Introduced silver and gold earrings with real pearls.
Although Nova Audio's pearl earrings look nothing like headphones, they are more than just a piece of jewelry. The H1 Audio Earrings model has integrated speakers hidden behind real pearls, allowing you to direct sound directly into the wearer's ears, without disturbing others at all.
Nova says the technology adds a "layer of sound" to the wearer's surroundings, while still allowing you to perfectly hear what's going on around you, much like open headphones like Sony's LinkBuds or the Aftershokz variant transmit sound vibrations through the bones of the skull. Headphones predictably do not have a noise reduction system, but such a model will be quite convenient for athletes and everyone who wants to enjoy their favorite tunes without sound isolation from the outside world.
Despite the fact that the speakers are outside the ear canals, Nova claims that its technology does not allow other people to hear what the user hears. Provides up to 3.5 hours of music playback and up to 2.5 hours of talk time using four built-in microphones.
The kit comes with an elegant case that simultaneously functions as a charger - it provides up to three full additional charges - in total, the user can get about 14 hours of listening to music. Earrings have built-in buttons that allow you to control both the playback of tracks and telephone conversations.
According to the developers, each earring weighs 7.7 grams, which is quite acceptable for headphones, but, according to some women, earrings of this weight may not be quite comfortable to wear. However, for an all-in-one solution, the option is still quite attractive.
Available in gold and silver versions, the first costs the equivalent of $753, the second - $645, respectively. While the novelties are sold only in Europe so far, Nova promises to begin deliveries to the US and Japan at the beginning of this year.
