The information was leaked through VentureBeat, and very little information was given to them about the exact technical specifications. What they do know, is that the earbuds will be touch controlled and water resistant. To add to their impressive functionality, they are rumored to be standalone fitness trackers as well as small MP3 players capable of storing music. This would mean that you no longer need anything but your headphones to track and enjoy your exercise.
VentureBeat claims that one earbud will function as the storage device, featuring a 4GB flash memory to hold music and audio files.
There’s no word on price yet, but they are likely to retail in the couple of hundred dollar range, matching up with other wireless headphones on the market. These new devices are one of the first commercially available wireless storage listening devices from a major brand. Other similar products have launched successful funding campaigns in the past months and years, but larger companies are just now getting into the market. When these new headphones are released, will you be getting your hands on a pair?
