Bose Sport Open Earbuds

Bose announced the new Bose Sport Open Earbuds — truly wireless sport earbuds that don’t go in your ears or cover them. Instead, they combine Bose OpenAudio technology with an exclusive design to keep you motivated with music, connected to calls, and aware of your surroundings.

Made specifically for workouts, the new Bose Sport Open Earbuds feature a contoured earhook attached to an entirely new kind of enclosure that sits above — not over, not in, and not on — the ear canal to redefine personal listening. Packed with innovation, they let you listen to your world and your playlists during runs, rides, walks, and hikes without compromising privacy. Even at high volumes, you’ll hear your content and conversations — but others won’t. And even during tough training and weather conditions, they’ll stay precisely positioned while resisting sweat, heat, rain, and snow.

The Bose Sport Open Earbuds come in Triple Black, and will be sold for $199.95. Pre-orders started this week today at bose.com and BestBuy.com, and product will be available beginning mid-January.

The new Bose Sport Open Earbuds measure 48 mm wide x 55 mm high and weigh a mere 14 grams per bud. With a simple twist, they gently grip the ear’s outer ridge to lock in place with no ear tip, virtually no skin contact, and without the squeezing and vibrations from bone conduction. Each enclosure uses a tiny dipole transducer placed and positioned for loud-and-clear personal audio that stays at the ear — and “cancels” out everywhere else. An advanced microphone system is also engineered for clarity when you’re talking with family, friends, and your VPA, isolating your voice by reducing the interference of wind and noise, and isolating their voice from being audible to others. For a rock-solid connection, the Bose Sport Open Earbuds integrate an etched antenna and Bluetooth 5.1.

And for ease-of-use, controls are super simple. One button on the left bud lets you access your phone’s native assistant, and one button on the right bud does virtually everything else with straight forward push combinations to power on and off; play, pause, and skip songs; or answer, decline, and end calls.

The Bose Sport Open Earbuds are built and tested to last with an IPX4 rating and 8 hours of battery life. They’re equally compatible with iOS and Android devices. And they come with a protective carrying case, charging base, and the Bose Music App to access additional features.

The new device from Looking Glass Factory, billed as a personal holographic display for your desk, will enable users to share 3D content and is a step toward holographic video calls.

US holographic display developer Looking Glass Factory only announced plans to release the device today, launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund its development.

The real selling point of Looking Glass Portrait is its standalone mode. The device’s in-built computer and software stack can run high-fidelity recorded holographic media at 60fps. It also works in tethered mode with PCs and Macs. Users will be able to upload, edit and load up to a 1,000 pieces of holographic media

Looking Glass Portrait will ship with the new HoloPlay Studio software, which enables users to upload, edit and load up to a 1,000 pieces of holographic media. The device supports Azure Kinect, Intel RealSense and iPhone cameras with Portrait mode capabilities for holographic video capture and sharing. Looking Glass Factory is excited about the potential of Looking Glass Portrait for advanced users. The device supports a range of software, including Unreal Engine, Unity, Autodesk Maya, and Blender, enabling developers and artists to create and share a range of interactive applications and 3D art.

DangoBuds Review – Are These New Earbuds Worth It?

Everyone likes to listen to their smartphone when they are out and about. It is one of the many advantages of having a modern phone. Maybe they are tuning into their favourite playlist while hitting the gym or going out for a walk or a run. Maybe it is not music they are listening to, but an educational podcast or TedTalk, or listening to an audiobook on their commute into work. Perhaps they are fed up with the kids cartoons on TV and fancy catching up on their favourite show on their smartphone. These days, a smartphone is used as our main audio entertainment tool.

Not everyone else in your surroundings will necessarily want to listen to whatever it is that you are listening to, and because of that, you need a high-quality pair of earphones. High-quality is the important phrase here, as anything less can make for distorted and tinny sound. No one wants to be struggling to hear their audiobook or miss a key part of their podcast because the sound quality is poor. Another disadvantage to low-quality, traditional earphones is that they come with wires – and the last thing you want is to get wrapped up in them, or for them to get tangled up in your purse.

There is a solution: DangoBuds earbuds. These could be the answer to your problems here.

We are going to look at the DangoBuds in detail to find out whether they are the right earbuds for your needs.

=> Click here to visit the Official Site <=

What are the DangoBuds earbuds?

DangoBuds are wireless earbuds designed with users in mind, for the ultimate listening experience. Incredibly clear sound and active noise control ensures that it is easy to take phone calls and it is much more pleasant to listen to music, TV shows, podcasts and whatever else it is that you are listening to. There are no wires to get tangled up with, since they are wireless. Using the Bluetooth feature, the headbands are quickly and conveniently connected to your smartphone, so audio can be easily streamed. They can also be connected to your computer, tablet or other devices, if a Bluetooth option is available.

How will the DangoBuds wireless earbuds help me?

Very honestly, whatever you use them for, the DangoBuds inner ear headphones will give a superior audio experience. The sound quality is outstanding, and they have a full noise block, ensuring that whatever it is you are listening to will no longer be disturbed by the sound of traffic, crying children and your partner snoring in bed next to you. With three silicone in-ear tips, in sizes small, medium and big, they are easy to wear, so someone of any ear size will be able to wear them without fretting about them falling out and getting lost. Lastly, because they are wireless and operate up to ten meters from the device to which they are attached, you are not bound to one spot or wrapped up by irritating wires.

More information about wireless earbuds and headphones

Back in 2016, when iPhone manufacturer Apple made the divisive decision to remove the headphone jack from their new devices, wireless earbuds really became popular. People were immediately panicking; how could they listen to music? Thankfully, there are several decent wireless earbuds available today, such as the DangoBuds, so consumers can listen to music without thinking about wires. By placing them in the charging unit, which doubles up as a handy storage box, they link through Bluetooth and are generally charged. This is then normally connected via a USB cable to a computer or socket, which is the only time a wire is required. There is no wire at all with the DangoBuds, however-the box itself is he charging port, which means you can place them in your bag and leave them to charge. A charge takes just one hour, meaning you will not be without your favourite music for too long!

Can earbuds such as the DangoBuds damage your hearing and your ears?

There is no definitive information or studies to clarify this. We know that listening to loud music continually – over 60 percent volume – can cause damage to the ears and hearing ability, but if listened to at a sensible and moderate volume level, it is not thought to damage your ears. There are many rumors and theories about the safety of Bluetooth, but research has so far not substantiated any of these claims and so we can assume that it is not harmful to human health.

Who will benefit from using the DangoBuds earbuds to listen to music?

Rather frankly, they are essential for anyone and everyone who listens to music, podcasts, audio books, or watches films and shows on their mobile phone, or makes calls. They make it possible for you to listen clearly and not miss something important.

For those who want to listen to music when they are out and about because they are wireless, they are especially good. The last thing you need is your wires to get wrapped around you while you are out for a run or weightlifting in the gym. As well as being distracting, it can be a major safety problem. The problem is that many common earbud brands easily fall out of the ears too, but with the DangoBuds there is no such concern. They have three tips of varying sizes, so everyone can find one that suits their ear.
