XTZ launches Kickstarter campgain for wireless Headphone Divine

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 13, 2014 - comment 0 comments

XTZ has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the brand new wireless Headphone Divine, the world’s first high-end DSP wireless headphone with Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC pairing.

Let’s face it: headphones have been on the market for more than 50 years now. Year after year, new products come up – always offering more additional features and new designs. However, a closer look at the technological side of the product reveals that the changes often merely concern the design. When it comes to technology, not much has happened throughout the years. That’s due to the fact that there is a limit of what you can accomplish inside the size of a headphone. Until now…

With our new Headphone Divine, we take a huge step forward by combining the long experience of mechanical knowledge with the latest sound engineering technologies:

  • DSP sound optimization, including an algorithm for both frequency and impulse response.
  • Bluetooth 4.0 technology with aptX® Codec – no cables, no chaos (however, we also include a by-pass cable, so that you can connect the headphone to any 3,5mm jack).
  • NFC that pair your headphones without hassle
  • New: Works on PC and Mac via Bluetooth!

The Kickstarter project has already reached its initial target of $25,000 USD. Various stretch goals may still be reached before the project is funded on November 3rd, 2014.

MBLOK memory device launches on Kickstarter

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on May 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Kwelea has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund its MBLOK memory storage device.

MBLOK
MBLOK is a secure personal mobile storage with Bluetooth and USB interfaces that is designed to have long battery life.

By pairing the MBLOK with all of your devices through Bluetooth, you can use it just like local memory. However, instead of transferring files between devices, they are all stored in one location.

Stream movies, music and access files on the go with up to 300 hours of battery life without need for internet access. Plug in to PC and upload data similarly to a flash drive while charging the MBLOK simultaneously.

In addition, it is so small that it can fit in your pocket yet has up to 256 GB of storage space.

This project is looking to raise $120,000 CAD by June 16th, 2014.

Line 6 intros AMPLIFi guitar amplifier

Related: , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Line 6 has introduced AMPLIFi, a high-performance guitar amp with 5-speaker stereo design that includes a streaming Bluetooth speaker system and a breakthrough iOS app.

Line 6 AMPLIFi

High-Performance Guitar Amp with 5-Speaker Stereo Design

AMPLIFi is unlike any amplifier ever built. The five-speaker stereo design delivers stunningly detailed guitar tones, from crystal-clear highs to deep and smooth low end. Featuring two tweeters, two mid-bass drivers, and a custom guitar speaker, AMPLIFi covers a far wider frequency spectrum than any other guitar amplifier, delivering sonic details traditional amps simply can’t produce. AMPLIFi is available in a powerful 150-watt model or portable 75-watt version, both of which can deliver ear-splitting volume levels.

Streaming Bluetooth Speaker System

AMPLIFi is the ultimate Bluetooth speaker system for guitarists, featuring streaming compatibility with Android™, iOS, Mac® and PC devices. The full-range speakers deliver amazing sound, while the custom guitar speaker functions as a thumping subwoofer. AMPLIFi combines playing and enjoying music like no other system, enabling guitarists to jam along with songs in their music library, play back tracks during band rehearsal, or crank up the volume at parties.

iOS App Control and Cloud Connection

The AMPLIFi Remote app for iOS introduces a new world of possibilities. Instead of using static knobs or tiny screens, guitarists can now control every aspect of their tones from an iOS device.* AMPLIFi Remote also introduces revolutionary Line 6 tone-matching technology, which automatically serves up guitar tones that match tracks in a guitarist’s music library.

With a cloud community of guitarists uploading their best patches, AMPLIFi Remote provides a unique and powerful resource for finding guitar tones. Within the cloud community, guitarists can rate their favorite tones, upload their own, and build their musical network by connecting with other musicians and fans. The AMPLIFi cloud automatically keeps all devices up to date and synchronized. Guitarists can store an unlimited number of presets in the cloud–and access them anywhere.

“AMPLIFi is a groundbreaking new amp that promises to change the way guitarists jam, practice and enjoy music forever,” said Max Gutnix, VP of Products and Marketing at Line 6. “It sounds absolutely amazing and delivers a uniquely incredible experience that players of all levels are going to love. Whether listening to music, jamming with friends or creating inspiring new tones to share, AMPLIFi is going to rock your world.”

Pricing and Availability TBC.
