Knowles Corporation, the global supplier of advanced micro-acoustic, audio processing, and precision device solutions,  announced that Black Shark, a premium mobile gaming brand, has selected its balanced armature drivers for a new, dual driver wireless gaming headphone. The new Black Shark Ophidian combines a Knowles balanced armature driver for exceptionally clear vocals and treble with a dynamic speaker for powerful bass.

Black Shark is a cutting-edge gaming technology company located in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Hong Kong, offering an extended gaming eco-system based on hardware, software and services, primarily based on smartphones. The new Black Shark Ophidian headphone features a dynamic speaker that delivers the strong bass gamers love, and a Knowles customized balanced armature driver that provides all the detail in the high and mid range for an immersive gaming experience. Combined with the Savitech/HWA LHDC hi-resolution codec and exceptionally low latency, the Ophidian is an ideal complement to Black Shark’s line of high performance gaming handsets or any audio source with Bluetooth connectivity.
Knowles balanced armature drivers have long been the preferred choice for professional musicians and music enthusiasts for their clear and precise music reproduction. More recently, increasing numbers of consumer headphone brands have adopted balanced armature technology for premium sound. By combining a dynamic speaker and Knowles balanced armature driver, the Black Shark Ophidian will appeal to users who want an immersive mobile gaming experience while also delivering premium sound for enjoying hi-res music. “Black Shark has been pushing the performance envelope in mobile gaming. Knowles is happy to have worked together with Black Shark to offer the perfect companion headphone for a high-quality, immersive listening experience for both gaming and music,” says Jon Kiachian, Vice President of Knowles balanced armature business unit.
“Through our cooperation with Knowles we were able to incorporate their high performance balanced armature tweeter into the Black Shark Ophidian. The result is very clean sound throughout the spectrum. The sound stage of the whole earphone is more abundant, giving users an immersive experience when listening to high-quality music or playing games. I believe the launch of this headset is an important milestone for our Black Shark brand to enter the ear market with premium headphones,” says Castor Chen, Senior Product Manager of Black Shark. |
