Rand McNally recently debuted new ClearDryve wireless stereo headphones for commercial truck drivers. The three new devices convert into mono headsets through removal of one earcup, providing flexibility for over-the-road drivers.
The three new ClearDryve matte black, 2-in-1 wireless headphones/headset models include the ClearDryve 220 with plush over-the-ear cups; the ClearDryve 210 with soft on-ear cups for a lighter fit; and the ClearDryve 100 with a soft on-ear cup and cushioned head pad, which also converts into headphones with the purchase of a second ear cup.
Developed by Rand McNally engineers and designers, in concert with audio experts, the devices block and/or eliminate more than 90-95% of ambient sound. The ClearDryve features include:
- ClearDryve is cable-free with a built-in rechargeable battery offering more than 20 hours of talk time, more than 500 hours of standby time, and more than 20 hours of music playback time. Controls on the devices enable drivers to take calls, skip songs, and change the volume without having to touch their smartphones.
- A removable earpiece turns the premium stereo headphones into mono headsets (220 and 210 models).
- Multiple microphones cancel in-cab noise, enabling clear two-way communication. The device’s signal processing removes most in-cab noise from the microphone. The pliable boom microphone swings out of the way when not in use and can be muted.
- With the slide of a button, ClearDryve’s active noise cancellation kicks in to tune out ambient noise while listening to music.
