Pioneer & Onkyo U.S.A. Corporation today unveiled its latest new offerings that allows today’s smartphone users a new level of freedom, flexibility and function. The C8 In-Ear Wireless Headphone are completely cable free with each ergonomically designed earbud free of any wired connection, while the C7 features extreme comfort via a soft, conforming neckband design.

Control Your Day
Both units sync with the Pioneer Notification App for Android™ to read out notifications such as e-mails, SMS, voice messages and news headlines, as well as calendar alerts and much more. And because it is completely wireless, it is the ideal solution for workouts, the morning commute, household chores or whenever you need to stay tangle-free … which is always!

It’s All About Sound
Ultimately, it’s the sound that will win you over. Powerful magnet drivers give speed and punch to bass notes while presenting the audio image clearly and comfortably. Combined with the low-loss AAC codec, your music is delivered cleanly and powerfully.

Voice Interaction at Your Fingertips
Stay wirelessly connected to phone conversations and smart assistants by voice. Simple buttons on the bodies activate a mic so you can make and receive calls. Or ask Siri or the Google Assistant for help without reaching for your phone.

C8 Details
There are many options for wireless earbuds but the difference with the C8 is in the details. The C8 has unique L/R shapes, with the left earbud controlling Power On/Off, Play/Pause and Previous Track. The right earbud also handles Power On/Off and Play/Pause, as well as Next Track, Receive/End Call and Voice Assistant. The earbuds feature body-agnostic charging ports, textured silicon sleeves for superb grip, and a convenient LED battery indicator on the case, the latter of which is a marvel unto itself as the case can re-charge your earphones in approximately one hour. The case can charge your C8 twice before it too needs to be recharged.

C7 Details
Built for long-lasting comfort for continuous use, the C7 features Near Field Communication (NFC) which lets users pair their headphones with their device simply by touching them together. The C7 housing and base are crafted from solid aluminum, so owners can clearly hear even the tiniest details and sound is clean and filled with energy. The neckband, earphones, and earphone tips are color-coordinated, and the unit sports an alumite processed finish that looks remarkable. With approximately 7 hours of playback and a fast 1.5 hours to recharge, the C7 can keep you connected almost all day.

The C8 ($119.99 USD/ $189.99 CAD) and the C7 ($59.99 USD/ $84.99 CAD) are now available. More information about the company’s entire line of exciting headphones can be found online at
