If you’re not a fan of wearing large, oversized headphones and are looking for something more discreet, then you might want to check out Earin, a new Kickstarter project that’s looking to raise £179,000 (USD $303,720) to help deliver the world’s smallest wireless earbuds. How small are we talking about? Consider that they measure in at 14 millimeters by 20 millimeters and weigh only 5 grams. From the video that Earin’s creators have posted, the earbuds are barely even noticeable when someone is wearing them and they look like standard small earplugs.
The earbuds deliver your music via a Bluetooth connection with your smartphone and promise to deliver between 2.5 and 3 hours of battery life per charge. The earbuds also come with a convenient little battery capsule that you can attach to your keychain and bring with you wherever you go. You will need to charge the battery capsule with a USB port, however, so charging your Earin won’t be wire-free.
You need to pledge £79 (USD $134) to get your own pair of Earin earbuds, although this is actually around half off the suggested retail price. Earin expects to start shipping orders in January of 2015.
