the Vocal Response Singers Need
NEWARK, Calif. — Jan. 23, 2013 — Today at The NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif.,Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled the first custom in-ear monitors engineered specifically for vocalists – the Ultimate Ears™ Vocal Reference Monitors. This new monitor is the first-ever custom in-ear monitor that focuses only on the vocalspectrum.
The Ultimate Ears Vocal Reference Monitors have been designed with two different sound signatures to accommodate male and female voice frequencies. These unique signatures allow singers to concentrate only on what they need to hear.
“Most concert attendees don’t realize just how loud it is on stage,” said Philippe Depallens, vice president and general manager of the Ultimate Ears custom line of products. “Often, singers exhaust their voices in an effort just to hear themselves above the instruments and amplifiers. It puts a tremendous strain on their voice.”
The Ultimate Ears Vocal Reference Monitors address this problem in two ways. First, they act as an earplug and reduce overall stage volume by up to 26 decibels through passive noise cancellation. This brings the sound pressure levels down so that vocalists can hear their own voice more clearly. Second, instead of hearing a full frequency mix like most other monitors, the three balanced armatures in each ear are engineered to emphasize the general voice band, with frequency response between 90Hz - 8kHz, so that singers can hear what’s most important to their performance.
Additionally, the Ultimate Ears Vocal Reference Monitors will be equipped with RewardTag. If your Ultimate Ears Vocal Reference Monitors are lost or stolen, whoever finds your device can return it through RewardTag, and Ultimate Ears will give the individual a reward for their safe return.
Pricing and Availability
Both versions of the Ultimate Ears Vocal Reference Monitors are available directly through Ultimate Ears or through any authorized dealer. The retail price is $999.00. For more information please visit www.ultimateears.com.
