Published

on

Berluti and Danish luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen collaborate for a limited-edition collection of products, celebrating ‘savoir-faire’ and lifestyle. The collaboration honours the heritage and craftsmanship associated with both ‘Maisons’ and combines some of Bang & Olufsen’s most iconic products with Berluti’s emblematic Venezia leather, patinated by hand to propose six unique pieces.

The result is a fusion of signature sound, timeless design, and unrivalled leather expertise where craftmanship is elevated and form and function go hand in hand. The Beosound A1 2nd Gen Berluti Edition, Beoplay H95 Berluti Edition, and Berluti’s Sound Pouch are ideal to carry on the go, completed by the addition of Beosound Balance Berluti Edition. Two exceptional made-to-order home products, Beovision Harmony and Beolab 90, add the finishing touch to the collection which complement Berluti’s existing selection of lifestyle and home objects while going deeper into the brand’s technology offering.

Berluti and Bang & Olufsen’s offering includes the following items:

Beosound A1 2nd Gen Berluti Edition

Bang & Olufsen’s award-winning, second-generation, portable Bluetooth speaker is waterproof, dustproof and boasts up to 18 hours of battery play time. It has true 360-degree omnidirectional powerful sound, built-in Alexa and a three-microphone array giving a great speakerphone experience. The minimalist design in Grey Mist has a large Berluti logo on top of the speaker, creating a bold expression. The Berluti calf leather cord in shiny dark brown tones is perfect for portability and the aluminium tag has the Bang & Olufsen logo laser engraved on one side and the Berluti logo on the other. The aluminium tag is completed with a mirror-polished finish, drawing inspiration from Berluti’s ready to wear accessory trimmings.

Beoplay H95 Berluti Edition

The Danish brand’s finest wireless headphones, first launched in 2020, feature the highest quality sound, long lasting comfort, truly effective noise cancellation, and luxurious materials. Aesthetics and performance work together through 38 hours of play time in one charge – even with ANC turned on. Crafted at Manifattura Berluti, the headband features Berluti’s trademark Venezia leather with a TDM Intenso patina and the Maison’s embossed logo. The soft lambskin ear cushions in dark brown match the Berluti Venezia leather headband, creating a cohesive expression. The aluminium discs have been engraved with the Berluti logo on the left-hand side and the Bang & Olufsen logo on the right hand-side. The headphones are housed in a black aluminum case, laser engraved with the joint co-branding that makes H95 perfect for travelling.

Berluti Sound Pouch

Berluti has created a dedicated pouch that can comfortably and compactly fit either the Beosound A1 speaker or the Beoplay H95 headphones. Made with Berluti’s Signature Canvas – a motif blending Berluti’s new logo and the undulating strokes of the iconic Scritto – and featuring a patinated Venezia leather tag, it is ideal for safe carrying.

Beosound Balance Berluti Edition

Bang & Olufsen’s home speaker is inspired by interior objects to redefine home audio and has a soft cylindrical silhouette featuring a hidden touch interface that lights up when being approached, inviting the user to interact with the speaker. Beosound Balance comes with built-in Google Assistant (based on local availability) and supports Apple Airplay2, Spotify Connect and Google Chromecast. Seven carefully placed speaker drivers with beam-forming technology allows the user to choose between powerful and room-filling sound for everyday listening and sound directivity for precise and immersive music experiences.

Patinated by hand, Berluti’s Venezia leather is wrapped around the wooden base of Balance, creating a distinct finish and manufactured with Berluti’s artisanal know how. The fabric has a dark knit with a touch of brown to match the leather base which has been embossed with both logos and includes fine stitching around the base’s edge to create a touch of elegance. The top plate and grill come in natural aluminium for a high contrast and exclusive highlight to the darker materials.

These four pieces will be joined by two exceptional products for the home: the Beolab 90 speakers and the Beovision Harmony television. Offering unprecedented performance and adapting seamlessly to their living space, they both offer a luxurious, immersive audiovisual and surround sound experience when used together.

Beolab 90 Berluti Edition
Experience the most powerful sound experience Bang & Olufsen has ever created. Featuring 8,200 watts of musical power, the intelligent Beolab 90 adapts to its surroundings and preferred listening modes to create an unprecedented level of musical power and precision. From the position and orientation of the drivers to the placement of the cooling fins, everything is shaped to optimise performance. The base of the aluminium speaker is customised with Berluti’s Venezia leather – with a TDM Intenso patina to create a bold design statement and is the perfect match for Beovision Harmony Berluti Edition.

