Until now, there were only earbuds like Apple AirPods and in-ear earplugs like Samsung Galaxy Buds in the fully wireless headphone market. This situation was corrected by the American startup Human, which presented its own vision of ideal headphones. A device called Human Headphones turned out to be very unusual and radically different from existing models.
Human Headphones are reminiscent of seashells. They are held on the ears with a special attachment, completely covering them. In addition, the device can be transformed into a portable Bluetooth-speaker. Both headphones are connected to each other with magnets and charged via USB Type-C connector.
The headphones are equipped with 30 mm speakers and four microphones. The latter allows you to communicate with interlocutors directly while listening to music, answer incoming calls and talk with a voice assistant. Music playback and other functions are controlled by gestures and taps on the external touch surface.
According to the manufacturer, one full charge is enough for 9 hours of continuous operation of the headphones. To connect to a smartphone, they use Bluetooth version 4.2. There is also a mobile app to configure your device.
On the website of the manufacturer, Human Headphones can be purchased for $399.
