Palm enters the earbuds game with a sleek and affordable model equipped with ANC
The Palm Buds Pro claim to offer “booming bass” and “crystal clear” audio.
Palm will be trying its hand in the earbuds game with a pair of true wireless earbuds that aim to deliver quality sound at a very competitive price.
The team behind the Palm Buds Pro includes former designers from Beats and Samsung, who set their goals on introducing a pair of quality earbuds at an inclusive price point.
“The Palm Buds Pro’s biggest differentiator is the emphasis on studio grade audio and enhanced bass,” said Howard Nuk, co-founder at Palm.
The buds come equipped with 10mm dynamic drivers to deliver full-bodied sound with “crisp highs, enhanced mids, and thumping bass”.
There are six onboard microphones – three in each bud – to accurately monitor environmental sounds and check playback for noise cancelling, as well as to let users take calls.
There’s also Ambient Mode, which mixes in environmental sounds to let users stay aware of their surroundings. This could be especially useful for safety while crossing streets, or to listen to transit announcements at a train station or airport.
Battery life on the Palm Buds Pro is stated to last 4.5 hours with ANC enabled. With the included charging case, Palm claims users can get over 24 hours of total playback.
Other specifications include IPX4 water and sweat resistance – useful for listeners with active lifestyles – as well as support for Siri and Google Assistant.
The Palm Buds Pro comes in black and is available for pre-order now at $99. After its 9 November release, it will retail for $129.
