The in-earphones were announced just after the iPhone 7, the AirPods and alongside the superb Beats Solo 3 Wireless over-ear headphones, all of which feature Apple’s W1 wireless chip which augments Bluetooth for easy reconnection to your iOS device as well as easy device switching between your iCloud-registered devices.
Naturally, because they’re Bluetooth) they can also be used with Android and older iOS devices, too.
The earbuds are magnetic and the cabling ‘flex form’ so they return to the original shape and don’t get tangled when dangling around your neck as shown here.
These aren’t fitness earphones like the Beats by Dr Dre Powerbeats 3 Wireless (£170), but are instead designed as step-up, lightweight earphones that are be virtually unnoticeable while you’re wearing them.
They’ll also last a decent chunk of time – up to 8 hours after a 45 minute charge – the Fast Fuel feature means they should make it to 2 hours after just five minutes connected to a power source.
