It was four years ago when Earin launched its Kickstarter campaign for the M-1, one of the first examples of a truly wireless set of earphones. Now, in 2018, the landscape has changed greatly, with many different companies big and small offering wireless earbuds, earphones, and headphones - simply put, there are a lot of different options to choose from. Despite the crowded market, Earin has debuted its successor to the M-1, called the M-2, and is making them available for sale starting today.
The Earin M-2 was first announced last year, so this isn't the first time we are seeing them. But, it is the first day that you'll be able to purchase them and they are priced at $249. The Earin M-2 claims to offer high-quality audio and features four microphones that will dampen environmental distractions, and bring better clarity when on phone calls. The device offers touch controls, even allowing users to summon Google Assistant.
When you go to put on the earphones, you won't have to decipher which earphone goes into which ear, as Earin is using accelerometers, to ensure that no matter how you put the earphones in, they will always calibrate and know which channel is right and which channel is left. The earphones also employ NXP's NFMI MiGLO technology to keep audio synced, reducing the chance of audio delays.
The M-2 will come with a stylish aluminum carry case that also doubles as a portable charger. The firm states that the earphones will get about three hours of listening time on a single charge. The charging case can offer up to 14 additional hours of listening time.
While there are plenty of different devices out there, the M-2 is a fairly sleek option. As stated before, you can now purchase the Earin M-2 for $249.
