Optoma has just released its NuForce BE Free6 truly wireless earbuds ($99) - a redesigned upgrade to the company’s NuForce BE Free5 truly wireless model.
IPX5 sweatproof-rated, theearbuds feature the latest AAC high-quality audio technology for both Apple and Android, as well as Bluetooth 5.0 with unique antenna positioning to deliver audiophile sound and connection reliability. They also incorporate noise-cancelling microphone technology with wind noise reduction.
Their new Mono Mode allows the earbuds to be used independently from each other, or simultaneously with different users and content. The company says the earbuds’ audiophile-quality sound is enhanced by their graphene-coated drivers, enabling delivery of both deeper bass and clearer high frequencies.
The use of Bluetooth 5.0 technology, says Optoma, makes for better connectivity, faster source connection, lower latency and longer battery life – to the tune of six hours within the earbuds with three full charges, or an additional 18 hours via the charging base (charging is via USB-C).
Optoma says it leveraged analysis of more than 1,000 human ears to design these earbuds for secure fit as well as comfort. They are designed with weight balance closer to the user’s ear, resulting in a more secure fit. Their design innovation also extends to the antenna, which has been located furthest from the listener’s ear for minimum interruption, according to the company.
The earbuds’ controls are ergonomically placed for the most common music functions and can activate Siri and Google Assistant. And once they are paired, they will automatically connect when removed from the case and will disconnect once returned to it.
