New Jersey based ToughTested has released a new water-resistant Bluetooth earbud aimed at the outdoor and shooting industry, aptly named the Ranger. They say it’s built to withstand the most demanding environments while providing outstanding audio clarity.
Product highlights include Kevlar reinforced wires and noise isolating ear tips. It’s proprietary EQ Voice advanced technology delivers state of the art noise control with advanced audio optimization, eliminating background noise while enhancing music and voice communications.
“In developing the Ranger, ToughTested focused on improving every technical aspect found in traditional earbuds to deliver over the top sound features that will withstand the elements demanded by those who spend a lot of time outdoors,” said Tom Buske, vice president of sales and brand strategy for ToughTested.
EQ-Voice Digital equalizer is pre-programmed to switch from balanced music to clear voice for phone calls and no app is necessary. Adding to its functionality, the Ranger is weatherproof and sweat proof. The Ranger has a five year warranty but should prove durable due to the Kevlar-reinforced cables.
Enhanced Bluetooth 4.1 offers extended range and its workhorse battery offers eight hours of play time and seven days of standby power. A rechargeable power stick provide an additional 32 hours of playtime. That’s a lot of juice for the squeeze, speaking of which, these retail for an MSRP of $89.99.
