Earin: Smallest Wireless Headset Charges In Your Pocket
Earin is a new Kickstarter project started by former Nokia and Sony Ericsson employees. Earin is the smallest wireless Bluetooth headset that can be charged in your pocket.
The Earin connects to your phone via bluetooth 3.0 and 4.0 and lasts about 3 hours on a battery. Three hours isn’t too long, but the developers have come up with something for that. The headset comes with a charging capsule in which you can place the earplugs if you are not using them temporarily. While you put the earplugs back in your pocket or bag, the earplugs are fully charged again thanks to the extra battery in the capsule.
The Earin earplugs do not have any buttons or a microphone. So you will still have to grab your phone to change the volume or a song. You will also simply have to take your phone out of your pocket to make a call.
The Kickstarter project has already reached its target of £179,000 within hours. By supporting the Kickstarter project you can buy the Earin headset for 119 pounds (about 150 euros). The first headsets are expected to ship in January 2015. The Earin headset will eventually hit stores for £159.
