City of Industry, CA (PRWEB) December 29, 2014

MEElectronics, premier manufacturer of wired and wireless headphones, earphones, and audio accessories, will expand its sports, wireless, and high-fidelity products lines with five new releases at CES 2015.

Air-Fi® Touch Bluetooth Wireless Headphones with Touch Control

The Air-Fi Touch wireless headphones transform the listening experience from ordinary to extraordinary with high-tech design, sophisticated styling, and exquisite sound quality. A sleek, minimalist look is achieved by using a touch control interface, which allows the user to control volume and playback by swiping across the headphone’s Touch Control panel. Taking advantage of Bluetooth 4.0 technology with support for aptX and AAC HD audio codecs, the Air-Fi Touch delivers bold sound with deep bass and superb clarity. A folding on-ear design with 24+ hours of battery life, built-in headset functionality, and the ability to be used both wired and wirelessly provides all-day mobility and convenience.

Air-Fi® Rumble Enhanced-Bass Bluetooth Wireless Headphones

Combining substance and style, the Air-Fi Rumble delivers deep, powerful bass with a refreshing design and the convenience of Bluetooth wireless technology. Advanced 40mm drivers are fine-tuned for power, dynamics, and clarity, creating an exhilarating audio experience perfect for today’s music. The on-ear design provides a comfortable and secure fit to keep up with active lifestyles while vented ear cushions keep ears cooler during long listening sessions. Striking lines and bold color combinations further add to the appeal of the headphones. For maximum versatility, the Air-Fi Rumble can be used wired as well as wirelessly.

M6 PRO Noise-Isolating Musician’s In-Ear Monitors

Designed in collaboration with touring musicians, the M6 PRO is an all-in-one audio solution for stage, gym, and street. Flexible over-the-ear memory wire conforms comfortably and securely to the ear while seven pairs of eartips provide a personalized fit. Precise driver movement is achieved with a super thin 5µm driver diaphragm and aluminum voice coil, delivering clear, full-range sound with deep, yet balanced bass and crisp detail reproduction. Engineered for real-world reliability, the M6 PRO features detachable, replaceable cables and sweat resistance. The spare headset cable (included) incorporates microphone, remote, and universal volume control for phones and tablets while the in-ear fit and Comply™ foam eartips reduce external noise, enabling safer listening volumes. With a lifetime replacement program, the M6 PRO delivers unprecedented value in in-ear monitors.

Sport-Fi® X7 Bluetooth Wireless Sports In-Ear Headphones with Memory Wire

Engineered for active lifestyles, the Sport-Fi X7 combines high-definition wireless sound with secure, locked-in fit, providing unparalleled freedom of movement. Incorporating Bluetooth 4.0 with Multipoint functionality and support for the aptX and AAC HD audio codecs, the Sport-Fi X7 is the most advanced Bluetooth in-ear headphone on the market, yet still weighs in at less than half of an ounce, making it the ultimate workout companion.

Pinnacle P1 High Fidelity Audiophile In-Ear Headphones

The Pinnacle P1 high-fidelity earphones utilize an advanced moving coil transducer and patented acoustic diffuser to achieve a flat frequency response from the lowest lows to the highest highs, recreating music tracks with maximum clarity and resolution for the ultimate concert-in-your-head experience. Built to last, the Pinnacle is made of a zinc alloy that is stronger than aluminum and lighter than stainless steel, and features interchangeable, replaceable cables. The unique ergonomic design can be worn two different ways and fits all ears comfortably.

The Air-Fi Touch and Air-Fi Rumble headphones will be available at http://www.meelec.com and from nationwide online retailers in January of 2015. For availability information on other new releases, contact MEElectronics or visit the MEElectronics booth at CES 2015 located at:

Lakeside Fit Body Boot Camp Announces Expansion and Grand Opening Event for January 10, 2015


Hartland, WI (PRWEB) December 11, 2014

The new Lakeside Fit Body Boot Camp location, a 5,000 square foot facility that doubles the previous 2,500 square foot building, will be opening in Hartland just a few buildings from its original position. An event will be hosted to celebrate the growth on January 10, 2015.

Fit Body Boot Camp is the nation’s fastest growing indoor fitness boot camp franchise with hundreds of locations worldwide; the Lakeside Fit Body Boot Camp’s doubling in size is a perfect representation of the brand’s global growth. The company’s founder and CEO, Bedros Keuilian, attributes the radical development to what he calls his Unstoppable Fitness Formula, a system utilized by each individual Boot Camp location.

Lesa Gutenkunst, owner of Lakeside Fit Body Boot Camp, is excited to share the news with her community and encourages anyone curios about the Boot Camp fitness style to come and check out the newly outfitted facility. “I am more than excited about the move,” she said while discussing the new opportunities this expansion will make possible, “because now we are able to have the extra space and expanded hours needed to provide the perfect environment for our members to get in shape.” She also assures her clients that the highly demanded and popular Lakeside Fitness signature program, the 45 Minute Fat-Burning workout, will be the featured service within the new 5,000 square foot Boot Camp location.

Gutenkunst explains why the move was necessary and how the new facility will allow her to help even more individuals from within her community: “Our Boot Camp members will be getting a whole new workout experience! Having a bigger studio means more equipment for more dynamic Boot Camp sessions including TRX suspension trainers, pull-ups, and much more. We are also expanding our hours to include more session times, launching both beginner and active adult sessions, and will now be offering yoga sessions with Victoria Wilde.”

The Grand Opening event will be held at the new Hartland Location and will feature a charity drive for the Soul of Africa organization. Gutenkunst and the Fit Body Boot Camp staff, along with Soul of Africa, ask event attendees to bring pairs of shoes to donate to the charity organization.

More information about the event, offered membership programs, and an entire schedule of new workouts is available on the Lakeside Fit Body Boot Camp website.
