COSTA MESA, Calif. — Feb. 19, 2015 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned digital lifestyle solutions provider, today announced that the company is now shipping its award-winning treVolo portable Bluetooth® speaker. Introduced at 2015 International CES, the audiophile-grade device is designed to deliver unparalleled highs and accurate bass that lets music take flight for up to 12 straight hours. Featuring electrostatic speaker technology, a collapsible wing design, and bidirectional sound reproduction through three audio profile modes, BenQ’s treVolo lets enthusiasts create an immersive sound experience while streaming music directly from any portable device.
“We’re extremely excited about treVolo’s enthusiastic reception,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “Already a winner of a TWICE Pick Award, SmartHouse 2015 Award, and recognized as a CES Innovation Award Honoree, the unit’s elegant design, electrostatic speaker technology, and aptX Bluetooth integration are setting a new standard for today’s class of portable wireless speakers. Designed to satisfy discriminating audio enthusiasts, the Bluetooth speaker allows customers to experience their favorite music the way it was intended to be heard.”
Available now in black, the beautifully crafted treVolo features a timeless anodized metal finish, polished details, and collapsible wings that bring elegance and easy transport to any listening environment. Equipped with electrostatic technology, the device provides an overall tonal balance that was previously only available on high-end, floor-standing speakers. Delivering superior sonic quality, the technology guarantees that every musical nuance is transported crisply and cleanly by using main electrostatic drivers that emit sound both forward and backward. For accurate bass, the speaker features dual woofers with dual passive radiators, while treVolo’s quad-amplified design optimizes driver output for maximum performance. Using a speakerphone function with noise-cancelling microphone, the device also lets users make or take calls from any audio environment.
Specifically designed for audiophiles, treVolo features three preset audio profile modes to generate unique electrostatic sound signatures that optimize any type of music. Using its “Pure” default mode, treVolo provides balanced tonal accuracy with minimal equalization to maintain a song’s natural detail. For a softer sound experience, the unit’s “Warm” mode generates a more traditional Bluetooth speaker sound with emphasis on accurate bass reproduction. With treVolo’s “Vivid” mode, the device accentuates vocal melodies or lead instruments such as guitars, horns, or other elements within complex multitrack recordings. As a result, listeners can easily customize their audio experience — regardless of musical genre, recording technique, or source.
treVolo’s aptX Bluetooth wireless technology allows music aficionados to instantly pair handheld devices including iPhones®, Android™ devices, tablets, or PCs without the limitations of line inputs or the need for power outlets. As a result, listeners can unleash portable sound directly from streaming music services such as iTunes®, Pandora®, Spotify®, or any personal digital library using a compact, versatile, and stylish solution. Incredibly flexible, treVolo adds a 16-bit digital USB input for enhanced connectivity from any PC, tablet, or audio player, as well as an analog line-out function that enables the unit to operate as a Bluetooth receiver in a home environment if desired.
Now shipping, BenQ’s treVolo electrostatic Bluetooth speaker retails at $299 and can be purchased directly at https://www.benq.com/en-us/speaker.html
