the difference performance between an average set of bluetooth headphones and orfeo’s ‘sign’ headphones is clear. this headphone can effectively block out the noise in loud environments such as construction sites, airplane, concert halls, call centers, and stadiums. this technology can be particularly useful across all industries that suffer from a loud working environment.

the noise cancelling headphones are crystal clear when listening to music as well. it also provides a hi-fi sound when playing VR 3D games, heightening the virtual reality experience. with orfeo’s accompanying ‘control’ mobile app, surrounding noise can either come through or be blocked. this is a big step forward from the traditional kernel-type earphones which can only block the sound, thus being unsuitable for road use.

tommy kim says, ‘we have worked for years to develop the most effective noise-cancelling technology and here it is’. he also adds, ‘we created orfeo with the certitude that our technology will not only change the B2B market, but also the lifestyle of the listeners.’
