When true wireless earbuds first hit the market back in 2015, they were a pretty rudimentary piece of tech, with bulky casings, spotty Bluetooth connectivity, and subpar battery life. Since that time, they’ve steadily become more refined, growing ever-smaller in their design and increasingly impressive in their audio performance. As such, these days, the market is awash with offerings making some pretty bold claims.
But nothing quite like these. Billed as the “smallest and lightest in the world,” these Earin A-3 earbuds are certainly incredibly tiny — not much bigger than the size of a dime, in fact. However, just because they’re small in stature doesn’t mean they’re lacking in performance. On the contrary — Earin has managed to squeeze in a boatload of features such as a 14.3mm dynamic driver, four different microphones, and a battery good for five hours of playtime (up to 30 using the included aluminum charging case). And because of their unique open audio design, they sit much more comfortably than invasive earbuds, with passive noise and wind reduction to keep sound clear and automatic placement recognition so that you can wear them in either ear.
