Palm, the company known for its Palm Phone, which was a joy for tiny phone users is back and this time, it is catering to a market that is much larger than its original target audience.
The company has announced its new truly wireless earbuds, the Palm Buds Pro, all set to retail for $129 with support for ANC and a couple of other nifty features.
What Do Palm’s Palm Buds Pro Have to Offer?
Palm’s Palm Buds Pro are available for pre-order for just $99, which is a discounted price. The earbuds feature a design that reminds most of Apple’s AirPods Pro, with the earbuds featuring an extended stem, silicone style eartips and a long charging case, but, unlike the white hue on the Apple offering, these are available in a Satin Black hue.
The big feature is ANC, but, truth be told, given the vast amount of earbuds using ANC, this is not that special, however, their presence is nonetheless welcome on mid-range earbuds. Users can use the buds on iOS and Android, with Palm claiming studio-grade sound with the 10mm drivers.
Battery life seems decent, with Palm stating that the earbuds last for four and a half hours with ANC enabled, with 5.5 hours of runtime with ANC off.
The earbuds also feature an IPX4 water resistance rating and use 6 microphones, which will surely aid your calling experience. Interested buyers can head to Palm’s site, where you can also buy separate silicon cases for some style. They will be available via Amazon as well, with availability starting November 9.
What Else is Going on in the World of Truly Wireless Earbuds?
This comes just a week after Apple launched the AirPods 3. The AirPods third generation feature a design similar to the Apple AirPods Pro, but the smartphone giant seems to think that this is a new design, we will let them have this one, so yes, the AirPods 3rd generation feature a “new design”.
