Truly wire­less ear­phones (i.e. ear­phones that don’t even have a wire con­nect­ing one ear to an­other), have tech­ni­cally been around for over a year, and have been fan­ta­sised over long be­fore that. With the re­cent re­lease of Ap­ple’s own Airpods, it’s no sur­prise to see a few hope­ful en­tries into the cat­e­gory at this year’s CES. Some, such as the Body­trak, of­fer the full “hear­able” ex­pe­ri­ence, which in­te­grates smart ‘wear­able’-style tech­nol­ogy like bio­met­ric mon­i­tor­ing of mul­ti­ple vi­tal signs. Af­ford­able op­tions geared more to­ward pure lis­ten­ing plea­sure, of­ten with a fit­ness slant, were much more preva­lent at the sum­mit than the smarter hear­able tech — a lot of these be­ing of­fered around the same $250–350 price point, hint­ing at a more con­sumer-friendly en­vi­ron­ment for our ‘truly wire­less’ fu­ture.
