HARMAN, the premium global audio and infotainment group, have joined forces with GRAMMY award-winning, multi-platinum alternative rock band Linkin Park to create the Infinity One portable wireless sound system, offering consumers unrivalled premium sound quality and the utmost in mobility.
Sharing a history of innovation, a belief that great sound and technology go hand-in-hand, and a mission to defy convention, the partnership between Linkin Park and HARMAN goes beyond advertising, with the band intimately involved in every stage of the design process. The result is Infinity’s first portable audio offering, featuring high fidelity sound, premium quality materials and wireless streaming. The Infinity One also incorporates a built-in rechargeable battery with up to 10 hours of play time, underpinning the HARMAN philosophy that beautiful sound should be accessible to all – any place, any time.
“This partnership is a natural fit for us since the Infinity brand is designed precisely for people like us, who have a deep and abiding love for music,” said Linkin Park co-lead vocalist and producer, Mike Shinoda. “Our band is serious and discerning about sound quality, and Infinity’s 46 years of relentless audio innovation to progress sound purity is both inspiring and motivational.”
Founded in 1968, the Infinity brand is strongly rooted in pushing boundaries in design, materials and technology, all driven by an undying commitment to, and passion for, delivering uncompromising performance and flawless sound.
The HARMAN Infinity One delivers uncompromising sound quality in a portable device, and comes equipped with four drivers at an optimised angle, for rich, room-filling sound. Featuring prominent passive radiator for enhanced sound performance and perforated metal in a scaled pattern for dynamic expression, the Infinity One features the technical innovation and modernist aesthetics for which HARMAN is globally renowned.
“By fusing Linkin Park’s unique passion for music with HARMAN’s unrivalled knowledge of audio technology, the Infinity One brings together the best of both worlds to deliver the ultimate audio experience,” said Sohan Karunaratne, Head of Marketing for Australian distributor, Convoy International. “It’s a win for music lovers everywhere.”
The HARMAN Infinity One will be available for $399 (RRP) from JB Hi-Fi stores nationally in October.
