RHA has unveiled its newest earbuds, the truly wireless TrueConnect. These in-ear headphones connect to charge via USB-C, have a five hour battery life, and use a charging case that can hold another 20 hours. The fast charging on the case can charge your new earbuds to 50% in less than 15 minutes. They will use Bluetooth 5.0 for high-quality wireless streaming, and they are IPX5 rated for resistance to sweat, splashes, and weather. That battery life is nothing to sneeze at considering other highly-rated earbuds, like the Jabra Elite 65t, don’t last nearly as long.
The design includes a stem, similar to Apple’s AirPods, that sits flush with the ear where RHA has stuffed a larger antenna for improved calls and connectivity. That design also helps bring the mic closer to the user’s mouth. These are fully compatible with all operating systems and can even integrate with voice assistants like Siri or Google Assistant. The buttons on the earbuds provide music playback control and access to the aforementioned assistants.
These earbuds will come with a three-year warranty. You can pre-order them through RHA’s website for $169.95 right now, or wait for wider availability when they release October 18. If you’re in the market for earbuds like this right now, you should look at the Bose SoundSport Free for $199 or the $178 Sony WF-SP700N with active noise-cancelling.