Beovision Harmony Berluti Edition
Originally unveiled at Milan Design Week in 2019 as a remarkable combination of art and technology. When not in use, the 77-inch TV folds down into a sculptural shape with the panels partially covering the screen, then fanning out and elevating the screen above them to perfect viewing height when turned on. Featuring an LG 4k resolution OLED screen and motorised floor stand, infused in Berluti’s DNA through exceptionally fine, perforated and patinated Venezia leather covering the speaker panels, it offers a unique interactive experience.

Published

on

A few days ago, gaming accessories major Corsair, announced the new M65 RGB Ultra Wireless gaming mouse on the market. The company sent us a review unit to test out its prowess and we are glad to report, it performed exceptionally well.

The Corsair M65 RGB Ultra Wireless tunable gaming mouse comes packed in an alluminium frame and offers two ways to get wirelessly connected to your gaming PC or laptop. You can choose from either the sub-1ms Corsair Slipstream Wireless or through Bluetooth.

The accuracy of the gaming mouse is powered by a 26,000-dpi Marksman optical sensor and optical Omron switches.

You also get a six-axis gyro, which allows for ultra-low lift-off detection. You also get help from its 2000Hx hyper-polling that lets you perform actions two times faster than traditional wireless mice.

Just like its wired M65 RGB Ultra sibling, the M65 RGB Ultra Wireless also comes with six removable weights.

These are split into four sections such as internal weight, external weight, both, or neither. In addition to shifting the weight from 110 grams up to 128 grams, the weights are also distributed to adjust the center of gravity.

You also get eight programmable buttons on the M65 RGB Ultra Wireless, which is perfect for those who would like to customise their gaming mice to perfection.

In addition to the left-click and right-click, you also have access to the forward and back thumb buttons, up and down DPI adjustment, and the thumb sniper button, which is an iconic feature on the M65 range of gaming mice.

As mentioned earlier, for wireless connectivity, you can either use Corsair’s Slipstream wireless technology or Bluetooth.

You can toggle between them on the bottom of the mouse, as per your usage pattern. In terms of battery life, Corsair claims the M65 RGB Ultra Wireless offers up to 120 hours without the RGB lighting when using Bluetooth and 90 hours when using Slipstream.

What’s more, the mouse also automatically sleeps after 15 minutes of idle time. It is also good to know that Corsair has added a USB Type-C port for the charging functionality.

Corsair’s iCue software meanwhile, allows you to customise the RGB lighting and change button assignments, including mapping macro functions to any of the buttons.

Once you have everything set, you can even store your settings such as DPI, lighting, and macro profile on the mouse to use it without having to use iCue.

For a price of $129.99, the Corsair M65 RGB Ultra Wireless is one of the best gaming mice out there on the market. The build quality is excellent, it offers good performance, optical switches, a massive battery, and USB-C connectivity for charging. The Corsair M65 RGB Ultra Wireless tunable gaming mouse, thus, comes across as highly recommended.

Jabra Adds Three New Products to its Elite True Wireless Line-up

Published

on

Jabra has announced the launch of three products to establish its new Elite true wireless line-up – the Elite Pro, Elite Active, and core Elite lines. The additions include the Jabra Elite 7 Pro, a revolutionary product that features Jabra MultiSensor Voice technology, offering best-in-class call performance. Jabra is also releasing the Elite 7 Active with pioneering ShakeGrip coating, perfect for those active lifestyles. Finally, the third addition to the range is the Jabra Elite 3, which brings fantastic sound while on the go to a wide audience.

This redefined Elite range signifies the latest breakthrough in true wireless technology: each one is specifically engineered to reinvent the true wireless experience as you know it by introducing new and unique technologies optimised for specific use cases in a sleek and modern design. As one of the first companies to introduce true wireless technology, Jabra has taken six generations worth of learning and is reinventing true wireless to better fit with the needs of today’s millions of true wireless users.

