Bringing its global legacy of sound, Japanese consumer electronics brand Aiwa recently marked its re-entry into India with the launch of its exclusive range of personal audio devices. Aiwa was a popular audio brand in India back in the 90s, especially among the audiophiles who would often compare its products with that of Sony, another Japanese label which is still a consistent name in the audio space.
During a virtual event last month, Aiwa unveiled five products in its audio portfolio which are receiving good reviews in the market. The entire range will be available for online sale on Amazon and across 500 Reliance Digital, Jio Stores (+ RelianceDigital.in) for offline walk-in customers. This audio product range is a part of the first phase of the launch of Aiwa India and is priced aggressively between Rs 699 and Rs 7,999.
The devices have been made available at special prices for the Indian consumers purchasing from these platforms – Aiwa True Wireless Stereo Earphones and Aiwa True Wireless Active Noise Cancellation Earphones will be available in two colour variants – Black and White priced at Rs 1,999 and Rs 7,999 respectively; Aiwa Quad Driver Neckband, Aiwa Ultralight Neckband Wireless in-Earphone and Aiwa Wired Premium Stereo in-Earphones with gold-plated connectors will be priced at Rs 2,999, Rs 1,499 and Rs 699 respectively.
The Aiwa ESBT 460 Quad Driver Neckband is a premium set of in-earphones that provides mesmerizing sound output, all thanks to the 8mm quad-speaker driver technology. The earphones come with a microSD slot to enable you to store your favourite music hassle-free. With a Bluetooth streaming range of 10m, the earphones provide hyper bass and haptic vibration for incoming phone call notifications which are supported by soft multifunction buttons and independent keys for navigation. The earphones provide a super long battery life of 15 hours and 180 hours of standby time in just under 2 hours of charge, so that your music playback never stops.
