Remote Handset Options






Introduction

Since all Bent Audio products include remote control functions all packages include a remote handset. Below are the various handset options and a few notes about each handset's functionality.


Bent Metal Remote Handset

Each Bent Metal Handset is built here by hand using all custom parts - from the extrusion body to the button tops to the PCB inside. Currently there are 3 variations to choose from.


The 13 Button Bent Metal Handset

This is the handset used with any TAP System package - it allows full functionality of the TAP Module functions like right/left balance, direct source selection, and mute, etc...It is also a great choice for OEM projects requiring a full suite of handset functions.

Typical Handset functions for this model include:

  • Volume Up and Down
  • Balance Right and Left
  • Mute
  • Direct Input Selection (1-6)
  • Display on /off - for dark mode listening (or alternately power on/off)
  • Misc relay function (tape or phase typically)

OEM Customers Please Note: We can make variations of the Bent Metal Handset with any number of buttons to exactly fit your requirements. Like other custom designs though this only becomes cost effective when we get to quantities of 50 to 100 units. Please call to discuss your application and if it is a fit we can work together to provide exactly what you need.

Also for our OEM (or advanced DIY builders) we offer the PCB's from inside the Bent Metal Handset along with button tops so that you can integrate these into your own remote cases.
