For the second year in a row, a Rand McNally 2-in-1 ClearDryve headphone has been recognized as a CES Innovation Awards honoree. The recognition follows last year’s honoring of ClearDryve 200, Rand McNally’s inaugural headphone product.
ClearDryve 180, which arrived on retail shelves and e-commerce sites in August, was selected for the 2020 honor in the “headphones” category. The 2020 awards were revealed this week at CES Unveiled New York.
Built for professional drivers, ClearDryve devices are wireless, premium, 2-in-1 noise-canceling headphones that convert into mono headsets.
“This recognition affirms our focus on innovating the headphone and headset category for professional drivers,” said Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally. “We are elated to receive this honor for the second straight year. Our new ClearDryve® 180 provides exceptional audio quality and noise cancellation for both the driver and the person with whom they are speaking. The ambient noise of the vehicle is nearly eliminated allowing for clear calls at normal volumes.”
Innovation Awards recognition is given to products that have scored highly across a variety of criteria that reflect outstanding product design and engineering. The honor recognizes new, cutting-edge technology products and services. Entries are evaluated based on their engineering, design, functionality, consumer appeal and how they compare to competitors in the marketplace.
