Layton, UT – August 14, 2012 – RBH Sound, a leader in high performance speaker design and manufacturing, entered the personal audio market today with the introduction of their new EP1 noise isolating stereo in-ear headphones. A move made, according to the company, to bring RBH Sound’s outstanding sound quality to a broader range of listeners than ever before.
For many years, RBH Sound’s network of specialty A/V dealers has helped the company build its brand awareness while selling and installing the company’s floorstanding and architectural speakers. The EP1 earphones build on the company’s solid reputation and business model while providing more consumers with a first-class audio experience from their portable audio devices. “Our goal was to manufacture a set of in-ear headphones that could provide consumers with a sound experience much like they get from our freestanding speakers,” says Daren Egan, director of sales of marketing for RBH Sound. “The EP1s are incredible, and are the result of years of research and development dedicated to building a better set of earphones. For many years, our company has been designing and manufacturing some of the finest loudspeakers. We’ve included all of that audio design knowledge, experience and quality into the EP1’s small and comfortable design.”
As one would expect from RBH Sound, the EP1 was designed for premium performance. At the heart of the EP1 is a custom-designed 13mm full-range driver which is more than twice the size of most earbuds, despite the EP1’s compact size. The company claims the larger driver gives the EP1’s a very smooth and extended frequency response with plenty of deep bass, and the ability to play louder than the competition. The EP1’s black and pewter housing is constructed from aluminum, and the 1.2 meter cord is encased in a woven cloth to be more durable and tangle-resistant. The EP1 comes with four pairs of interchangeable ear cushions; a set of Comply™ foam tips come pre-installed for optimum sound quality and noise isolation, and three other pairs are made of silicone rubber. Also included are a cord-managing shirt clip and a small pouch to store the unused ear cushions.
The EP1s include a generous warranty and are priced at $149 per pair including free shipping within the continental United States. They’re available now and can be purchased on the company’s web site at www.rbhsound.com/ep1.php or through the company’s authorized dealer network.
A Utah-based company, RBH Sound is privately owned and operated by the founder of the company, Roger B. Hassing. Since 1976, Mr. Hassing and his staff have been designing, engineering and crafting high performance speakers and custom audio products; delivering superior acoustic reproduction at sensible prices.
