Panasonic New Zealand has today launched its first range of
wireless headphones designed for active New Zealanders and music
lovers. The new headphones expand the Panasonic range of popular
audio accessories, with two new high-performance wireless headphone
models including the BTS50 and BTS30.
Designed to make athletes and active New Zealanders aim higher
and push harder during their workouts, Panasonic's WINGS wireless
headphones deliver premium sound quality in a lightweight,
flexible, comfortable and waterproof design.
Kiwis will enjoy the freedom of listening to their favourite
music wirelessly whilst working out with Bluetooth technology.
Wireless Bluetooth connectivity lets Kiwis easily pair their
Bluetooth enabled device to the headphones and seamlessly stream
music anytime, anywhere.
The BTS30 model headphones have an IPX4 splash proof design,
which protects the headphones from sweat and light rain, and is
available in the colours black, white, red and green.
The premium BTS50 model features IPX5 waterproofing for extra
protection from rain and dirt, and can also be cleaned by washing
the headphones under running water for quick and easy maintenance.
This model also features stylish blue LED lights
embedded along the edge of the headphones, providing increased
visibility and safety for Kiwis who exercise early in the morning
or at night in the dark during the winter months.
Chris Dick, Product Manager for AV Accessories at Panasonic New
Zealand, says listening to music whilst working out is a huge
motivator for many people.
"Our new WINGS headphones have been designed for anyone who
enjoys listening to their favourite music whilst exercising. The
clever wireless design and Bluetooth technology convenience means
Kiwis will be able to move freely during their workouts, without
wires getting in the way."
Created for high-powered performance, their lightweight and
compact design with flexible 3D ear hooks provides a secure and
comfortable fit. They can be shaped to fit any user and with the
quick-fit adjuster, WINGS headphones stay in place even during the
hardest workout. Both models also come with three different ear pad
sizes, to ensure a perfect and comfortable fit.
"When exercising, it's important to have a pair of headphones
that fit perfectly. Panasonic's new WINGS headphones stay in place
during your workout with their 3D-flex style ear hooks and
quick-fit adjuster. They can also be easily adjusted for a
comfortable fit," says Chris.
The rechargeable battery offers six hours of playback on a
full-charge, and if users are running on empty, a quick 15-minute
charge delivers 70-minutes of non-stop playback. With WINGS,
fitness fanatics will always be powered up and ready to go.
Drawing on Panasonic's extensive history in audio innovation and
engineering, the new WINGS wireless headphones deliver a premium
listening experience. The BTS50 model has a 12mm driver compatible
with aptX and AAC for a natural and robust sound quality. Both
WINGS headphone models feature a flat cable which is routed behind
the ear, touch noise is significantly minimised and a sharper and
clearer sound quality is produced. Kiwis can also make and receive
hands-free calls with the built-in microphone and when they are not
in use, the convenient carry case keeps them safe.
Panasonic Corporation is an official worldwide partner for the
Rio 2016 Olympic Games in the Audio and Visual Equipment category.
Panasonic New Zealand has strengthened their partnership with the
New Zealand Olympic Team by supplying athletes competing in Rio
2016 with a pair of WINGS headphones.
Nick Tongue, Director of Consumer Products at Panasonic New
Zealand says "we are incredibly excited to see New Zealand's most
inspirational athletes wearing our WINGS headphones around the
Olympic village and to the Olympics Games. WINGS wireless
headphones combine Panasonic's exceptional sound quality with a
comfortable and lightweight fit, sweat resistant design, and six
hours of non-stop playback. We are sure the athletes will love
using them during their training."
New Zealand Olympic Committee CEO Kereyn Smith agrees that the
purpose-designed headphones will be well-received by the
"Many athletes use music as part of their training and
preparation regimes and I know the headphones from Panasonic will
be a favourite item in the athletes' kit bags in Rio.
"We appreciate the support of Panasonic in helping our athletes
be in the best shape possible for the Olympic Games this August,"
Panasonic's WINGS wireless headphones are available from JB
Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman retailers nationwide, now. BTS50 is
available in black and white, and BTS30 is available in black,
white, red and green.
