There are noise-cancelling headphones, and then there are devices like the Here One Wireless Smart Earbuds, designed to allow you to filter out only what you don’t want to hear. It sounds far-fetched, but it’s not. Here One is designed to both cancel out monotonous ambient sounds, while also leaving you aware of your surroundings. For example, if you’re using them while crossing the street you’ll still be able to hear a horn blaring or an oncoming vehicle.
It also employs voice amplification technology, allowing you to hear other people better in noisy places. The multi-directional microphones will pick up even low voice tones. Pretty neat, right? They’re wireless too, and will work for up to 2 hours on a single charge. If you need more time – like during a long flight – they come bundled with a portable charging case that has a built-in power pack. The added power allows you to extend use for up to 8 more hours, after a brief charge or two, of course.
Because of the technology embedded within these wireless smart earbuds, they’re labeled as 3-in-1: audio, smart noise cancellation, and voice amplification.
A companion app for mobile allows you to customize settings, update firmware and much more. Yes, you can control the wireless smart earbuds via the mobile app, but they have intuitive touch controls on the exterior, as well. And what are wireless earbuds without an option to take calls? The Here One Wireless earbuds will take calls, and or ignore them if you prefer.
Included with the earbuds are six different tips of varying sizes, 3 each of silicone and foam. You can swap them out to find the best fit for your ears, which is important for devices of this caliber. You don’t want to be wearing buds that aren’t comfortable or pleasant.
To charge the wireless smart earbuds up to 25% when the battery is low, you’ll have to connect them to the charging case for about 15 minutes. If you leave them connected for at least an hour they’ll reach a full charge. The case itself takes about 3 and a half hours to charge separately.
