vivo TWS 2 ANC + TWS 2e Earbuds : All You Need To Know!

vivo TWS 2 ANC + TWS 2e Earbuds : All You Need To Know!

vivo just introduced the TWS 2 ANC and TWS 2e true wireless stereo earbuds that offer studio quality audio!

Find out if the new TWS earbuds are what you have been looking for!

 

vivo TWS 2 ANC + TWS 2e Earbuds : All You Need To Know!

vivo just introduced two new true wireless stereo earbuds – the TWS 2e and the TWS 2 ANC with active noise cancellation!

They both come with 12.2 mm speakers offering super strong bass, in a pair of feather-light earbuds.

Here is what you need to know about the new vivo TWS 2 series earbuds…

Comfortable Fit

Both vivo TWS 2 ANC and TWS 2e earbuds are ultra-light at just 4.7 grams. But more importantly, they were designed with a G3 curvature that conforms to the contours of your ears.

They also feature an innovative vent design, with front and rear chamber flow to help equalise pressure. You will hardly remember they are there!

Super Strong Bass

Both vivo TWS 2 models come with a large 12.2 mm speaker, which features a carbon fibre composite diaphragm to deliver powerful bass, with crisp mids and highs.

Active Noise Cancellation

The vivo TWS 2 ANC can continuously monitor and cancel the background sound, eliminating up to 40 dB of noise!

You can rely on its smart noise algorithm to intelligently adjust the degree of noise cancellation, or manually choose from three levels – high, normal and low.

It doesn’t matter how loud traffic gets – you will always hear every song and conversation crystal clear!

And a single tap activates the Transparency Mode which lets you clearly hear outside sounds, letting you hear announcements and chat with people as if you were not wearing the earbuds at all.

Microphone Noise Cancellation

Both models come with two external beam forming microphones to eliminate background noise while picking up your voice.

Their duct design also improves wind noise reduction by an astounding 148%, so your voice will always be clear even if you are running or cycling.

The TWS 2 ANC model has an additional microphone hidden within the earbud.  This microphone has a high SNR to help pick up your voice even in the noisiest environment.

Multipoint Connection

Both vivo TWS 2 models can simultaneously connect to two devices, and switch seamlessly between them – like your vivo X70 smartphone and a laptop, for example.

If you receive a call on your phone while watching a video on your laptop, the earbuds will automatically stream the call and switch back to the video after you hang up.

Ultra-Low Latency

Both models have been enhanced with vivo’s dual-coupled antennas to reduce wireless latency, which is critical for online games.

The TWS 2e has a wireless latency of just 117 ms, while the TWS 2 ANC goes as low as 88 ms!

Battery Life

Both models have a battery life of about 7 hours, and 29-30 hours when used with the charging case.

With active noise cancellation enabled, the TWS 2 ANC has a 4 hour battery life on a single charge.

vivo Wireless Sport Lite : What You Need To Know!

vivo just introduced a new pair of neckband headphones – the Wireless Sport Lite!

Here is what you need to know about the new vivo Wireless Sport Lite!

 

vivo Wireless Sport Lite : What You Need To Know!

The new vivo Wireless Sport Lite was introduced together with the new vivo V21 series smartphones on 28 April 2021.

While designed to complement the new V21 and V21 smartphones, they will work well with other smartphones too.

Golden Ear Acoustics

The vivo Wireless Sport Lite boasts an 11.2 mm moving coil for a strong bass, and a high polymer diaphragm for a more powerful bass and to balance the different frequencies.

Its Daikoku aluminium-coated bronze coil also produces more crisp higher frequencies, to match the powerful bass.

It also comes with a double-layered sound chamber, with front and back vents that enable you to feel the music, as well as hear it.

The Wireless Sport Lite was tuned by the renowned Golden Ears acoustics team, to deliver the best possible audio quality.

Ergonomic Design

The vivo Wireless Sport Lite is very light at just 23.9 grams, so you will barely remember it’s there!

For maximum comfort, you can choose from three sizes of soft ear tips to find the perfect fit.

Its neckband is designed to contour comfortably around your neck, and has a flexible memory metal wire that bounces back to shape even after being coiled up.

Low Latency

If you are a gamer or like to watch movies on your phone, you may be worried about the Bluetooth latency.

vivo says that the earphone to smartphone full loop latency was brought down to as low as 80 ms in the Wireless Sport Lite.

