Forget the wires or the shouting when it comes to microphone headsets, because the newest set of ear buds promises a wealth of intriguing innovations.

RippleBuds is one of the latest technologies you can find on Kickstarter at the moment. And it’s going fairly well for those behind the scenes, because as of this writing it has 484 backers who have helped raise $54,118, which has surpassed the goal with 29 days still to go in the campaign.

As for describing RippleBuds, you can see what these babies can do in the video below. But let’s just say they will have you talking to friends with clarity, listening to music with joy and looking like a crazy person who talks to themselves as you stroll down the street.

As travelers, we are constantly searching for an audio solution that allows us the convenience of fielding phone calls while also allowing for portable and pristine sound for our respective music and podcasts.

Now we haven’t yet tried out RippleBuds, but the innovation points to a promising future such as that seen in the movie “Her.” We may not wear our pants as high as Joaquin Phoenix or have artificial intelligence operating systems, but we are ever closer to interacting with our smartphone via delicate ear buds.

And these particular buds come boasting technology that promises clear sound for your pals on the other end of the line.

The campaign explains: “With RippleBuds’ innovative Noise Blocking Technology, users can exclude ambient noise and clearly be heard. With Ripplebuds, your voice will be understood even in the nosiest environments.”

The best part, for traveling purposes, is that RippleBuds are extremely portable, inclusive of their very handy charging case.

Just take care to ensure that you know where these things are at all times. Say what you will about regular wired headphones, but they are easier to find in a hurry.

At the moment you can get a pair for $69, which are promised by June. Your order will come with RippleBuds, a recharging capsule, and varied sizes of ear-pads.

It also comes with the knowledge that you are now on the cutting edge of audio technology.
