Torque Audio says its new t096z earbuds and t402v headphones are tunable so that each user can get the sound experience he wants.
Both headphones use a proprietary bio-cell diaphragm. The t096z come with six interchangeable TorqueValve sound valves so wearers can choose from the reference, clear, deep, balanced, smooth or bliss TorqueValve, depending on their mood and what genre of music they are listening too. T096z earbuds feature 9mm bio-cell drivers and oxygen free copper conductors. They also come with six different types of noise-reducing ear tips; and a silicone StabilizerRing so users don't have to worry about the buds slipping out.
Additional features include an extra-long 1.4 metre reinforced mylar shielded cable; in-line iOS remote and built-in microphone; right angle 3.5mm stereo input; and a protective travel case.
The t402v includes interchangeable on-ear and over-ear pads, 40mm bio-cell Neodymium drivers, and patent pending modi:fi technology that allows users to adjust sound by simply changing the orientation of the magnetically held ear pad to align with the yellow, blue, red or black frequency levels (ordered from lowest to highest bass) to one of eight customizable listening settings. They fold flat for easy transporting.
They come with professional-grade SoftRide memory foam, 3-way articulation for an ergonomic fit; a spring-steel reinforced headband; oxygen-free copper conductor; a detachable 1.4 metre extra-long reinforced mylar shielded cable; right angle 3.5 mm stereo input; and in-line iOS remote and built-in mic.
"As an audio lover I would continually find myself purchasing high-end headphones and being disappointed with the sound, so many of them were genre specific," says Torque Audio co-founder, Yasu Yamamoto. "The t096z and t402v were created to provide users with the best possible listening experience across every type of music. Whether you're a fan of Mozart, Buddy Holly or Beyonce we have the right setting for you."
Both headphones are available for pre-order on Kickstarter.com. The t096z earbuds are being offered at a pledge rate of $225 ($330 MSRP) while the t402v headphones are available for $300 ($400 MSRP).