This means better gaming audio performance, and no syncing issues with your movies!

Active Noise Cancellation

The vivo Wireless Sport Lite also supports active noise cancellation (ANC)!

It will cancel out ambient noise, so that you can clearly hear your fellow gamers during a gaming session.

It also makes for clear voice and video calls with your family and friends, no matter where you are.

Long Lasting + Tough

The vivo Wireless Sport boasts a long battery life of 18 hours. It also supports fast charging, giving you 5 hours of playback time after just 10 minutes of charging.

It is also IPX4 rated, which makes it splash-proof, allowing you to use it outdoors – in both rain and shine!

 

vivo Wireless Sport Lite : Price + Availability

The vivo Wireless Sport Lite neckband earphones come in two colour options – Blue and Black.

They are both priced at RM 159 (about US$39 / £28 / A$50 / S$51).

Jabra Elite 75t + Elite Active 75t Get FREE ANC Upgrade!

Jabra is introducing a FREE ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) upgrade for all Elite 75t and Elite Active 75t true wireless earbuds!

 

Jabra Elite 75t + Elite Active 75t Get FREE ANC Upgrade!

On 21 October 2020, Jabra announced a FREE ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) upgrade for all Elite 75t and Elite Active 75t true wireless earbuds!

By taking advantage of the superior Qualcomm digital audio processor already built-into the Elite 75t, Jabra is able to introduce this free ANC upgrade via a firmware update in the Jabra Sound+ app.

The Jabra Elite 75t and Elite Active 75t with ANC as standard will be available for purchase in October 2020.

 

Jabra Elite 75t + Elite Active 75t : Now With ANC

The Jabra Elite 75t (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) is their fourth-generation wireless earbuds, offering two key improvements over last year’s Elite 65t.

Improved Comfort + Secure Fit

Jabra used thousands of ear scans from all over the world, to create a profile of the most optimal 3D shape and size for the Elite 75t.

They promise that they will offer an improved fit that is more comfortable and secure, allowing you to use them for long hours, and without fear of them falling out.

Better Battery + Charging Capabilities

Jabra extended the Elite 75t’s battery life by 50%, from 5 hours to 7.5 hours. They also extended its charging case’s battery capacity, allowing the Elite 75t to offer a total battery life of 28 hours, versus 15 hours for the 65t.

The Jabra Elite 75t (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) also has fast charging capability – a quick 15 minutes charge in its charging case will give you an hour of battery life.

Incidentally, Jabra will offer an Elite 75t variant in Q2 2020 that will have a charging case with wireless charging capability, in addition to USB Type C wired charging.

MyControl + MySound (Coming In Q2 2020)

Jabra will introduce two new features through a future firmware update – MyControl and MySound.

MyControl lets you personalise the touch controls, with the option of using either left or right earbud by itself. Otherwise, you can only use the right earbud independently.

MySound lets you create and use a personalised hearing profile using a series of audio tests. This will offer you a significant improvement in audio quality.

4-Microphone Technology

Like the Elite 65t, the Jabra Elite 75t (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) comes with four microphones for clearer voice pickups and better wind noise reduction.

Bluetooth 5.0 Connectivity

The Jabra Elite 75t (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) supports Bluetooth 5.0, which allows for lower-latency audio with lower power consumption. That means longer battery life without the fear of audio dropouts!

IP55 / IP57 Dust + Water Resistance

The Jabra Elite 75t is IP55-rated for dust and water resistance. That means it is sweat- and splash- resistant, but not waterproof. Do NOT take it for a swim!

The Jabra Elite Active 75t, on the other hand, is IP57-rated, which allows for water submersion up to 1 meter deep for up to 30 minutes.

 

Jabra Elite 75t + Elite Active 75t : Price + Availability

The Jabra Elite 75t is priced at USD 179.99 / €169.99 / A$249 / S$288 / RM949.

The Jabra Elite Active 75t is priced at USD 199.99 / €189.99 / A$279 / S$318 / RM999.

Noise Isolation

The Elite Active 75t is also designed to further enhance comfort through optimal earbud design, based on thousands of ear measurements and scans to determine the optimal earbud shape and size.

This provides superior passive noise reduction for an improved sound experience overall. And you can activate the integrated HearThrough feature to let surrounding sound in when needed.

