Optoma announced the launched of new NuForce BE6i wireless in-ear headphones, which feature an aluminum build and great sound for the price. The BE6i earphones retain the same outward appearance as their predecessor, but Optoma has popped a newly-developed 10-millimeter driver inside each lightweight and stylish aluminum housing.
The design of the BE6i is pretty simple and made to look like it is heavy material. Made from aluminum, these in-ear headphones are very lightweight, preventing weighing ears down, and are actually quite comfortable. The color designs actually match the current iPhone colors and designs, including Rose-ish Gold.
The three-button remote actually hides the micro-USB charging port and also has a tiny pin-hole microphone for using the earphones for calls and commands. There is an indicator light for showing a Bluetooth connection, turning it on and off, and charging status.
Optoma gives the frequency response as 20Hz to 20kHz, along with 95 dB sensitivity and an input impedance of 20 ohms. The earphones are compatible with both aptX and AAC streaming, with a wireless range that’s quoted as up to 100 ft (30 m).
And they come with a water resistance rating of IPX5, which is essentially means that they should be good for a music-assisted run in a heavy downpour, as well as it being able to handle whatever sweat you manage to work up.
The BE6i Bluetooth earphones are available now in gold or gray for US$129. Each pair comes with six sets of NuForce silicone tips are included, together with a pair of Comply foam tips and also a pair of redesigned ear wings.
