Do you know who loves wires? Nobody. Long gone are the days of headphones being tethered to your phone, and more recently to one another. Truly wireless earbuds, once the exception, are now one of the hottest trends in the wireless industry.

The names of the companies that produce the best sellers are familiar ones — Apple, Google, Jabra, Sony, and Samsung. For lesser known competitors to earn your attention, they need to either offer a similar product for a lower price, or raise the bar by offering more features for the same price.

The Amazfit PowerBuds Pro take the harder route by opting for the latter. While the moniker “Pro” is thrown around a lot these days in tech marketing, the PowerBuds Pro offer an impressive set of specs and features worthy of the name and suited to their audience — discerning professionals.

The features expected to justify their $149.99 price point are all present: Epic battery life (9 hours of consecutive use, 30 hours with the case), active noise cancellation (up to 40db, with 4 different modes), IP55 dust and water protection, LCP liquid crystal diaphragms (yes, the same technology used in Sony’s WH-1000MX3 headphones), automatic in-ear detection, and customizable controls (with a real, pressure sensitive button, on each stem).

Additionally, their exceptional fit and finish and an overall sense of quality matches the expectations set by their price. The Amazfit PowerBuds Pro also offer features particularly appealing to Android users: Google's fast pair connectivity, tethered Google Assistant support, and charging via USB Type-C.

Setting the Amazfit PowerBuds Pro apart from their peers are some unique features. For instance, the earbuds have an integrated accelerometer that actively monitors the angle of your cervical spine and prompts you to adjust your sitting position, encouraging you to correct any bad habits you've picked up while working from home.

They can also automatically monitor volume levels being played through the earbuds in real-time and provide recommendations to help you protect your eardrums. The Amazfit PowerBuds Pro can even offer up suggestions for how much you can listen at certain volumes throughout the week, per the WHO's Making Listening Safe guidelines.

When paired with the Zepp fitness app, the buds offer real-time heart rate monitoring and will even alert you if they sense a dangerously elevated pulse, thus providing accurate exercise heart rate data without sacrificing comfort. They also can automatically detect when the wearer begins running and start to track pertinent information without having to initiate a workout session.

Any tech purchase is a personal choice, as the features that matter most to you are a matter of your preference. If you find this description of the Amazfit PowerBuds Pro to be compelling enough to drive you to learn more, then check them out here.

In celebration of the Amazfit Powerbuds Pro going on sale today, you can actually win a pair when you play the Amazfit Racer game on your mobile device. Good luck!

Apple Should Look Closely At This Stunning MacBook Air Concept - Times News Express

Times News Express 05 July, 2021 - 06:18pm

For those dreaming of a MacBook Air with its metallic profile coated in bright colors, this concept video offers the best look at the dream machine.

As Apple fans eagerly await the debut of new MacBook models rocking a fresh design, a concept render that imagines the ultra-sleek laptop flaunting a colorful spin is grabbing attention online. Apple has carved its own unique place in the consumer electronics industry with its product design philosophy over the years. Spearheaded by the likes of Jony Ive, the classic MacBook Air in its all-metal glory from the Steve Jobs era still remains a design that Apple hasn’t deviated much from over the years, and its inspiration can still be seen on the current-gen M1 MacBook Air.

However, every design has limited longevity, and it could be argued that now’s the time that Apple should give the MacBook Air’s looks a major overhaul, considering the lineup has used the same fundamental aesthetics since 2018. As per recent rumors, a new MacBook Air might make its debut later this year with some key design changes, such as better port selection, new colors, and a return of the MagSafe port. At its heart, users will reportedly find an in-house M2 chip.

The latest concept video comes courtesy of motion graphics artist Devam Jangra and shows a device rocking the flat MacBook Pro’s aesthetics. The keyboard borrows some design elements from the new Magic Keyboard, down to the circular outline of the recessed Touch ID button. Although, the most captivating element is a fresh color profile inspired by the new iMac. Even when compared to the iMac portfolio, the colors on the MacBook Air concept are brighter and more vivid.

Leakster Jon Prosser also recently claimed that the MacBook Air refresh will arrive rocking a vibrant color palette akin to the iMac or the iPad Air (Gen 4). For its part, this concept video envisions the upcoming MacBook Air sporting a sea green, blue, light purple (similar to the purple iPhone 12), orange, pink, yellow, and silver. Another notable design change — which is also a callback to the iBook G3 — is that the bezels are white. Interestingly, the keycaps are also white and appear to be grey from some angles, which is another departure from the black deck on the current-gen MacBook models. Of course, these are concept renders, which means they could be very different to a final product, but Apple has lately grown fond of eye-catching colors, which also means the concept renders can’t be automatically ruled out as just another fantasy Apple product. Either way, this concept does provide everyone with a glimpse of what a MacBook Air would look like rocking some bright hues.
