Milpitas, Calif. – December 11, 2012 @ 9:00 AM EST – NuForce, Inc., a leader in professional and consumer audio solutions, announces today the availability of the HP-800, its first over-the-ear headphones. The HP-800 delivers the kind of performance sound professionals require at a price audio enthusiasts can easily afford.
The HP-800s a natural warmth, realistic highs and visceral bass that only true accuracy is capable of attaining, thanks in good measure to their die-cast aluminum frame, which minimizes resonance and improves articulation. The ’phone’s 40mm neodymium drivers are specifically tuned for accurate performance and low distortion. Together, precise engineering and meticulous construction deliver an extreme dynamic, strikingly fast transients and a flat frequency response.
Long hours of playback will be even more pleasurable owing to the comfort measures NuForce has designed into the HP-800 headphones. The breathable memory-foam ear cups are covered in super soft leatherette and are extremely comfortable. Similarly, the concave body design has been optimized for comfort and a lifelike soundstage and imaging.
