thinksound™, the multi-award winning US headphone brand, which creates incredible sounding headphones with the smallest eco-footprint possible, announces the UK release of its first on-ear headphone – the On1. Designed using sustainable wood and other recyclable materials where possible, the On1 is a high-definition on-ear headphone aimed at delivering professional studio sound quality when either at home or on the move. Available in the UK now, the thinksound On1 has an SRP of £299.99.
After consulting with numerous musicians and record producers, thinksound has spent three years developing the On1. A unique product in a world of mass production, the On1’s offer a luxurious feel with hand-crafted wooden ear cups, which are instrumental in giving the On1’s their distinctive sound experience. Fitted with enhanced 40mm speaker drivers with upgraded acoustics to reproduce a more life-like sound, the On1’s have been designed to deliver a larger sound stage while offering the deep bass extension and clear high frequencies that thinksound is known for.
For added comfort, the On1’s feature deluxe memory foam ear pads and a flexible, extendable headband, embroidered with thinksound’s distinctive logo. Two sets of detachable, Kevlar-reinforced, tangle resistant fabric cables are included; a standard 1.5m cable and a 1.5 m cable with microphone with single button control for smartphone use. A cotton carry pouch is also included to protect the headphones and store the accessories.
As with all thinksound headphones, every part of the On1 design has been checked to make sure it offers the most environmental solution possible. Renewable, recyclable resources, such as wood and aluminium, are used where possible and the cables are PVC-free. Even the packaging has been highly considered with none of the usual plastic ‘blister-pack’ material used. Made of 100% recycled paper, the understated packaging is designed to be easily recycled again.
“The On1 is part of a whole new and exciting category of headphones for thinksound and it is a great step forward in expanding the thinksound line,” says Aaron Fournier, the company’s President and CEO. “Moving into larger headphone designs allows us to further engineer our sound and create more accurate hi-fi products. The On1 has been a labour of love. After a little more than three years in development, I can finally say that I am very proud of this design and its sound signature; it is my favourite headphone design by far.”
Distributed in the UK by Frequency, Mike Gregory, Head of Audio, said, “We are delighted to offer the thinksound On1 to our UK and European customers. Not only does it fit in perfectly with Frequency’s ethos of delivering unique products to our retail customers at the right price, it also signifies our intent within the specialist audio sector by offering a product with real substance and excellent performance.” – Trade press only
