When I first saw the ‘Here One‘ earbuds online one of my first thoughts was, “Ohhh I wonder what those look like…inside!” Fast-forward a few weeks and Yoo-Yoo Yeh from Mindtribe has a write-up examining that very curious question! I’m also still curious what is inside the docking station – I mean a USB charging circuit, yeah, but I’m curious about the layout and general engineering decisions therein (just because I’m curious like that).
One product, the Here One wireless earbuds, sets to shape the way consumers interact with their devices by incorporating “smart” noise filters – a feature the existing Apple AirPods do not offer. They also boast the nifty, new low-power Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) communication protocol for synchronization between earbuds, in addition to the usual Bluetooth communication to your phone, all packed into a neat little ear-stuffable button. This is in comparison to the AirPods, which use only Bluetooth.
