From Press Release:
SEATTLE — August 17, 2021 — VZR, a new audio products company founded by Apple’s former lead acoustics engineer, Vic Tiscareno, and veterans of the AAA video game and sound industries, announces that the VZR Model One audiophile gaming headset is available and shipping to customers in the United States starting today, with a wider release to more countries later in 2021.
The VZR Model One was created to grant gamers, music-aficionados and audio engineers an unparalleled aural experience achieved via patented CrossWaveTM technology. This innovation in headphone design acoustically reshapes audio waves before they reach the ear, creating a spacious, natural sound more like hi-fi speakers than other headphones.
Through technology innovations and an expertise in acoustic tuning from Tiscareno’s 30+ years in audio, the VZR Model One delivers winning sound for games and a high-fidelity music experience in the same headset. Competitive players can discern those critical sounds like footsteps and shot positioning that they need to get an edge, then pick up details other headsets kept hidden when listening to their favorite songs.
Unlike traditional audiophile headphones, the VZR Model One comes equipped with a microphone that provides high-quality sound with acoustic noise-canceling technology. Users can detach the boom mic when not on calls or chatting with the squad, but stay ready to chat on a moment’s notice with a secondary in-line mic with mute switch. The headset also comes with an extension cable, 3.5mm headphone and mic splitter, 6.3mm adapter, and carrying case.
Enjoy the Model One’s stellar sound on any device with a headphone jack, whether it be a system’s on-board audio, controller, or smartphone, thanks to the headset’s low-impedance, high-sensitivity design. Meanwhile, the low-distortion acoustic design means that listeners looking to utilize specialty DACs and headphone amps can take advantage of their equipment to get even more amazing sound out of the headset.
“The VZR Model One is the culmination of years of design and decades of experience to create the audiophile gaming headset the world needed,” said Vic Tiscareno, Founder, VZR. “But I promise you, this is just the beginning for VZR as we look to radically improve the audio experience of gamers, music lovers and audio pros around the world. Stay tuned.”
The VZR Model One is now available from the official VZR website for $349 and ships immediately. For more information on VZR, including critical acclaim and real-world reviews, visit the official website and follow VZR on Twitter.
