Noise-cancellation without the bulk
The fact that advanced technologies get smaller over time shouldn’t surprise us, and yet we’re still impressed by the ability of modern in-ear headphones to pack in active noise cancellation without adding extra bulk.
The Libratone Track+ wireless in-ear headphones continue this trend. Yes, they still have a cable connecting the two earbuds (unlike the likes of the true wireless Sony WF-1000X), but they’re pretty sleek all the same.
With a battery life of 8 hours total, it appears the sleek design hasn’t come at the expense of playtime.
Four levels of cancellation
Like the Libratone products that have proceeded it, the Track+ features four levels of noise cancellation, allowing you to let in varying levels of outside noise such as traffic and train announcements.
You can also disable noise-cancellation entirely and have the headphones’s external mics passthrough noise from around you so you can hold a conversation without having to take them out of your ears.
The new headphones will be available in the summer for £169 (around $230 / AU$290) in both white and black colors. A cheaper version which lacks noise cancellation will be available for £120 (around $160 / AU$210).
