During CES 2021 I was able to get into a meeting with Cleer, in order to get details about their line-up for the year when it comes to audio solutions. There were four products to highlight, and details about each will be found below.
Ally Plus II
Releasing March 2021 at $129.99 USD these are noise cancelling true wireless earbuds. They come in the colors Midnight Blue and Light Grey (with gold accent). They are IPX4 water and sweat resistant with an all day battery focus. That aspect includes thirty-three hours of time with eleven hours on a single charge of the earbuds and twenty-two hours coming from the case which is also QI wireless enabled.
This is improved in terms of the housing structures, blending into one’s ear better than the previous iteration. This is also driven by a 10mm graphic driver which is custom tuned. There are microphones on both earbuds for independent calling. The case is presented as a jewelry style box. Past that, a companion app is available for further personalization.
Releasing April 2021 at $59.99 USD these have a focus on music with noise cancellation up to 25db. These are IPX4 water and sweat resistant. You get fifteen hours of battery life, with five coming from the earbuds and ten from the case. The case is designed to be pocket friendly, with a smaller sleek style. These feature 5.mm custom tuned dynamic drivers. They come in three colors including Graphite, Light Grey and Earth Tone Red. They are microphone independent for either earbud.
Releasing February 2021 at $149.99 USD these are over the ear headphones. You can expect up to sixty hours of playback from a single charge, with USB Type-C as the charging port option and as an analog cable if needed for wired play. There’s noise cancellation and they’re Bluetooth 5.1 enabled. With that, you get a microphone for phone calls.
Bump along with 40mm patented ironless drivers. There’s adjustable ANC and ambient mode through the Cleer+ App. When it comes to the button configuration you’re able to easily tell apart buttons with physical bumps that have been added, a much needed feature for headphones. It comes in Navy and Light Grey colors, weighing around 250 grams.
Releasing January 2021 at $699.99 USD this is one interestingly shaped design. This has an eight speaker linear array full range driver set plus two back firing woofers for a dynamic experience. 40mm full range and dual 84mm woofers. These are independently amplified speakers for used separately, or together. Three modes are present including Room Fill, Stereo Widening and 3D.
You also can take advantage of Google Assistant, Chromecast, Spotify Connect and AirPlay 2. It has an optical input, takes LPCM signals. It’s got a sleek light brushed texture with accentuated buttons. It’s very visually appealing while being subtle as possible and furniture like in nature. The dimensions are 660mm x 184mm x 119mm and around 12lbs. It’ consumer oriented in nature, but could be good for businesses due to the form factor.
That’s what Cleer presented at CES 2021, more details can be found about the event from the hub below.