The new Elite range is tailored for specific use scenarios. Jabra’s new Pro category is designed for those who want the best of the best for calls and music, allowing users to experience true wireless without limits. Jabra’s Active category is tailored for sports and active lifestyles and the earbuds are specifically engineered to stay put when you sweat. Finally, Elite 3 makes up part of Jabra’s core category, a new standard for entry-level, on-the-go sound.

Jabra MultiSensor Voice
The introduction of innovative Jabra MultiSensor Voice technology for the Elite 7 Pro delivers ultimate call clarity, even in the noisiest places. More people are connecting through voice: Voice calling increased year on year in 2021 and is the number two use case after music. Jabra MultiSensor Voice combines a bone conduction sensor, four microphones, and algorithms to ensure crystal clear calls. Jabra’s expertise in developing intelligent algorithms resulted in the engineering of one of the first consumer earbuds that use this hybrid technology.

A cutting-edge voice pick-up (VPU) sensor in both earbuds makes Jabra MultiSensor Voice so effective. The intelligent algorithms constantly analyse the types of noise being picked up by the built-in microphones, and when they detect wind noise, they automatically activate the VPU sensor. Bone conduction technology is used to transmit voice via the vibrations in the jawbone, and the intelligent algorithm then uses the best combination of the bone conduction sensor and microphones to transmit the best call clarity.

In addition, adjustable Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) creates a fully immersive experience. Sound can be personalised even further by creating a personalised audio profile with Jabra MySound technology and using HearThrough – a technology that allows the user to define exactly how much outside noise they want to let in. The Elite 7 Pro earbuds are 16 percent smaller than the hugely popular Jabra Elite 75t, which are Jabra’s smallest earbuds so far.

By leveraging Jabra’s database of 62,000 unique ear scans, the technology pioneer was able to create a map of the average human ear and use the insight to totally redesign the earbud. Then, after excessive testing, Jabra has been able to produce an earbud that offers exceptional sound quality and optimised comfort. The all-encompassing earbuds come with nine hours of non-stop playtime with ANC and 35 hours with case charging, with fast charging that delivers 1.2 hrs of power in just 5 minutes. The Elite 7 Pro comes with Alexa built-in, Siri and Google Assistant.

Jabra ShakeGrip Technology
For those who are looking for the best fit for an active lifestyle, the Jabra Elite 7 Active is specifically engineered to suit them. Save for the Multisensor Voice technology, the Active version features the same top-quality experience as the Elite 7 Pro, with four built-in microphones for call technology and an additional two for personalisation plus adjustable ANC. In addition, based on Jabra’s unique understanding of the ear, the use of liquid silicone rubber, and a wing-free design, the new Elite 7 Active with ShakeGrip coating is designed to give the ultimate fit whatever your movements, changing the way people work out. For those who want to go outside whilst being active, the microphone mesh removes wind from calls, whilst the performance-boosting audio ensures a powerful workout music experience.

Jabra Elite 3
The Jabra Elite 3 is the perfect choice for those seeking a rich sound, powerful bass, and clear calls at a lower price point. After recognising a gap in the market for a lower price earbud that still offers the exceptional sound quality, Jabra has used its years of experience to make great sound an option for everyone. The earbuds are engineered to bring music to life with 6mm speakers and deliver crystal clear calls with 4-microphone call technology, a class-leading music equaliser, inclusion of Qualcomm aptX HD audio, and seven hours of battery life (28 hours including the charging case).

The earbuds offer outstanding noise isolation and with HearThrough awareness, users can tap into the sounds of their surroundings. Elite 3 also comes with an all-day comfortable and secure fit, sleek Danish design, and in a new range of colours including Dark Grey, Navy, Lilac, and Light Beige. René Svendsen-Tune, CEO at Jabra said, “We are more connected than ever before. The world has also never been noisier, which requires innovative technology to ensure people can be assured of a clear voice, calls, and music experience. At Jabra, we take our many years of experience to push the boundaries of technology, with the launch of our Elite 7 Pro, Elite 7 Active, and Elite 3 earbuds as a result. The introduction of these new products signifies huge developments within the market, and we are excited to be at the forefront.”

The Elite 7 Pro will be available for a price of AED 799. Stocks will be available in the second week of October. The Elite 7 Active is priced at AED 699 and stocks will be available end of Oct/early Nov. The Elite 3 is priced at AED 349 and stocks are already available in the market.
