Believing that the love/hate relationship with earbuds is real, Scandi Electronics have come up with new smart earrings. Named Swings Bluetooth Earrings, they have been designed in a way that they are not so easy to fall out. They have done this by developing them as earrings that double up as earbuds too. Clever? Maybe.
Designed FOR women BY women, founder Melissa Eldridge has come up with patent-pending Bluetooth earrings for pierced ears that will easily “swing” into your ears whenever you want to listen to music or relax to a podcast. Eldridge, who is a consumer electronics expert with over a decade of experience shared, “After years of struggling to keep my own earbuds in, I knew there was an opportunity to make a better product. Swings are simple to wear, provide stability and combine function with fashion!”
Swings Hearables for Comfort and Stability
Using advanced audio technology, the wearable art is comfortable and provides stability when in use and can be easily paired with an iPhone, Mac, iPad and Android. Each earpiece has it’s own mic and noise cancellation technology including touch sensors/motion accelerometers, 5 hours of battery power, and hypoallergenic, nickel-free stainless steel posts.
Besides the more fashion focussed Swings earings, there is also the Swings Sport. They are sweat-resistant and shockproof and feature lightweight, silicone bands. Swings Sport combinations include sleek all-black or upgraded Swings Sport Color pack, in violet, yellow, pink or red. Swings Sport will retail for $179.
Swings Hearables, Designed FOR Women BY Women
Personally, I like the idea behind these smart earrings. They sound super functional, but I do not think that the design will appeal to everyone. Also, I am a little wary of whether they will fit ‘perfectly’ into my rather uncooperative ears. Maybe it’s because I am yet to find earbuds that actually stay put. That being said, I would be interested to see what kind of woman will support this campaign. Women are a tough audience to convince. They are not like men who must own every tech gadget that comes their way.
Available with a 24-hour battery life case, similar to Apple’s AirPods, the Swings Bluetooth Earrings support AI Services like Alexa, Siri and Google. The lightweight earrings are available in multiple colour combinations, including silver, gold or rose gold. Also, it’s worth noting that Swings Swarovski Crystals are available in gold, silver or rose gold for $349.
Starting from an early bird price of $129.00, you will get one pair of earrings, charging case, comfort cap backs and four ear tips. Covered by a one year warranty, you should expect delivery around April 2019. Back the campaign.
