AVANCO HEAR QUADCORE EAR-THINGS
Generally we avoid wireless earbuds here in Most Wanted because wireless earbuds are so in right now and there are roughly a billion different kinds to choose from. But these caught our eye because they claim to be the rst quadcore computers... for your ears!
Because of the batteries and Bluetooth gubbins, wireless earbuds can look a bit, you know, incredibly stupid sticking out of your ears. The normal solution is to spend $1,200+ (plus a visit to an audiologist for mouldings) on custom “in-ear monitors” that look like sparkly hearing aids. The Avanco Hear(s?) are coated in a soft plastic that mushes deep into your ear canal. The transparent thing on the end works both as an antenna and as a way to extract the buds once you’ve had enough rocking and/or podcasts about the French Revolution. Avanco also supports wireless charging, and claims support for over-the-air charging so you can charge the buds even while wearing them!
While it’s great that the Avanco(s?) Hear are small enough to go right in your ear, and are powered by quad-core processors, the actual speaker part appears to take up maybe 20% of the entire bud. Big earbuds are big because they have big powerful drivers for powerful sound. So these might not sound very good.
