EARIN: True Wireless Earbuds
This week’s roundup brings even more wireless headphone options for your new iPhone 7. Will the flood of new products ever end? Read on!
The M1 Wireless Earbuds ($199 MSRP, same price on Amazon) from Earin—Get it? Ear in?—are designed to be small and sleek. They don’t pack quite the power of some other wireless earphones though, offering just three hours or so of stereo playback on a single charge. (If you want to listen to music in mono, that extends to 11 hours.) The good news? They need just 70 minutes to recharge.
The Mini Wooden Stand for iPhone 7 ($17.45 MSRP) is … exactly what it sounds like: A small block of wood with a slot to display your iPhone, either in landscape or portrait mode. What else is there to say?
The Evolus 3 ($129 pledge) has already made its crowdfunding goal, which means it should be in production soon. The device? Built to charge every single iOS device at once—with charging modules available for the Apple Watch, iPhone, and iPad, plus a USB port to charge one additional item, such as the iPad Pro. It even features a resting spot for your Apple Pencil.
This line of Premium Lightning Cables ($28 MSRP, on sale for $23.95, same price on Amazon) offers a dash of style, coming in five different multi-colored patterns that let you show off just how cool you are. Otherwise? They’re pretty standard charging and syncing cables for Lightning-equipped devices.
Sony’s MDR-1000x headphones ($399 MSRP, same price on Amazon) are noise-cancelling Bluetooth-equipped earphones. They upscale compressed digital sound files for a richer sound to your music, and Sony says the Bluetooth connection transmits up to three times as much data as conventional wireless speakers, also helping create a hi-def listening experience. You get up to 20 hours of playback on a single charge.
Like the Evolus 3, Zipbuds’ Catalyst earbuds ($149 pledge) has made its crowdfunding goal at Kickstarter; this product makes the audacious claim to be the “best-sounding wireless earbuds ever made.” There’s plenty of competition for that title, but Catalyst promises that its product—waterproof, with a variety of earbud sizes to help you get the best fit—will be in the mix.
