Huawei introduced the FreeBuds 5 headphones, which stand out with a very unusual design.
As you can see, they look like some kind of frozen liquid, and this is no accident. According to the company, this design was inspired by the so-called Rupert drops – frozen drops of tempered glass, which, due to their internal structure, stand out for their extreme strength.
As for the technical part, they are based on 11 mm drivers, the headphones support L2HC and LDAC, boast an autonomy of 30 hours, but this is taking into account the case, they support fast charging and are protected from moisture (IP54). The company is asking $130 for the device.
Two AirPods 4 models, new AirPods Max with USB-C will be released this year, and new AirPods Pro with a fresh chip are expected in 2025
According to the latest information provided by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is planning to release several new AirPods models later this year.
Gurman previously reported that Apple plans to release two fourth-generation AirPods models and update AirPods Max “at the end of 2024.” On Sunday, February 18, he confirmed that the plan was “still underway.”
Gurman expects the entry-level fourth-generation AirPods to feature a new design with an improved fit, improved sound quality, and an updated charging case with a USB-C port. He’s also expecting more expensive fourth-generation AirPods with active noise cancellation and a speaker in the charging case that can play audio for Find My location tracking.
According to him, Apple plans to stop producing second- and third-generation AirPods after launching two fourth-generation models.
The updated AirPods Max are expected to feature a USB-C port instead of Lightning for charging and wired audio playback, but there won’t be any other major changes, according to Gurman. He said the over-ear headphones may also be available in new colors.
Gurman expects new AirPods Pro to launch in 2025 with design changes and an “upgraded chip” for improved audio quality.
Artificial intelligence in your headphones. Google is working on bringing Gemini to such devices
Google wants to add its latest chatbot Gemini not only to smartphones but also to headphones.
A mention of this was found in the Google application code, and there is a whole line there that says that Gemini will be available in headphones.
Let us remind you that Gemini was recently released on Android, where it can replace the usual Assistant. At the same time, headphones, even Google Buds, will still launch Google Assistant, and not Gemini, when the assistant is launched, even if the latter is installed. Apparently, this is exactly what can soon be changed.
Given that Gemini is a much more capable conversation partner than Assistant, this replacement will clearly appeal to many users.
