Wireless headphones are great if you hate getting cables tangled up, especially if you’re walking around or worse, when you’re at the gym as the tangled cables are an unnecessary distraction. However the problem with wireless headphones is that because they run on battery, when its battery is dead, so is your listening experience.
That’s a problem that PUGZ is trying to solve. PUGZ is a pair of wireless headphones that has been launched on Kickstarter. The headphones are a pretty standard pair of earbuds, but one of its unique features is its ability to charge itself by connecting to your phone. The headphones will come with a small magnetic device clipped onto it.
Whenever your headphones is running low on juice, all you’d need to do is plug the other end of the cable into your smartphone, clip it to the magnetic connector, and you’re good to go! Of course this also means that your smartphone’s battery is being drained too, but if you have enough battery to spare, why not?
PUGZ will be available in two styles – sealed or leaking. The former will provide passive noise cancellation, while the latter will let you hear a bit of your surroundings, which might be a better idea if you’re walking about all day. Its creators are also boasting a battery life of about 4.5 hours of standard use and will play nicely with pretty much all devices that support Bluetooth.
Reception to the headphones appears to be pretty good as they have managed to raise over $200,000, far surpassing their initial goal of $50,000. If you’d like to pledge your support you still can. Just pop on over to its Kickstarter page for the details.