Jabra MyControls

This function enables the user to define the button controls on the earbuds in a few simple steps. Some users may focus on music or media button actions whilst others may want the buttons to revolve around calls. This remap of the buttons further enhances the custom experience for the user.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus : TWS Earbuds Tuned By AKG!

One of the best TWS earbuds in the market are the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus, which are turned by AKG.

Find out if the new Galaxy Buds Plus (Galaxy Buds+) are TWS earbuds you’re looking for!

 

True Wireless Stereo : What Is It?

True Wireless Stereo or TWS for short, refers to the ability to transfer stereo music wirelessly through Bluetooth.

The music player (or smartphone) transmits the music to a TWS Master device, which then forwards it to a TWS Slave device. This allows both TWS Master and Slave devices to deliver stereo music to you

 

Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus : TWS Earbuds Tuned By AKG!

Announced together with the Samsung Galaxy S20 family of smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus or Galaxy Buds+ is their second-generation TWS earbuds design.

Improving on last year’s Galaxy Buds, it boasts a new 2-way speaker design by AKG, and an adaptive 3-microphone system. Let’s take a closer look at its key features…

2-Way Dynamic Speaker System by AKG

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus features a new 2-way dynamic speaker system, tuned by AKG. It combines a tweeter with a woofer, to deliver both clear high notes and a rich and powerful bass.

Adaptive 3-Microphone System

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus also comes with an adaptive 3 microphone system to make sure background noises will never drown out your voice.

The two outer microphones work together with the inner microphone to cancel out background noises, whenever you are on a call.

You can also use it to tune out ambient noise while listening to your music, or whenever you just want some peace and quiet.

Better Battery + Charging!

Samsung greatly improved the battery life on the Galaxy Buds Plus, almost doubling it over its predecessor – from 6 hours to 11 hours!

Even its battery case has a much longer battery life, up from 7 hours to 11 hours! That means you get a total of 22 hours of battery life on-the-go!

Samsung also improved its recharging performance. It now takes just 3 minutes of charging to get you an hour of playback time. That’s 3X faster than its predecessor!

On top of that, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus and its battery case are Qi-certified. That means you can recharge either or both using any Qi-compatible charging pad.

Heck, you can even recharge it on smartphones that support Qi reverse charging, like the Samsung Galaxy S20 /  Galaxy S20 Plus / Galaxy S20 Ultra… and even the HUAWEI P40 / P40 Pro / P40 Pro Plus smartphones!

 

Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus : Price + Availability

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus is available in two colour options – White and Black, with BlueRed and Pink options in select countries, at recommended retail prices :

  • Malaysia : RM 599
  • Singapore : $268
  • United States : $149.99
  • United Kingdom : £159
  • Australia : $299

Jabra Elite 75t : Improved 4th Gen Wireless Earbuds!

The Jabra Elite 75t – their 4th generation wireless earbuds – are here! Find out what Jabra has improved over last year’s Elite 65t, which are already impressive in their own right!

 

Jabra Elite 75t : Improved 4th Gen Wireless Earbuds!

The Jabra Elite 75t (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) is their fourth-generation wireless earbuds, offering two key improvements over last year’s Elite 65t. Let’s start with the official tech briefing on the Jabra Elite 75t :

Improved Comfort + Secure Fit

Jabra used thousands of ear scans from all over the world, to create a profile of the most optimal 3D shape and size for the Elite 75t.

They promise that they will offer an improved fit that is more comfortable and secure, allowing you to use them for long hours, and without fear of them falling out.

Better Battery + Charging Capabilities

Jabra extended the Elite 75t’s battery life by 50%, from 5 hours to 7.5 hours. They also extended its charging case’s battery capacity, allowing the Elite 75t to offer a total battery life of 28 hours, versus 15 hours for the 65t.

The Jabra Elite 75t (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) also has fast charging capability – a quick 15 minutes charge in its charging case will give you an hour of battery life.

Incidentally, Jabra will offer an Elite 75t variant in Q2 2020 that will have a charging case with wireless charging capability, in addition to USB Type C wired charging.

MyControl + MySound (Coming In Q2 2020)

Jabra will introduce two new features through a future firmware update – MyControl and MySound.

MyControl lets you personalise the touch controls, with the option of using either left or right earbud by itself. Otherwise, you can only use the right earbud independently.

MySound lets you create and use a personalised hearing profile using a series of audio tests. This will offer you a significant improvement in audio quality.

