GLASGOW, UK: Global audio brand RHA is proud to announce that the new TrueConnect true wireless earbuds have been awarded the Visual Grand Prix (VGP) Lifestyle Award. Recognised worldwide, the VGP Award is one of the most prestigious and comprehensive consumer electronics awards in Japan and honours innovations in technology, product design and performance.
Founded in 1987, the VGP Award comprises 21 categories for audio and video products. Award nominations for each product are based on the recommendations of leading Japanese consumer electronics retailers, renowned journalists, critics and writers. The final VGP Award winners are elected by ten experts of the consumer electronics industry, who also take into consideration trend potential and sales power of a nominated product. VGP Award winners serve as a guideline for customers who value innovation and performance.
Since release in October 2018, the TrueConnect has received international critical acclaim for its excellent audio performance, 25-hour battery life and high-quality materials. The earbuds feature a stem design to maximise call quality and have a fun sound signature that gives detailed and powerful sound reproduction.
Colum Fraser, RHA’s Global Marketing Manager, said about the VGP Awards: “It is a great honour to be recognised by such a prestigious panel for the fourth year in a row. RHA has a lot of respect for the Japanese personal audio industry and we are extremely proud that our first true wireless earbuds have received this renowned award.”
Since launching in 2011, RHA has been producing world-class audio technology that challenges established brands and traditional thinking.
