Earin’s new M-2 earphones are small but mighty
We are drowning in headphones, strangled by cables. Earin’s new M-2s are designed to bring a little wireless convenience to your listening experience, combining ease of use with design elegance. Most people point to Apple’s innovative AirPods from 2017 as the start of this trend, but they weren’t the first devices deploying Bluetooth to break the chain between phone and ear – the earliest truly ‘wireless’ earbuds arrived in 2015. The Apple Effect, however, has ensured the market is now flooded with imitators of varying degrees of quality.
Earin has a very premium take on design and technology, ensuring that the M-2s are a great listening experience first and foremost. Ultra compact, the M-2s don’t compromise on either sound quality or noise reduction. They pair easily through Bluetooth and additional tweaks can be made from an accompanying app, including the ability to dial up the amount of ‘transparency’ you get from the noise-cancelling function – let as much of the outside in as you like.
The earbuds fit snugly enough so you’re never anxious about losing them; calls and music can both be controlled through tapping the unit. The slim aluminium travel case doubles up as a mobile charge bank, and there’s a reasonable four hour battery life which is more than trebled when you have the fully-charged case to hand. Finally, a long press on the earbud calls up your digital assistant of choice, letting you ask questions and have the wisdom of the net piped straight into your ear. For such a tiny package, the M-2’s have a seriously impressive set of skills. §
