Sordin Supreme X2BT: New flexible Bluetooth® hearing protector for hunting and shooting

Sordin launches Sordin Supreme X2BT, a Bluetooth®-based electronic hearing protector designed specifically for hunting and shooting sports. It is based on the SordinFLEX modular design platform – offering a new level of design flexibility.

Sordin Supreme X2BT is Sordin’s second major market introduction in a month. The new product is first displayed today at the IWA trade show in Nuremberg, following last month’s launch of its MIL-classified sibling T2 at SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

X2BT is Sordin’s biggest Bluetooth® product launch for hunting and shooting sports to this date. The new product is a response to growing demand for a wireless, high-end communication headset.

We are happy to meet our hunting and shooting customers’ requests for a new Bluetooth® hearing protector with a high attenuation value.

Therése Wilson, CEO at Sordin

Like T2, the X2BT is based on the new SordinFLEXTM modular design platform. This unique design concept is set to change the global hearing protector industry at the core by providing full design and user-configuration flexibility.

X2BT is more than a first-class headset, it is a complete platform for varying user needs. You can easily reconfigure your X2BT, for example from headband to neckband version, or vice versa, using SordinFLEX accessories – fast, easy and without the need for tools.

We built Sordin Supreme X2BT new from the ground up. Every component is designed from scratch, adding up to a true high-quality hearing protector. There is simply nothing like X2BT for hunting and shooting today.

Christian Nilsson, CMO at Sordin

The modular design also helps to extend the product’s lifetime, since all wear parts are detachable and available as spare parts. Add timeless Supreme values such as robustness, smart electronics and software algorithms, and a firstclass sound experience – and you have a high-value investment for years to come.
