Porsche Design adds to its design-savvy audio collection with the arrival of the PDT60 earphones.
Whether you’re out for a jog or are simply on your way to the office, wearing earphones or headphones day-to-day is pretty much the norm today. We’re connected to our phones but decent ear candy allows us to live a little more hands-free, with great sound quality for music and taking calls on the go. Now, with the arrival of new earphones from Porsche Design, you can add good looks to the package.
The brand’s new wireless PDT60 in-ear headphones with active noise cancellation offer a thrilling audio experience married with the characteristically minimalist Porsche design DNA.
The housing of the PDT60 is made from a lightweight, satin-finish aluminum alloy. The in-ear headphones come with an ergonomically optimized design that – thanks to silicone earbuds in a choice of three sizes – fits perfectly with different ears to offer an exhilarating audio experience and extraordinary comfort.
All technical details have been organically incorporated into the design. These not only include the microphones, but also the built-in Porsche Design PD icon, which acts as a touch sensor for operating the earphones’ various features.
Active noise cancellation (ANC) eliminates background noise while eight-millimetre neodymium speakers deliver a wider sound spectrum, rich dynamics and more nuanced reproduction.
Thanks to the IPX5 water protection rating, the earphones also offer optimum protection against environmental influences such as moisture and wind, making them suitable for use during exercise. In addition, Bluetooth 5.0 technology enables straightforward and convenient connectivity, not to mention a high transfer rate and a stable transmission signal.
The PDT60 boasts up to five hours of battery life. Thanks to its carrying case with charging function, the new in-ear headphones from Porsche Design can be used for up to 20 (5+15) hours at a time. The new earphones support Qi wireless charging and can also be charged using the USB-C cable included.
Presented in leather and aluminum, the dual-layer design of the PDT60 reflects the signature aesthetics of Porsche Design. Splitting the total size into two layers enables the in-ear speakers to appear smaller, whereas the basic form of the metal housing has been pared down significantly and incorporated with technical precision in the form of an outer circle. This circular form enables a comfortable and ergonomic in-ear fit and represents a subtle and iconic design statement.
