The iPhone, iPod Touch are still hot markets, especially for accessories. TDK is has announced a set of wireless headphones, the TH-WR700, which it is positioning for iPod/iPhone use, but which can also be used with any audio equipment sporting a 3.5 mm stereo mini-plug port.
TDK’s headphones make us of Kleer technology to transmit sound, rather than Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. TDK says Kleer transmits a lossless 16bit/44.1KHZ signal using the 2.4GHz band, which it claims is less susceptible to interference. The infrared transmitter is capable of maintaining line-of-sight contact up to 30 feet.
The headphones require a pair of AAA batteries, which will provide up to 40 hours of listening time. It’s possible to connect up to four pairs of headphones up to a single transmitter. The headphones are over the ear, have 34mm drivers, 108dB/mW, a 32Ω impedance, and a pretty standard frequency range of 20-20kHz.
No word on price. TDK says the TH-WR700 will be on shelves March 1.
