BERLIN, December 16, 2003 - The world's first 5.8 GHz Digital Wireless RF headphones will debut at the 2004 Consumer Electronics Show, which will become the top of the line model in Amphony's line of digital wireless headphones.


"The Model 2500 will provide true CD quality wireless digital audio without any audio compression as well as the same audiophile sound quality our customers are accustomed to from our Model 2000," said Gunter Fellbaum, Marketing Director at Amphony.

"By transmitting the audio signal at 5.8 GHz instead of 2.4 GHz, the Model 2500 further eliminates interference problems that may occur with other 2.4 GHz devices, such as microwave ovens, wireless networks, cordless telephones or Bluetooth devices. Similar to our Model 2000, the transmitter provides true digital audio interfaces to eliminate any unnecessary analog -to -digital or digital -to -analog conversion and to achieve an unprecedented signal -to -noise ratio without any audio distortion whatsoever as well as a noise shaping filter in the headphones to remove any quantization noise from the audible frequency band."

The Model 2500 will have a suggested retail price of $269 and target the audiophile and audio professional who expects the same sound quality that corded audiophile headphones provide without being tied down to home or studio equipment. Amphony will also offer accessories to complement the Model 2500, such as RangeBooster transmitters, which can extend the operating range almost indefinitely as well as additional headphones that can operate from the initial transmitter.
