HTC launches new TWS earbuds with ANC and an IP5X certification
2021 has been yet another relatively quiet year for HTC's mobile device business. However, it has returned today (October 26, 2021) to some extent with good news for those who would like their AirPod clones with this OEM's classic branding slapped on them.
The Taiwanese company has chosen the rather unimaginative name of "HTC True Wireless Earbuds Plus" for these accessories. It has, at least, striven to get them to stand out with not 1 but 2 types of noise isolation: ANC and ENC. The OEM has not outlined how either work in any detail, (ENC, for example, may be software-based) although it mentions that there are dual mics per earbuds that facilitate both.
The HTC True Wireless Earbuds Plus also feature touch controls for track, ANC and call management or voice-assistant activation. Their maker claims that the buds might last up to 6 hours on a single charge, although their case contains enough juice for up to 3 full power-ups throughout the day.
HTC's True Wireless Earbuds Plus are now listed on its European Vive.com webstore in black or white colorways, at a price of €84. However, they may also be found on Amazon.com for US$70, or $10 less with an on-page coupon for a limited time.
