True Wireless Detangled

A KitSound gifting guide for audio lovers
We know what you’re thinking: “What’s this all about, I already own wireless earphones, don’t I?” Yes, you do, but technology has done it again and moved on, which means there’s now another (fairly) new kid on the block.
Your wireless earphones are still wireless earphones (of course), but now they are more ‘wire-less’ than ‘wireless’, as your current earbuds are still connected with a wire. Whereas this new technology is really wireless, because they sit completely free in your ear with the only connection being through Bluetooth.
So just to complicate things, these are being called ‘True Wireless’, instead of just ‘wireless’.
Still confused? Don’t worry, we will explain.
❝One more time, what’s the difference between wireless and true wireless?❞
Wireless, as most people know it now, disconnects us from our devices. It means you can listen to your wireless earphones by connecting via Bluetooth to your smartphone. But despite this freedom from the old jack connection, they are still connected by a wire either behind or over your head.
This is where True Wireless technology comes in and ups the game. It does its thing and then…magic! The wire connecting your earbuds is gone. This delivers a new level of listening, freedom, and comfort. Whether you’re working, running or commuting, you now have ultimate audio freedom.
❝Magic, really? Come on, explain how it works❞.
Ok, ok, it’s not magic, but it is really clever. Here’s how it works…
First of all, it’s still Bluetooth.
True wireless earphones still connect or pair to your device the same way any of your other wireless or Bluetooth enabled devices do: It’s through a radio signal, with most devices using Bluetooth technology as standard. This makes it quick and easy to pair up your tech with multiple devices.
Best thing since sliced bread really.
Secondly, it talks to both earbuds at the same time.
Well, sort of. Bluetooth-enabled devices will have a Bluetooth radio chip and software built-in, so you can easily connect your devices. Before, the wire connecting your earbuds would determine left from right stereo. But now with True Wireless tech, your smartphone’s Bluetooth will send out a radio signal to one earbud, which will relay the signal to the other, determining left from right.
It’s a bit like having two mini satellite dishes in the shape of comfortable earbuds.
And thirdly, the set-up might be slightly different.
Every True Wireless product will come with their own set of instructions as setup may differ slightly. It’s likely that you will need to pair the earbuds together, before then connecting them to your Bluetooth enabled device. But once you have done that, the next time you turn on your Bluetooth your device should automatically pair with the earbuds.
That means you can just press play and go every time. It’s that simple.
❝Ok, that’s clear now. So what does KitSound have in store for True Wireless?❞
