Earin offers a wireless headphone experience without limits

June 16, 2014

There’s a new Kickstarter campaign worth keeping our eyes or ears on. Earin comes to pioneer a new generation in audio. This set of earbuds is said to offer unprecedented flexibility and a true wireless experience. Earin may very well be the true wireless headphone set we have been waiting for.

What’s the problem with current wireless headsets?

Finding the right wireless or bluetooth headset can be a challenging quest. It seems there is always something wrong with such gizmos. Firstly, none of them are truly wireless, even if they don’t connect directly to the audio source. There is always some kind of band or cable bringing the headset together. This makes using wireless devices a bit more uncomfortable than expected.

Bluetooth technology can also be a bit frail. I have returned multiple bluetooth headsets due to weak connections and constant issues. These also tend to not be as portable as expected, sometimes offering over-the-ear form factors and annoying necklace-like contraptions.

I still haven’t found the right bluetooth headset, so I have continued to stick with wired solutions.

How is Earin better?

I am not saying Earin is here to fix all your headphone problems. After all, Kickstarters are not always what we expect, but it does look like a very promising project. We can begin by telling you Earin headphones are truly wireless. They have no cables or plastic connecting them.

Earin-1

These earbuds go right into your ear, offering what the manufacturer promises to be amazing sound quality in the smallest form factor possible. All components are built right into each earbud. These can be stored in a “capsule” that also works as a charger. This capsule literally looks like a keychain, making portability a huge focus.

Battery life is a very important factor. As expected the Earin headphones can’t really go against your humongous Beats Wireless in terms of battery life, but it doesn’t fare very badly, either. Those 50 mAh batteries can make the Earin earbuds last 2.5-3 hours.

Earin-3

Will you Kickstart Earin?

Earin’s Kickstarter campaign will be around for 37 more days, but over 2000 backers have already blown away the company’s £179000 goal. The Super Early Bird special is already depleted, but you can sign up to get these earbuds for just £99, which is not a bad price for a bluetooth headset.

Backers should be getting their Earin earbuds by January 2015, which is a pretty long wait, but it could be worth it. Who is signing up?

  • Who cares anyway

    looks cool, i might want to invest to get some for myself

  • Ryu

    Cool concept. I don’t like in ear headphones, though.

    • MasterMuffin

      Me neither, they just don’t feel good

    If the product actually comes to market, I’d be very interested in them. I own the Jawbone BlueBud X’s and they’re truly great. These would raise up portability even further. 3h battery life is a bit weak though, but it’s to be expected for such a small unit. Excited to see where it goes!

    • Luka Mlinar

      Considering the storage unit doubles as a portable charger, you can extend that to about 6 hours.
      Anyway, another example how we’re limited by slow advances in battery technology :(

  • Hugo Oskarsson

    I’ve been dreaming of exactly this for so long!!! However I’d be scared as hell to move at all with these since dropping them would mean they are lost in the fiery pits off hell forever

  • Jayfeather787

    Looks great. My main concern is getting them out of my ears, though, once I put it in. o.O

  • Kenny Woodard

    Um.. Can anyone else see these accidentally falling out of your ears? Bluetooth headphones are made to be versatile and for active people. I don’t see these expensive headphones taking more than one or two 6 foot drops. In-ear headphones almost certainly have to have a safety mechanism like a cord. Bluetooth headset makers should really focus on minimal over-ear or maybe ones with clips that go around your ears.

    Take My Money!

    My only concern is losing them.

    Everyone is missing the biggest factor here: Water/sweat proof?

  • RichHomieGuan

  • Wilson D

    sorry lg wireless with most amazing battery life

    I would fund this in a heartbeat if they lasted longer than 2.5-3 hours… my current Backbeat Go wireless earbuds last around 4-5

  • The Lion

    would be great but with current battery technology i can see that being the major problem , maybe make them a bit bigger like foam earplug size or half the size of the jawbone icon that has gr8 battery life.

  • frhow

    2.5-3 hours? Seriously. Pass…

  • John A

    Meh!
    I’m gonna stick with my LG Tones. Best headphones Ive bought in a long time

  • cajungun13

    I WANT HEADPHONES THAT ARE WIRELESS AND DO NOT GO IN YOUR EARS BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS FALL OUT WHEN EXERCISING AND SWEATING. I WANT TO PLAY MUSIC OFF AN SD CARD AND HAVE A LITTLE RECHARGEABLE BATTERY INSIDED THE HEAD SET….IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR/??? EVERYONE DOWNLOADS MUSIC THESE DAYS…WHAT DO WE NEED BLUETOOTH FOR…JUST SLIDE THE MUSIC U WANT ONTO YOUR LITTLE SD CARD AND BAM YOUR IN BUSINESS AND DONT HAVE TO CARRY ANYTHING ELSE AROUND…WHO CARES IF IT ONLY LAST AN HOUR THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR GYM TIME!!
