Expanded JVC Sports Headphone Line
Includes New True Wireless Models

LONG BEACH, CALIF., April 30, 2020 – JVC today announced the expansion of its sports headphone line with a range of models that spans the price spectrum and offers a style to meet the needs of a wide range of active users.

JVC’s new sports offerings include five new models, including two AE (Athlete Evolved) headphones -- two true wireless, two in-ear headphones and one ear clip model. All feature Bluetooth 5.0.

The company’s two new AE Series headphones were developed with a focus on a secure, comfortable fit for serious long distance runners. Both new AE Series headphones, including a true wireless model, feature a new Aero Slim design that is lightweight and low profile for comfort, and reduces drag and wind noise. The newly designed Stress-Free earpieces suppress landing and wind noise, and the soft material provides a secure fit while feeling natural, even when worn for long periods.

The HA-AE5T are new true wireless headphones in the AE Series. They feature new touch controls with a confirmation tone so that operating a connected device is quick and easy. The headphones are both dust proof and water resistant (IP55 rating), voice assistant compatible, and offer nine hours of listening plus another 18 hours via the charging case. With the Touch & Talk function, one touch lowers the volume and activates a built-in microphone so the user can hear conversations and other ambient sounds without removing the headphones.

The HA-AE5T also incorporate Qualcomm® TrueWireless™ Stereo Plus, which reduces power consumption, provides a more robust signal to each ear, and reduces latency. The best possible sound quality is ensured through the use of AAC/Qualcomm® aptX™
Both standard and open earpieces are provided in small, medium and large, as are three sizes of ear fins. The new HA-AE5T will be available in June for $149.95 in three colors: black, blue and gray.

Also new in the AE Series are the HA-AE1W, Bluetooth sport headphones with similar touch controls as those on the HA-AE5T along with other key AE Series features, including the Aero Slim design, Stress-Free earpieces, voice assistant compatibility, and Touch & Talk.

A sliding cable adjustment helps ensure a secure fit, and thanks to the touch control there’s no controller on the cable. The headphones’ IP55 rating means that they can be safely enjoyed even when the weather turns wet. Up to 11 hours of listening is possible from a single charge, and they come with the same array of earpieces and ear fins as the HA-AE5T. The new HA-AE1W headphones will be available in June for $79.95 in three colors: black, blue and gray.

JVC’s second new true wireless headphones are the HA-ET45T, which is suitable for sports or general use. They come with detachable ear hooks and ear fins so users can choose which provides the best fit and most comfort for each situation. They offer an IP55 water/dust proof rating, and four hours of playback with an additional 10 hours via the charging case. Both standard and open earpieces and fin-type ear support are provided in three sizes. The HA-ET45T will be available on May 1 for $79.95 in four colors: black, blue, pink, and gray.

For those who prefer an ear clip design for their sport headphones JVC has the new HA-EC25W, in-ear headphones that offer pivot and slide motion ear clips for tailoring the fit, 6.5 hours of listening, a tangle-free cable with adjustor to minimize slack, and voice assistant compatibility. They are rain proof (IPX2 rating), include open type plus regular earpieces, and are available in four colors: black, blue, gray and pink. They will be available in on May 1 for $39.95.

JVC also has new wireless sport headphones in its popular Gumy series. The new HA-EN15W are Bluetooth headphones with JVC’s comfortable Nozzle earpieces. They are rain proof (IPX2), offer 6.5 hours of listening, are voice assistant compatible, and come in four colors: black, blue, gray, and pink. They’ll be available on May 1 for $29.95.
