Phiaton Corporation, a premium manufacturer of high-performance personal audio products, today announced that its recently introduced, PS 210 BTNC earphones have been named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 29 product categories.
The PS 210 BTNC earphones combine active-noise-cancellation and Bluetooth 3.0, making them the ultimate solution for users who are on-the-go. Notably, the PS 210 BTNC's enhanced noise cancelling technology neutralizes up to 95% of ambient background noise. Furthermore, Phiaton's second-generation Everplay-X technology, made exclusively for the PS 210 BTNC earphones, allows you to bypass wireless mode when your battery runs out or you’re unable to use the Bluetooth function.
“It’s quite an honor to be selected for such a prestigious award” said James Baik, President of Phiaton. “Our design team did a superior job creating the PS 210 BTNC earphones and we’re delighted that it led to this accomplishment.”
The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
Phiaton’s PS 210 BTNC earphones will be displayed in The Venetian at the 2013 International CES, which runs January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the International CES from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 6 in the South Seas Ballroom C at Mandalay Bay. Phiaton will also be showcasing its PS 210 BTNC earphones at Pepcom.
