  • Nokia announces Nokia True Wireless V1 and Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones.
  • Both will be available in November in the U.K. and before the end of the year in the E.U.
  • The Pro Wireless Earphones and V1 True Wireless will retail for 69 euros (~$79) and 129 euros (~$148), respectively.

HMD Global announced two new audio products today: the Nokia True Wireless V1 and the Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones. These wireless headphone options are an interesting announcement, considering the Nokia 7.1 –which HMD Global also announced today — retains the headphone jack.

Both products are intended to “compliment your stunning viewing experience on the Nokia 7,” says HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas.

The IPX4-rated Nokia V1 are workout earbuds that operate via Bluetooth 5.0. The earbuds weigh 10 grams collectively. Standalone battery life affords 3.5 hours of music playback, while the charging case provides three additional charge cycles, totaling 14 hours of playback or 16 hours of talk time.  To charge the capsule case, you can connect to a power source via the included USB-C cable. The case uses an LED indicator to notify listeners when it’s charged.

The Nokia True Wireless V1 will retail for 129 euros (~$148) in November.

The Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones support aptX and will retail for 69 euros (~$79) in November.

If you’re worried about losing an earbud, the Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones may be more appealing. The earphones provide 10 hours of playback and, like the popular OnePlus Bullets Wireless, automatically play or pause your music by removing and magnetically clipping the earbuds. 

The Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones support aptX for CD-like audio streaming, are sweat- and water-resistant, and grant virtual assistant access. They charge via the included micro-USB cable and require two or three hours to charge. 

The Nokia Pro Wireless Earphones will retail for 69 euros (~$79) in November.
