Tilde earphones by Orosound were chosen by TechHub as one of the 15 coolest earbuds of CES 2017.
15 of the coolest wired and wireless earbuds we saw at CES
The Orosound Tilde headphones aren’t truly wireless—each earbud is connected to the other via a flexible neckband—but they do have a few tricks up their sleeves. These Kickstarter-backed earbuds are designed for “well-being in the office,” according to the company.
Let me explain: The Tildes feature adjustable noise cancellation, which lets you determine how much background noise is (or isn’t) filtered through, as well as a special “talk-in-noise” mode that lets you hear only the person you’re talking to. The talk-in-noise mode filters out ambient noise (including human voices) around you and filters in voices coming from in front of you (within a 60-degree “cone”), so you can easily talk to someone face-to-face in a crowded setting. If you use the Tilde earbuds for listening to music or the “talk-in-noise” mode, you’ll get eight hours of battery life, while if you just use the earbuds for adjustable noise cancellation, you’ll get a whopping 20 hours. The Tilde earbuds will be available this summer for $300.
