People pay top dollar for wireless earbuds, and small wonder that they do. They're almost essential tech for music lovers with an active lifestyle, or high-performing professionals who need to multitask when they're taking an important call. Bluetooth earbuds have come a long way in the years since they were first introduced, improving the sound and increasing the range. Other than the price, there's almost no downside to wireless audio.
It's incredibly frustrating when you've gotten into the groove of your favorite playlist, only to have them slip out as soon the workout shifts into high gear. How can we pack all this tech into such a small package, and yet we're not able to make them fit every ear size?
Decibullz may have just cracked the code. This company raised more than $200K on Kickstarter with the promise of a custom-fitted earbud, and their product rollout did not disappoint. The earpieces are made of special heat-activated material that allows them to be molded by the user. Just immerse them in hot water and press them on. The earpieces bend to fit the exact shape of your outer ear, making them perfect for high-intensity exercise, off-road biking or any strenuous activity.
But what about the sound? It's top-notch, thanks to Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and noise isolation tech that can keep outside interference at bay. With the charging case, you can get a full 24 hours of playtime out of the battery. And, IPX7 waterproofing means you don't have to worry about moisture, whether it comes from your sweat or the weather. Pairing is easy with any Bluetooth-enabled device, and they're compatible with common voice assistants like Siri or Alexa.
The best part? Macworld readers can pick up a set of these Decibullz custom moldable earphones for $98.99, a full 33% off the original MSRP.
