HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (January 25, 2018)—Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) today announced the expansion of its consumer electronics category–off the heels of a successful Bluetooth® speaker introduction in 2017–with PureSonic, the brand’s first earbuds crafted for all types of music lovers. Whether you’re looking for a set of Bluetooth earbuds for a workout routine, daily commute, enjoying favorite tracks or to simply upgrade your music listening experience – Fender PureSonic wired and wireless earbuds marry comfort and style with the same dynamic, high-quality sound Fender has been known for as the world’s legendary authority in music and sound for more than 70 years.
“Leo Fender believed that artists are angels and his mission was to give them wings to fly,” said Andy Mooney, Fender CEO. “To realize that mission, we work with artists every day to create the world’s greatest electric guitars and amplifiers. Most recently, we worked with artists to create in-ear-monitors to help them perform at their absolute best. We’ve taken the technologies developed for Fender’s on stage in-ear-monitors and amplifiers and are deploying them in headphones and Bluetooth speakers designed for the broader market of music lovers, so they too can enjoy listening to their favorite artists performing at their absolute best.”

Both wireless earbud models were built for an on-the-go lifestyle, featuring a USB-rechargeable battery providing up to 6 hours of playback per charge.
