NTT sonority's New Wave Maker (nwm) audio brand was created in November 2022 with the goal of creating an optimal audio experience. The company aims to expand its audio solutions to address future ways of working and living by creating not just a sense of immersion, but the comfort of being connected.
The NTT sonority nwm earphones achieve this goal through the product's PSZ technology that enhances user safety and comfort by locking the sound of the device in a 360-degree space within a few centimeters from the ear. This enables the user to listen to the sound emitted from the earphones as well as ambient sounds in their environment simultaneously?all without disturbing others. Unlike conventional audio-listening solutions, NTT sonority's PSZ earphones allow users to more easily multitask or maintain conversations with family, friends or colleagues while also listening to music, podcasts, videos, ambient sounds in nature and more.
Additional product features include:
Crowdfunding of the product has been carried out in Japan since last winter. NTT sonority is expanding its crowdfunding effort through the launch of a campaign for nwm MBE001 on the crowdfunding website Indigogo (Links to Indiegogo website). The goal of this campaign is to provide customers with access to this revolutionary product at a discounted price.
NTT sonority will also soon launch a wired model of its personal ear speaker - nwm MWE001. Also equipped with PSZ technology, the nwm MWE001 model will go on sale on select online sites soon. This lightweight model weighs only around 3.1 ounces for both ears. The wired model also does not need to be recharged, so the product is always readily available for use. The planned launch price will be announced shortly.
