The firm said in a press release on Wednesday that it has sold 50 million headphones around the world in recent years and 1More Thailand aims to replicate that success here.
The products, with prices ranging from Bt350 to Bt6,300, including both wired and wireless devices, are available at Speed Computer Pantip Pratunam in Bangkok.
The company designs and manufactures all of its own components “from the ground up”, not relying on third-party sources or middlemen, which would boost prices.
“For this reason, 1More can provide high-performance sound at extraordinary prices while producing a product that is as much form as it is function,” the firm said.
“With award-winning products like the Quad Driver and Triple Driver in-ear headphones, 1More has succeeded in making reference-quality audio products available to everyone.”
The Triple Drivers (Bt3,500) and Quad Drivers (Bt6,300) feature patent-pending design technology that allows for “a full-frequency, low-distortion, premium audio experience” using three and four separate driver components respectively, to deliver “unsurpassed clarity and dynamic power with a hi-res bandwidth”.
Both items carry a rare-earth-element dynamic driver, plus multiple balanced armatures dedicated to independent frequencies, to deliver “an ultra-realistic soundstage”.
Both also feature a streamlined, anodised-finish sound chamber with perfected ergonomics, which provides exceptional comfort and noise isolation.
As with all 1More products, the Quad and Triple Drivers are expertly tuned by Grammy-winning sound engineer Luca Bignardi for a fully balanced and ultra-realistic soundstage.
The Triple and Quad Driver In-Ear Headphones this year became the first THX-certified headphones, enhancing the value of products already lauded by industry experts for exceeding standards for both value and quality. THX certification is a guarantee of superior sonic qualities.
Peter Vasay of THX said his firm and 1More were “natural partners”, since “we share a common mission – delivering an experience that stays true to the artist’s intention.
“Out of all of the brands in the portable audio genre, 1More can be counted on to deliver a truly superb audio experience.”
Recently released were an active-noise-cancelling (ANC) in-ear headphone and an over-ear gaming headphone.
The Dual Driver ANC (Bt6,300) is the world’s first dual-driver Lightning ANC. Powered through the Lightning connector, and with no need for a bulky battery, it’s remarkably compact, light and easy to use.
The Spearhead VR Gaming Headphones (Bt4,190), a PC-based, wired set featuring 7.1-channel sound and a comprehensive UI for user-customisation.
They have synchronised vibrating drivers that respond to gaming-specific sounds, like explosions and aircraft noise, for a more realistic experience. A 3D audio-integrated VRX version will be available next year.
The 1More MK802 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones (Bt5,250) feature rare beryllium drivers for an exceptionally comprehensive sound and a durable, lightweight and stylish TR-90 exterior.
The iBFree Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones (Bt2,100) are extremely light aluminium-alloy earpieces with Bluetooth 4.1 aptX coding, oblique-angled ergonomic comfort, titanium dynamic drivers and IPX water resistance for active sports use.
The 1Mmore Dual Driver Capsule In-Ear Headphone (Bt3,150) is a two-driver in-ear headphone that has a sleek pill-shaped deign meant for ideal comfort for long periods of use.
