It’s understandable if you don’t recognize the newest iteration of headphones, because they have lost a great deal of weight.
With four days left in its campaign, more than $1,000,000 has been raised, signaling the rise of the invisible headphones.
Well, to be exact, the headphones are merely hidden within your ear, perfectly situated like the ear pieces used by secret spies.
The following video will introduce you to audio accoutrement that takes up the scantest of luggage space and can go just about anywhere, including water.
For the next few days you can still get in a donation to the Indiegogo campaign. For $149, you get a pair of Phazon earbuds, which are promised to ship by July 2016.
What sets these earbuds apart from regular headphones is obvious: there are no wires. However, when you dig just a bit deeper, you find that there is a wealth of technology in these small buds that demand your attention.
There is passive noise-cancellation technology, so they are presumably perfect for that long airplane trip you would normally dread.
It also seems perfect for the adventurous traveler who might listen to music while traversing the globe in the air, land or sea as they are also water resistant.
The one thing we were also intrigued by is its feature of answering phone calls. At this point, we haven’t tried out a pair, so we don’t know if you can actually hold a conversation or how good the quality might be in that regard.
And really, we don’t know how these work at all, so for the moment we will have to rely on testimonials:
As you can see, the buds as well as the charging case are near miniscule:
This would make finding them a chore or, rather, losing them an absolute breeze. Thankfully, there is a location tracker on Phazon’s app.
You might not want to lug around a huge set of headphones on a trip, which is a shame especially for the business traveler out on a trip alone.
There is a certain joy in walking around a city with music blaring into your ear holes. Fortunately, these definitely solve the issue of luggage space.
