True wireless earbuds are everywhere these days, no thanks to Apple’s infamous AirPods which have seemingly taken the world by storm. A bevy of options are now available ranging from incredibly expensive — and functional — to cheap and affordable. But most of these headphones share one thing in common. They sacrifice sound quality in order to achieve a minimal design and form.
The MEZONE team aims to change that with their True Wireless Stereo+ Earbuds. They are IPX7 water-resistant, fit snugly inside the wearer’s ear and offer up to 80 hours of continuous playback, and up to 8 hours of that is from the earbuds alone.
What Are the MEZONE True Wireless Stereo+ Earbuds?
The MEZONE earbuds have an ergonomic design which offers a snug fit.
Let’s get this straight right off the bat, on paper they are “true wireless” earbuds like any other. They slip inside your ear canals to deliver high-quality audio streamed from a nearby smartphone or Bluetooth device. On a single charge they will last for eight hours of continuous playback on their own. But a charging case with a built-in power pack — standard for these types of headphones — offer additional playtime, up to 80 hours of playback.
All of that is pretty standard, though. What sets the MEZONE earbuds apart from everything else is the use of DSP or digital sound processing technology, augmented by passive noise isolation and a unique inner 3D cavity. DSP creates a “perfect balance” of treble and bass, while the unique cavity offers an acoustic 3D surround experience.
The earbuds fit snugly and stay in place, allowing free range of movement.
More importantly, the earbuds include an ergonomic design that also allows them to fit snugly inside the wearer’s ear, so snug, in fact, that they will stay in position even during sleep.
Where Can I Get Them?
A unique cavity inside each earbud helps create an acoustic 3-D surround experience for the wearer.
The MEZONE team originally turned to Kickstarter to get their project funded, which is already successful — over $350,000 has been raised currently well above the $10K goal. If you want to help support the project or simply pre-order a pair of earbuds pledges start at $75 for the earbuds, a Type-C USB charging cable and varying size ear adapters. There are additional bundles available that include more accessories, as well. The first shipment are expected to go out in June, 2019. Everyone else should be able to purchase the MEZONE true wireless earbuds shortly after.
We’re excited to see how the MEZONE earbuds turn out, especially since the team promises high-quality audio. It really is a trade-off choosing wireless earbuds over conventional headphones, many of which don’t include noise cancellation and optimal sound.
