Able Planet Honored As Gold Winner For LINX® FUSION At The 2013 Golden Bridge Business And Innovation Awards

October 8, 2013

LINX® FUSION is the world’s first multi-sensory active noise canceling headphone that simultaneously transmits sound through skin, bone and ear for unsurpassed sound quality, clarity and speech intelligibility.

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo., Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Able Planet Incorporated, one of the top selling active noise canceling headphone companies, today announced that LINX FUSION won gold at the 5(th) Annual Golden Bridge Business and Innovation Awards. More than 40 judges representing a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world evaluated products entered in this prestigious program. Their average scores determined the 2013 Golden Bridge Business Awards winners. The winners were honored during the awards dinner on September 30, 2013 in San Francisco.

LINX(®) FUSION was honored in the Consumer Brands, Products and Services category, and is the world’s first multi-sensory headphone that simultaneously transmits sound through skin, bone and ear for unsurpassed sound quality, clarity and speech intelligibility. Able Planet fuses its patented LINX AUDIO(®) with Bayer MaterialScience’s ViviTouch(®) EAP to create the next generation of active noise canceling headphones. The ideal performance for high-end audio is the accurate reproduction of the Live Sound Experience(®). Current audio technologies struggle to replicate this experience, because fuller sounds can mask high tones making speech and music sound muddled. LINX AUDIO provides full rich bass sounds, clear high tones and intelligible speech that enable the listener to Hear the Difference(®). ViviTouch’s Electro Active Polymer technology (EAP) enhances the perception of loudness without increasing volume, and enhances the bass response without overwhelming high frequency sounds, like the strings of a guitar, or voice. Simultaneously transmitting sound through three distinct and separate audio delivery channels results a clear separation of the audio, like standing in the front row creating The Live Sound Experience. LINX FUSION will launch in Q4 2013 with a MSRP of $349.99 to eagerly awaiting retailers who have already committed to substantial year-end purchases, worldwide.

Able Planet was founded on state-of-the-art hearing technologies that remove barriers to active lifestyles for people with varying levels of hearing abilities. New inventions and the migration of technologies from unrelated industries expanded the company’s scope beyond hearing loss devices to include proprietary technologies for general consumer audio and communication devices. With over 40 of the world’s most prestigious industry, product and technology awards, Able Planet’s award-winning sound quality has become preferred by people with normal hearing and is changing the lives of those with hearing loss. The joint development with Bayer MaterialSciences will create Next Generation devices that enhance the listening experience, enable communications in severe noise environments and help people with hearing loss, even the deaf, to hear. The company was founded to create an Able Planet.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by Golden Bridge Awards.” said Kevin Semcken, CEO Able Planet. “Active noise canceling headphones are just the beginning. Bayer MaterialSciences and Able Planet are planning to develop a full line of next generation audio, communications and hearing health devices based on LINX(®) FUSION proprietary technologies.”
