"Ripple Buds" is the world's smallest Bluetooth headset. Earphones with a noise canceling mechanism and microphone functions are packed in a small body that fits inside the ear.
Earphones with a noise canceling mechanism are no longer rare. But when it comes to a size that fits wirelessly in your ears, isn't it unique? In any case, with this feature, you can enjoy music and sleep soundly in a quiet environment without being bothered by the noise of trains and planes.
The biggest selling point of "Ripple Buds" is that it has a built-in microphone. The built-in microphone can pick up the voice transmitted through the eustachian tube and eardrum. This allows hands-free conversations with your smartphone in your bag or pocket.
The same can be done with ear-hook headsets. However, they weigh about 6.5 to 15 grams. On the other hand, the "Ripple Buds" weighs 4.5 grams, which is quite light. You won't get tired even if you wear it for a long time.
Use a dedicated capsule for charging. The capsule has a Micro USB connector and can be charged by connecting it to a smartphone charger or PC via a USB cable. It can be used for about 5 hours on a single charge.
The developer, Team Ripple Buds, is currently conducting a campaign to recruit investors on the crowdfunding site kickstarter for the commercialization of "Ripple Buds". At the time of this writing, a $ 119 investment is available for the stereo version of the Ripple Buds (set of two) and a charging capsule. The retail price after the campaign is expected to be $ 179.
When it gets so small, it looks like a spy's seven tools. It's extra care, but every time the technology evolves, spy movies including "007" will become difficult to produce. I sympathize with you. "Ripple Buds" is a headset that even makes you feel like that.
