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