4-Microphone Technology

Like the Elite 65t, the Jabra Elite 75t (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) comes with four microphones for clearer voice pickups and better wind noise reduction.

Bluetooth 5.0 Connectivity

The Jabra Elite 75t (US | UK | AU | SG | MY) supports Bluetooth 5.0, which allows for lower-latency audio with lower power consumption. That means longer battery life without the fear of audio dropouts!

IP55 Dust + Water Resistance

It is IP55-rated for dust and water resistance. That means it is sweat- and splash- resistant, but not waterproof. Do NOT take it for a swim!

 

Jabra Elite 75t Price + Availability

The Jabra Elite 75t is available in two colour options – Titanium Black and Gold Beige.

It is priced at USD 179.99 / €169.99 / A$297 / S$288 / RM 949.

Why FreeBuds 3 Is The Best Alternative To AirPods Pro!

Apple AirPods Pro are a popular choice for those who want active noise cancelling earbuds, but there is actually a better alternative – the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3.

Don’t believe us? Find out why the FreeBuds 3 is a superior alternative to the AirPods Pro!

 

Why FreeBuds 3 Is The Best Alternative To AirPods Pro!

Reason #1 : Low Latency Bluetooth Connectivity

One of the biggest problems affecting Bluetooth earbuds is latency – the delay from when the audio data is transmitted to the earbuds, and when the sound emits from the speakers.

High latency causes the sounds and images of the movie you are watching to go out of sync. It is also a big problem in games, where audio cues can mean the difference between winning and losing!

Most TWS (True Wireless Stereo) earbuds like the AirPods Pro uses a binaural single-channel connection, where the smartphone transmits the audio data to the primary earbud, which then forwards one of the channels to the secondary earbud.

This is simpler to implement, but results in greater latency and higher power consumption by the primary earbud.

A select few TWS earbuds use dual-channel transmissions to both earbuds simultaneously, which reduces latency but results in higher power consumption by both earbuds.

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 avoids both issues because it uses their proprietary Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission technology to transmit the left and right channels to each earbud synchronously and separately.

This reduces latency to just 190 ms (lower than the AirPods Pro), ensuring accurate synchronisation, while reducing power consumption!

Reason #2 : Less Chance Of Interference

In public places, interference is a big issue because there is an abundance of both active Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices, and they are all using the same 2.4 GHz spectrum!

This may result in higher audio latencies, or even worse – a disconnection of one or both earbuds from your smartphone!

The HUAWEI Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission technology reduces the chance of interference from other Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices.

Reason #3 : Powerful Kirin A1 Chipset

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is powered by the Kirin A1 – the world’s first Bluetooth 5.1 SoC, which supports Bluetooth Low Energy 5.1 as well.

With an industry-leading 365 MHz audio processor, it is powerful enough to simultaneously perform real-time noise cancellation for both earbuds, as well as real-time 3A call noise cancellation, with automatic echo cancellation (AEC), automatic gain control (AGC) and adaptive noise reduction (ANR) for the microphones!

Reason #4 : More Comfortable Fit

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 is the world’s first active noise cancelling Bluetooth earbuds with an open fit design. Because they won’t close up your ear canals, they are more comfortable to wear for long hours of use.

Its Dolphin Bionic Design is not just aesthetically-pleasing, it’s designed to ensure a more secure yet comfortable fit so you can run and jog without worry.

Reason #5 : Personalised Noise Cancellation

The open design is more complicated to handle because it lets more ambient noise leak in. To correct for that, HUAWEI generated 9 sets of noise reduction profiles, based on extensive research of real human ear canals of different ages, genders, ear sizes, etc.

This lets you optimise its active noise cancellation performance with a simple click in the HUAWEI AI Life app (available in Google Play Store and HUAWEI AppGallery). This gives it a leg up over its competitors that are based on standard ear models.

Reason #6 : Noise Reduction For Voice

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 reduce noise through two mechanisms. Its microphones are shielded by a wind noise reduction duct, so you can speak clearly even if you are running or cycling.

Whenever you speak, the FreeBuds 3 uses bone vibrations to distinguish your voice from background noise, ensuring you are clearly heard even in noisy environments.

Reason #7 : Super Fast Pairing!

Thanks to its support for Bluetooth 5.1, it connects much quicker to your smartphone than Bluetooth 5.0 earbuds like the Apple AirPods Pro.

It is also designed to automatically turn on and pair with your smartphone, whenever you open its charging case. It’s ready to use by the time you place it in your ears!

