Optoma has one for you; the recently added NuForce BE6 provides hours of fuss-free music for people who don’t need the hassle of cords while listening to their choice tunes.
The BE6 gives listeners wireless sound trips without sacrificing the quality of sound. It has AAC and aptX and designed from aluminum so you get excellent sound quality while adhering to a rigorous, dynamic lifestyle.
According to the manufacturers, the newest in Bluetooth technology brings quicker connection and prime bandwidth.
The aptX feature allocates content with a compact-disc sound quality involving the source and the device, which results into enhanced imaging and ridding the device of transmission glitches. aptX corresponds well with older Bluetooth versions too.
AAC processing is also used to improve the sound quality of low-res audio tracks from sources like YouTube, iTunes and online streaming sites.
Quality of sound is great for a wireless, Bluetooth earphone.
The sound gets even better if your device backs up aptX. The manufacturers have crafted the drivers from a mix of brass, titanium and magnesium alloy to guarantee the smallest distortion.
In spite of its wireless functions, users can push the volume levels on maximum and the device and sound won’t break down.
The vocals sound clear and it represents rock, jazz, classical and contemporary pop tracks very well. Dance, rap and hip-hop tunes could use a bit of bass though.
