Direct Sound to Debut Latest Industry Products and the First Hybrid Headphone™ at Winter NAMM 2018  

JANUARY 12, 2018 - During this year’s Winter NAMM 2018 Show, taking place January 25th through January 28th in Anaheim, California, Direct Sound, the professional audio industry’s leader in top quality sound and isolation, will unveil its newest products which offer features including wired and wireless low-latency technology, superior sound isolation and comfortability, snap-and-release wire technology, and Waves NX integration. Additionally, at the show, Direct Sound will debut its first Hybrid Headphone™ by Fanstereo.    

“We have been the leaders in the professional audio community, internationally, for the past two decades and are constantly evolving and improving our products on a regular basis, to provide industry professionals with superior sound experience and isolation,” said Steve Rois, CEO of Direct Sound.  

Over the past year, Direct Sound’s products evolved from its original EX model headphones, to the new EX Plus models which include the EXTW - the very first true wireless professional audio headphone. Some improvements Direct Sound has made to its products include a sleeker headphone design, new drivers utilizing patented HPA (high precision audio technology), better sound isolation and more.  

“With the launch of Fanstereo, Direct Sound and its team of highly-skilled engineers and technologists have created the very first Hybrid Headphone™ designed for professional studio musicians and for the general consumer. We are thrilled to introduce the new Fanstereo brand, along with its roster of many celebrity partners,” Rois continued.  

Fanstereo’s products include headphones, earphones, Bluetooth speakers, and more, each offering the sound quality of professional-grade audio. Designed out of aluminum, stainless steel and hand-picked leathers – the look and feel of the Fanstereo brand is one-of-a-kind.

Fanstereo’s product includes:

  • Studio43: Studio43 is Fanstereo’s “no compromise Hybrid Headphone™” which features a feather weight onear ergonomic design, outfitted in all premium leather for comfort and prolonged usage. Designed for convenience and ease of use, this model shows off a voice interactive capability allowing you to stay engaged and hands free, and its optimized sound isolation speakers keep the sound inside of the headphone, canceling out additional sound outside of the product.
  • Eirs: Fanstereo’s wireless inear headphones are a perfect mix of modern elegance and reliable optimized sound quality. Both slash proof and water resistant, the eirs are ideal for outdoor activities, while its superior Bluetooth and noise cancelling functions allow users to stay focused with no interruptions.
  • Nubump and Nubump +: The nubump and nubump+ are Fanstereo’s loudest high quality speakers available on the market. In addition to the sound quality, the nubump+ allows users to fully charge their phone and listen to music at the same time.

“With the support of Direct Sound and Steve Rois, the launch of Fanstereo is finally here and we are excited to share our brand with music fans and artists from around the world. Our HPA sound is nothing like the sound you’ve heard in any electronic product on the market, and I challenge all headphone manufacturers to deliver this type of superior sound to their customers,” said Jay Leopardi, Co-Founder and CEO of Fanstereo.
