The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the company that sponsors the CES Innovation Awards has named Rand McNally’s ClearDryve 200 as a 2019 Innovation Award Honoree in the highly competitive “Headphones” category. Built for professional drivers, ClearDryve 200 is a premium 2-in-1 noise-cancelling headphone pair that converts into a mono headset.
Innovation Award recognition is given to an elite group of products that have scored highly across a variety of criteria that reflect outstanding product design and engineering.
Products reviewed in the prestigious CTA program are judged by a preeminent panel of highly respected consumer technology designers, engineers, and tech journalists. Entries are evaluated based on their engineering, design, functionality, consumer appeal and how they compare to competitors in the marketplace.
ClearDryve 200 was recognized for its crystal clear sound, superior noise-cancellation, and switchable all-day over-the-ear comfort.
“This honor exemplifies Rand McNally’s commitment to creating innovative, high-end tools for professional and everyday drivers,” said Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally. He further added, “We are pleased to be one of the few companies publicly recognized by industry peers for our first-ever headphone product. We will continue to focus on the headphone and headset product line, going beyond the limitations of existing items in the market.”
Unique to the professional driving market, ClearDryve 200 is flexible, providing drivers with a hard-working headset for making and receiving calls while on the road, and an ultra-high-fidelity pair of headphones for relaxing after the day’s drive. Rand McNally worked closely with its professional driver customer base in developing ClearDryve 200.
Rand McNally’s ClearDryve 200 will be showcased during CES Unveiled New York and CES 2019, in Las Vegas, January 8-11, 2019.
