BeatsX

Wireless earphones with 8 hour charge

Kate- Community @Tierion
BeatsX are like the lovechild of Beats (or Bose) and Air Pods. Amazing sound quality, wireless, long-lasting battery and the ability to (mostly) tune out the world. Plus, at half the price of the Bose QC35, it's a lot easier to hit "add to cart".
Vinh Pham- 🤤
Beats X are in-ear earbuds that do a reasonably good job of blocking out most of the ambient noise in the environment. I stayed away from Beats products because of their reputation for bad sound quality. That is until I started seeing positive reviews from reviewers who had previously bashed the brand. I picked up a pair on sale back in April and have had no… See more

Well after a few successful crowdfunding campaigns, the company is back today with their newest iteration of truly wireless earbuds dubbed the Air by crazybaby Nano.

Countless companies are selling them and today we review one of the latest products. The CrazyBaby Air Wireless Headphones. Arriving on Indiegogo last year, crazybaby are a well established company.

Nuraphone

Headphones that sense and adapt to your unique hearing

nuraphones use patented technology to sense and adapt to your unique hearing, turning themselves into the perfect headphones for you.

FACT Magazine: Music News, New Music.
Australian startup Nura hopes to disrupt the personal audio business with Nuraphone, a set of headphones that can create a tailored listening experience based on an individual's hearing. Scott Wilson finds out if Nura's technology can deliver on the promise of clearer sound.
Macrumors
The Nura headphones were funded on Kickstarter last year, surpassing a $100,000 goal and earning around $1.8 million from backers who were interested in the device's personal music calibration abilities.
WIRED
Headphones are like glasses: What works for you won't necessarily work for your friend. In many cases what's considered good or bad is totally subjective. To some, bass-heavy cans bring out the beauty in classical music. For others, they can muddle the nuances of flutes and strings.
Magnetic Magazine
When you listen to music, you may not actually be hearing what you think you're hearing. What do I mean by this? First, everyone hears differently. No two people will hear the same sound the same way, just as people don't see colors the same.
YouTube
Nuraphones by Nura, the most interesting tech product I've seen in a long time. This gadget covers your ears with a driver pushing bass in the headphones, go in your ears with a driver pushing treble in the earphones and send a signal into your ears to measure exactly how your ears hear, changing the sound accordingly.
Architectural Digest
Much like with any market-saturated product, consumers have a plethora of options to choose from in the world of headphones. Bose SoundLink, Beats Solo 3, and Skullcandy Ink'd 2 are but a few of the creatively named products available. And with a high demand and an even higher frequency of technological advancements, this specific market is ever-evolving.
TechCrunch
Nura's come a long way since last June. Back when the hardware company last stopped by our offices, its headphones were giant, like a pair of old library headphones recreated on a 3D printer. Their innards were splayed out next to them in a separate control box.
Alphr
The Hi-Fi world is notorious for overblown claims and overpriced equipment, especially at the top end. And headphones are no different: you can spend an awful lot of money for audiophile gear, with no guarantee that you're going to hear any benefit in sound quality over a pair of more reasonably priced headphones.

Mymanu CLIK

Smart wireless earbuds with real time voice translation.

What Hi-Fi?
These Mymanu headphones can translate 37 languages in real time, and will be demonstrated at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Do you remember the Babel Fish, the little translating organism from The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy?
Digital Trends
Real-time translation isn't easy to do, but now a new earbud may be your babelfish. When you're traveling in a foreign country where the dialect's unfamiliar, there's nothing worse than being stuck without a means of communicating.

PowerPod Case

Wireless charging for AirPods

With a new wireless charging case coming later this year, many AirPod users will purchase a brand new case that looks exactly like the old one with the added bonus of wireless charging. The PowerPod Case adds wireless charging, protection, and style to an existing AirPod Case that does not deserve to be retired so soon.

Cult of Mac

With 's decision of removing the headphone jack from their iPhones, became a solution with a couple of setbacks that range from losing the phones altogether or forgetting to charge them and thus running out of battery at the most crucial moment.
