Porsche Design introduces its new Sport TWS earphones PDT40. The wireless in-ear headphones combine functional design with excellent user comfort and a magnificent sound experience. The PDT40 has been developed as a smaller, lighter version of the exclusive Porsche Design True Wireless Earphones PDT60 and is particularly suitable for sports, training and outdoor use as it is dust and water resistant. Modern technologies such as Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), Bluetooth 5.2 standard, compatibility with popular language assistants, wireless charging, intuitive touch controls and a long battery life make the PDT40 the perfect companion for a modern, active lifestyle.
The PDT40 follows the classic design language that Porsche Design has developed for its audio products, but is particularly sporty. They are minimalist and due to a high gloss and several soft matte rubber layers, they are light and fit perfectly. The headphones have two sides: the ergonomic interior that reaches down to the inner ear, and a slightly more “designed” exterior with a classic shape. The PD icon in the center of the earphone is made of soft rubberized material so that the user can easily operate the intuitive touch buttons. Touching and pressing the earphones controls a number of functions such as play/pause, skip songs forward and back, switch from ANC Off to ANC On to Ambient Sound, activate the voice assistant and answer, reject and end calls. The particularly light earphones are ergonomically shaped and come with three sizes of flexible silicone ear tips for a perfect fit. The PDT40 is proven to resist water pressure and dust, so users can easily expose them to sweat or even rain. The certified protection class (International Protection Rating) IP 55 makes them perfect outdoor companions.
On the train, in the gym or in the park: the perfectly tuned 10 mm neodymium drivers ensure optimal sound for any type of audio playback, whether music, podcasts or videos. The driver is made of magnetic neodymium to keep the earphones compact while maintaining and improving sound quality. This allows the user to fully immerse himself in the world of premium sound and not miss important details. The headphones not only look iconic, but also promote concentration. ANC filters out distracting background noise, while the distinctive design and placement of the microphones that monitor the surroundings reduces strong wind noise. The noise-reducing dual micro-algorithm ensures crystal-clear sound during phone calls. Two microphones effectively reduce background noise so that the person on the call can hear each other clearly. If necessary, the user can hear the surrounding noise in Awareness Mode, which can be useful, for example, in traffic or at the airport.
The true wireless headphones PDT40 combine the latest technology and exclusive design with up to six hours of operation. A built-in infrared sensor pauses playback as soon as an earbud is removed and automatically restarts when replaced. The compact charging case can store energy for up to 21 extra operating hours and is charged via an included USB-C cable. The case takes about two hours to fully charge, but 15 minutes via the quick charge function is enough for another hour of operating time. It’s also Qi-compatible for easy wireless charging. So that you don’t lose the case, it has a practical wrist strap. The Sport TWS earphones PDT40 from Porsche Design are now available in Porsche Design stores, from selected retailers and online at http://www.porsche-design.com and from selected online retailers at a price of €199 (RRP).
