Berlin – September 1, 2017 – Following the success of the Philips Flite™ headphones range, two new members are being added to the family that push the weightless, gravity defying design style to the next level. The two most popular wearing styles – over-ear and in-ear – are going wireless. will free themselves from any wires to hold you down.
The Flite™ family – Everlite, Ultrlite, and Hyprlite – are constructed with ultra-light materials and clean lines and are designed to follow the natural contours of the head and ears for long-lasting comfort. Fold them away into the smallest of bags, comfortably rest them flat around your neck, or slide the compact earbuds into your pocket. The unisex silhouette and superior sound are perfect for those who prefer their music like their lives – upbeat and on the move.
Streamlined designs usually compromise sound quality and reduce bass performance. But Flite™ headphones are designed to deliver natural sound and quality bass despite their slimmer form. Drivers, venting and acoustic volume in the headphones’ housing have been meticulously tuned to ensure the kind of clarity and bass impact you would normally expect from much bigger headphones.
“For Flite™, we wanted to bring together the impossible: ultra light and great sound," said Michael Davies, Headphones Business Line Leader at Gibson Innovations. "Flite™ headphones truly give a ‘barely there’ feeling while the sound is surprisingly loud. They are designed Flite™ for a young, carefree audience, who were born to defy gravity.”
