London 14th November 2012 – thinksound™, the US headphone brand that creates incredible sounding headphones with the smallest eco-footprint possible, announces the UK release of the ts02+mic in-ear 8mm high-definition headphone with integrated microphone and call control, the first of its kind from the company.
The thinksound™ ts02+mic is available now with a UK RRP of £99.99
Compatible with all iPhones including iPhone 5, iPads, iPods and most BlackBerry models and smart phones, the ts02+mic features an acoustically enhanced 8mm driver set into a handcrafted wood housing. The combination delivers a crisp, accurate sound quality and wide soundstage with the wood housing (sourced from sustainable supplies) adding a natural quality for a more life-like sound.
Available in two finishes – silver/cherry and black/chocolate – the ts02+mic comes with four different-sized silicon earbuds to ensure a comfortable fit and passive noise isolation. Also included is a cotton carry pouch to carry the headphones, which includes room for an iPod, iPhone, and many other popular MP3 players.
“The ts02+mic is an amazing headphone. We have improved comfort, packaging and the overall sound,” stated Aaron Fournier, President and CEO of thinksound. “This is one of the best sounding audio products I have ever worked on.”
thinksound headphones are assembled primarily from renewable, recyclable resources such as wood and aluminium, and feature PVC-free cables. The packaging is made from bleach-free recycled cardboard and is designed to eliminate much of the elaborate plastic packaging normally associated with headphones.
thinksound now offers three different headphone models in the UK; the £99.99 ts02+mic in-ear 8mm high-definition headphone with integrated microphone and call control; the £89.99 ts02 in-ear 8mm high-definition headphone with passive noise isolation and the new £114.99 ms01 in-ear 8mm high-definition monitor with passive noise isolation and enhanced bass. Both ts02 models are available in silver/cherry or black/chocolate whilst the ms01 is available in gunmetal/chocolate.
