Earin Announces M-2 Wireless Earbuds @ CES 2017

  1. AxelCloris Administrator
    Earin, best known for being one of the first to bring truly wireless in-ears to market, are back at it again with a new model they've dubbed the M-2. Like the M-1 before it, the M-2 is completely wireless, compact and possess their own unique style. The M-2 brings a few new features to the party like touch sensitive controls - located at the outermost tip of the earbud - a built-in microphone for phone calls and voice controls and a new proprietary wireless connection that utilizes dual antennas and a Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) array.

    I have little trust in earin and bragi since those companies focused little on sound quality and both received terrible reviews for the slew of problems they had. Hopefully they can make a change for the better

    They look interesting but I think they're just too expensive. They are up against some serious competition from companies such as 1More and V-Moda who are producing some truly excellent wireless headphones. It would be very interesting to try out a pair of these 'earpod' type headphones though. 
     
    Imagine how hacked off you would be if you lost one though!

    Actually, the Bragi has a decent SQ for a single BA.  Probably one of the best IEMs for swimming.  The problems with pairing and sensitive touch controls settled down with later software updates.  The heart rate never did work well an I doubt that will get fixed as other vendors have found and have abandoned in ear HR sensors.

    Interested.  I'd like to know how well the mic works for phone calls and if there's a pass-through so that you can hear people when you are in the office if you need to.  Also, dual-device connect?
     
    I thought that the Bragi sounded surprisingly clear, despite being bluetooth.  Someday, maybe we can get all wireless without losing clarity.  We're very close, and most people can't tell.  I never heard the M1 because I didn't think it had a mic.  Was it good?
