Cleer Audio Announces Alpha ANC Headphone

One of the industry leading wireless headphone manufacturers is looking to bring in the new year with a brand new class of noise-canceling headphones. With the Alpha, Cleer Audio is aiming to deliver not just any ordinary ANC headphone with their adaptive technology, but one with an immersive, theater-like experience. One way they seek to accomplish this innovation is by using Dirac VirtuoTM spatial audio technology. Implemented properly, the could make the Alpha a game changer for Bluetooth headphones with spatial audio.

The ALPHA wireless intelligent noise-cancelling headphone revolutionizes music pleasure on the go with spatial audio, and industry-leading Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation. With Cleer’s patented award-winning 40mm Ironless DriverTM, Bluetooth 5.1 connection, Qualcomm’s cVcTM 2-mic solution, and 35-hours of playback in ANC mode, ALPHA delivers the best wireless audio quality, immersive sound, and audio performance.
On the daily outing, ALPHA’s adaptive noise cancellation function and upgraded earpads with a cooling feature significantly improve the users’ wearing comfort. The ALPHA is an advanced personalized lifestyle product, more than just a headphone

Dirac Virtuo™

Dirac’s patented algorithms deliver a compelling sound experience without complicated and expensive hardware upgrades. Optimal and immersive audio without requiring specifically encoded 3D formats. Dirac onboard offers a faster, easier, and more cost-efficient path to perfect signature sound. Their tuning system and technology yield incredible performance with lower lows, higher highs, and a mid-range so thick you can feel it. This is high-precision and transparent spatial audio.

Cleer+ App

User Interface: Advanced simplicity was applied to the interface with reduced buttons, swipe/touch control and smart assistants built in. With swipe controls and Cleer+ app, consumers have additional ways to control and optimize their experience. The Cleer+ app allowed our designers to reduce button count, eliminating a cluttered button cluster that led to errant button presses. The app also allows users to optimize headphones performance for both sound and noise cancellation features.

Class leading battery life

Engineers focused on low power consumption chipsets and software management to extend the lithium polymer battery life to 35 hours of playback while the noise cancellation feature is activated. If the consumer needs a little extra battery to get them to their destination, we’ve included a quick charge feature that replenishes the battery by 4.5 hours with a quick 10-minute charge when leveraging the USB-C charging port. This extended battery life provides assurance that the user will not run out of battery during their trip.
