At CES 2020, TCL also unveiled a number of innovative audio products, including headphones, earbuds and its award-winning RAY-DANZ soundbar.
ACTV Heart-Rate Monitoring and Zone Training Headphones
Rather than wearing a monitor around the wrist or chest, TCL has integrated an accessible, transparent heart-rate monitoring metric into its new ACTV 200BT headphones. Equipped with non-contact ActivHearts™ heart-rate sensing technology, a precise double sensor system built into the acoustic tube of the right earpiece, these headphones provide real-time audio feedback and accurate heart-rate readings to optimize workout routines. This allows users to monitor their targeted training heart rate zone for different activities while simultaneously offering playback music. Presented in a comfortable, lightweight design, the headphones include a specially-angled oval acoustic tube that gives maximum comfort.
Unique ACTV 200BT headphone features offered by TCL include:
ActivHearts™ heart-rate measuring technology – an array of infrared LEDs and multiple sensors arranged for 360° monitoring of the user’s blood flow in the ear, yielding an accurate heart-rate reading
Driven by 8.6mm speaker drivers and passive noise isolation – delivering acoustically accurate and balanced sound
IPX4 sweat and splash-proof – a host of protective features including nanocoating on the eartube, high-density felt paper covering the driver and microphone, as well as a hermetically sealed design for the control and battery boxes
Equipped with adjustable cable mechanism – allowing the headphones to rest comfortably and securely on the neck and shoulders
Ear hook connected to the earpiece – adding stability to the headset
Compatible with a wide range of popular third-party health and fitness apps – including apps using the Apple HealthKit platform
True Wireless Earbuds for Fun and Active Lifestyles
TCL’s SOCL500TWS and ACTV500TWS earbuds improve on what current competitor true wireless headphones in the market lack, by creating a more ergonomic fit and form, while still maintaining impeccable sound quality and battery life. Supporting Bluetooth 5.0 with a TCL engineered antenna design that is tested to boost Bluetooth signal reception, the headphones deliver a stable connection.
Both earbuds offer an ear-centric design with a custom oval acoustic tube at a specific angle of insertion that has been tested to fit most ears. The design takes advantage of the natural curvature of the inner ear as opposed to solely relying on the ear canal for support which causes mild discomfort over prolonged use. The design space between the ear canal and ear tip ensures the rich bass, clear mids and highs are delivered faithfully, while the drivers work in tandem with TCL’s digital signal processor to maximize high-quality sound. Accompanied by an easily-operated charging case features a compact design, the magnets inside hold the earpieces in place for alignment and stability against mild bumps while still allowing for easy retrieval.
RAY·DANZ Soundbar for an Immersive, Cinematic Audio Experience
The TCL RAY·DANZ Soundbar features triple-channel speakers, center and side channel speakers and wireless subwoofers with options to mount on the wall and/or enhance the surround sound with Dolby Atmos. RAY-DANZ offers arrangements that are typically reserved for high-end home theater systems, resulting in an accessible sound bar that delivers an overall wider, balanced and natural soundstage thanks to acoustic engineering means as opposed to digital.
TCL’s engineers have re-envisioned the design of the sound bar to add key audio features including:
RAY·DANZ Technology:Uniquely backward tilted side speakers beaming sound waves towards curved acoustic reflector units, creating an even wider soundstage than mainstream digital signal processing
Center channel with dedicated front firing speaker– creating clear dialogue and voice positioning for vocal content
Though the TCL RAY·DANZ provides a wide horizontal soundstage using acoustical means, the soundbar’s immersive experience can be extended with Dolby Atmos virtual height channels to simulate overhead sounds. Ultimately, this creates a 360-degree surround sound experience without requiring additional upward-firing drivers.
TCL Intelligent Washing Machines
In smart washing machines, TCL has launched its front-loading Cityline (C) Series, with capacities ranging from 6 to 11 kilograms. The smart washers in the C series come with a water-sealing non-pollution design, honeycomb crystal drums, BLDC inverter motors, and Wifi control.