 

Finally, The FreeBuds 3 Is MUCH CHEAPER Than AirPods Pro!

The eight and final reason – the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) is MUCH CHEAPER than the AirPods Pro!

With a retail price of RM 679 / ~US$163 / £139.99 / ~A$239.99 / S$219, you will get a better pair of wireless earphones with lower latency and better active noise cancellation for both voice and audio… at a steep discount!

So head over to the nearest HUAWEI store to try out the FreeBuds 3, and see for yourself why it’s a better alternative to the AirPods Pro!

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) is available in two colour options – Carbon Black and Ceramic White, and you can purchase it directly from HUAWEI Malaysia here! For more information, see HUAWEI’s FB post!

Here are some online purchase links, with prices accurate as of 1 December 2019 :

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 : Superior ANC For Voice + Audio!

The modern world is noisy, and that’s why so many people are turning to ANC earbuds like the new HUAWEI FreeBuds 3.

In this article, we will take a look at how HUAWEI Freebuds 3 delivers superior ANC for both voice and audio, giving it a leg-up over the competitors!

 

Why Active Noise Cancellation?

For decades, we have been relying on over-ear headphones to reduce external noise from disrupting our enjoyment of music and movies. The covering of our ears with padded ear cups is what’s called passive noise cancellation or reduction.

Some of us even resort to in-ear earphones, where the ear buds are inserted directly into the ear canals. Again, they serve to passively block noise from the outside.

Both of these passive noise cancelling solutions help, but they only offer minimal noise reduction. And even worse – they are uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) delivers far better noise cancellation, and it does this without using thick padding or requiring you to insert anything into your ear canals.

That’s why everyone wants active noise cancelling earphones – once you tried one, you will never go back!

 

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) offers active noise cancellation in an open fit in-ear design, which offers maximum comfort; with a Dolphin Bionic Design to ensure a better fit.

HUAWEI Kirin A1

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) is powered by the Kirin A1 – the world’s first Bluetooth 5.1 SoC. This allows it deliver a stable and fast Bluetooth connection for accurate audio and video synchronisation.

HUAWEI Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission Technology

The HUAWEI Isochronous Dual Channel Transmission technology transmits audio data to each ear bud synchronously and separately, to reduce latency and ensure accurate synchronisation.

Active Noise Cancellation

The Kirin A1 has a fast 356 MHz audio processor, which allows the FreeBuds 3 to capture and cancel background noise in real-time. This allows you to enjoy your music, or calls, even in noisy environments.

Tests have shown that ambient noise is reduced by half, even sudden loud noises like train brakes and car honks.

HUAWEI also allows you to adjust 9 different parameters to fine-tune its noise cancellation performance for more challenging environments.

Bone Conduction Sensor + Aerodynamic Mic Duct

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) does not just reduce noise to your ears, it also reduces noise when you speak!

Its microphones have an aerodynamic duct design to reduce wind noise, and it uses bone conduction voice sensors to pick up your voice vibrations.

When the ambient noise levels are too high, it uses your bone conduction vibrations to enhance the quality of your calls, making sure that your voice is clearly heard above hubbub around you!

14 mm Driver + Bass Tube

In addition to a 14 mm dynamic driver, each ear bud has a bass tube tucked right behind, delivering a louder and punchier bass.

AAC Coding

Unlike most earphones that use SBC or aptX, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 uses AAC coding – the only Bluetooth audio codec that makes use of psychoacoustic modelling to compress the data.

AAC coding delivers significantly better audio quality with lower latency and power consumption. However, it is a processing-intensive codec.

Hence, HUAWEI advises that you pair the FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) with HUAWEI smartphones, because they are designed to encode audio using the AAC codec, instead of the more common SBC or aptX codecs.

Long Battery Life

Thanks to the highly-efficient Kirin A1 chip, the FreeBuds 3 can last 4 hours of non-stop music playback with active noise cancellation turned on.

Its carry case doubles as a portable charger, allowing you to recharge the FreeBuds 3 up to four times!

It even supports wireless charging, so you can use any smartphone that supports Qi wireless charging to recharge the FreeBuds 3 and its charging case!

Super Fast Pairing!

HUAWEI designed the FreeBuds 3 (MY | SG | UK) for easy and fast pairing. Even pairing them for the first time to a HUAWEI smartphone is as simple as tapping on the pop-up window to confirm the pairing!

