Swedish earphone manufacturer Earin is aiming to up the game in hearables with the release of its new earpieces.
Previously the European darling of Kickstarter, Earin is using CES to announce the Earin M-2 True Wireless Earbuds. Crunchwear had a preview of the new iteration, which on first inspection, look both stylish and light, and the demonstration of its audio capabilities certainly suggested that Earin has overcome many of the issues other companies have had with sound dropout and noise disruption.
According to the company, the M-2 earbuds are designed to create a seamless user experience like no other – answering calls, playing/pausing music, and skipping to the next song – all with a touch interface on the tip of the earbud. With a unique shape that creates isolation from the outside world, “catching the sound” where it sounds most natural – in your ear – the M-2 earbuds will be the smallest and lightest available on the market. The magnetic docking capsule both stores and charges the earbuds, offering three hours battery life with one charge and 12 hours of music.
“The hearables category is expected to grow to a $16 billion market by 2020* and we are leading the field with a True Wireless product designed to provide increased functionality that solves the current issues of smart audio devices found in the marketplace today,” said Kiril Trajkovski, co-founder and President of Earin. “Our top-notch team of audio, electronic, mechanical and software engineers worked hand-in-hand with our in-house product and antenna designers to create a fashionable ‘ear’gonomic design and technology that addresses both wireless stability and audio quality.”
The company says it plans to launch in Q2 with a price point of $299 in the US.
