listening without sacrificing sound quality or breaking the bank.
Both Muse 5 and Rio 3 are compact, water-resistant, true wireless Bluetooth® earphones that are designed for comfort, functionality and portability. With simple device pairing and tap commands, users can easily switch between phone calls and playing music in fully balanced, stereo sound.
“Cutting the cord and entering the true wireless era has never been this simple,” said Johnson Jeng, Spokesperson for Erato Audio Technology. “We’ve tested the technology with our popular Apollo 7 model, and have implemented that knowledge into our newest additions. We delivered on our promise with Apollo 7 – premium sound, first-rate build quality and on-time delivery – and we’re planning to do the same with Muse 5 and Rio 3.”
Muse 5 is ideal for consumers with an active lifestyle who are always on the go. The Patented FitSeal™ Sleeves offer comfort and the peace of mind that no matter what you’re doing, your earbuds won’t fall out at any moment. The included three FitSeal sleeves and multiple ear tips allow for nine different ear size combinations insuring a perfect fit for every user.
Unlike traditional stereo earphones, the Muse 5 uses DSP (Digital Sound Processing) technology to restore the spatial distance missing in traditional earphones and thus creating a more accurate soundstage. Calibrated with its micro-driver and acoustic chamber, EratoSurround™ can reduce sound image distortion and deliver the same experience as heard in expensive over the ear headphones.
You’ll never be left in silence thanks to the portable magnetic charging case that allows for two full charges of the Muse 5 before needing to recharge. Also, its single touch multifunction is simple to use and powers on/off your device, volume up and down, pairing, next and previous tracks, play, pause and even activates Siri and Google Now.
