SenCbuds: The next big thing for earphones?

17 Feb 16

SenCbuds is working to develop and release the first earphones that can automatically detect when to pause music. With the help of patent pending sensor technology, SenCbuds instantly know when they are taken out of the user’s ear, and pause the media accordingly.

SenCbuds unique functionality is powered by motion-sensitive, patent pending Smart Sense Technology (SST) located inside the earbuds.

SST allows SenCbuds to instantly pause music, podcasts or movies when taken out of the user’s ear, and to restart when they are put back in. According to the company, this function can be useful during workouts, when working in an open office space, while travelling, and in many day-to-day situations.

SenCbuds come with a management system to avoid tangled cables and also features buttons that can be used to control music and accept calls manually in case the earphone’s battery runs out.

On top of this, according to the company the SenCbuds are designed to provide the quality audio and as such are equipped with 9mm drivers, sensitivity to 98DB, an impedance of 16 and a frequency range of 5Hz to 25kHz.

The SenCbuds come with a built-in microphone, works with iOS and Android, have a battery that lasts up to 17 days on one charge, and additionally feature noise isolation through memory foam, a do-not-disturb light and a gold plated audio jack.

The company has established an Indiegogo campaign to aid in the development and release of the earphones. Here backers can fund the campaign and pre-order a pair of SenCbuds.
