There’s one thing I always hated about modern technology: it comes with a lot of wires! Don’t get me wrong, I am happy I live in the 21st century and I have access to things no one even imagined 40-50 years ago! Wires are a decent price to pay to get access to all this technological marvels! But I still hate them!!!
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and wireless charging made my life a bit easier, and I am looking forward for new technological advancements that will allow replacing all the remaining cords and cables around the house.
The Earin earphones are another step in this direction. The wireless earbuds are small enough to be titled as “Almost Invisible” (check the pics), connect to each other and to the player via Bluetooth and have a battery life of abound 3 hours on a full charge. The Earin earbuds have an incredible low weight of 0.17oz (5 grams) each and come with a charging capsule (weights around 0.88 oz – 25 grams) which doubles their play time. The charging capsule also serves as storage, so your earbuds are safe when not in use, and it was designed as a compact keychain for maximum portability.
The Earin buds are compatible with iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Mobile devices, Windows and Apple laptops and tablets, basically any gadgets that works on Bluetooth 3.0 and Bluetooth 4.0 protocols.
The Earin wireless earbuds are in project stage at Kickstarter and you can secure a pair for an early bird price of $202 US (retail price will be around $253 US). The project already reached its funding cap (it raised 506,916 GBP – that’s x3 more than what was expected) and the delivery is scheduled for January 2015.

Bluetooth headphones improved a lot over the years. I remember my first wireless headphones used to loose connection anytime I placed my MP3 in the pockets on the opposite side of the body. Since then, things changed a lot.
While the Bluetooth protocol itself advanced allowing more and more customization and features implemented into headphones, the manufacturers also did a great job coming to the market with amazing quality products – also check the Swipe Bluetooth Headphones.
One of such products is the Jabra REVO Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headphones. Not only the headphones allow you to enjoy your music and phone calls wires free, but, in case you run out of battery, you can use a 3.5mm cord to connect them to your smartphone or MP3.
The Jabra REVO comes with the award winning Jabra Sound App which provides High Definition Dolby® Digital Plus enhanced sound. The controls are placed on the headphone turntable and, in conjunction with the Jabra app, allow easy music and calls management. Another cool feature is that the headphones can be folded when not in use – which allows convenient storage and transportation.

Bone conduction headphones get more and more popular with sports lovers. They’re easy to use, they offer great quality audio and all this without having to stuff your ears with all kinds on silicone buds.
A while back we featured the AfterShokz M2 which allows runners to listen their favorite tunes and answer quick calls while still being attentive to what’s happening around. Today, we’ll check how FINIS SwiMP3 keeps you entertained while you do your daily quota of swimming laps.
The FINIS SwiMP3 is also based on the bone conduction system. There are no ear buds, no headphones or anything else to stick in your ears. The bone audio transmission “bypasses the ear canal by vibrating through the bones, sending sound directly into the inner ear” and allows crystal clear sound even when submerged in water.
On the technical side, the SwiMP3 comes with 2GB of storage (as we’re used to iPhones and other smartphone with 8, 16, 32GB of storage, 2GB might not seem much – but still … 2GB of storage means over 30 hours of music listening and more than 500 songs), includes a rechargeable Li-Io battery with 8+ hours of music listening, is completely waterproof, it features two hydrodynamic clips that securely attach to goggles straps while staying on your cheeks for audio transmission, it can play MP3 and WMA formats and it is compatible with Apple’s iTunes music management software.
Personally, I swim without music. I enjoy having those 30-45 minutes just for me, without any sound interference. I enjoy swimming time to organize my thoughts, plan things and just let my mind wander around … How about you? Are you the type that needs music with all types of exercising?
