Apple’s AirPods aren’t the only wireless earbud game in town. If the idea of earplugs as audio gear entices you, another option on the market arrives from Swedish startup Earin and its M-1 earbuds.

Earin M-1 Wireless Earbuds



Look ma, no wires, and no golf clubs dangling from my ears! Better audio quality than expected.


Massive connectivity issues. No microphone/phone features at all (not even incoming audio). Very weak battery life. Charging system is underbaked and needs a complete overhaul. (Good news: The Earin M-2s come out sometime soon.)
