Paradigm’s New In-Ear Headphones Now Shipping

Paradigm’s E3i and E2i in-ear headphones, optimized for Apple devices and other smart phones are now available online and from select authorized Paradigm dealers.

Toronto, ON – August 1, 2013. Paradigm Electronics Inc. an international leader in speaker design and manufacturing is now shipping its E3i and E2i in-ear headphones, part of its SHIFT Series. With 30 years of sound research, development and manufacturing behind it, the Paradigm brand is synonymous with high quality audio at a value price. The new E3i and E2i in-ear headphones replicate the reproductive sound quality of Paradigm’s high-end speaker lines in a more portable format. These new in-ear headphones were designed to deliver the full audio spectrum with unbelievable clarity and perfect tonal balance. Models are stepped in the depth and degree of bass offered. In the E3i bass performance is deep and intense; the E2i offers rich, deep bass. Built in to each is a microphone for making calls and an Apple approved remote with volume control. The combination of a thicker cord in a thermoplastic elastomer not only delivers greater flexibility, it also resists tangling. The new 90-degree right angle 3.5-mm is a feature customers have asked for — it offers added flexibility, particularly when the earbud’s connector is not directly in line with the device plugged in.

Unlike most other speaker and headphone manufacturers, Paradigm has its own audio research and development facility, complete with a 36,000-cubic-foot anechoic chamber for taking accurate sound measurements. The company also has multiple double blind listening rooms used to test every product. Specifically for in-ear headphones, the company employs an advanced head and torso manikin (affectionately named Angie) that acts as a human simulator, measuring sonic properties and the effect of sound on the ear, while helping with ergonomic design and perfecting frequency response. Paradigm applies the same stringent sonic testing and quality control to in-ear headphones as to its award-winning loudspeakers. The new in-ear headphones are critically tuned to Paradigm’s two main speaker lines: the E3i is tuned to the flagship Signature Series, the E2i to the reference Studio Series.

“We’ve taken every possible step to ensure these new in-ear headphones deliver an extraordinary listening experience in the over-crowded, over-hyped world of personal audio. We think of in-ear headphones as tiny portable speakers, in Paradigm’s case delivering all the sonic clarity, richness and depth of the speakers upon which they are modeled. Considering the research and expertise put into performance, aesthetics and comfort, these headphones should earn their place as an elite yet affordable product, inspiring a new generation of audio enthusiasts.” said Mark Aling, Paradigm’s Senior Director of Marketing. Paradigm has been setting the standard for high-performance audio for so many years it should come as no surprise that they are fine-tuning their attention to portable media playback. Who better to serve the market but a company with 30 years experience in sound innovation.

The new in-ear headphones are now available from select Paradigm Dealers throughout North America and also direct from the Paradigm website: www.paradigm.com/shift. Paradigm Sport Ear Hooks for use with the E3i and E2i are also available online and from select Paradigm Dealers throughout North America.