Thereafter, your FreeBuds 3 will automatically turn on and pair with your HUAWEI smartphone when you open its charging case.

Watch how fast it turns on and connects to the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro! Hint – it’s less than a second!

Warning : Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Does Not Have A DAC!

Everyone knows that the Samsung dropped the 3.5 mm headphone jack in the Galaxy Note 10, but did you know they also dropped the DAC too?

In this article, we will explain why the missing DAC is so important, and what all Galaxy Note 10 users should be aware of before they purchase any USB-C earphones or dongle.

 

What Is A DAC?

Generally, a DAC, short for Digital-to-Analog Converter, is a chip that converts digital signals into analog signals.

In smartphones, a DAC is used to convert the digital audio data into analog audio signals that are transmitted to the speakers or earphones.

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Not Have A DAC?

When a smartphone designer removes the 3.5 mm audio jack, it opens up two possibilities :

  • keep the DAC to support any USB-C dongle or earphones the user may want to use
  • remove the DAC to save space and cost, and add it to the USB-C dongle instead

Samsung chose option B, so the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 lacks a DAC for audio conversion.

 

So What If The Galaxy Note 10 Does Not Have A DAC?

Regular 3.5 mm earphones are passive – that means they rely on the DAC of your smartphone and music player to convert the digital signals.

They will NOT work with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, unless you use a USB-C to 3.5 mm dongle with a built-in DAC.

If you try using passive earphones and a passive USB-C dongle with your Galaxy Note 10, you will get a message that the dongle is not supported, and the audio will play through the speakers instead.

 

Who Cares? It’s Time To Upgrade To USB-C Earphones!

That may be true, but did you know that quite a few USB-C earphones are passive too, and lack a built-in DAC? These USB-C earphones will NOT work with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

Fortunately, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 comes with a nice pair of AKG-tuned active USB-C earphones.

Best of all, these AKG earphones will work with all USB-C smartphones and music players, because it has a built-in DAC!

 

What About External Microphones?

Those who use an external 3.5 mm microphone to improve the quality of their audio recording should take note too.

The lack of a DAC means you need a DAC-enabled dongle to record audio. Anything else, and you will end up with silence.

 

So Which Dongle Should I Buy For The Galaxy Note 10?

Samsung obviously would prefer you to buy their USB-C Headphone Jack Adaptor, which will provide “Ultra High Quality Audio by converting digital files to analog (up to 24-bit / 192 kHz)“.

However, it costs a pretty penny, with a recommended retail price of $14.99 / £10 / ~A$ 21.99 / ~RM 62.99.

If you prefer to purchase a third-party USB-C headphone jack adaptor for less, make sure it comes with a DAC.

 

What Earphones Should I Buy For The Galaxy Note 10?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 already comes with a really good pair of AKG-tuned active earphones. But in case you need another pair, make sure they are active earphones (with their own DAC) :

Two New SOL REPUBLIC Wireless Earphones Launched!

SOL REPUBLIC today introduced two new lifestyle-centric wireless earphones for those who want crisp, smooth sound on the go.

 

The SOL REPUBLIC Amps Air

The first product is the Amps Air earphones, a truly wireless earbud that offers unparalleled Bluetooth wireless technology, comfort, sound, and style.

The SOL REPUBLIC Amps Air is small and ultra-light but can still deliver up to three hours of music playtime. They come with a sleek, portable charging case, which recharges Amps Air up to 15 times. With a built in 2200mAh battery and USB port, it doubles as a portable charger for your phone, a useful tool many seem to need these days.

The Amps Air is contoured to fit the ear and is wrapped in a silicone sleeve with futuristically designed tapered grooves that not only give Amps Air a striking look, but also grips the ear like treads on a tire for a comfortable yet secure fit. The grooves also allow airflow to reduce sweat build up. The result is an earphone that is secure enough for workouts yet comfortable enough to wear all day without the wiring or pain associated with traditionally bulkier earphones.

For quick use, the earphones automatically turn on when you take them out from the case and turn off and recharge when you place them back in. Users can also choose to only connect one earbud for mono sound, a great option for people, like commuters, who want to hear their surroundings as well as their music at the same time.

Users can control their music and their calls, without rummaging around for their phone. From picking up, declining, or taking a second call, to activating Siri voice recognition software or Google Voice Search service, all of these can be done with a touch of the multi-function button.
