Wireless headphones will become essential at the end of the year, especially taking into account Apple’s decision to give up the 3.5mm heaphone jack. Libratone took advantage of this and already prepared a pair of on-ear headphones that are wireless, noise-canceling and can be controlled through tap instead of using the phone #objectmagic
Libratone Q Adapt connect to your smart devices with Bluetooth 4.1 and let you answer a call hands-free thanks to a built-in mic. They’re totally manageable with gestures. Instead of adjusting the volume, answering a call or skipping a song from your playlist using the phone, simply tap. Tap on the sides of your ears and move your hand in front of them to mute volume. Pretty ingenious, right?
Another thing to remember: they can be synced with another pair so you and your buddy can listen to the same tune or movie, no matter where you are. If the battery dies (after 20 hours of usage), you can charge it with a cable that uses micro USB connection.
Libratone unveiled an in-ear pair too that has a Lightning cable connection so you can connect it to your phone or charge it from your Mac. It’s also touch-sensitive. Best of all? Both connect to a noise-canceling app called CityMix, available for iOS and Android. There you select how much of the ambient sound you want to hear.
Both will go on sale in late October, from
