ROAM ROPES Provide a Personalized, Customizable Listening Experience Offering Superior Sound, Sleek Style and Freedom of Movement
SAN FRANCISCO, April 11, 2016 – Musicians pour their hearts and souls into creating an emotional experience for their fans. Their music is painstakingly curated through countless hours in the studio with highly skilled engineers and producers. In a world where we consume their music non-stop and on-the-go, the technological convenience of portable headphones has degraded sound fidelity and sacrificed the musical intentions of the recording artist. Today, ROAM has introduced ROPES™ – the first wearable, Bluetooth earphones specifically developed to enable users to enjoy the artist’s sound as it was originally intended.
ROAM founder Steven Lamar, who helped create the initial concept and original design for the Beats by Dre headphone line, is committed to revolutionizing the audio experience.
“Sound is a musician’s art form, and today’s headphones are only allowing the listener to hear music one way,” said ROAM founder Steven Lamar. “We value the art of music and the unique talent it takes to create it, so we’ve developed a premium, mobile audio platform and accompanying device to reproduce sound that is true to the artist’s intention.”
ROAM ROPES are wireless and Bluetooth-enabled, featuring an audio equalizer that can be personalized using the ROAM mobile app – ROAM EQ – freeing users from a “one sound fits all” listening experience. By allowing users to adjust the audio frequencies in their ROPES, ROAM EQ empowers listeners to customize their own sound based on the type of music they listen to and how they want to enjoy it. ROAM EQ also provides pre-sets for various music genres, offering a fast, convenient path to audio customization.
For many listeners, an artist’s studio rendition is the ultimate listening experience, and ROAM is partnering with both new and established artists to create a unique collection of ROAM Sound SignaturesTM. Available in summer 2016, ROAM users will be able to download from a library of artist Sound Signatures directly to their ROAM EQ app, connecting them to the artist and their recordings in a groundbreaking new way for the music industry.
Beyond its mission to provide the finest and truest sound fidelity for music, ROAM is also committed to delivering a safer way to stay connected. Inspired by the tragic loss of his wife to brain cancer, Lamar utilized his many years in the audio industry to develop ROPES as a convenient, wearable technology that improves the safety and accessibility of mobile devices.
ROAM continues its support of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation. Stand Up To Cancer is a 501(c)(3) organization that was created to accelerate the pace of cancer research to deliver new treatments to patients quickly and save lives. Through this special collaboration, ROAM will donate $100 to Stand Up To Cancer for each limited-edition set of orange ROPES sold through December 31, 2016, with a minimum guaranteed donation of $10,000.
Stylishly designed to be worn around your neck, ROAM ROPES provide an untethered, constant wireless connection with any Bluetooth-enabled device. ROPES are currently available in black, white and orange. A special red, white and blue limited edition of ROPES will be available this summer to celebrate the 2016 Olympic games.
