Those who love to listen to music on their mobile devices always have an ongoing tussle with their earphones, headphones, earbuds, or whatever it is they use to listen to their favorite songs. The wireless aren’t really wireless, and the bluetooth headsets/earbuds aren’t that great for sound tripping. A new Kickstarter project claims that it will solve all your wired problems by bringing you a truly wire free earbud experience with their HearNotes Premium WireFree Earbuds.
The HearNotes earbuds may be the first, or one of the first, truly wireless audio accessories, which doesn’t sacrifice audio quality as well. The entire package includes two premium earbuds, a versatile transmitter, and a wireless charging base. The 1.5 x 1.3 x 1.4 inch earbud doesn’t skimp on the sound quality and instead promises to deliver “perfectly balanced, hi-fi stereo audio.” The transmitter itself can be connected to any smartphone, TV, computer or any audio source, since it uses the standard 3.5mm audio jack. It also has a range of up to 50′ of WireFree range. The charging pad also serves as a carrying case. You don’t need to plug the earbuds or transmitter. Just place it in the case and it will charge inductively.
Probably one of the most unique things about it is that it doesn’t use the industry standard when it comes to “wireless” devices, Bluetooth. Instead, they came up with something from the ground up, and it only has one purpose: “WireFree music listening”. It’s called Kleer technology and its goal is to give you not just hi-fi stereo audio, but also lossless CD quality, immunity from any wireless interference, and universal device compatibility. It would be interesting to see if it really will be better than Bluetooth, which isn’t that great, audio-wise, as we all know.
HearNotes’ Kickstarter campaign has 32 days to go to reach their goal of $75,000. If you believe in their product, you can back them up for as low as $50, which will already include a set of the WireFree Earbuds.
This is a crowdfunded project, and as such may not deliver what its creators initially promise. Most crowdfunding sites, like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, have policies about what happens to your money if the project fails to deliver on its goals, but choosing to back a project is inevitably a risk.
