HarmoniQ Labs' upcoming TWS earbuds are 3D-printed for their comfort- and acoustics-focused features
HarmoniQLabs is a start-up that concerns itself with "wearable Hi-Fi sound equipment". Its next upcoming product are the Lytte HarmoniQ TWS earbuds. As with many such products from emerging brands, they will introduce themselves to the market through crowdfunding in 2020.
Unlike most of these devices, however, the Lytte HarmoniQs are 3D-printed to an Omni-Acoustic-Design (OAD) in skin- (and planet-) friendly resin. Their maker claims that this process and material has been chosen in order to conserve durability and rigidity in these buds.
The company also asserts that these properties control distortion in reproducing audio, reduces ambient noise by up to -15dB and also result in an earbud shape that enhances their ergonomics.
3D printing also gives each individual Lytte HarmoniQ a unibody form-factor. This results in an IPX4 ingress-protection rating; then again, the buds also incorporate microphones for voice-assistant support and touch controls. HarmoniQ Labs also estimates their total battery life at a maximum of 35 hours.
These new accessories also feature aptX and Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo (TWS) Technology. They are set to launch via Indiegogo on July 13, 2020, although the OEM has not given any hint as to their price at yet.
