The Elephone company announced during August their cooperation venture partnering with China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) so first guesses about the possible product were pretty wild. Reality is a bit more tame with the product being headphones equipped with a active noise cancellation technology, but with CASC involved in the development projects for the chinese military at least it will be up to military standards.
The in-ear headphones will be named ELE Whisper and will be equipped with the CASC863A military grade chip. The noise reduction is up to 35 dB in up to 4000 Hz frequency. That should isolate and filter out all the unwanted noise and clutter on the background while keeping the sound quality crystal clear. The headphones have an oval shape to copy the anatomy of the human ear for comfortable wearing. ELE Whisper has a 24 mAh battery for powering the active noise cancellation tech and should last roughly for 25 hours on a single charge.
Similar technologies are lately used by well respected headphone companies like Bose, Sennheiser, Sony or even Huawei so the science is valid and let’s hope the Elephone ones will be good. The price should be pretty affordable with being projected at $99.99 and should be available very soon already. More information about the ELE Whisper can be found here.
