JVC ANNOUNCES NEW MARSHMALLOW IN-EAR CANAL HEADPHONES

Company also expands Gumy in-ear line with three new colors.

LAS VEGAS, January 6, 2008 – JVC today announced a new, more comfortable in-ear canal headphone in seven colors to coordinate with the latest iPod® players from Apple. The HA-FX34 Marshmallow has been designed with wearer comfort as a top priority. Super-soft earpieces in two sizes are supplied as standard, providing a snug fit for a wide range of users.

While the earpieces provide a perfect fit for the ears, the range of seven body and cord colors complements perfectly Apple’s third-generation iPod nano™ and iPod shuffle™ models. Furthermore, the gold-plated connection plug is fully compatible with Apple’s iPhone™, making the HA-FX34 an ideal choice for music on the go.

Completing the feature set is the 3.28-foot (1.0 m) friction-noise reduction cord, designed to minimize the noise generated as the cord brushes against clothing.

The HA-F130 Gumy in-ear headphones, meanwhile, are now available in three new colors– Raspberry Red, Mint Blue and Melon Green – bringing the lineup to a total of eight. The soft rubber body of the headphones that inspired the “Gumy” nickname has been redesigned for even greater comfort, and like the Marshmallow, the Gumy comes with a gold-plated iPhone and iPod compatible plug.

The JVC HA-FX34 Marshmallow will be available in February 2008 at a nationally advertised value of $20.00. The JVC HA-F130 Gumy is available now at a nationally advertised value of $10.00.

JVC ANNOUNCES NEW BLUETOOTH HEADSET AND BLUETOOTH TRANSMITTER

JVC ANNOUNCES NEW BLUETOOTH HEADSET AND BLUETOOTH TRANSMITTER

LAS VEGAS, January 6, 2008 – JVC today announced a new in-ear Bluetooth stereo headset for hands-free calling and music listening. The HA-W700BT offers superb stereo sound combined with excellent isolation, and up to 11 hours of use from the built-in lithium-ion rechargeable battery.

For compatibility with a wide range of mobile phones and other devices, the HA-W700BT supports Bluetooth version 2.0 and Bluetooth profiles A2DP, AVRCP, HFP and HSP. Sound quality from the in-ear canal phones is assured with the 11.0 mm neodymium driver units delivering a frequency range of 10Hz to 23kHz.

The stereo headset is comprised of two parts – the in-ear headphones and a small Bluetooth receiver. The receiver has a clip, making it convenient to wear. With the headphone portion detached, the receiver can be connected to a home audio system through a mini jack and used as a wireless stereo receiver.

The headset comes supplied with an AC adapter and a battery charging stand.

For iPod® users, the optional AA-T100BT Bluetooth transmitter – also announced today – is the perfect companion for the HA-W700BT. The transmitter is compatible with fourth-generation and newer iPod players, plugging directly into the iPod dock connector to transmit high-quality audio to the HA-W700BT. And because the transmitter is powered by the iPod itself, no extra power supply is necessary. Users can also start and stop playback and skip tracks from the headset controls.

The JVC HA-W700BT is available now at a nationally advertised value of $100.00. The JVC AA-T100BT, also available now, carries a nationally advertised value of $80.00.
