This new project is something that we are certain Astrotec could have promoted by itself if it wasn't for the fact that Asian companies are increasingly valuing the marketing potential that crowdfunding platforms like Indiegogo can offer globally (and particular in the US market) while also providing very welcome pre-sales revenue. Not that Astrotec would risk making such a project public and not bring it to market, considering that the company is part of an established industrial group, and holds a leading position in designing and producing earphones in Asia. The Shenzhen-based company also holds a series of patents including hybrid drivers designs and, apart from consumer electronics, it already produces aviation headsets in its facilities.
The new Astrotec S70 will project even more the company with its hybrid driver design on truly wireless earbuds, offering already a differentiator in terms of sound quality. The S70s combine a 10mm high-fidelity large dynamic driver for bass and mids, with a Knowles highly sensitive balanced armature driver for the high frequencies.
But the Astrotec S70 will also combine plenty of other arguments, starting with the latest Bluetooth 5 CSR chipset to provide a strong and reliable connectivity, with a super low power consumption, better anti-interference ability and a stronger signal that allows to reach up to 40 meters from the sound source device. This adds to the generous internal battery design which provides up to 6 hours of playback time on a single charge and an additional 30 hours playback time from the portable charging case. And the S70 earbuds can be fully recharged in 1 hour with fast charging.
The truly wireless design also allows both earbuds to be used alone or together, with both units providing microphones for clear sound quality calls, and perfect stereo reproduction when used with both units. And most important in a truly wireless product, the lightness and compact form are important arguments as well. Each earbud weighs at only 10g and it can be comfortably fixed on the user's ear for extended periods of time.
Astrotec will be soon opening the Indiegogo campaign and anyone can pre-register in order to to receive the 40% super early bird discount. The "coming soon" page is now available for sign-up. Visit the Indiegogo page here.
