SenCbuds Self-Pausing Earbuds

How annoying is it to be jamming to your music in the office only to have to remove your earbuds every time someone talks to you and then have to reset your music again and again? Well Vivnnovation created by New Zealand sound engineer Dhaval Tanna Dhaval has the answer. He has created SenCbuds which pauses your music or media player when you remove them from your ears. It will then resume playing your audio when placed back into your ears.

SenCbuds work by using a patent-pending smart sensor to detect when the headphones have been removed from inside of the ear. The ear tips are created with self-moulding silicone while the earbuds are fashioned using SaniPolymers, an anti-bacterial polymer additive developed by ParxPlastics. When the polymer is combined with plastic it creates a special antibacterial coating to prevent germ build up.


The earbuds are attached to a compact roll-up clip. This clip is built with the ability to switch back and forth between Android and iPhone products with the flip of a switch. To boot, this same clip has the ability to adjust volume, answer and end calls while the earbuds can pause and play your music. The roll up clip is also a great way to store the earbuds to avoid premature tear.

Sound-wise, the SenCbuds should reach a frequency range between 5 – 25,000 Hertz using 9 mm drivers on an impedance of 16 ohms. Built with an internal battery to power the smart sensor technology, the earbuds are said to last up to 17 days on a single charge. The battery should be able to handle up to 500+ charges – equal to 20 years.

This product is definitely a useful tool for the office. Vivnnovaton is currently running a Kickstarter campaign selling the earbuds for $50 rather than the anticipated retail price of $99. The campaign has 12 more days to go so interested backers should hurry to grab a pair.
