The main feature of the novelty is a different technology of delivering sound to the user (by bone conduction, without using the auricles). Headphones are attached over the user’s ears, and the speakers are closer to the temples. Sound transmission is carried out by means of vibrations, without involving the eardrums in the process.

Working in this mode allows the user to keep their ears open and hear the surrounding reality. In other words, AfterShokz OpenMove AS660 does not have a negative effect on hearing and makes the likelihood of getting into an incident due to a car coming out of nowhere close to zero.

The QCC3024 processor is responsible for the device’s performance. The duration of work in constant listening mode specified by the manufacturer is 6 hours. The earbuds support Bluetooth 5.0. Their filling with the energy necessary for work is done via USB Type-C. The device is protected from moisture according to the IP55 protocol. This means that the owner can use the device in drizzling rain.

The AfterShokz OpenMove AS660 are currently available for purchase on a collective funding basis. The cost of the product on the Youpin site is $ 88. After the launch of headphones into mass production, the price will rise.

Tesla can now produce its own headphones and speakers

Published

on

Tesla now has the ability to sell audio equipment under its own brand. The automaker filed for a trademark in the new category two weeks ago.

Tesla has applied to use the “Tesla” and “T” trademarks. The category covers microphones, headphones, digital audio players, sound transmitters, speakers, subwoofers, ear pads, audio interfaces, equalizers, and so on.

It is important to note that companies sometimes apply for trademarks that they end up not using. For one reason, Tesla designs its own speaker for its vehicles and labels them with its own brand and logo. Or Tesla may actually be designing its own headphones.

In recent years, Tesla has paid special attention to the sound system of its vehicles. The sound system in the Model 3 has been well received by audiophiles, and the sound system in the new version of the Model S also received positive reviews. It has been compared to the expensive Bang & Olufsen system often used in premium cars. At the same time, Elon Musk commented on this comparison: “Tesla audio engineers came from B&O and many other companies. Our system is well programmed, so we continue to improve it with updates.”

More recently, Tesla has also hired several engineers from Jawbone and Amazon Lab126, where they are developing the Echo speakers.

Realme Buds Air 3, details that may interest Internet users

Published

on

Launched almost a year ago, the Realme Buds Air 2 have been very well received by the general public thanks to their excellent value for money. The question is whether, through the improvements proposed by the Realme Buds Air 3, they will arouse as much interest.

MySmartPrice is an online research and information platform on the latest technologies: mobile phones, headphones, household appliances, computers, etc. Recently, she brought to light the characteristics of the Buds Air 3 headphones from the Realme brand.

Of course, the Chinese firm plans for improvements, but our source claimed that she also preferred to keep some of the peculiarities of the Buds Air 2 headphones.

Realme Buds Air 2 vs. Realme Buds Air 3

Why would it be interesting to compare two products from the same supplier? In fact, this is to give you an idea of ​​the improvements made in the Realme Buds Air 3 compared to its predecessor.

Some of the biggest assets of the Buds Air 2 are:

  • The custom R2 chip, with 35% lower game mode latency and up to 80% longer battery life than its predecessor.
  • 10mm speakers. Thanks to its DLC carbon coating, the helmet produces very rich bass, embellished with a perfectly clear sound;
  • An ANC (active noise cancellation) option, reducing noise by up to 25 decibels;
  • The Bass Boost+ mode which improves the bass and maximizes the power of the speakers.
  • Its long battery life, up to 22.5 hours in playback mode with ANC activated. By disabling this option, this duration can go up to 25 hours.

What about Buds Air 3? In fact, for this new version, the firm would offer:

  • Better battery life, up to 30 hours in playback mode, ANC off;
  • The ability to customize the audio experience according to user preferences;
  • The ability to connect the headphones to two devices, simultaneously. In fact, it would be possible to switch between the two connected devices.

Could these improvements be of interest to consumers?

Note first that the design of the Realme Buds Air 3 should be similar to that of the Buds Air 2. Similarly, the brand would have preferred to keep the Bass Boost+ mode (rather than improving it), as well as the intra detection function. -auricular. This allows music playback to be automatically interrupted regardless of the earpiece removed. Just like the previous model, the Realme Buds Air 3 will obviously have low latency in game mode.

The estimated price of this product is around 4,000 rupees (47 €), compared to 3,299 rupees (39 €) for the Buds Air 2 when they were launched.
