EAR Micro and Klipsch Audio Introduce First Luxury Bespoke Ear Computers
KANSAS CITY, MO (August 17, 2022) — EAR Micro and Klipsch® Audio proudly announce the launch of T10 Bespoke Ear Computers at the Motorlux Event, Monterey Jet Center, August 18-19, 2022, to coincide with the 71st Concours D’Elegance.
T10 Bespoke represents an entirely new category of advanced hearables technology — tiny in-ear computers about a third of the size of traditional wireless earphones, yet significantly more advanced. T10 Bespoke Ear Computers seamlessly blend high-style luxury materials and hand craftsmanship typical of fine jewelry and watchmaking with state-of-the-art wireless hi-fi audio. The audio signal path boasts a stunning 96kHz/24-bit audio resolution rendered through the LDAC codec, further enhanced by twin Cadence/Tensilica Hi-Fi DSP’s, passed next through ultra-efficient class-D amplifiers, and finally into your ears through acoustically accurate Sonion precision balanced-armature transducers.
"T10 Bespoke Ear Computers are the ultimate luxury statement. Affluent consumers have always been able to collect fine automobiles, yachts, and aircraft, while sporting high fashion, fine eyewear, precious jewelry, and other custom accessories,” says Patsy Nigh, co-founder of EAR Micro. "But to date, they have not been able to purchase true luxury earwear: products that deliver the best sound, the most advanced technology, and the best styling and craftsmanship in the world.”
Paul Jacobs, President & CEO of Klipsch Audio adds, “We’ve been working with EAR Micro for four years to bring T10 Bespoke Ear Computers to life. Together, we’ve leveraged everything Klipsch has learned over its 75+ year history building the world’s best-sounding speakers and headphones to ensure that T10 Bespoke Ear Computers set an entirely new precedent for what is possible with miniaturized wireless audio. We are proud of the result. The T10 Bespoke Ear Computers are like nothing the world has ever seen or heard before—capable of delivering the power, detail, and emotion of the live music experience inside your head, yet so diminutive in size that you or anyone else will barely notice you’re wearing them. Plus, they’re so comfortable they can be worn all day long and boast battery life to match."
T10 Bespoke Ear Computers are designed individually for each person and then built-to-order in the USA from renewable and sustainable materials such as precious metal and precision ceramic zirconia. Clients are encouraged to match their personal styling and aesthetic preferences by selecting from thousands of possible color and material combinations, which are easily visualized using the unique T10 Bespoke online configurator. Ms. Nigh emphasizes, “Unlike other products that are made from inexpensive plastic, used only for a year or two and then tossed aside, we’ve created luxury portable audio that can provide a lifetime of enjoyment. We’ve engineered a patent-pending chassis architecture allowing T10 Bespoke Ear Computers to be infinitely repaired, renewed, and upgraded. Everything is meticulously assembled using exactly the same techniques you’d find in a fine Swiss watch.”
By accomplishing all of this in the USA, EAR Micro and Klipsch hope luxury consumers will take pride in helping to create highly skilled, long-lasting high-tech jobs that are good for the American economy, and which result in fully sustainable audio products that are the envy of the world.
