The BE6i is the next evolution of the award-winning BE6 - which achieved numerous awards and accolades, including a 'Recommended' award from techradar.com, 4 stars from The Daily Mirror and GadgetSpeak.com. Digitaltrends.com also featured the BE6 in their list of the '10 best Bluetooth headphones'.
The BE6i takes the same stylish design as the BE6 but offers an incredible battery life of up to 8 hours. They are also IPX5 certified for greater protection from rain and sweat. The BE6i are the only Bluetooth in-ear headphones to be fully crafted from aluminium, which provides crystal-clear sound and elegant design in a lightweight form-factor, making them durable and attractive for all lifestyles. In addition, the headphones feature Bluetooth with aptX and AAC compatibility, for the ultimate quality in audio streaming.
With a rating of IPX5, the BE6i in-ear headphones are weather resistant, ensuring protection from rain and sweat - making them ideal for any active lifestyle.
The BE6i benefit from a host of new parts designed to make them an even more complete in-ear headphone both in and out of the home. An IPX5 certified in-line remote has been added. This means it is dust proof and water resistant to enhance protection while used outdoors. The extra capacity has allowed for a larger battery with an increase of 25% to play time.
The BE6i contains a large driver to eliminate unwanted reverberations by using a high-grade titanium, magnesium and inert metal that is used to form a thin nano-layer over its surface. This precise mixture, along with the help of a circumferential copper ring, allows the driver to maintain optimal structural integrity for distortion-free sound even at high volume levels. The patented driver selected for the BE6i is designed to maintain a constantly accurate impedance curve, resulting in improved sound quality from any source. This has the added benefit of extending battery life.
The latest Bluetooth technology offers faster connection and superior bandwidth. aptX will transfer content at up to CD quality sound between source and BE6i resulting in greater separation between channels, improved imaging and the elimination of transmission error. aptX is fully compatible with all other previous Bluetooth versions.
To further enhance the sound quality AAC processing is used to increase the sound quality of lower resolution audio tracks from the likes of iTunes, YouTube, DAB radio transmission and online streaming services.
Non-stop music and calls
The BE6i can play music and take phone calls continuously for up to eight hours and are equipped with an in-line remote control that can skip tracks, engage Siri or Google Voice and activate Bluetooth pairing mode. And with a 30 meter range you can even leave your phone or tablet on the floor whilst you focus on your workout.
Freedom to move
For ultimate comfort and a secure fit during outdoor activities or sports, a wrap-around neckband, clip and silicone ear wings are included with the BE6i. Bluetooth means you won't need to worry about wires getting in the way as you move.
Proprietary NuForce silicone ear tips - five sets of custom designed silicone ear tips are included with the BE6i in-ear headphones. Three sets are slightly shorter than average ear tips offering greater comfort when used for prolonged periods. The other three sets are longer - designed for improved noise isolation and a secure fit for an active lifestyle.
Comply soft foam ear tips - two sets of heat activated memory foam ear tips are included. They expand to fit the ear canal for a secure fit and improved noise isolation. Replacement Comply tips are available for purchase online. Users should look for the Comply 500 series variants.
aptX - the BE6i are compatible with aptX, which allows users to listen to CD-quality music wirelessly in much higher quality than offered from the standard Bluetooth codec. aptX is supported by the latest Android, Apple and Windows smartphones, Macs and PCs.
AAC - BE6i in-ear headphones support AAC, which provides the best listening experience when playing music from Apple devices and a variety of other sources such as YouTube, DAB radio and streaming services.
