All brands want to sell their own version of true wireless headphones. HP announces its Elite Wireless Earbuds at CES 2021.
The HP Elite Wireless Earbuds take the same concept that we already know a hundred times: two small wireless Bluetooth headphones to connect with its devices, and a box allowing them to be recharged easily and itself incorporating a battery. For HP, this product is a logical accessory to a laptop PC for listening to music at work or participating in online meetings.
Compatible avec Microsoft Swift Pair
The Elite Wireless Earbuds are therefore Bluetooth 5.0 headphones, which benefit from the Swift Pair protocol to connect to Windows 10 thanks to a simple notification. Those who have used AirPods in the Apple ecosystem are already familiar with this quick and convenient connection system. Obviously, the headphones are also Android and iOS compatible to work with your smartphone or tablet.
HP promises a fast recharge allowing the headphones to recover 1 hour 30 minutes of autonomy in 15 minutes of charge, for a total recharge which amounts to 120 minutes. The box also takes 120 minutes to charge via its USB-C port.
On the sound side, HP announces that the headphones use 9.2 mm drivers for a frequency range of 20 Hz to 18 kHz. True wireless benefits from passive isolation, but also from active noise cancellation.
Release planned for spring
The HP Elite Wireless Earbuds are slated for April 2021 with an announced price of $ 199 in the US.
