Orange Amplification announced the introduction of their new “O” Edition headphones at Winter NAMM 2016. This is a first for the famous guitar amplification company, revitalized in the last decade. Simple, robust and lightweight, the “O” headphones were designed to appeal to musicians and the brand’s loyal fans, while fulfilling the appetite from music retailers to expand a much needed product segment.
Orange Amplification says they have used their 50 years of audio expertise and experience to create the “O” Edition Headphones. “This set of on-ear cans has been designed to deliver superior audio performance and comfort, whilst capturing the very essence of Orange,” announced the company, generating tremendous excitement from their dealer network and MI distribution channel.
The new Orange headphones are a closed-back design with a 40mm 32 ohm dynamic driver, engineered for a tight and rhythmic bass response, rich mid-range and an articulate top end. Hard-wearing ABS moulding ensures the headphones will stand up to the rigors of the studio, home or mobile use. “A purposefully neutral EQ response makes for an open and revealing sound stage with detailed layers of separation. With natural noise isolation courtesy of cushioned closed-back earcups, the ‘O’ Edition headphones create a truly immersive sonic experience to suit all musical needs,” says the company.
“Much like Orange’s world-famous guitar and bass amplifiers, these headphones are constructed to the highest specifications, whilst the styling blends British elegance with a reassuring solidity. A subtle black-on-black Orange logo embossed across the padded headband and the iconic Orange Crest etched into the brushed stainless steel headband signify an unwavering commitment to quality.”
The headphones are supplied with a zipped clamshell case, and three 3.5mm cables, one with a remote control and integrated microphone and compatible with most smartphones. The cable with remote control and integrated microphone supports voice activation for hands free use on the go. Gold plated jacks ensure better signal transfer and resistance to corrosion.
