LONG BEACH, Calif. – (July 6, 2011) – Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. today expanded its line-up of earbud headphones with the release of the SE-CL331 water resistant earbuds, designed for consumers with active lifestyles. Ideal for on-the-go activities such as hiking and running, the SE-CL331 features a water resistant design allowing consumers to rinse off damaging elements such as perspiration and dust. The earbuds also include four interchangeable ear tips for comfort and fit, and a long 3.9’ (1.2 m) cord for increased flexibility.
“We’ve designed the new SE-CL331 headphones to be extremely versatile for use with many types of physical activity, providing not only comfort and durability, but the excellent sound quality consumers expect from a Pioneer product,” said Chris Walker, director AV marketing and product planning for the home entertainment division of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.
The SE-CL331 uses 9mm drivers to deliver deeper bass response for all types of music. In addition to preventing the earbuds from slipping during heavy physical activity, the in-ear design and four interchangeable ear-tips (XS, S, M, L) decreases the amount of outside noise, helping the user hear and enjoy more of their music.
The earbuds are available in four exciting colors including pink, blue, yellow and white and come equipped with a convenient carrying pouch.
The SE-CL331 features include:
• IPX5 and IPX7 Compliant (Official water resistant classification)
• Interchangeable ear tips (4 sizes in XS, S, M, L)
• Deep bass performance
• Carrying pouch
• 3.9’ cord with L-type 3.5mm plug
• Availability in four colors - yellow, blue, pink, white
The Pioneer SE-CL331 will be available in July at a suggested retail price of $59.
