What’s all this, then? What you’re looking at here, buddy, is the Phantom Air, aka, the world’s first tuneable wireless earbuds. The tech crammed into each earbud enables you to tweak the bass and high frequencies to suit your taste, using Trinity’s removable tuning filters. Interesting. Tell me more! Well, they’re built from ‘premium materials’ (and come in a choice of four colours) and employ 7mm titanium diaphragm drivers. There’s also a Bluetooth v4.2 chip supporting apt-X, AAC and SBC codecs for CD-quality streaming from your device. A unique double antenna helps eliminate signal drops. Nice. So how do I recharge them? The earbuds come with a small charging case that charges the Phantom Air up to ten times. The earbuds will give you around three hours of playback per full charge. You can check the battery level via your Android/iOS device. Can I wear them at the gym? Yep. The CNC precision-machined aluminium shell is coated in a splash-proof hydrophobic layer, making them resistant to sweat and water. The ergonomic design means they’ll feel comfy during longer periods of wear. When do they go on sale? Pre-orders are being shipped right now, with a waiting list, er, awaiting you on the site.
TUNEABLE SOUND The Phantom Air uses the Trinity 5 tuning system, a set of removeable filters that screw into the earbuds to adjust bass and high frequencies MULTI-FUNCTION A built-in mic means you can answer calls on the go. A multi-function button on the side of the earbuds enables you to power on, play or pause music, and skip tracks
