Have you heard of PUGZ? Well, we just have and boy are we impressed. PUGZ is a set of wireless earbuds that can you can use and charge “at the same d-mn time!” 2 Chainz anyone?
PUGZ Wireless Earbuds Charged Through Your Phone
A huge issue with any wireless device is it’s battery life. Many developments of wireless buds opt for a microUSB port that can be used with a wall adapter. Truly wireless buds usually go for rechargeable cases that store anywhere from two to five charges. However, in my time reporting on headphones I don’t recall encountering a pair that can charge while in use. And if I have the fact that I don’t remember is proof of how far and wide they come.
PUGZ uses a unique charging interface called Squircle – it is neither a square nor circle – to get the job done. The patent pending interface is what allows one to use their wireless buds while they are charging. It is built as a self-guiding magnetic connector comprised of 18K gold for better conductivity and of course style. White and gold is always a nice combo IMHO! PUGZ earphones can also be charged through a computer if need be.
The earphones are designed with two different types of tips for different types of listening experiences. The “leaking” model resembles that of an Apple earbud, but angled and a little more oblong at one end. Leaking is fashioned to keep you more in-tune with your surroundings. The ear gel design directs audio into your ear, but lets you hear a bit of your environment. The “sealed” tip is more of a standard, rounded silicone tip. Sealed provides you with passive noise cancellation which isolates all surrounding noise and lets you focus on your audio.
And now that we mention music, let’s get down to the specs. PUGZ resonates over a frequency range of 20-20,000 Hertz. The New York based company advises the headphones will deliver deep bass without compromising the treble.
PUGZ also gives users the ability to take calls in addition to listening to music. AptX technology promises crystal clear audio while Bluetooth 4.1 should enable a solid connection up to 30 meters away from your cellphone. The headphones can run for up to 4.5 hours on one charge and can be re-juiced in less than one hour. I’m feeling it!
They are water, sweat, and dust proof with the ability to secure around your neck with a magnet locking feature. Perfect for working out or everyday commuting. If interested, PUGZ can be yours via PUGZ.com for $169 with shipping included.
