Advances in technology have made TWS earphones smaller and lighter than ever, but here’s the awful truth: nearly every one of the buyers has been plagued by the hidden dark side of those earbuds —— they are easy to lose, hard to find, inconvenient to carry in the bulky case and frequent to run out of charge.As a group of audiophiles fascinated by innovations in electronics, the team decided to create a revolutionary solution to these pitfalls, to bring true freedom out of truly wireless earbuds to music lovers, and to set the bar for all future TWS earbuds.

3. Vie Petite: Petite earphones for Petite ears
True Wireless Earphones are often too big for many wearers’ ears. Not only do they hurt and fall off constantly, especially for those who have tiny ears such as women and children, but the ill fit results in poor sound even with expensive sets of earphones.Vie Petite’s patented articulating speaker system is omnidirectional and moves naturally to fit the angle of your ear delivering optimal sound directly to your eardrum. This reduces stress on the ears and provides the most comfortable listening experience.When it comes to speaker size, size really matters. The bigger the speaker, the richer sound you can experience especially on the low bass side. Most true wireless earphones employ a relatively small 6mm speaker within a big housing.

8. FARO UNIT 1 A Sleek Visibility-First Smart Helmet
Cycling accidents on the street are often caused by a lack of visibility and unclear communication. Drivers and other riders not seeing you well enough or not knowing what you’re going to do next. 80% of riders use cycling lights and still don’t feel safe. Why? Because they’re small and sit quite low. On top of that, they are easily lost, forgotten or even stolen. Helmets aren’t exactly stylish, we get it – add some lights and it only gets worse. So FARO set out to design an urban helmet that is safe, comfortable & ventilated but also sleek & stylish. Designed every inch of this thing like a proper product, including the lights: they were integrated in a way that they’re truly part of the helmet.
